■ special symbols
・- → [-] * The pronunciation will extend the vowel part of the preceding note.
・Br1 , Br2 , Br3 , Br4 , Br5 → [br1 , br2 , br3 , br4 , br5] * Breath sound is inserted. the color of the Note will turn black.
・Sil → [Sil] * Silence is inserted. Also, the color of the Note will turn black.
・Asp → [Asp] * Silence will be inserted, but the pitch will be maintained, so the portamento will work. Also, the color of the Note will turn black.

* Case is not distinguished when entering lyrics.
* If the lyrics cannot be converted to phonetic symbols (such as when half-width x is entered), it will be [Sil].
* If you enter the phonetic symbol directly in the lyrics (tS, etc.), it will be [Sil].
* Characters such as hiragana / katakana / stretch bar “-” / symbols other than half-width English characters are removed from the lyrics.
* If you enter “$ ra!”, It will be only “ra” and will be converted to [4 a].
* If you leave the lyrics input field blank and click OK, the lyrics / phonetic symbols will not be changed.
Therefore, if you enter “$!”, The characters other than the lyrics characters will be removed and the rest will be empty, so they will not be changed.

* The above specifications may be updated in future updates. (As of 2021)
