does anyone know how to make alterego work?

Questions about producing? Ask them here.
hey there! first post on the lmms forums, so uh, sorry if this is kinda tangled and incoherent. not sure how to ask these kinds of questions! ^^"

so, basically, i downloaded the AlterEgo plugin. it looks really neat and it's free, so my broke freshman year ass was like "hmm i need this" and in theory it's really cool! the voice bank i have is lovely, and once i figure it out, i can't wait to use it.

one problem: i can't figure out how to use it. and i'm beginning to wonder if it's even compatible with lmms... ^^" it works fine if i'm just using it for "ahhhh" vocals and so on but the second i have different kinds of lyrics it gets all tangled! there's no real way to know what sound is going to come out. Like, I'm not really sure how to put this into words, but...

Basically, let's say I want to input just "Hello." I put in the two syllables into the VST, and then input them as notes on the PianoRoll. But there's no way of attaching any vocal sound to a note, so if I click something wrong it'll recite backwards ("llo-heh" if u will).

I know this all sounds like total jargon and again this is a total shot in the dark, but if anyone knows how to make this dang thing work and actually hold on to lyrics that'd be dope! (I've only been using lmms a few months and I've been playing it relatively safe the whole time, so a lot of talk about it still goes way over my head... if my frazzled attempt at an explanation didn't give it away, I still don't know a lot of the lingo.)

tldr alterego makes me want to dead, can any of yall help a gal out?
This video explains what is happening.

No idea if that can be fixed for you're case.

Oh sorry I took so long to respond guys. :P

Yeah, using it was fun. And it has been awhile since I used it.
Installing it was the easy part. But when I tried to use it with the add ons, it crashed my PC.
Probably because it needs, a good bit of RAM, to do all of the other cool vocal stuff.
I'll definitely test it out again, as soon as I can get more RAM, in my PC. :)

For now, I think slipstick can help here.
Since if I remember correctly, he was able to make some sentences, and do other cool stuff.
WHOOP very late reply but

yeeeaaah installing it was easy but making it actually, like, SAY things has proven troublesome... ;_; like, i can type stuff in and make her say things in theory, but getting certain words/sounds to stick with certain notes is my problem ahaha

Yeah. That takes a good bit of practice and experimenting. :D
Even I was a bit confused, when I first tried to do it too. :)
