Does anyone else have the Synth V starter pack, and if so, do you know where to go to redeem the coupon for a free voice? I checked AHS's website, but I can't seem to find any info there. The instructions made it seem like there should be a way to redeem the voicebank code when you install the editor, but I'm not seeing an option to do that.
Anyone remember when I said I wanted to make a music theory thread 4 months ago? Just after I said that I was slammed with work, but now I have free time again! So I've been trying to figure out how to organize this in terms of its topics because it's a lot and here's what I have so far:
This is the order I was thinking of using:
- Basic Pitch/Rhythm + Music Notation (Key sig, time sig, counting + takadimi, hemiolas, scales, intervals, etc)
- Chord Types (Triads, Seventh Chords)
- Roman Numeral Analysis + Chord Inversions
- Lead Sheet Analysis
- Sequences + Harmonic Progression
- Non-Chord Tones
- Secondary Dominants
- Neapolitan Chords (bII)
- Augmented 6th Chords (German, French, Italian)
- Enharmonic Chord Spellings and Modulation
- More Scales (Whole Tone, octatonic, major/minor pentatonic)
- Twelve Tone Serialism
This is stuff that I definitely want to mention but idk where to put it:
- Sight singing
- How to transcribe chord progressions
- Part writing (4-part harmony, open vs closed intervals, keyboard vs chorale style (SATB))
- Music structure (motive, period (+types), sentence, sonata form, ternary, rondo, binary, etc)
I'll probably come up with more topics and revise this list as I go over my notes but that's what I have so far. There are some concepts like twelve tone serialism that I can't find examples of in vocal synth music. At the moment I'm thinking of pulling from non-vocal synth music for that one, but I'm open to suggestions. I've been drafting the first couple posts and they've gotten really long, so I'll probably split up the pitch and rhythm parts into different posts and use spoiler tags for each subtopic (or something along those lines). Anyways, I just wanted to give an update since I hadn't mentioned the thread in a while. If anyone happens to see that I'm forgetting important concepts feel free to let me know.
I remember people speculating that the Synth V Gen 1 vbs would stop working on August 31st, so I checked and they're still working for me. I have the demo vbs + editor, not the paid version. I checked the license activation and it says that they will never expire which is really nice!
Hi! I realize that I haven’t posted much here aside from asking/answering questions every once in a while and I’d like to be more active. I’ve been thinking about making a thread that relates music theory to Vocaloid music. Something along the lines of me attempting to summarize a concept in music theory and then finding an example of that concept in Vocaloid music? It might devolve into me just attempting to analyze different Vocaloid songs, but I’ll definitely try to explain how I’m interpreting things/my way of thinking as I go along. If I were to do that, then where should I put it?
Does anyone know if the 4-in-1 discount on Anicute has a set end date or not? I remember that one sale for SV ends on September 15, but I don’t remember which one that is. I’m trying to decide between that and Gakupo V4 since Internet Co’s sale ends on Friday.
Today I found out about this Utau producer who doesn’t want to be named and I just want to say that I really like their music. Here’s a cover Crusher made of one of their songs if anyone is interested: As far as I can tell it’s ok to share their music as long as you don’t say their name (if it’s not just let me know and I’ll take this down).
Internet Co restocked their Otomachi Una + V4 Editor bundle on Amazon and their website:
I'm not sure how they did it, but for anyone who doesn't have the V4 editor this might be a good way to get it. It seems like it’s slightly cheaper on their website, but you’d probably need a forwarding service of some sort to get it: コンピュータミュージック総合オンラインショップ shop.ssw.jpへようこそ！
Does anyone happen to know what differences there are between VY1V3 and VY1V4? I know V4 has way more voicebanks, but I also saw a cover that Circus-P/Cheezitsareyummy posted a while ago mentioning that the tone of her V3 is different from any of the V4 banks. I'm trying to figure out if I should get V3 Neo since I can't find V4 anywhere.
Is anyone looking for a copy of Rin/Len Act 1? I think I just found a listing for it on Mercari, but I'm not entirely sure since the listing uses doesn't specify if it is Act 1/2. It is the act 1 boxart, though.
@peaches2217 I just had a random cover idea: Oliver and Len singing Into the Unknown from Frozen 2 with Oliver doing the upper part and Len doing Elsa’s part. I don’t really know how that would sound, but I figured I should mention it in case you’re interested (obviously if you don’t like the idea, don’t feel obligated to do it, I’m just throwing it out here). I don’t plan on doing it since I don’t have Oliver.
I just found a copy of VY1V4! Of course it's an auction and I have no clue if the seller is reliable or if any of the activation codes have been used up. At least the seller has 201 positive reviews and 0 negative ones. I'm still deciding whether or not I should place a bid. I haven't seen anyone selling VY1V4 since it was discontinued so I might do it.
