i found an artist recently that i really like. they have an upbeat electronica sorta sound with a robotically filtered vocal on each one of the tracks. the artist is anonymous, and their 'mascot' is a little robot making music for the world to get happier, which is why they have artificial sounding vocals. really cute concept imo. but my point is: my brother was over at my house earlier to visit and work on some stuff; he poked his head in when he heard one of the songs by this artist coming from my PC speakers. (this was before the vocals started). when the vocals did start we went like this:
him: "oh! so this is a Vocaloid song?"
me: "no its just a voice with effects put on it to sound artificial"
him: "...so a Vocaloid song?"
i guess he thinks "Vocaloid" means a niche anime version of autotune or something? I explained that its probably just a real voice and that Vocaloid works off of prerecorded samples, but i still don't think he completely understands. the amount of misunderstandings ive seen people have about what the word 'vocaloid' means is astonishing to me lololol
I've decided to keep my producer account and general/fandom account separate from each other. generally I've found that, when someone's art and personality are in the same vessel, it can get hard to follow them for one or the other thing (unless they're an actor or idol or something along those lines). in other words, i'm not gonna post music or art online as Andantina. anonymity is one of my favorite parts of the Vocal synth community and I think I'd have a better relationship with it if I organized my online presence more discreetly. that being said, that doesn't mean you're never gonna hear my work! you'll just not know if its me or not oooooo spooky--
for real though, I'm sorry if anyone was looking forward to hearing my music on here ;-; maybe someone will find my alter ego and share something I've made on Music Releases? who knows!
Found this old cover of lorde – tennis court when I was clearing out my synthv v1 files. The other covers I made right when I got the software were really half-assed, but im proud of this one a lot.
