  • Recent galaco stuff makes me wish she got an AI upgrade so bad, I think it’d favour her so much although odds are pretty slim 😩 Kou shibasaki’s voice is so beautiful
    Reading abt the Kagepro copyright situation & wishing even more that IA/ONE weren’t handled by 1st Place 😶

    It's real shame, I am fond of IA and ONE as products, especially became fond of IA's Cevio vbs, but all that's been going on with 1st PLACE recently makes me just feel so yucky, I do share the sentiment with blackout that I wish they'd be in someone else's hands.

    Pico has said the biggest part of it but also their general handling of the series has been pretty awful especially after Jin left the company circa 2018-ish, the general silence on any previously announced projects like the new LN or Mekakucity Reload anime while constantly milking the series with merch and weird investments like an overprice Kagepro smartphone (?), with all that culminating in the NFT announcement fiasco during the latest Kagepro anniversary 😶 most recently it was found out that apparently the Kagepro IP has been sold to some incredibly random company that sponsors some football club and does golf lessons???? The Jin staff account recently tweeted that they don’t even know what’s up with the IP ownership anymore and it’s still all under investigation.

    It’s… very messy and it’s pretty clear at this point that Jin & 1st Place had a pretty bad falling out, but I think this most recent discovery rly pushed it into completely ridiculous with this apparent discard of the series & their disrespect of Jin in general like he wasn’t the backbone of most of their success during the past decade or so

    And while this is not even close to as serious as the Kagepro situation I also got my bone to pick with their handling of IA & ONE’s characters as well & how trying to push them as these virtual idol types feels a bit too detached from their original Vocaloid scene roots so my view of 1st Place has gotten pretty poor as time passed (and I used to think pretty highly of them in this regard!!!! The IA compilation albums they used to release rly were some of the best) but I rly enjoy their Cevio banks as well though despite all their fuckery.. IA AI might be my favourite version of her BUT on that same note of how they handle them they really kind of fumbled her initial showing with demo choices & etc..

    it just feels like they lost vision of why ppl liked IA and it’s upsetting seeing the wasted potential of who once was my #1 Vocaloid fjfkslflh

    Admittedly, I feel like it's also worth noting Jin has had bad fallouts with both Crypton and other producers in the past, so this situation might not be ENTIRELY on 1st place....
    Eye twitching at random ppl hating on V6 and claiming Gumi AI is just her V4 trained with well tuned VSQs… lord spare my brain
    Still find it odd how like, not advertised the Dynamics feature on Cevio seems to be. Idk about CCS but it makes such a big difference on AI cuz it actually makes the song bank more powerful/softer & it even adapts the auto tuning when you do it. Maybe it’s just the general lack of eng resources that makes it seem this way but it took me a while to even find out about it and it was a game changer when I did!! I’ve definitely seen others who didn’t know about it either & I’m pretty sure it’s been there since release. It’s pretty effective with every bank but it gagged me the most with IA AI cuz at her most powerful she rly brings out those Lia pipes outta her lol

    Is there a Dynamics feature? 👀

    I feel like most banks don't react to dynamics that much. Although the banks from the isotope series are very reactive to dynamics
    Just found out about the dynamics tab on cevio AI and damn why was it hidden by default?? It works pretty nicely to make vocals sound powerful or softer which is all I wanted 😭
    SEVEN (neutrino) really is what I wanted either of the Meika twins to sound like when a Kotori Koiwai vocaloid was announced
    Kafu having more uploads than any other recently released vocal synth. Talent won!

    Not hard when most of her uploads were commissioned and released every other day for months, I suppose. :clara_ani_lili: I just hope the era of Endless Kafu Demos is finally behind us! That got overwhelming fast.

    Oh true, but even outside her demos she seems to be getting a pretty good lot of daily uploads ever since her release, their long hype demo campaign seems to have worked at least lool. I personally really enjoyed a lot of the demos that they came up with so I didn't mind it much haha but it's good she's finally out for anyone to buy
