Just passing by to say that GALACO IS AMAZING, I love her waay more than I expected.
Her Vocaloid vbs are super high quality and smooth, and her talk bank is super fun to use and very clear. She’s criminally underrated.
Btw, I also wanted to tell anyone(if they don’t know already) that her talk bank is still available on Sonicwire! I bought her this morning and she was still bundled with it. So if you missed the chance to get her by the 10th on the Vocaloid shop, you can still get her there (I suppose they’ll continue bundling her with it until they run out of codes).
I’m heavily considering impulsively getting Galaco for her talk bank, but idk if I’m already too late rip (her page still mentions it though, so idk), and I’m still unsure whether she would work with my tuning style or not given she’s not a voice type I’m used to working with ;;;;. If I decided to get her on Sonicwire soon would she still be bundled with it?
Ahhh what should I do, why am I so indecisive (I think her voice is so distinctive, so it’s not like I wouldn’t use her, but I recently got the Kagamines, this wasn’t planned at all)
I was able to find Rune Factory 5 for 2400 yen in a Book-off near where I live! I've been wanting to give it a try for months now, I'm so looking forward to starting playing! (I'm still playing Rf4, and Pokémon violet, AND a visual novel, but whatever, I can manage adding it up, I think)
I know the mixing is probably terrible, but there's only so much I can do rn with 20€ headphones rip, I'll probably wait to come back to release the full cover with a more decent mix. However, could anyone please give me some feedback on how the tuning is coming out?
Soo, I forgot to say that yesterday I bought myself the Kagamines as a late Christmas gift (my parents had given me some money to spend on whatever I wanted, but I was a bit unsure about what to get, so I basically procrastinated on the choice and it suddenly was the 30th ).
I’ve considered upgrading to their v4x for quite a bit of time, so yesterday I decided it was high time to do something about it and went to a store to buy them!
I’m having SOO much fun using them, they’re so perfect and I’ve basically spent all today’s morning tuning … I really was missing tuning in V4.
As a Rin stan, I decided to immediately put her to use on a cover of one of my favorite “newly-discovered” songs (from what I think is one of my favorite producers, moreover! ^^) and she’s basically tailor made for it, I’m so happy!!
It’s also the first time I’m not suffering while tuning the Kagamines lol (I love ACT2, but sometimes they really make me want to flip the desk, because fixing their problems isn’t exactly something I’d call relaxing, or pleasing at all ).
Anyway, I might post a WIP soon, the only thing is that I’m concerned about the mixing, as I don’t have my audio interface and studio headphones here in Japan…
I’ll see what I can do!
It’s been months since I visited here and I hope everyone is doing well and having some amazing Christmas holidays! ^^
Sorry for my disappearance, but those past months have been… “busy”, let’s say, even though “difficult” may be the right word here. Trying to sum it up a bit, I basically am now in Japan as an exchange student and will stay here until February, which is wonderful in itself: I met a lot of wonderful people and am for sure enjoying the experience!
However, I had to say I underwent some pretty rough times here and I’m still recovering from that: it may have been apparent, but I suffer from anxiety quite a lot of times. I’m kind of used to not feeling always good due to it, but somehow in Japan it got even worse. I unfortunately developed severe insomnia due to it and I started not sleeping at all for several days in a row for what have been at least a month, while being overwhelmed with worries. Of course, this had caused a domino effect which led me to experience anxiety even more frequently and to a greater degree: I started skipping classes due to being too tired to be awake and went down the spiral of feeling extremely guilty about it (among other things), my mood swings went worst, and every minor inconvenient could cause me to have anxiety attacks. Things became too much to bear for me, and in the end I finally decided to ask for help and am now taking some medication to be able to deal with it.
Ok, so I came back home from a short holiday and took the time to fiddle around with Cevio AI searching for the dynamics makers and I finally found them! Now, why are they even hiding it from the ruler, how is a person supposed to know there's a hidden yet such useful feature if you don't explicitly say it bsbjxjn . This brings Cevio editing to another level though, and I'm super happy with the fact that Sekai handles it particularly well ^^
Sorry for the brief disappearance: I’ve been on holiday in Marseille to visit my sister there . It was my first time visiting the city, but I have to say, I really grew fond of it and we had so much fun overall!
Not me starting a cover with Minato just to try out how Sekai would sound with it and impulsively decide to continue with her; she's soo good, I feel like she's my absolute favourite . Now using my other voices would be even harder though rip, she's perfect for everything (I might post the Minato one too though, if Soundcloud lets me do it)
I’ve just finished mixing a cover and was ready to upload it to Soundcloud, but they removed it saying I don’t have the rights for it…
Is there any way to work around this? It has never happened to me until now and I don’t know what to do. Should I just give up and post it on a different streaming service like Youtube?
Guys, I’m finally back again ~
How is everybody doing?
I’d like to update a bit: I’ve finally finished my exams for the summer session today!
Also, if everything goes well, I’m leaving for Japan in September to spend 6 months there thanks to a university exchange.
I’m so excited and I hope I’ll be able to improve my Japanese, as well as make some new friends.
As for vocal synths stuff, I managed to take advantage of recent coupon sales on dlsite and I bought Sekai’s starter pack two weeks ago!
As you may know, I do not like her company due to the nft situation; however, I ended up loving both her voice and character so much and I wasn’t able to let the opportunity go again. (1/2)
I managed to carve out some time this evening to watch the Miku Expo rewind and I’m so glad I did it! A friend of mine and I decided to watch and comment on it together as it was airing; it was a lot of fun and it actually has made me even more excited for the ones coming next.
Sorry for disappearing again lately, but exams are getting closer and I’m having a hard time balancing study time and free time .
I’ve just read about Chifuyu though and I’m now soo excited to hear her!! I tend to love voice types like hers a lot ^^
