  • So the commonly-stated that Fukase didn't sell well comes from ONE sentence in an article very shortly after he released. Hm.
    Hmm, according to a convo on Twitter, part of the reason Merli fizzled out so fast in Japan was because the JP fandom thought having basically the only dark-skinned JP vocal (at the time) be officially evil via backstory was racist?

    I never actually noticed that....

    She also released fairly shortly after Miku V3, I doubt that helped (poor Hio was in the same month!)

    Yeeeah I feel bad about that because merli is actually a gorgeous voicebank, and she has a lovely design. I never look into vocaloids official backstories and personalities really, so I had actually forgotten that Lapis is supposed to be like good and light and Merli like....hurts people when she sings? wasnt that her backstory? idk weird

    Oof. I never considered that, because I guess I didn't realize she was supposed to be evil.

    ...ReviveMerli2020 anyone?
    in theory i'd like to go to a Miku Expo, but in practice all of the following make me really anxious and uncomfortable/miserable:
    -loud noises
    -crowds
    -big screens

    What a coincidence, today I was thinking about why I probably wouldn't ever go to a Crypton event. Crowds scare me, my first and last anime convention was terrifying (even though it was super small, like maybe 100 people at best), tons of people wearing costumes and shaking their light sticks, having to sit through songs that you don't like, having to travel... Hearing about all that confusing lottery stuff and VIP tickets and standing in like for 12 hours makes me feel even more unsettled. : {

    I've always thought it was a shame Meiko would almost certainly have a song I dislike :/
    Hm, I have a song idea but it would feature exactly four singers (long story) and I don't wanna do all girls b/c i don't use my guys much but two of the singers HAVE to be girls (long story), a third leans really heavily that way, and one guy with 3 girls seems weirdly unbalanced

    "have you even tried it" no but that won't stop me from overthinking it
    For what it's worth, some people are mentioning using Buyee for Mercari- last time i checked- which was about six months ago, so it may have changed- Buyee's Mercari service was limited to certain listings, so many of the best deals were missing.

    There are a few things you can't buy, but they mostly come from the same sellers, and they're usually limited to merchandise. All of the VBs I've seen are eligible for international purchase and shipping!
    Stupid self challenge: Make an EP or album over the holidays.

    Bonus challenge: Every vocaloid i own appears at least once.

    Yo DefiantKitsune! You mentioned in a thread that someone had emailed Zero G about new Vocaloids. Do you have a link to this email? I'm just excited so I want to read it. :D
    DefiantKitsune
    DefiantKitsune
    Unfortunately, the person declined to share the email because there was personal info involved in it. (I wanted to see it too aaaaaaaaaa)
    It was angel at the vocaloid wiki who sent it, and Dom from ZG who replied.

    Does anyone know how producers deal with vocals with pitching problems? I legitimately do not know

    @Prism Due to poor configuration of a voicebank some vocaloids tend to sing off-pitch, V2 Lily is probably the most notorious for this :P as far as I know.

    I think you are asking for pitch correction the industry standard is revoice pro and Melodne

    Are you talking about specific notes going out of tune? If the voicebank goes out of tune at the end of a note, you could just put a really short note at the end of the incorrect note and use the - phonetic to extend the vowel sound. If it’s out of tune at the beginning, then make the first note really short and create a separate note with the - phonetic to make the word longer. If neither of those work, you could use PIT + PBS to correct it
    To be honest, I've been waiting for DeepVocal to impress me and as of yet....it hasn't.

    If it helps with the navigation on the wiki you can find several voicebanks listed in the deepvocal vocals section. Truth be told most of the deepvocal vbs I've heard are really nothing to write home about, the selection is kinda meh in general, still waiting for some interesting ones :miku2_move: it's gonna take a while.

    That was what I did, but last time I was there, a whole bunch of them weren't available for download yet, just listed. There wasn't any differentiation, so I got frustrated and gave up.

    Since you can make your own deepvocal vb it's gonna take a while for them to get organized. Probably the best strategy is to go on youtube and type in "deepvocal voicebank" :yohioloid_lili: See what you like.

    Are people here willing to translate lyrics into JP....I don't have anything ready, just curious

    I've never tried translating English lyrics to Japanese before, but I'm interested. I usually translate lyrics (Japanese to English) for a friend but I didn't save all of them but you can check three translations at my journal thread.
