  • I don’t understand why people act like UTAU is bad engine?? Sure, it’s dated and the learning curve might be a bit high if you’re coming from Vocaloid, but by no means is it a bad engine. I feel like UTAU is one of the programs that faces the stigma of “free stuff can’t be good”. Plus UTAU’s engine gives some voices their own charm that can’t be replicated on another engine (i.e. Teto).
    Though, I’d be curious to see what some popular UTAU would sound like in different engines (like I feel like Tei could potentially sound pretty good in the Vocaloid5 engine, or maybe even NT once they get the froggy engine noise worked out).
    I always forget that just because I get a good deal on an item from Japan does NOT mean I won’t get screwed over with international shipping. Akfjdkdhdkd maybe I’ll give it a couple days and see if Buyee releases a coupon… otherwise I guess I’ll just have to pay for the pricy shipping, haha.
    Yes, hello, I love Haruno Sora, the Meikas, and V5 now. Have a nice evening.
    Yamaha, plz teach me how to EQ and compress like your V5 presets. (I thought my EQ and compression was pretty good, but damn, the presets in v5 really show me that I'm not at my full potential yet.)

    Since you have it running on trial remember you can try out the Meikas now c; Sora too! You can try wehther the wayback machine method still works and if not I can send their trial over to u!

    Hey, it's a fantastic way of getting more experience with it! Remember, you can edit all of the presets however you'd like, and that'll give you a chance to mess around with the EQ and compression and see how it all works the way it does.

    @patuk oooh!! I’d forgotten they had trials! I’ll have to see if I can find them in the wayback machine~! I’d love to have some fun with the Meikas’ trials!
    @peaches2217 You’re right!! I’ll have to take a look at how they do it! I learned tuning by looking at how other people did it, so V5’s presets will be a great thing to study for EQ and compression!

    Hate to double post, but this really isn’t related to my last status—I’ve been thinking of doing a cover of Churururira rattatta but can’t decide between Gumi or Mayu for the vocals. I adore tuning Gumi but I’ve yet to really use her since getting her, but I think Mayu would fit the song well since she has a similar tone to Yukari (only caveat is that I have a hard time tuning her…). What do you all think?
    So~ some other updates on what’s up in Kazumi-land: I’ve been giving 3D modeling a go and even made a decent looking skirt! I’m gonna keep practicing so I can start making model parts entirely by myself!
    I’m gonna try to make a YYB style Tei using only parts that I’ve made (barring the base, ofc)!
    I really wish I had the motivation like I used to work on my fanfics, but nowadays I just get bad writer’s block or just straight up don’t feel like it, haha.
    That being said, after I finish the second fic in the series I’ve been writing, I think I’ll be going for a third longfic (or whatever length it ends up being) and then turn the series into a collection of more simple, slice of life shenanigans.

    That being said, though I love writing my TeiLen fanfics, I really want to write some more TeiTo ones! The cute one I uploaded a while back has been getting some attention lately on Ao3 and people seem to really like the ship, but I just don’t know what to do with those two… :luka_move:

    If you ever need any help bouncing off ideas, feel free to hit me up! I’m slowly but surely overcoming a massive writer’s block myself.

    Will do!! Thanks for that, Peaches!! :D
    I just realized I’ve had Rin/Len’s ACT1 for nearly a whole year now and still have yet to actually finish something with them, akfjdkdhdkd. Although I don’t finish stuff with them, I do enjoy plug and playing them with covers I’ve already completed just to see how they sound, haha.
    Out of curiosity, does Vocaloid 5 work like Vocaloid vbs where as long as you have the installer you can use it around 14 days without activating? I want to play around with it a bit, but there’s no trial…
    Also does Piapro NT work anything like that? Because even though it doesn’t really appeal to me in its current state, I really want to mess around with it a bit akfjdkdhdkd.
    peaches2217

    To the best of my knowledge it does! It did that for me before I got my activation codes back. Gimme a sec
    So… I really think NT has a lot of potential, but currently the engine noise is too CeVio-ish for me (so grating and prominent it kinda kills the vocals for me)… that being said, I’m sure Crypton will fix it in due time, and when they do, I’ll be excited to throw my money at CFM once again, haha. (Though I’ll probably wait until they release Rin/Len NT or Luka NT since I don’t enjoy working with Miku that much, haha!)
    I realize I haven’t been super active lately and I’d love to become more active again, but I haven’t really had much to share lately, haha

    Aw, you’re so sweet! I’ve missed being here!!
    Oh, and as fun as a collab sounds, I don’t think I’m ready for another one quite yet (I have some other things going on rn and wouldn’t want to offer to work on a collab if I can’t give my full attention, haha)—but do reach out to me about it again in a couple months! I should have some time then~

    Oh my goshhh it's insane, earlier this week I was just thinking if you'd ever come back to VVN!?! Good to see you didn't forget about us because we certainly didn't forget about you :kokone_lili::kokone_lili: and yeah I haven't been super active vocal-synth wise either because of school / life etc so don't even feel bad!!
    Do you ever get to that point of tuning where you’ve made a bunch of progress and are all most done but then you get hit with the feeling of “I don’t feel like tuning this anymore, lol”? That’s currently me with the cover I’ve been working on.
    At least I’m not trying to speed run this one like I did Ai no Uta—attempting to speed run tuning was a mistake ‘cuz I was so exhausted by time I was done, lol.

    All the time I just throw them in my vsqx/vpr graveyard folder and say ill fix it later and then I never do :x

    this is definitely the reason why i have so many unreleased covers lol. i feel settled, but not enough to want to release it...but i dont have the energy to figure out what its 'missing'
    KizelFox

    Yeah, I feel like whenever I start tuning, I've got to get it done within a short time or else I'll lose motivation and/or my tuning style might change. It's happened before, I lost motivation for this one cover that actually had a deadline (it was for a community event), and when I opened it back up after a while, I decided I didn't like my previous work with tuning and basically had to start afresh. Was not a fun time at all. Trying to avoid making the same mistake again with my current cover :kyo_ani_lili:
    Wishing you all the best with your cover! I'm sure it'll be fantastic when it's done :happy:
    At some point, I wanna try making boxes for some of my favorite UTAU~ I think Gekiyaku would probably look cool on a box. (But we all know which UTAU would be up first~)
    Krin
    Krin
    i've always thought about doing that too!!! are you gonna use the official art for the box or drawing of you're own? for me i think drawing merry or ruko for the box would be fun but then agaaain if i use the original art it'd look more real and """official"""
    Kazumimi
    Kazumimi
    Ooooh! I didn’t even think of drawing my own art for them—I was probably just gonna use their official art, but now I’m tempted to make my own!

    ugh yeah i still cant decide between the two!! though maybe i'll just go with the official because it would be easier than trying to capture the sheer grace of kohaku merry with my sub-par drawing

    and i think i have some spare cardboard boxes laying around and so maybe i can cut those up to about the size of vocaloid boxes 🤩
    There’s a particular cover artist (who I’ll leave unnamed out of respect, lol), who seems to have really cleaned up their act lately. They haven’t really said or done anything super objectionable to my knowledge, so I assume they’ve improved themselves. Good for them!!
    I’m really happy that people are finding my Discord server to be a nice community. I’m glad to have created a place where people can feel relaxed and comfortable. <3

    How to change Kazumi’s opinion on a song in one simple step: slap TeiTo on it. Boom. Kazumi loves it now.

    It’s funny, ‘cuz TeiLen is actually my favorite ship, but slap my favorite girlies onto a song and I’ll turn into a crazed fangirl, haha.
