It always makes me happy when people come to me for advice related to vocal synths. It’s nice that people think I’m a good person to ask, because it must mean I really seem to know what I’m doing! That, and I just like sharing my knowledge/giving my input on things!
On an unrelated note, something I realized I really like about Tei and Teto is that they handle dramatic tuning really well--if I wanna go crazy with the pitchbends, I can!! >:) (As soon as I find a song that allows it ahdkhjjkfh)
I really want to know how you people who primarily use Vocaloid tune so well in there. I'd really love to use my beloved vocas more often but it drives me crazy that they tend to sound very flat regardless what I do with them... any seasoned users want to share some wisdom?
On a much better note about moots than the other day, remember that collab I mentioned I was doing with an artist? I sent them a snippet of what I've done of the PV and they liked it a lot! Makes me feel quite good about it since it's actually my first time making a PV!
Miku Expo was a blast!! I wasn't originally planning to attend since I didn't think an online concert would be interesting, but I just so happened to catch it and wow! I'm so glad I did! Weekly Miku concerts when?
Spoiler 'cuz I know not everyone wants to hear about the bs between me and yet another not so great mutual.
Hmm... why do I keep ending up with backstabbing mutuals? Don't get too attached to your "moots" or online friends. You never know who's going to stab in you in the back and insult you to your peers. This time I have some so-called "moot" who's angry that I left their server and didn't want to mod there anymore due to already being busy with other projects and three other servers, plus this forum (I never asked nor applied to be a mod on this moot's server; they just modded me one day, btw). Now they've gone and insulted me and are sending their friends to ask the people I work with WHY I left because they claim I blocked and unfriended them (I have DMs on Discord turned off for most servers because I'm generally uncomfortable with DMs from people outside VVN, and I also never friended them to begin with). Luckily, the people I work with are very credible and responsible people and are working with me to resolve what was really misunderstanding blown out of proportion. The server was overrun with some really gross and creepy people, and I was always the only mod aside from one other who actually tended to the server or did anything; I was sick of it and I wasn't that active anyways so why does it matter if I'm there or not...? Bear in mind, I've been very kind towards this moot; I've rendered Vocaloids for them, I helped them setup and mod their server, etc.. and this is how they treat me when I decided to leave....? I'd already made it very clear to them that I don't like DMs and they already knew I was away for health reasons.
Why do I end up with all the nasties??? Just when I was starting to feel pretty great, too. :(
