  • EYYO Internet gave me an import code for Ryuuto. Now just to wait and see about Rin and Len. My quest to never have to touch V2 again continues..............

    I hear Len is a little bit glitchy in v4
    So was it generally agreed upon that Gakupo's proper spelling would actually be Gackpo, or did I imagine that entire debate? alsdfjsadfj

    It's officially spelled Camui Gackpo, I believe, but I absolutely refuse to spell it like that.

    I think that was a thing and Gackpo is the official spelling, but I just can't bring myself to spell it like that. It just looks wrong to me, lol. (I always spell it Gackupo.)

    Okay that makes sense. Thanks guys!! Glad to know I wasn't going crazy LOL
    Anyone have any just like general tips for helping tone down on a Vocaloid's nasal-ness? I know I bought Ryuuto fully embracing how shitty he is but I'm thinking I can actually make him sound decent ish if I can just control that a little bit more...

    I'm not sure, but online EQ charts show the "nasal" frequencies as ranging from 1 kHz to 4.5 kHz, which includes the resonant frequencies of the ear. (Literally the "nails on chalkboard" range.) For me the easiest and most transparent way to fix problems in this area is with dynamic EQ. Tokyo Dawn Labs has a free dynamic EQ for download, if you don't already own one:

    I see, thank you!! I'll definitely look into that. I typically use FL for EQ but I'm interested in checking out that one too. Thank you again! I'll see if that helps :D
    Hmmmm Gachapoid arrived well! His box is super cute. Installed him and promptly remembered how much I hate V2. Went to register him and Gumi ENG, realized V2 products aren't able to be registered?? Sent off an email to Internet asking if it was possible to receive a V3/4 import code, providing the serial and product numbers. Is this gonna be Kagamines V2 2: Electric Boogaloo? 😂
    Crypton: lol let's give em 2 months to try to fund the statues ig
    fans: *more than double the value in 3 days*
    Crypton, re-evaluating how much effort they're gonna need to put into KaiMei NT:
    if anyone wants to take a chance on a Rin/Len V2+Append that's not confirmed to work for $23
    Google Translate is p shoddy but it appears to be a "computer will read the disc, but we didn't test activation" situation

    Hjfhjfhjf that's really tempting, but I don't really need them since I already their V4s which is essentially append 2.0. XD

    Aaaaaaaaaah I'd probably never use them but I LOVE their Append boxes. They're literally my favorite version of Rin and Len.

    UPDATE: I placed a bid. For that price how could I not?

    Good luck!!
    When I get paid again I'm gonna buy one of those Kaito amigurumi dolls 😭💖

    I did cave in and buy an acrylic stand of his Miku Music Cafe art, only because that's my favorite art of him to this day and it was only $8 on Mercari--
    (It says not for sale right on it but I don't even care I want it as;lfkasjf)
    I have been an absolute menace on Twitter this weekend. I'm sorry for the Kaito spam, it's over now... 😭😂
    I'M RLLY GLAD I SAVED MY MONEY NOW. FRIEND IN JAPAN FOUND 2 PHYSICAL GACHAPOID V2s AND BOUGHT ONE FOR BOTH OF US
    I'mma pay him back and then some for the help. The physicals in-store were only like $70 :D
    I guess I should try to find a V1 Meiko for less than $200 someday eventually just to polish off the V1 collection >.>
    Lemme know if you see one (and aren't gonna buy it yourself??)

    That's fair!! I stand by V1 being more user friendly than V5 and actually not that hard to use, but I've seen you commenting on how V4 isn't as easy as Synth V etc, so I don't know that you and V1 would click LOL

    Thank you! :)

    EDIT: Doesn't help that Meiko V1 is pretty metallic and a little muffly, you gotta have the patience to make her sound good :S

    From a Yahoo Auctions, same as my V3! (Although V3 was unused, according to its description). I don't remember if I used Buyee or FromJapan though, but same idea.
    How legally dubious would it be to commission someone to make mockup boxarts anyway? Higher quality Gachapoid V3, or merging Azuki and Matcha into one box a la Bruno y Clara, etc. Like since they're taking official art without "permission" technically, and I'm paying them to arrange it differently... but also if it was personal use instead of redistributed... I've always wondered! :0

    That makes sense then! Thanks guys!!

    As long as it's strictly for personal use there shouldn't be a problem (unless some character has a really strict policy with copyright), it might be a slightly gray area though, depends on the copyright applied to the character and/or local copyright laws. Some artists would probably refuse I would imagine. As long as you don't sell it on or otherwise redistribute it, all should be safe. Finnish copyright law would prohibit even posting it online without rightsholder's permission, but this depends again on the policy of the rightsholder (Miku's official art is ok for noncommercial use for example).

    OK I decided I don't need Gachapoid rn bc there's plenty of listings for him on Amazon for like $130 if I want him later. My gift to myself after I got paid, did my taxes, and did my homework/got good grades on quizzes? Found a Gumi ENG V3 starter pack for $125 on Amazon JP. Now I have all the editors :D

    Thank you!! I was shocked it was so cheap, since she's close to $200 on regular Amazon, and it was just the one listing that was that cheap, and being sold by Amazon JP themselves instead of a third party. And she was originally 13600 yen but once I put her in my cart she became 12200 yen + 1000 for shipping, so it was really impossible to say no, really... believe me, it was... 😂
