    Is there a way to force V4 and V5 to let me choose my install directory? My new laptop has great specs in everything but its storage so I'd like to just put everything on an external drive.

    It's been a while since I last installed V4, but does it give you the option to do a custom/advanced install? If so, you should be able to choose a directory and I'm fairly sure that should include an external drive!
    Also, iirc, @peaches2217 don't you have your Vocaloids installed to an external drive?

    The voicebanks yes, but the editors both take you straight from agreeing to the TOS to the Install screen, with no option for customization. It's frustrating, although I suppose if my goal was saving space, V4E and V5E being the only things installed on my C drive isn't that bad, and the rest can just go on the external 😕

    ngl if legit banks worked in Pocaloid I'd just pirate V4 and V5, because I hear those ones do let you change directory. But it's not worth it to go learn how Pocaloiding works for literally everything non-V1 that I own, for the sake of two editors

    Id imagine having the editors on external drive would cauze weird activation and installation problems? Peachy stored some stuff on external drive and it cauzed her problems iirc, with how sensitive Vocaloid is about this type of stuff I wouldnt really recommend it.
    This guy again 😒

    Oh that one that's like 27000 yen rn?? Ridiculous. I got my copy for $40 a couple years ago 😤

    I can't help but feel like these people are scummy resellers (I have nothing against resellers, btw, when I say scummy resellers I'm referring to resellers who do scummy things) who simply want to drive up the price because they're greedy. I saw tons of ACT1 listings on Amazon that were incredibly similar; I get they're rare, but charging 500 USD (or 378 USD in Nana's case) is simply absurd especially when the same thing can be found at much better prices.

    Yeah the original listing was for 30-40 USD too afaik ( the og seller thought they were act2 ) but that person snatched them and is now reselling them for this price:/ and that's exactly the type of person Kazumi, you're 100% correct
    Did anybody ever come out of the woodworks and admit to winning that $800 Leon or $700 Lola? Also who won the eBay auction for Tyler's Piko, and for how much? I missed the conclusion to that one lol

    Give him a mohawk.(lolol, but seriously I think he’d look great in other hairstyles)
    Well I figured I couldn't call myself a Leon stan if I didn't at least try for that auction... My bid held still for like 15hr or so, till someone finally outbid me. Lowkey highkey I'm relieved (SO much money) but a part of me is also sad al;sfj

    He would have made a good companion for my Lola 👀👀👀

    It was! We got very lucky :)
    If Leon says [j] as the first sound of a phrase, he always kinda crackles on it?? But if it's following another sound it's fine. Ergo, if you put a 1/64 note with just [h] on it in front of it, he won't make any sound on it, but the [j] sounds normal 👀

    Oh, that's something good to keep in mind! I'll bet there might even be other vocals with similar quirks, too, and that technique might work for them also. :kaito_move:

    I have to admit, the first thing I thought when I started reading your post, though, was, "Why is Leon referring to themself in the third person? Why is Leon sitting around pronouncing Vocaloid phonemes!?"

    "OHH... They meant the Vocaloid Leon. My mistake. Carry on." :ROFL:

    Yeah, I'll have to see if something similar helps anyone else out with problems like that!

    LOL oh no, that's too funny! Haha I actually just chose the username because Leon is my favorite Vocaloid sjflsd
    Well........ I have acquired the physical version of a bank that I previously owned digitally. Shipping hell dictates I won't have it for ages, but ahhh 👀

    Hhhhh my friend won't let me pay her back for ittttt. She initially sent the money to cover it before I was able to check my bank acct, but now when I say I'll send her the money she says she'd sent it right back. A forced gift!! 😱😂 It's very sweet of her jsl;fasdjf

    It's a boxed Lola!! Off of Ebay. I never thought I'd see one! Maybe someday if I keep an eye out, I'll find a boxed Leon too. I won't even hold out hope for the mother load (Miriam LOL).
    Erm... I used my graduation money to buy Saki's physical, despite not owning SV Pro yet 😂

    Oooooo does it still have the ai included or did they stop the promotion. Where did you get her?

    AFAIK the promotion goes on till mid-June, so I should be able to get AI for free! I got her off Amazon JP, so shipping shouldn't be too bad :D

    Yay I'm glad you got her in time especially when her gen 3 ai is coming out.

    I don't think it'd be any odder than companies retiring the V2/3 when the V3/4 comes out, etc! Cause like if the logic is "but the consumer would have to buy a new editor if they retired the other one!" then it was the same idea with new Vocaloid releases. But I hope they don't, either way! More convenient for people that way aha.

    Thank you!
    I graduated college today!! My parents don't want me to move out for a long time, but I want to as soon as I know if my internship will keep me on for a while or not, because I'd like to start HRT sooner than later... 😅

    Does AHS still do that like $800 all-Vocaloids sale in December? B/c after a long while of financial problems stopping me, this year I might actually be able to afford that, and I'd love to. I've been specifically holding off on their V4s just in case so if they don't do that anymore I'll just finally buy Kiyo soon LOL

    @Prism They already do! It was 20,000 yen for the Kotonohas, Saki, and the editor this year. Next time will add Rikka and whoever else comes out this year (Maki, maybe others?)

    I see! That's a lil odd re: not doing the combined boxes, but that's OK! Doesn't bother me any, really. Once it gets closer to time, if I decide I'm going for it, I'll have to see about their international shipping. I've heard that, of the different eastern Vocaloid companies, AHS is one of the easier ones to buy from overseas, so that's nice at least!
    I hope Peaches is doing alright
