  • Ah, USPS tracking finally updated and said it's "on its way to the next facility", whatever that means. It was in a city 20min away yesterday at 2am and said it'd be here by 8pm last night, why you gotta taunt me like this ;;v;;

    I'd bet money that means it's on its way to your town! When they say a package will arrive "by 8PM", that's usually short-hand for "the next day", so I wouldn't worry too much. You'll have her in no time!

    Ahh here's hoping! :)
    I really should be finishing this essay before work, but I'm just pausing to listen for the mail truck every 2min alsdfjkasf
    Mmmmm Moke's tone is bothering me a bit so far on this VSQ. I keep trying to make base unedited versions of VSQ's but then get defeated by my urge to make my babies sound better 🤣

    I'm sure you've already tried this, but have you tweaked or messed with his GEN settings? That might help, at least a little! And if you ever wanted, I could make a base VSQ any time you need one.

    @ patuk Actually I'm not too concerned about Moke not being able to pull off a mature sound! And I appreciate your confidence!! + AJKLFASDJF that art had me DEAD. Thank you for your continual masterpieces. I don't know how you crank them out so fast!! That reaction is practically every Vocaloid, until you wrangle them into it 🤣

    @ peaches Oh definitely! From what I can tell, GEN, BRI, some OPE nudges, and PIT will do him well, and then I can mess with the EQ and compression and such to polish it off. I didn't describe it well, but my actual complaint was that he just sort of sounds... a bit metallic on some of the higher middle notes, but the original already starts low enough that I wouldn't be able to knock it down an octave either. But I think I'll be able to make him sound good! It's also possible my ears are just being stupidly sensitive and it's entirely in my own head--

    THAT BEING SAID, I wanna wait and get the base VSQ done before I do a bunch of edits LOL. Thank you for your offer!! This is going pretty well so far, but I'll def come to you if I need help, and commission you or smth!! <3
    AHA FedEx finally gave me rights!!
    Ahem, I mean, Moke arrived! The inside of his box is so nice, they have the side view picture on it :)
    One or the other, please let Moke or Flower show up tomorrow. The suspense is killing me!! 🤣

    Oh I've just been waiting for them to come in the mail. Both have been close enough to arrive any day now for a few days, according to tracking. And yet-- 😭😂

    I was under the (apparently erroneous) assumption that when you opened a VSQ in V1, it automatically changed it to midi. Like how V2 panics and immediately makes VSQx's into VSQ's when you trick it into opening one. It's really weird to be editing in V1 and continually seeing "etc.vsq" on the top as you save. And just for fun, I opened the VSQ in V4 after I'd tinkered with it, and it did indeed save Leon's Noise of like 70 as BRE 70. Dex never sounded so bad in my life I swear-- 😂
    Youtube sure takes a long time to upload/process videos. I got up at 3:30 am to mix the vocals and then make the video for this cover alsdfjsadfj
    If anyone has a physical V4 who would be able/willing to scan it for a brotha tryna make a DVD case for his boxed version, I'd really appreciate it 😂

    3 days after passing a customs check, Moke finally gets handed over to FedEX, but is still in California. I just want my boyyyy

    I wanna make him sing the Princess Agents ending song, 心之焰 (xin1 zhi1 yan4). It's so pretty but also pretty simple :)

    Yes!! Good point! Chin up and all :D
    It always really irked me that Moffat made the Gomez Master go by "Missy" with the logic that she "couldn't go by Master". Like, yeah she could've? Or the Mistress? Why did he have to dumb it down to a regular feminine name? And now people are like "here's a drawing of all the Masters + Missy!" and I know they mean well but it irks me because you could just leave it at "all the Masters". She's just a regeneration of the same person, but because Moffat changed the naming convention needlessly, she sticks out as "that one female Master". I hope that doesn't happen with the current Doctor once Jodie leaves the show.
    I'm a little surprised there's not a "General" forum under the off topic Gen Discussion for you to just post random thoughts and musings that don't necessarily pertain to any topic, nor merit an entire thread.
    Time to take on the dreaded task of attempting to create DVD sized boxart for Leon and Lola. I've got a friend with their boxes willing to take pictures for me to base them on :)

    Does this mean they've already been registered? It's Rin and Len. I already checked, the numbers are correct.

    Yeah mine tells me "Check the product code." But the product code is [30121] CRYPTON, and this blank only allows you to enter 5 characters, so I dunno what else to put. Then again, no other Cryptons have included the brackets, so I'm a little lost. Maybe I should try emailing Crypton if I can't figure it out, cause I sort of thought the product codes were all the same (for the same banks anyway), and it just based your registration off the serials?

    The bottom pop-up says "for the places where the "license ID" and "product code" are written" again machine translator but it seems like you have the numbers written in the wrong section. Also is it..a good idea to share this info??

    Dunno, tbh. But afaik they're right, as the longer one with the ID in front of it is the one I wrote in the ID section on the site, and the one with 5 digits is the one I wrote in the top section, which doesn't allow more than 5 digits (so the other one wouldn't fit there anyway). I've registered both Kaitos, Miku, and Luka this way without issue :S

    Leon likes to randomly deactivate and then to use his code again I have to uninstall him and reinstall. Since I've used his code twice and he's the only V1 that doesn't show up in the Deactivator, so I can't save code uses. Prayer circle for when I move computers someday,,

    It is odd, but ZG don't offer support for the V1s so I didn't bother to email them about it. I'm thinking about it though, to see if they'll sell me another code. When I bought them uhhh a few years back (I forget when, exactly), Leon and Lola were both $69.99. Which.. it's because it was their original price when they were retired. But I think everyone's prices have been dropped, and I wonder if they'd still charge you that if you emailed asking about purchasing them now. Not sure! With all their sales, and the lowered base prices on some of them as the years have passed, it seems like they wouldn't ask $70 for a retired V1, but then again, I guess we can't fault them for asking for the full price of their own product... :c

    EDIT: Okay yes, V1 was retired I think December 2014, and I ended up buying Leon in January 2015, and Lola in uhhh March or May.

    Oh wow. I was thinking they'd be well over $100, since Crypton still charges like $200 for Kaito and Meiko's V1s. I'm definitely considering it now!

    Oh ugh I knowww. I'm so lucky that I got a Kaito V1 auction second-hand but still functional and not already registered, for like $70! I thought about getting Meiko to finish the V1 collection, but I can't find her anywhere for cheaper than $200 and this just might not be it chief 😂

    Anyway, if you ever do buy Leon or Lola, and you need any help with V1 or just tips for their voices, please do let me know!! It's funny that I own close to 40 Vocaloids and still just tend to use Leon almost exclusively--
