  • Now that I've officially gone on leave for work for the next few months (for the fall semester) I have to actually budget myself LOL. I have enough to pay for the next 2 semesters of college but that's not counting holiday expenses, cat supplies, gas, etc. So maybe no more Vocaloids for a while 😔
    Wow DHL does not mess around with their shipping! That was fast. Hello and welcome, Rin/Len Act1! They activated fine, but I can't import them sadly (bc they were already registered to Crypton's site)
    Does anyone have a link to that one post that had all the links to the still-available Vocaloid trials? Got a friend who'd like to try some out :>
    Right, so, I stumbled upon (and bought) a Tone Rion V3 starter pack 👀

    There are some still available on Amazon Japan, or I think on Internet Co's website? This one that I bought is a used one, which some listed for sale on Mercari. There are typically a few around on Mercari or Yahoo Auctions, if you're willing to take the risk to buy a used Vocaloid!

    Does anyone remember that forwarding service that buys from Mercari when Buyee isn't an option? I used it before but totally forget what it was.

    Also are they even running right now, all things considered--

    Might buy a used copy of Project 575 even though I don't have a PS, just bc... old piece of fandom history I guess? And MatchAzuki's first banks, even as unfinished V2s? How neat!
    A friend made this after I told her how much easier I was finding SV to make VSQs in and how receptive the vocals are to tuning and sent her a short clip labeled "Cangqiong pls step on me" asl;dfksjfasjdf I'm--



    Yes I know it's not VSQs in SV but I call all vocal files VSQs fight me
    Oh man I'm really gonna hafta take a crash course on SV phonemes huh. And in particular why typing phonemes in directly gives me only silence even though I'm starting with a period and it registers it as a phoneme by adding the slashes and stuff ;;A;;
    uncreepy
    uncreepy
    All I can think to say right now to recap is:
    Right click note > Convert to phoneme > Type your phonemes BEHIND the period in the converted box > Make sure you're using arpabet and not X-SAMPA > Put spaces between each phoneme

    Alt+V will also bring up the phoneme chart for whichever vocal you’re using! It’s a quick and handy guide.

    So good news! I was being dumb and accidentally deleting the . every time I went to type in the A N :')

    Thank you both for your help ;;A;; <333

    @ Peaches, funny story, I found that when I was clicking through menus randomly trying to find something to tell me if I was using the wrong symbols, since idk arpabet yet but I was *pretty* sure CHN uses XSAMPA and let's just say I was v confused at like 3 am this morning aksldfjsdf
    ...If this email is to be believed, that is one LONG serial code oh my god.

    I have a sniper bid on something I really ought not to, yeet
    Next paycheck, I will be able to put another $1k away for my 5th year of college! That makes $2k for that year, and this coming year (my 4th) is already covered. AND I'll still have a bit left to make bad life choices with ;D

    I s'pose it's worth noting that I got the max academic scholarship you can get at my uni so I only pay ~$3300 out of pocket each undergrad year, and that 5th year will be graduate -- which is about $12k out of pocket, if I don't get more scholarship. So I'm trying to budget to have at least one semester paid off and only have to take out loans for the last semester :>
    Just wanted to say thank you again for introducing me to that patch for V2! It works like a charm!

    It mentions that it's for Miku V2 but can work on Rin as well... does it only work on those two, or is it for all V2s and I just missed it in translations?
    Leon
    Leon
    It's just V2 in general. No one in particular. I think they were stressing the difference between "old" V2 (like Act1 and Prima) which doesn't work on 64 bit systems, and "new" V2 (like Tonio) that does.

    @peaches2217 The import VSQx tool works no matter which Vocaloid I use. The website have multiple plugins, so maybe you’re looking at the wrong plugin…?
    In the box right below the one with the tool you download, there should be one that says importVSQX. :miku_rylitah:

    Edit: I got ninja’d, lol.
