  • I chose a middle-of-the-road priced shipping method with good reviews, and used a 20 yuan off coupon, and Moke's shipping from Superbuy came out to a whopping $6.50 -- what in the world were people shipping that racked up to $300??
    Me, waiting impatiently for Taobao to ship Moke to the Superbuy warehouse so I can see how bad shipping will be: *refreshes page for third time in two hours*
    Anyone got any clue how to set up an Alipay account? I don't have a passport or a Chinese address, and even just trying to input a password it keeps giving me an error that it needs to be 6 digits, but what I put in IS 6 digits and matches the other password qualifications too :S

    Are you trying to register a payment for Taobao? To the best of my memory, they won't accept non-Chinese forms of payment.

    I looked up some more info on it to see. See if this helps!

    @peaches2217 Thank you!! Someone on Twitter advised me to use Superbuy's option where someone else buys AND ships the product for you so I'll try that I think :)
    *gasp* I just realized whenever I buy another Vocaloid I won't have room to put them in my signature oh no :000
    YALL someone was selling their Nana V3 on Twitter but I got there too LATE and someone else already bought her. SO CLOSE 😂😭
    So if I ever ordered anything or anyone from Taobao, I would need to use a forwarding service, yes? If the product says no overseas shipping?

    Moke can also be downloaded from the Vocaloid store! Though if you want his physical version, yeah, Superbuy's the way to go.

    @peaches2217 Yeah I prefer physical if at all possible :)

    The fact is, I only spent 50% of my actual Christmas money, have next fall's tuition saved up already, and just got paid today, so I could afford him right now if I wanted to. But I'm trying to resist, at least for a while 😅
    Mm V5 crashed again. Love that.

    @peaches2217 Nope, you can either save it as a VPR or export it as a wav, and that's it. V5 has a lot of potential and its quirks don't make me HATE it, but. Eh. I'll stick to V4 mostly. I always tell people that (barring V3, which I don't own) the editors go V1>V4>V5>>>>>V2 :P

    I can't use V1 for six minutes without it crashing on me, tbh. I hate V2s UI but at least it's stable.

    @DefiantKitsune I'm surprised! V1 is very stable for me, on Win10. As long as you're conscious of the whole "don't hold the mouse down for longer than 3s" bit that's been an issue since... forever almost. I've heard it even did that on like WinXP sadly. In any case, it's not an actual analysis of the editors so much as which ones I prefer. I hold to it that V1's phoneme editing is way more intuitive than V2, and that the Res parameter is super cool for editing accents + the icon palette was a cool idea that is similar to what V5 ended up doing :)
    ALRIGHT. Barring a miraculous Nana V3 appearance, NO MORE Vocaloids for me. I've bought so many in such a short timespan 😅 That being said, please welcome Fukase to my family!

    @peaches2217 Haha thank you! I'm not in a tight spot financially, I just always feel really guilty when I spend on myself ;;v;;
    But considering Miku/Luka/Rin/Len were like $80 altogether used I didn't do too bad lol!
    OK! I bought Oliver and YOHIOloid :D
    I don't get Christmas presents, but money to get whatever I want. Money well spent :>
    Wat: Miku Newtype info coming! +I changed my profile pic after so long!
    Me: finally, some good fucking food
    Miku arrived in the mail early! Thankfully everything is working as advertised, and I've already got her ported on over to V4 :)

    @patuk V2! I found a used copy on Amazon JP, and after I got a few dollars off using the points I had from buying Piko new a while back, she was only $16 with shipping!! The outer box is just a bit dinged up, but the inside is great and the code worked, and I was able to register her to my Crypton account :D

    I'm surprised by how much I like her tbh. I never was a big Miku fan, but there's definitely a charm to hearing her old V2 again. I feel like it's a sound none of her updates have ever quite hit perfectly again

    patuk
    Oh yeah definitely agreed! I'm actually little surprised they didn't do direct update of her V2 while she was still being developed for vocaloid, don't they have something like that planned for ps tho?

    Man people really be out here wildin. You sellin Rin/Len V2 for $30? I just might, B. I just might...
    Oh, why does my Vocaloid Authorizer program list "Tonio(V2)", a trial expiring on August 3, 2999? What in the world? No other V2s show up??
    What ever happened to that old VO backup someone was making? I saw a thread of it on reddit once but the link was broken I think. I'd like to revisit some old stuff :')
    Funny, I always imagined Sonika as Tonio and Prima's daughter, except Tonio and Prima are divorcees and Sonika's an independent wild child

    @peaches2217 ahaha thank you! My hc further states that Toni and Prima are on good (if slightly awkward) terms now, and that Sonika spent most of her childhood with her mother, but Tonio got more involved with her as she got a bit older, and he ended up "signing onto the Vocaloid contract" only because she pestered him into it, after she and Prima joined. It's a silly but fun way to imagine them as "real life" people instead of androids or something :D
