i love seeing silhouettes for things bc it always makes me imagine whatll fit the image- i had an idea of what Asterian was gonna look like and i kinda wanna draw it now lol... i love his actual design- mine in my head was a bit more out there/unnatural lol. was more lavender/purple focused, *really* long dreads where the tips were super pale lavender/almost white and were like glowing with stardust. his design still gives off the ethereal vibes i had in mind though and i love it
ooo i was def considering getting asterian's physical bc id love to own a smaller vocsynth physical but hearing a few solaria boxes are left...perhaps i will nab her too if im quick. i have stimulus money i fogot about so i dont feel bad about buying it :P
ive been consumed by sonic frontiers and man what a banger sound track. im not done yet but im really really loving the game sooo much as a long time fan. its so good.... finally some good fucking writing
as much as its automatic to gender the voices off their VA's i actually noticed eclipse sounds' web pages for Solaria and Asterian dont use pronouns for them at all- (fyi this isnt to say theyre the first, i just happened to notice) which i think its nice to see not really from a gender perspective but from like.. a product perspective. they are products/programs first and in the end ppl can use them with whatever gender intention they want. the designs they have for the voices are great for ppl who want to get into the 'character' side of things, while the company speaks of the banks with a neutral sound as to not force it on anyone reading or considering the product.
this is mostly a guess based on what i see but it really seems like a big issue w vbs getting vocal modes that end up sounding very samey/just like default is that they are ones that were made before vocal modes were a thing, and i imagine they just didnt have the kind of data needed to then makes vocal modes that sounded really different. anri feeling like an obvious example- and id have to assume they *could* record more data but... thats time and money, so theyre probably just using what they have. its a pain seeing this happen- on one hand if you already own the voice its not like you paid for these vocal mode updates, but on the other hand it seems like such a waste and to keep pushing it when we get ones thats just feel pointless. if anything i feel like it just paints the tool as bland when ppl get these kinds of examples too- it can be a great tool when its done properly, but when its not its just a bad example, and a way for the companies to pull people back in for more even when More isnt actually good.
i have been wanting to cover sugar guitar by police piccadilly for yearssss and justr never settled on a voice. but mai.... shes perfect for it and i wanted to try her out since shes free so!! im gonna do that
i dont run into too many ACE covers but man i love how it sounds- i just havent had energy to try and learn it w the language barrier and whatnot. but i do look forward to the possibilities of english support..
would be so cool is synth v upon trying to close with out saving would prompt "do you wish to save before closing?" with a yes/no option. instead of "you havent saved! discard project(close without saving) or cancel". like cant we just make this easier instead of having to cancel closing the project and then saving and then closing again lol? its the little things...
im having quite a few issues with rendering on v6 (itll render, but i make a change and it like... just gets stuck rendering half way or not at all) which sucks cuz i am enjoying it in a general sense, i probably would be using it over v5 still bc of the UI and also i dont have v5 installed bc i havent used vocaloid enough for me to want it taking up space on my pc right now. but i may need to reinstall bc i really like v5/6 breathiness, very important for me when i do use flower...
i was going through an archive of an old tumblr blog of mine, it saved every single image i posted and every single image i reblogged. and i found a screenshot of some flower merch i totally forget existed?? im kinda struggling to find more images of this now, not sure if anyone has seen someone who bought them out in the wild... from the layout this listing was on Gynoid's website, and i think the company was beyerdynamic
so a lotta heavily tuned (generally note bended) vsqx files dont really work well with v6 ai banks? i havent seen anyone mention it. but i have thrown them in v6 and they did not play right at all. seems all the preior vocaloids work w them just fine so... im going to assume its something w the ai ones.
i decided id put the..barbie dialogue vocalo change on my wip thread....its just. so funny to me. very clearly, any enunciation is kept clearly- the feminine voices and the way they speak, totally kept! which i think its kinda interesting to realize when you put the effect on vocals... something ti consider when using it
ive done numerous tests w vocalo change, using ai isolateed vocals because to me some are p damn clean, but vocalo change isnt always good with it still. some turned out alright but idk if i wanna post them on yt or anything... might throw them in my WIP cover thread maybe
