    I've been again motivated to pick up on working on a resource I started in like....september? It's focused on helping people in utilizing V5 properly as well as clearing up misconceptions, boy I've just realized how needed this is.

    @ other V5 junkies you're free to share your tips too :mikoto_lili: asking for a friend

    Yeah you go!!! I'm thinking of getting it myself for christmas unless the off chance of someone actually acknowledging my vocal-synth obsession happens :< so I need all the reasons I can get :prima_ani_lili:
    I knew my dyscalculia would make driving more difficult but I underestimated just how much lol. My instructor has said itd be better if I switched to automatic car and I think thats good idea as well. Dyscalculia is a bitch and affects more than just your ability to count dgfg

    I have dyscalculia as well, but I managed to pass my test in a manual. Still hate messing around with gears though, so once I save up enough money for a newer car in a few years' time, I might get an automatic.

    Dyscalculia can also affect how you perceive space and distance, which means that sometimes, I just sit around on junctions and roundabouts waiting for cars to pass because I can't judge how far away or fast they're going. My mum absolutely hates it sometimes, and it's a bit of a miracle I managed to pass my test on my first try, because you can fail for sitting at a junction for too long in Britain.

    Hhhh Yanhes V5 should be around the corner. Fingers crossed!
    Can you explain your pfp?

    also the way that the hair is shaded is making me slightly uncomfortable because the... body? has so little detail. eep

    Oh, that's her art style? I honestly thought she just drew the hair on something that she found on the internet. I didn't realize it was her own art style. It's the specific way how she added shading to one part of the drawing and not to the other (or at least some sort of color differentiation.) I didn't mean to say that it was bad, tbh I actually really think it's funny and cute, but unfortunately, my wording sucks worse than Crypton Engrish Vocal Banks :( Sorry @patuk

    @peaches2217 @Krin Thank you guys!

    @BlueJ and it's okay, no hard feelings. As for my pfp I made him up in my class with my friends and I eventually turned him into my "mascot" of some kind, this is actually a modified version of him, I just added Teto's drills to him for giggles, this is what he looks like:


    His name is Kubík psík.

    BlueJ
    hehe... kubik psik

    My pfp is a symbol from the Canadian Aboriginal syllabary. ᐕ

    and because nobody is using it... I thought why not just add a body and arms? Tada! \(ᐕ)/ Happy dood! was born (that's what i save pics of this as anyway)
    Hhhh I found producer whose work I love but has very small portfolio and hasn't been active for years but I found another producer with similar style to fill in the gap :mikoto_lili: I especially love this song:

    Among one of the worst voice synth trends ( ie low gen Flower, slapping pitch snap, low gen and bre on a vocal and calling it a day ) is people being obsessed with tuning Kaneka Yarao as super choppy and jumpy mess....like i knooooow he isnt the easiest bank out there but that doesn't mean u gotta butcher his voice :clara_lili:
    Minoka bby ily but I wish you weren't so obviously the vp's guinea pig and would cooperate nicely like the rest of the vbs 😭

    ....does anyone wanna hear me going on a tangent abt my fav vbs? 👉👈 asking for a friend

    AAAAAAAAAAA so!

    Minoka is lovely and I love her so much but she is less consistent compared to the other vbs made by the same person ( for instance shes the only one who has monopitch vbs, the rest are at least tripitch ), I also think she's the vp's...testing vb? Like she's her 1st vb ever too so makes sense ( her 1st vb btw? mmm lovely tone, one of my favs but since she's her 1st vb ever it has it has it's quirks and is the trickiest...still I'd love to do something with it. She was supposed to get redone but that vb ended up being her Innocence append and yeah it makes sense it got repurposed as it has a lot of a sweeter tone ) I've noticed that her party vb mirrors her bother's newest vb he got later for his anniversary as in: they have this sexy sound to them, ideal for jazz and have automatic vocal fry ( also share similar design elements ) and his is noticeably more polished and easier to work with...but hey! It's good she's learning and improving. I usually find myself gravitating towards Toko cuz she sounds a lot like Minoka but has different enunciation and is easier to work with lol ( and I might have something in the works w her wink wonk ). Anyways my fav covers with her aaaare:


    And while she's voice acted vb I feel like that flos cover is pretty accurate to her vp:

    And on that note! If you ever wanna try her out her Liar and Innocence vbs are the best to start out with.
    I can't get over that Kafu cover because it sounds exactly like someone's first attempts at tuning using their friends shitty utau cuz it's not like anyone else would use it and getting carried away with the gender flag to cover up for the utau's faults ( it makes it actually worse )
    I've started being able to tune usts way quicker T_T already tuned good chunks of several usts this week so depending how embarrassed I'll be of the mixing I juuust might stop being scaredy cat and share something for once :clara_lili:






    And guys pls this song is so good pleaseee listen to it
    why did it take me so long to notice that Mawarine Shuu and Ruko's male KIRE vb sound the exact same
    Krin
    Krin
    I KNOW I thought I was the only one who thought this bcos no one said anything???? The only reason I have one of Shuu's vbs is to use his breaths & endbreaths in place of Ruko's (because it really sounds like with some of them their VP is blowing into the mic like tf. Luckily Shuu's VP stood a little farther away when recording lol).

    The endbreaths and breaths fit really well without being able to tell it's a completely different UTAU, but Shuu still sounds a bit different than Ruko so actual phonemes don't mix well sadly. But yeah sometimes I hear a cover on SC and think "Oh it's Ruko!! ... wait no-" and sure enough it's Shuu.

    hhhh as of late I havent really been finding songs I feel like do my fav synth justice 🥺 so I end up finding myself tuning stuff I'm not really inspired by just for the sake of using my fav cuz I like him that much but i just really wanna do something actually good with him 😅

    You can try checking VocaDB for discovering songs!! I either look by genre or by looking at what other songs producers I like have made. I also keep a playlist on NND and SC for the sole reason of adding songs I hear and want to cover sometime (which gets pretty massive tbh but it's my go-to when I need a good song to cover)

    synthv fandom: ugh Eleanor's design doesn't fit her at all.
    synthv fandom collectively @ Saki:
    I knoooooooow its popular opinion that there isnt much more that can be done with Teto in terms of vbs but there are few things I think that could be improved :petit_lili: :

    1. add lower pitch to her core:o there were many times I wouldve been happy with using Teto for the cover but it was just too low for her in spots and she started sounding gross and croaky and it wasnt even that ridiculously low, if she were to be at least able to comfortably hit C3 I think it'd really expand on the genres and songs she can cover.

    2. pls make it so I dont have to dl her whisper CV to make her whisper VCV fully functional vb.

    VOCAL FRY VOCAL FRY actuaaaalllyyyyyyyyy~ due to the nature of vocal fries you should be able to borrow them from different utau. turns out that the person who made that tei cover w vocal fry used renris's!

    Considering her item is French bread, always surprised me she didn't get a French VB though it's a bit far-stretchered and a bit of a chauvinist wish x'D But yeah vocal fries and Chinese Teto could be cool too ! (or eventually English append so when you want to expand her English expression there wouldn't be too much of a pronunciation gap in some spots when using her JP banks.... Though that didn't stop me from doing so ^^"' )
    im just annoyed, i really just wanna follow content of the vp of my favorite utaus and see more of them and her other content but Im seriously getting annoyed with her twitter account shenanigans, she keeps jumping between them and which she decides to be active on, newly I found out shes deleted one of them which shes said shed be posting utau content on and i dont wanna question the validity behind that action but im both worried and annoyed, i didnt think itd come to this but im thinking i should just focus on her utaus and nothing more to save myself a lot of headache and stress
    ofc Im not here to police ppl on how they use their vocaloids but I am little sad when ppl just tune the whole vsq in V4 and then just render it in V5 if they wanna use it with a V5-loid :C max put vocal fry or two on some notes but that's it and don't fiddle with V5/V5-loid exclusive features. i just find it little sad cuz i dont think that's getting the full intended experience with those vbs as they come with features exclusive to them and programmed to react to V5 features better that reeaaaally enhances the experience and I wish people were little more willing to get to explore them as they're lovely vbs :C

    Unfortunately society is full of v5 haters
    patuk
    patuk
    it's sad and I think that's one of the many reasons why V5 loids are unpopular, cuz ppl see V5 as nothing more but expensive vocal fry machine so all they end up doing is rendering V5s last minute and not actually getting to experience tuning them which is...rather impersonal
    Kazumimi
    Kazumimi
    I don’t have V5, but I definitely agree that not working directly with the voicebanks feels kinda impersonal. That’s why I don’t typically ask people to render loids for me, or tune everything with one synth and then switch the VB. I feel like working with the VBs is actually very important.
