  • Ya girl got exclusive early access to Yukari's CeVIO AI bank! You'd think this was actually just the result of me and my girlfriend messing with parameters in V5 in an attempt to mimic her CeVIO demo using only her Vocaloid voicebank, but nope, this is totally legit. I wouldn't lie to you.

    New cover going up ASAP! Who better to ring in the New Year with than Miss ABC Cat Village herself~?

    Oh, 2021. You started so strong, and not even a week in there’s a terrorist attack at the US Capitol.

    Wonderful.

    Yeah, like... no one on my feed who argued about “Violence isn’t the answer!” in response to BLM is speaking up about this. One has already said it’s “Sad, but necessary”.

    So to anyone reading this: if you support Trump, you’re not welcome here.

    This is sedition at this point and I hope that they all get tried and jailed for it this is dictatorship 101 legit they were trying to take down the American flag and hang a Trump flag this is ridiculous; Domestic terrorism why won't people call them what they are terrorists not pro-trump groups terrorists; this is one of the darkest days in a long while and I will admit I am rather scared of what is going to happen after this at this point

    What happened today made me feel sick. Not really scared, just sick.

    You know, I wasn't the most civically-active person 4 years ago. But particularly in the past few months, I've gained a fresh admiration for the government the founders of my country made. The founders weren't perfect people, and their motives probably weren't always entirely like was described in our grade school lectures. But they did construct one hell of a system, which has of late respected and supported scrutiny on an unprecedented scale and of dubious necessity, not to mention the attempts to subvert, undermine, and spit on it. And it has done so while still, in fact, keeping law and order, justice, and freedom in very large part intact.

    I've been horribly disappointed by many people over the past year or so. But I've also gained a lot of pride in what the country was designed to be.

    So much is wrong in the world right now. The existence of a vaccine, in and of itself, isn't enough to end the worldwide plague--people still have to have a dedication to keeping each other safe. Racial injustice isn't something we should kick around for awhile and then forget about. Dictators do not run democracies, and attempts knowingly and intentionally to act otherwise, or to abet such actions, are absolutely nothing less than disgusting.

    I believe we will get out of this. But I think it will be a long, hard climb.
    Current plan: finish and post my current cover by Friday evening. I can probably get it done by tomorrow, but I don’t wanna rush and compromise the already shaky quality. Here’s hoping!
    Well the Genbu angst lasted about half an hour. I was struck by inspiration, and after a quick test, I've made up my mind.

    You know who I've already used three in three covers? Genbu.

    You know who I've yet to use for any covers?

    Kiyoteru.
    Every time I get an idea for what to cover with Genbu, I come to find it's already been covered. Paranoid Doll, episode.0, Jougen no Tsuki... I wanted to cover Tsugai Kogarashi with him and Saki, but Genbu Pro's low notes are ridiculously soft, with none of the power his Gen1 bank had.

    Can't I have one original idea that someone else hasn't already realized because I'm slow and lack all talent and creativity? Just one?
    God bless V5 for taking overlapping notes from annoying nuisance to genuinely functional. I could never thank you enough.

    I swear I’m about to write a five page email to Yamaha saying “Look give out a trial and provide an option to buy the editor separately and I swear your sales will increase 100%” because I was The resident XSY nut but I like V5 enough I almost don’t miss it

    I know I’d like a trial for V5, then i could test it with my children Miku and Gumi and see how they sound compared to Piapro bfhkjhabk

    So Kingslayer definitely isn't happening this week. However! I'd love to get my backup cover up this week! It's quite short and I have the whole VPR finished already; the tuning I can finish in a night or two. The mixing will be the hard part. And I think it'd be a great song to ring in the new year with!

    i have to have a box fan on in my room 24/7 because of my tinnitus for the sole purpose of it makes sound (though i suppose a sound machine would do the same thing and also BE LESS DUSTY MY ROOM IS SO DUSTY) so i can kind of understand why this man would need a shitty box fan in the middle of winter.

    however,,,,, office depot is not the first place that pops in my head for "box fan retailers". i think walmart, target, amazon first lmao....

    @peaches2217: Ha ha, well yeah :) .

    I think you might also be able to get a box fan from a big box home improvement store, like a Lowe's or Home Depot.
    peaches2217
    peaches2217
    Right?? Like, even if we do offer them at certain times of the year, it’s a VERY low-demand item, because no one comes to Office Depot to get fans. Of all the things to complain about a fairly specialized store not having, an item that literally every big-box retailer stocks year-round that’s therefore very easy to find...?
    I wonder if commissioning people to recreate rock/metal instrumentals is a thing... because I would pay damn-near whatever I could to be able to cover this song.

    It's got everything that makes me weak: mature feminine vocals, heavy bass, 6/8 time signature - even if it wasn't by the best damn band in all of Japan, I'd love it with all my heart.

    Today wasn't a bad day, but my stress is in overdrive. No particularly rude customers, but dealing with them with the usual smile and pep was a struggle. Now I sit in a ball of anxiety on my bed, contemplating every single thing I've done wrong today and wondering how many more people hate me as a result.

    Maybe downloading some trials will calm me down for a bit.
    Aaaaaaaaaa I’m so excited to get home... I’ve been genuinely and thoroughly enjoying V5, and even if it’s only been a few days, I’ve missed it a lot. I wanna have Kingslayer finished by week’s end!

    Sorry you ran into an issue with it! Fingers crossed it'll behave ^_^ you'll slay that cover!

    I hope so too... glad it worked, but having to transfer everything over again was really annoying. But to heck with it! I’m just happy it’s up and running again.

    Every time I have to reinstall Kaito's V3, a little piece of my soul dies. He easily takes the longest out of all of them. Meiko? Miku? The twins? They're kind to me. Miku/Rin/Len take three minutes each to install, and Meiko, maybe five.

    Kaito? This last go-round, it took thirty-six minutes.

    I love you, but why are you like this.
    peaches2217
    peaches2217
    For reference: you can run multiple installers for V4/5, but only one installer at a time for V2 and V3. So, knowing Kaito takes a while, I installed all of my other V3s first and then got his installer going, then installed my V4s and V5s four at a time, then installed my V2s one at a time.

    By the time I finished installing my V2/4/5s, his installation was still going.
    If you factory-reset your computer without deactivating your voicebanks, will you be able to active them again since they would be on the same computer, or would they be lost in limbo? Because factory-resetting might be the only way to get V5 working again.

    You could make a backup of your hardrive first in case.

    Yeah like they said, deactivating them doesn't use up a code use. You're good to go if you deactivate em all first. Also though if it makes you feel any better, I've reactivated Leon on the same machine after he deactivated himself and it didn't take up a code use 🤔

    I've been on a kick of covering songs I haven't listened to in years. The Eleanor cover I'm working on now was one of my favorite songs when I was like, 11, and I haven't listened to it since about then. But damn she's perfect for it.
    Eleanor's voice is a lot more smooth in Gen1 SynthV, so I figured I'd use her there for this cover.

    I... I have no idea how I managed such a boom of covers in it. Compared to working in Studio, it's so time-consuming and clunky... I suppose it's a lot easier compared to Vocaloid and Piapro and such, but holy crap, I don't think I've fully appreciated the full beauty of Studio until now.

    I can handle a bit of choppiness for ease of use. That can be smoothed out.

    SynthV Studio, I love you so much.
    Well... all of my Vocaloid covers are now postponed until I can figure out what the heck is going on with V5. In the meantime, it's been a while since my last Eleanor cover...
    You ever just cry, because you remember that you were extremely attached to a character from a video game growing up, and then as an adult it was revealed that he's bisexual, just like you, and you feel like he's more important to you now than ever? Like he actually grew up alongside you, and he'll always remain an important part of you?

    Peeeeeeeeeeteeee 😭
