  • I messed up and tried opening V2 after installing the Kagamine Appends, forgetting that I was using Tonio as my base V2 and the Appends came after him. Now I have to uninstall and reinstall EVERYONE! Yay!

    I’m not sure how much of this is my computer being a dick again, and how much is just V2 being V2. Either way, wish my sanity luck.

    Mercifully, since the only V2 to come after the Appends was VY2, and I don’t ever plan on trying to nab him, this SHOULD be the last time I have to try and get the editor to cooperate with me! Just... gotta find a work-around for not being able to install the Appends without ACT2 installed... and not being able to install ACT2 unless I install V2 with them... and not being able to install the Append’s V2 over it...

    huh, normally V2s from like 2009 onwards don't have these issues. (ie, installed Miku Append over Al with no issue). sorry bout that :/

    Ah, it’s probably just my computer then. I’ll get it worked out, no worries! Thank you!
    That super-rare Gakupo listing is sitting at ¥23,000 as of now, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it end up at ¥30,000 or so... I’m a little jealous, but it’s still amazing! I didn’t know it even existed until I saw it.

    Last time i saw it listed i'm pretty sure i saw it sell for 8000 yen, so i was considering bidding on it until...
    Yaaaaaaas! Miku V2/Append shipped out to the Buyee warehouse last night (less than 24 hours after purchasing them). As soon as they're there, I'll consolidate them with Luka V2 and get them shipped here, then all that's left is to wait for Meiko V1!

    And then I'm banning myself from buying anything else until Eleanor's full VB is released, unless of course I find another deal too good to pass up, in which case... no promises.

    God, I wish I could leave reviews for the people I order from through Buyee. Prompt shipping deserves all KINDS of good reviews.
    Great news, for a change!

    1.) I’ll be back on my meds in short order! My doctor refused to refill my prescriptions unless I came in and saw her face-to-face, and she wouldn’t work with my work schedule or accept Skype calls; as I’ve only been working for two months, and I already asked for time off for my dad’s birthday, I got too nervous to ask for MORE time off to see the doctor, so I figured I’d just wing it.

    I’ve been off my meds for over a month now and it’s taken its toll mentally, emotionally, AND physically, so I finally said “Fuck it,” scheduled in as fast as they would see me, and figured I’d let my managers deal.

    Got my schedule for next week today, and my appointment falls on my day off! So that’s exciting~

    2.) My next haul of vocalsynth products: Luka V2, Miku V2, Miku Append, and, most excitingly, Meiko V1!! I’m so happy!!
    Ah, it does my heart happy when people go to resell their synths and don’t realize how much they’re actually worth.

    I know that’s... kind of a harsh thing to say, but c’mon, how else would I have snagged Meiko V1? :meiko_ani_lili:
    As soon as I promised myself no more synths, another listing came up - a listing I had no hope of ever finding.

    I had to go through a proxy for this one, so wish me luck! I'm scared it'll be snatched up before they get to it...

    I honestly don't know. I would doubt it, but you never know! I just saw ACT1 and had to report, because... well, ACT1. :yohioloid_lili: Still, even if not, it would make an awesome little souvenir!

    Lmao yeah totally! And besides that, i think act1 is my favorite of the kagamine vbs. I love how bright they sound. If i were more of a len/rin stan i would get them in a heartbeat 😅
    One of my big yet quiet dreams is to own Miku's original English VB. It's not sold on its own anymore, of course, and only comes in bundles. The problem is finding a bundle... most versions you find on Mercari and the likes are either her Japanese banks only, or, one cruel time, her bundle... but the seller said they were keeping her English bank and only selling her Japanese banks.

    Given my next Buyee shipment will be Luka and Miku's OG banks and Miku's Appends, Miku V3/English is now the only Character Vocal Series vocals I don't own. So... I may have to find a way to make this happen.

    I just... don't wanna spend full price... since I’m getting her Appends, I don’t care about her V3 JPN at all.
    Oh! How could I forget? Y’all know how I’ve got Miku’s V2 box, but not her VB?

    Well... I may or may not be getting her VB... and her Appends...

    Hhhhh it shouldn’t tempt me because I already have her and I’m pretty sure you can buy the CDs on iTunes but-

    Well, I haven't been living up to my title of Local Enabler recently, so:

    *cracks knuckles*

    DO IT.
    Y'know, I've been awfully grumpy today. Forgive me. I'd like to change it up a little bit and introduce more positivity!

    I'll start by saying: I've finally found a song for Aiko! It's actually a song I used Miku Chinese in during the two days I had her, and I think Aiko does it a LOT of justice. It's gonna need some heavy editing since the original file is from my early days, but that's a challenge I'm willing to undertake!


    My consensus is: what Aiko lacks in power, she makes up for in clarity. She's not as versatile as the Medium5 girls, but by her own merit, holy shit she's good.
    I love this fandom but it can be so exhausting sometimes, I swear... or maybe it’s just the medication withdrawal and the long hours at work making my skin thinner. Probably a combination of the three. :yohioloid_lili:

    Can we not get any news without half the fandom turning it into a parade of “Vocaloid’s dying! Yamaha sucks!” and jumping aboard the hype train not out of a desire to see new synths thrive, but a desire to see Vocaloid crash and burn? That would be nice, just every now and then.

    I’m taking a nap.

    I was about to write the same thing... orz I was already getting tired from the Synth V 2 news, and now I'm already sick of hearing people belly ache about CeVIO being horrible or Vocaloid dying and yada yada yada... People wanted the vocals updated, but half of them are flipping their lids because it's for CeVIO AI. Ergg. Make up your minds, if everyone accepted Vocaloid is "dead", why be surprised when companies take action by going to a new synth? (Need to go back to my underground bunker...)

    Honestly, it's less that people are hating on CeVIO and more that people just wanted Yukari and Flower on SVS, from what I've seen. It's not that that bothers me (though it IS quite annoying - CeVIO has NEEDED something like this), so much as the fact that people won't stop beating a dead horse in regards to "Hooray! I hate V5, so I'm glad Vocaloid's finally gone!" As I said on another of my posts, it was unfunny at first, and now it's just hurtful.

    I'm with you 100% though. People are being suuuuuuuper demanding about "I WANNA SEE *insert Vocaloid here* IN SYNTHV!" and get upset if a vocal gets a release in anything else it's quite annoying, and this is coming from one of SynthV's most staunch supporters.
    With the announcement of CeVIO AI, I really hope we’ll be getting some new vocals for it alongside Yukari and Flower... I don’t care for Yukari and can’t stand Flower, and as the Color Series probably won’t be ported in, the only vocal I’d consider is ONE, and I’d rather not buy a whole synth just for one vocal, y’know?

    Still, my own feelings for Flower and Yukari aside, it’s exciting to see them on CeVIO! Given their intense popularity, it’ll give the engine some much-needed attention.
    BROKE: Shitting on Vocaloid because companies are moving VBs to other engines and/or supporting said engines out of spite and a desire to see Vocaloid fail

    WOKE: Loving or at least respecting Vocaloid, SynthV, and CeVIO as a whole, for their own merits, and NOT rooting for an entire synth to die just because it hurt your feelings

    Like, I’m excited about SynthV and CeVIO’s growth, but come on, we’re better than this.

    I really don't care for the competitiveness/infighting that occurs among the fans of various synths. Sometimes, it seems like people have a need to claim that their particular synth is "the best," and those that came before or their competitors are all crap. It's just impolite/not very classy. As the owner of a Toyota, you wouldn't go around telling owners of a Nissan that you had the best car, better than the one they chose--it's just pointless and kind of hurtful. Similar kind of thing if you were a really good three-point-shooter in your P.E. class--hopefully, you wouldn't go around telling everyone who would listen about that, right? I like voices on a number of different synths (a ton of Vocaloids from different companies, IA English C, Eleanor Forte, hopefully Miku NT once they finish her) and I'd like to keep enjoying them all without the attitude.

    THIIIIIIIIIS. Like, all the “Vocaloid is CANCELLED! Good fucking riddance, bitch!” comments - they were just unfunny at first, now they’re outright hurtful and exhausting.

    My twitter timeline is flooded with such jokes and Im just like.....bruh....dont you get tired of the same joke over and over again.
    The copy of SVS Basic that came with Haiyi and Cangqiong came to me as a link that then allowed me to download it online, and I've confirmed it can be accessed by anyone with the link... part of me thinks I don't need to dwell on it, since the public release is in ten days. The other part of me wants to go frolicking through the forums, tossing the link to everyone who wants it, like those cheap Valentine's cards we gave out in school as kids.

    I mean, it's gonna be free anyway once it's released, so--
    Ngh... there’s drawbacks to wanting to help people, and I’ve been told as much multiple times. Still, even knowing the risks, that doesn’t make the realization that I’ve been used hurt any less when it happens.

    Ah well. What more can I do than rant to my girlfriend and then drink some Dr. Pepper and be more cautious with that person moving forward? I’ll try not to worry too much about it, but damn, it still sucks.

    Shoutout to Patuk, I’ve been 70% rants and 30% tears the past two days and she’s handled it flawlessly
    Speaking of work! Remember that preorder bonus that came with FoMT? Her name is Ichigo and she’s my moo (er, new) right-hand coworker.
    While preparing for work, I’d like to remind you to be overbearingly kind to your local retail workers, especially if you live in states where mask mandates just went through. Last night was... it was awful. And I don’t anticipate today will be much better.
