  • Sooo, the SynthV Wiki claims that Chiyu AI and Minus AI (yes, you that read that right, as in these 2 :chiyu_lili::minus_lili: :stardust_minus_lili:) are due out in 2023 but I'm actually convinced it's a mistranslation

    Like, they mean more demonstrations but of their Plus databases, right? Not like, actual AI databases and actual releases of those AI databases

    As confusing as it is, I could believe that they are working on actual AI databases. They seem to have had money problems for a while and officially stated that they don't intend on selling their previously shown Plus voicebanks because they don't fit their quality standard. So investing more time in Plus voicebanks seems.. pointless. Making AI voicebanks of popular voices that they can then sell makes much more sense. 🤷‍♀️ But it definitely feels quite sudden

    Yes they've confirmed to be working on the two, and have hinted that they want to make proper AI vbs a while back.
    Current mood: hoarding more Utaus than I'll ever actually use
    I caved in and pre-ordered Jun 💖
    I was gonna hold off because I'm like "Sabrina no, you can't just be collecting all the SynthV English character vocals!"
    But alas, I have some ideas for covers he would be awesome in and he makes a good vocal foil to Kevin (like Anri to Eleanor). It's also perfectly reasonable to buy a vocal synth because his mascot is sexy 👍
    Almost the end of February, expecting to hear back from Eclipsed Sounds about the physical copies any time from yesterday to the 28th.
    Ninezero singing Queen, there's one to check off my list of rock bands that people oughta cover using him (or me eventually since I'm probably gonna buy him at some point)
    Anyway I'm back, this time I'm not gonna overdo it with the unhealthy obsession part of my vocal synth-ing, just the obsession part!
    Also Deci Mal VCCV English is still gonna be a thing, yesterday I finished recording a new take with better timbre and audio quality (such as using an actual pop filter this time)
    Not me writing an Anri song and actually using her vocal modes
    In this case, I'm finding that Chill actually adds a certain nuance to her voice that makes her suit this song even better than she does by default. So far I'm thinking that while no, her vocal modes don't make her powerful (but she does respond to tension and Charm helps with her tone paired with tension. It's like how with Eleanor you can use her Solid, Powerful, and Bold modes together and that aids her tension where the power actually comes in) and I probably wouldn't recommend using them in pop. However, they're great for tweaking her tone in consistently softer stuff like RnB and lo-fi.

    Speaking of Anri, I thought of something
    Consider Anri's alt outfit and that one of her demos was Fly in the Freedom
    If the second Audiologie vocal turns out to be edgy, we'll have the Shadow to her Rouge and they will be not just besties but Sonic fan besties!!
    I'm hyped for the second Audiologie vocal and I hope to see their name and design soon. I also actually think that that one job listing online was for this vocal meaning we'll have a canonically non-binary SynthV!
    One thing I definitely should make clear because of yesterday is that if Asterian is not your thing, I get that, that's cool with me. What I don't get is this one tweet I found yesterday saying that he was pointless to create at all. Like, so he wasn't designed to sing for instance, Hatsune Miku and Ariana Grande. There's so much more to vocal synths than just Hatsune Miku and Ariana Grande covers, and not everyone who uses vocal synths even makes those. When I think about it, my reaction to the tweet was less about being overly defensive about Asterian and more about interpreting it as a tone-deaf spit in the face to people who don't make trendy stuff.

    there is definitely an extent where i feel like people's criticisms turn into baseless hate that i cant understand.... like not every voice is my type, and maybe i have my opinions about a ton of them. but spiteful/hateful comments that just feel like theyre intended to make the fans feel bad for liking them at all is not the right way to go when its as harmless as a singing synth voice... i find more annoyance in people's lack of awareness in idk, voicing their thoughts in a way that isnt just pure meanness i guess
    I feel like roasting SynthV twitter so here we go: If SynthV ever did a powerful rock male vocal in the vein of Freddie Mercury or Johnny Gioeli, he'd be quickly tossed aside because he couldn't sing Dreamin' Chuchu.

    @lIlI it was intended less as a jab for the people that actually asked for and have supported such vocals and more a jab at people screaming at the tops of their lungs for stuff like this, only to barely acknowledge his existence or be like "Yeah! Cool! I'm not gonna buy him. : ) " It's a minority, that's no question, but there's still people who assist in creating a demand and then don't even contribute once they get what they've asked for, and seeing a niche being fulfilled only for the same people who asked for it to just let it fall away is frustrating, because that just decreases the chances of said voices being heard again in the future. It's hypocritical and sad to those of us who actually intended to buy and use him is all. Worth calling out! :kaito_move:

    @peaches2217 Are you certain they were the same people? I haven't seen anyone that asked for a bass voicetype not be hyped. :sonika_ani_lili: That said, 'deep male voice' can mean a lot of things, so I'd understand if someone was hoping for a baritone or tenor, and Asterian didn't appeal. I don't think people request voices they don't want just to be tricksy (a weird prank to pull, haha), but rather we all tend to use vague, non-specific wording, when our specific tastes are more personal and detailed. I really want a female rock vocal, but I don't like every single female rock singer in the world, so it is possible that one would release that I didn't want.

    @lIlI please don't be taking out your frustration about your favorite vocal/voicetype being unsuccessful on me, fact of the matter is 200 units is extremely low number, that struggling to get sold out is very sad even under the circumstances described, thank you
    This counts as vocal synth news on the grounds of guilt by association:
    If it wasn't said that Eleanor Forte standard would take years to develop, the SynthV Wiki would have already put it in "Awaiting further confirmation". Unfortunately, they (or I guess "we" since I contribute occasionally) can't because unlike with Rosa and Genbu, doing so would only be speculation based on intuition, and not the same kind of evidence as the boxes and now people not receiving their codes anymore.
    But damn, either way Eleanor has been thrown under the bus since her AI came out.
    Huh, I take back any smack I've talked about Cong Zheng, hearing other uses of her she's actually pretty fucking cool!
    Not impressed with Xuan Yu though.
