  • I was saying the other day that Piapro NT sucks but now I'm thinking... does it? I can't say from a user standpoint because I never used it before, but from an observer standpoint, this one video that compared Miku NT to Miku V4x in 2020 and aside from that screwup Consonant Rate parameter, Miku NT isn't entirely inferior to Miku V4x.
    But I'm praying that Luka NT and Meiko NT sound better in their final products because in that song that was dropped a while back, they sounded like botched V3 and V4 ports.
    So several people including myself have been having problems with Project Diva PC, perfect reminder that the Piapro franchise has gone to shit

    I'm not sure why you're blaming Crypton over the state of the PC port, considering Sega has always struggled to get ports right, and they're currently receiving a lot of bile online over the current state of Sonic Origins. (It's not just some of the music from Sonic & Knuckles being removed that people are complaining about now.)

    I know it's a Sega problem, I just mean that the Piapro franchise has subjectively sucked lately

    I saw Blue's comment and it reminded me of something I learned from an acquaintance on Discord who mods the games and has seen the way the files are organized, and hoo boy. It's a mess. Mega39's is just a Switch port of Future Tone PS4, which is a port of the arcade version. It was a while ago, but the screenshot they showed me of the file structure was just folders within folders within folders and everything from the previous port was still there, I think? (Including things that are exclusively Ps4/arcade related.)

    I don't know about the state of Piapro stuff right now as I don't really keep up with vocal synth stuff these days.
    I bring up Twitter but my actual usage of it is just occasional browsing select topics, without an account. That way I have no unsolicited like lists or any sort of bullshit on any timelines (seriously, the like button was always just soft retweet it's stupid). Plus, knowing how it's managed to get worse since I was there, I'm even more glad I deactivated.
    Okay so either the new Piapro Studio update is a bug, or I have a conspiracy that they are trying to separate back from Vocaloid like it was when Kaito V3 came out. Or both.
    Whenever Eleanor gets vocal modes, her belt/strong/solid whatever mode should be called "forte". And likewise if they pull an even softer mode for some reason (like Kaito V3), call that "piano".

    And even make nuances so like, the most powerful should be fortissimo and the whisper rather be like "pianissimo" while soft/sweet and Vivid/tense should be respectfully piano and forte
    I'm convinced that the borderline stigma of CV Utaus is just because of the ones from 2009 that took Momo's oto without fitting it and called it a day.
    The letter series has gone from a letter squad:saki_lili::qingsu_lili::kevin_lili::ryo_lili:to a letter army overnight
    Welp, I swallowed my pride and updated SynthV to 1.6.1 (at least Norton actually allowed this update)

    I know you didn't ask for my opinion, but I'd actually recommend getting rid of Norton, especially if it's causing problems for you in regard to updating software. If you're a Windows user, Windows Defender is already all of the protection you should need, especially if you have a base level of internet saviness. Norton is known to kind of prey on the conception of the public that antivirus is a must for computer users, a paradigm that they themselves created to sell their product.
    Has anyone received their Eleanor Forte AI physical copies? It's past both March and April and I haven't heard of anyone receiving them. *I'm not one of the people who preordered, I'm just curious
    I wonder if there's any restrictions on which voicebanks can use the new English feature. Like, we see Sasara can and I see no reason why it wouldn't work for Yukari, ONE, or the Tohoku Sisters, and then there's the musical isotope series. Kafu is already alpha-locked so I can't be sure.
    Also this means Flower English is finally happening in some capacity, so much for those who complain about English Flower producers XD

    Also note that they specify only Song Voices, but as of right now, the only Talk Voices without Song Voices are Fee and Rosa (and the latter is getting a SynthV anyway)

    The English feature is more of a dictionary than like SV's cross-lingual function, I believe, so there shouldn't really be a reason the other JP voices can't use it! It's basically just making the manual input of JP phonetics you could already do into an easier to use function.
