  • Apologies for the double-posting but a heads up that since Yuma and Natalie are Japanese and English, which means they'll probably be distributed by AH-Software, which probably means they'll get boxes at some point.
    I haven't updated SynthV to 1.7.1b and I don't know if I'll have enough to get her day 1 but I need to get Natalie at some point holy shit

    Update: I updated last night and YOU CALL THIS BETA? Kevin v102 and Eleanor v103 sound amazing, actually better than they did in 1.6. I admit Maki is a bit more noisy than normal now but now I can have v103 and v104 at once so I still call that a win.

    Now it crashed Studio One for the first time. I'd probably still use it if it were just the crashes, but before crashing the program renders borderline headache-inducing beeps. I call that a lose and they better fix it when 1.7.1 leaves beta.
    My Maki and Kevin boxes came today * w *
    And my Maki box came with a Frimo-chan card 🤣
    On that note, the Maki installer installed v104. It's probably determined by the editor version then.
    Edit: The readme also says that this disc is for 1.0.4. So I suppose they decided to consider that their latest version over 1.0.7.
    Look I may be a SynthV cultist, but I draw the line at shutting up and putting up with Dreamtonics's bullshit. Dear corporate simps, it doesn't matter how good a product or company's track record is, they're only as good as their last update, so we have every right to be mad and complain.

    Like, I'm still fine with using SynthV itself, but I refuse to update it or buy any voices that come after Weina** until they fix this or let us turn off HDVM*** entirely because not everyone wants to do away with tuning.
    *It's different with CeVIO AI because you can adjust those very parameters they tune with AI. You can see how the AI tuned it and adjust accordingly. With the random dynamics, you can only kinda judge by the waveform and in this case it's not helpful (which is strange since I recently realized the waveform is one of the most helpful features in SynthV for me.
    **Speaking of Weina have you heard that sometimes Weina is so NOISY, like noisy like a lite version

    ***One thing I was thinking lately, when they "tested" HDVM in the demo, Kevin, Ryo, and Feng Yi still sounded like themselves. I wasn't a fan of Weina's demos in that (because I find that kind of singing obnoxious), but Kevin, Ryo, and Feng Yi sounded great. It's so weird because they sound instead like 1.6 and their previous voicebank versions. Almost like they used those instead of their actual HDVM updates. Or maybe their HDVM updates were so rushed, they didn't exist yet.
    So we have updates of the AHS SynthVs that give the vocal modes without HDVM and hopefully work this time (I'll find out for myself about Maki English whenever I can pay international shipping (I forgot that I confirmed it on a Saturday))
    Though RIP Anri users, Audiologie has been awfully quiet...
    So now I'm on the part where I wait a day or so or less to pay international shipping
    JUST THE NEXT STEP AND MAKI WILL BE HOOOOME :maki_lili: :tsurumaki_lili:

    And even then, some of this is really conspiracy territory so

    Addition: Now I'm wondering about the Medium5 updates. Since it's just the cross-lingual and nothing else, they'll still be compatible with 1.6 right? Do they need HDVM updates too to be compatible with later versions? Which is also the problem with no complete off switch.

    I second wanting Rosa on Cevio 😭 have been for some time, some voicetypes do so well with Cevio's noise like Sasara or Kizuna that I'm honestly not unhappy with their quality and going by her talk Rosa would too! And as for crosslingual and vocal modes...well the SVS crosslingual is a glorified phoneme swapper if there's no data for the other 2 languages anyways in my experience 😐 and afaik Rosa's vp only speaks japanese..so I don't see it asa loss and no one can convince me that there's a huge crowd of people dying to use her in chinese lol and personally I've never been too hung up on vocal modes, i always thought that like only 2 were ever useful and amounted to anything out of the 4-7 they always got 😭 and Rosa would get the emotion slider which is enough for me.

    anyways rant over tyuio
    Welp, I registered SynthV Pro and Kevin so I have access to 1.6.1 again. Not sure whether I'll use 1.6.1 or 1.5.0, but I prefer having the option.

    Edit: 1.6.1, I want Vocal Modes. I hope Maki v105 will work there too
    I rolled back to SynthV 1.5.0 (it's all I have but I might just keep it there instead of 1.6 because holy shit Kevin and Eleanor sound amazing here) to find that Natsuki Karin lite still works here. Even though she was released after 1.6.0 dropped???

    Edit: I have a theory now that it depends on features. For instance, it would be impossible to use Mo Chen, An Xiao, and Feng Yi in 1.5.0 because they had vocal modes day 1. Karin is usable in 1.5.0 because she only debuted with XLS, no vocal modes.
