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.
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.
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...
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.
