  • 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.
    This update has done a number on Kevin even without Instant Mode
    He is brighter and has better timbre now, but his pronunciation is wobbly. The "uw" phoneme sounds like that Moresampler looping sound, and his accent doesn't sound like before, but I can't figure out how to describe how it's changed.
    Also once again, I don't have Instant Mode on, and he's still spontaneously changing volume.

    And that also makes me realize the thing that's always off about SynthV updates to me: they are unreliable. At least I can count on CeVIO AI to not be so drastic all the time.
    I don't see a thread for non-Vocaloid DTM sales so I'll report here instead that the SonicWire summer sale has started too!
    As I said in my unpopular opinions post, I don't have problems with people still using Ritsu, Yohioloid, or the Tohoku sisters, and likewise, I don't have a problem with people continuing to use Lapis or IA either
    Huh, I just realized that now even more so everyone in CeVIO AI is a Cryptobro except Sasara and friends, ROSA (who has NFT vibes tbh), and FEE (could also happen but eh, it's either they don't want to risk their image again or figure "I'm already screwed so I'll do the fuck I want")

    vTuber company, pink girl in school uniform with weird hair, and at this point being a CeVIO is not helping her case

    Well okay there are still some vTubers who don't do NFTs but then again, Virtual Witch Phenomenon and Kizuna Ai

    maybe it's just my bias and I can admit I have one jktyujk and no one can be ruled out 100% but idk I feel like these things are big commonality in today's industry and as I've been follwing ZAN-SHIN I didn't notice any red flags that the other companies did have prior to their involvement with NFTs, generally they seme pretty small-scale and humble.

    but again, bias and u can't just rule anyone out
    So OpenUtau has gained enough traction that USTx is now on UtaFormatix so I finally caved in and downloaded it
    I'm still gonna use Utau instead but keeping OpenUtau around. Can't beat finally having multiple tracks and realtime rendering in Utau.
    Okay so pre-orders are live and definitely gonna pre-order Maki English later
    and screw it, I'll include Kevin in the order because I want that box and having another copy is not a terrible idea

    Update: The proxy I use allows for the user discount too! Sweeeet
    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.
