    I checked this because I saw some people online claiming that he was a crypto bro and antivaxxer.
    He likes bitcoin and finance bro stuff on Twitter, but he doesn't promote it to his followers. He also likes a lot of Jurassic World mobage content, so y'know, I'm kind of meh on that. He's not a crypto influencer.
    There's an antivax tweet people said he liked, but I can't find it at all. His tweets seem to be pro-vaccine. He is obviously not a COVID denialist or anything like that.
    I think people might be jumping the gun on this.

    edit: apparently he did like one tweet that can read as anti-vaccine (although it could also come off as anti-big pharma). IDK I was pretty certain everything was being mischaracterized at first, now I'm a bit more uncertain. it's one like out of a lot of opposing actions, I wonder if he'll comment on it and clarify.

    He doesn't openly promote it, but a lot of people understandably have reservations about supporting a product so heavily linked with someone who has opinions like that in the first place.

    I'm honestly mostly annoyed at the people spreading this information but not providing a source, because looking through his likes wasn't what I wanted to spend time doing today orz.

    But for the most part, I think the vocal could be something big or unique for a lot of people, so I'd understand if they didn't want to let this get in the way of that. In the end I'd just like people to be informed about the product they're considering purchasing and being able to make their own decisions with the stuff that's presented.

    @Rylitah Yeah, definitely. Just to clarify from my point of view, I'm not trying to advocate that people still buy the product if this makes them uncomfortable, if that's how it came off, but I felt the need to clarify the situation because so much was unclear, like you said. It's completely understandable on an individual basis. I'd be more comfortable with it personally if the VB had a different name from the VP, but alas. The product is The Guy. So there's not much wiggle room there. I 100% agree with everything you said.

    I can see a scenario where this situation is salvageable for me personally, but given Dreamtonics' track record, it's probably not gonna happen. Blah.
    if I have a spare moment after this quarter, I might try to cover a New Order song with Adachi Rei and my bass. thinking of contributing voice myself too. I think this is a disaster waiting to happen, but it'd probably be really fun.
    this is totally unrelated to voice synth stuff but I just wanted to share because I'm so excited. I made it to the second stage of an interview process for a major space company!! I'd be working on satellites and radio communications technology. Just needed to vent this out somewhere. So happy
    I gotta be honest, I wasn't expecting the Pinocchio-P and DECO*27 collab to be much good... I was kind of expecting DECO*27's super specific style to occupy too much of it, but it's actually a super cool song. I think Pinocchio-P's lyricism is a big component of it, but yeah I think it generally just ended up working out really well.

    Also, on the single release, there's covers of God-ish and Vampire with the opposite producer's tuning. Vampire even has PinocchioP's backing vocals and use of yukkuri vb. Cute.
    The proseka version of Online Game Addicts Sprechchor is absolutely perfect. The covers usually have the feeling of the characters having fun for the sake of it (which is kind of the point) but this combination is perfect, especially the combined chorus parts. Sometimes they crack the code.

    @mobius017 Yes, despite most of the dev work on NT being done alongside ProSeka for these last two years and continually being used in 'commercial' covers we haven't escaped the nasalness. All of the stuff SEGA/Colorful Palette makes for the game uses NT Miku and the unreleased NT cryptonloids.

    It can definitely be an ick and I think they are 100% aware of this which is why we've seen little in terms of new NT discussion on the outside from Crypton recently. But when it works it works well enough!

    I've heard that Miku NT Beta is a port of V2, but the final product is either a rerecord or a port of a newer bank?

    I think I vaguely remember that they might have had to rerecord a few samples, but I don't recall hearing that they ported a later bank. I could easily have missed something or heard incorrectly, though.

    For the first time in ages upon ages, I actually finished something!!
    Happy new year! みんなさん明けおめでとう!

    I composited the image digitally, but the subject is completely traditional art. It's just some colored paper, pencil, and two alcohol markers for the drawing part. To get the 3D effect, I cut up a glue stick to use as standees.

    Then I did some signal processing on the image to create an unsettling overlay and added the text.

    It's gonna be a good year!! I WILL MAKE IT SO!!! :mikoto_lili:
    are the vocaloid fans responding to MIKU EXPO tweets genuinely just very young or is the way people are communicating online genuinely changing
    So... do they actually sound like rock vocals? Not able to listen for quite a while today so wanted to ask. My fingers are crossed??
    ANRI is still not really my personal taste, but I'm excited to see AO's new vocal!
    Today is the last day of niconico's current update designation, (Re). Tomorrow, a new era begins!!

    The names aren't being used to define strict software designations anymore, but are trying to define the "mission statement" or next big social push for the website, as it were. This time, they've flipped the letters to represent the eR in "singer, producer, dancer" and by association creator, animator, etc
    I might make a forum signature. I haven't done that since I was, like, literally 10 years old on the old pokefarm forums (lying about my age of course, sorry admins from back then :( lol. they rightfully gave me trouble about the fakeage on my account) but I feel like it would be a lot of fun. I'm gonna have to dig through the deviantart archives to pin down the style of those old signature designs

    ah yes. oh, you know, I was born in 1922. I'm just a very spry 100 year old, you know? thank you, please let me back into the pokemon (this is NOT a condonement of this behavior btw I know there are pretty young people on these forums I am simply reminiscing on my own tomfoolery)

    I used to have those old school signatures on a SpongeBob forum when I was around 13! Nowadays, they would fit right in with the 'Old Web' aesthetic.
