  • Got some scans of Yanhe and Gumi Power’s boxes earlier, might post them on the “make a box” thread!
    I love BLiNX, but MAN is this game hard to play sometimes

    This is the price i must pay for playing old 2000s xbox games in 2021
    Thinking about making boxes for my download loids, is there an exact box size anybody knows?

    i might need to make some of my own sleeves because I can’t find any online….

    All I gotta do is use a scanner to scan the back of Yanhe and Gumi V4 Power’s boxes so I can use the back as a template guide to make the box-scanless sleeves

    I think one of the good things about most of my vocaloids having scans out there on the internet is that I don’t have to edit/make as many box sleeves
    ok MAYBE i was too harsh on Rikka AI. It's not actually that bad of a bank
    I do get that Vocaloid is just software but it makes me feel weird when i see some....stuff....with the canonically underage characters

    i mean it IS a software but it IS also characters (for most of them).... you and anyone else should be rightfully uncomfortable when people do weird shit with it, namely with underage characters.

    vocaloid should be viewed with two aspects, always-
    1. the program that is the instrument. the synth itself. with or without a character attached, it is an instrument no matter what. not everyone will care to regard the character in the context of it being and instrument, which is generally alright as characters are often optional, and there is a big difference between using the voice with no context to the character it has, and using the character along side content that is innapropriate (like underage ones)...
    2. the character people see- often creating content around their canon (whether it is the design, lore, or other aspects written for them), and often leading to a "fandom" created around them. while the voice does stick with the character, its not about the software when it comes to the character. its all about the character. this "character" aspect is no different than a cartoon or anime character, its just the source of where it comes from.

    its more than "just" a software and thats why its so important to have people point out what is gross or wrong in this fandom/culture...

    no matter how much vocaloid is an instrument, if people are taking that character and putting it into scenarios which are... morally wrong, possibly illegal, etc. it is always right to point out that disgust, mostly with underage characters! people will point it out for animes , mangas, etc, and vocaloid should be seen no differently
    (also this is not a dig at your status i just wanted to ramble my thoughts in relattion to it lol)

    No no you're ok! And these are some good points. I think the point i was trying to say was that despite just being software, and the characters not having much to them and being pretty flexible in terms of storytelling, even just some ships or songs can make me feel uncomfortable (like Luka x Miku. It just...doesn't feel right to me.)

    Like, do what you want with the characters, but i'm going to raise an eyebrow at some stuff (and possibly avoid you)
    trying to cover one of Chiyu's demo songs yet its difficult because it involves growl, and Yanhe is V3, so that means its time to find the workarounds

    no worries! once youre done tuning your vsq send it over too and lemme know what the song is so i can replicate the growl:)
    Why does my favorite vocaloid have to be the one everyone dislikes because of “bad quality”

    oh oh oh, lemme guess. Sonika?
    I personally really like Sonika, I just would never use her myself. With a good amount of effort she can sound really good and the tone of her voice is really pretty. She would probably be everyone's favorite english voicebank if her quality was just a little better 😔

    I personally really like Sonika "she is definitely my 3rd favorite engloid". Yes, she may sometimes sound muffed, but overall her voice is extremely adorable, and I hope to get her some day :sonika_lili:

    Despite her issues, she's fun to play with ^^ And I'll forever love this cutie tone~ (Plus I love how her voice tone is a good balance between sugary sweet cute and a bolder, maturish tone à la Shakira)


    (Also her Frenglish is nice, sure a 'loid will always keep some of their accent, but started to make her cover Moi...Lolita and woaow)
    How do people figure out phoneme editing???

    I know how to edit, but i mean,,,,how do people know how to pick phonemes for english?

    I do reference the phoneme list on vocaloid wiki, but usally its just trial and error.

    Watch some videos about regional accents. You'll learn to recognize what sounds people are actually making when they speak rather than the sounds we think we're making.

    If you're bored try, rite teeng thengz owt foh net tik lee sort tuh laik uh dik chun air ree duz in thehr pro nun see yay shun gide.

    I've often created my own phonetic scripts for fun, so memorizing the Vocaloid phoneme chart wasn't that hard for me.
    What is it with V4 and extending my trials for 50 years? I installed a few trials yesterday, didn't do anything to em, and now their expiration date is 2075????
    Everytime i question the wiki mod’s authority on stuff regarding Vocaloid, I remember that they boast their hatred of Miku and the Kagamines proudly on their profile

    True, like come on I'm not a huge fan of Len and Big Al, this is not a reason I will write a massive essay where I tell you to drop these and worship other banks just because their voices aren't my liking x_x"' (to be honest I4d rather put the energy into worthier things like uplifting people or trying myself to finally get a song done ah)

    Ya'll shouldve seen how she went off at bunch of kids for making harmless trans/pronouns hcs for their fav loids.

    See, I find myself either very strongly agreeing or disagreeing with her points in regards to vocal synths with no inbetween but that was kinda messed up
    PSX
    PSX
    @MillyAqualine exactly. I may not be a fan of certain vocals, but that's no reason to write an entire page about how you should forget about this vocal and pay attention to MY favorite

    @patuk I think I've seen her go off on people after they talked about their flower hcs but I can't imagine how bad it is for other vocaloids
    Trying to organize my google drive so i can store all of my vocaloids/utau/synthv installers and plugins and stuff in there
    Ever since the FEE drama started I can’t stop thinking about how so many Vocaloid designs are slightly questionable and I hate thinking about them

    Even Miku's designs can get questionable once you start analysing them. (Append, anyone?)

    @Blue Of Mind Miku Append is one of the designs I was actually thinking of when I posted this. (I wasn’t really thinking of PD or Magical Mirai outfits since those aren’t part of Vocaloid). That’s always the Miku design that’s consistently made me uncomfortable looking at, knowing she’s supposed to be 16
    Because of FEE, i just remembered some people’s comments on Nana’s Vocawiki page about how she doesn’t look 14

    None of Nana’s designs look 14-15 ndnshdnjsndj (she looks much older)

    I adore Nana, but I always found the cleavage on her bizzare/creepy considering she's meant to be a teen. :sad:

    i always thought she was 20s?!?!?! when i found out she was like 14/15 i was like no way. she gives me college undergraduate vibes, somewhere between like 18-25.
    Someone on FEE’S wiki page said her story isn’t canonical when I explained the big deal with her……who wants to tell them :ring_ani_lili:
