  • I don't have a strong enough opinion to post in the thread but the only Kafu related thing I want now is the song one of my most favorite producers apparently made for her orz... it's included in the album she's supposed to come with but there's no sign of a public upload yet grrr

    i've bought entire albums for a single song before but i am not buying kafu just for it

    Surely if they have so many producers on board with this album it'd be kinda contraproductive to put the album behind such paywall such as Kafu's vb? Maybe they'll sell it separately down the line?

    I don't know if I'd buy just the album itself either since I'm still not the biggest fan of Kafu's voice orz but it definitely would be nice if it happened!
    Actually, I really do wonder what's up with Gynoid. I'm sure they didn't have only one employee, but they really didn't appoint someone new to run the twitter accounts after that one person left, huh... it'd be really weird to release Flower for CeVIO and not even tweet about it though orz

    Flower and Yukari got announced together...I know they're not from the same company but they were adverstised as this..vocaloid duo expanding to cevio together...so I assumed theyde be released together?

    Surely they just haven't employed anybody to take cover the account but also this wouldn't be the 1st time a Flower vb project got shelved.
    It kinda bothers me that just because ZAN-SHIN hopes to have Internet as Rosa's distributor, everyone's immediately taking it as confirmation that Internet's already agreed to do this and are officially in the Synth V market...
    Anyone know how many activations CeVIO AI and its products have?

    I looked on the User Guide and I could only find the same exact info that's listed for CS7 that says it's only allowed on 1 computer, but I couldn't figure out how many activations. :{

    My knowledge of CeVIO is a bit old, but it jives with what Kona wrote in her journal; back then, deactivation was handled automatically. What she said seems to imply that when you activate on a new computer, CeVIO gets deactivated on any others.
    Also gotta love CeVIO because you don't have to worry about deactivation, it deactivates automatically once you activate on a new computer and that is just the best thing ever honestly. I love you my sweet CeVIO.
    Same sort of thing in a comment from my journal:
    For example, CeVIO’s authorization is only one activation, but no deactivation required—as soon as you activate on a new computer, it deactivates from the last one. It really is a nice way of doing things and at least makes me secure that I can always have IA English no matter how a computer goes out.
    Unless you mean how many times you can move/activate on a new computer? That I haven't heard....

    Thank you both! It makes sense that they'd be the same, so I'll just say that answers it.
    if anyone ever gets their hands on melodic meru's cool vb i would forever be in your debt

    Ah yeah I found a Japanese tutorial before that basically instructed the same thing. I've tried a bunch of the server names and none of them have worked :ring_ani_lili:
    Best bet probably is to just find someone who has it, which I did once but never got a response orz

    It looks like the download's just... it's either broken or it's been removed. It doesn't make sense that the download PAGE is up, but I've tried Wayback as well as downloading on Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Tor. Unless there's a deep/darknet Utau exchange, I just don't know where else to check. Who did you try contacting? I could try as well.

    Yeah, it's honestly so weird. I think something's just up with the server it was hosted on or something, because it's a 2014 link and should still be in the very real possibility of downloading normally...

    This was the person I contacted before because they're the only Western user who's used this bank that I could find (contacted through tumblr, not Soundcloud). It was a few years ago so it's possible they don't even have him anymore, but at this point it's kinda... the only option.

    Ah, before I forget, thank you so much for trying anyway! Me posting the status was just a shot in the dark but for some reason I got motivated all over again to try downloading this bank tonight and getting the predictable result lol

    western vocal synth community once again complains about a vocal synth they weren't going to buy in the first place

    I feel like IA's talk came to attention more than before but the small reaction it's gotten in the past from the western fandom has always been negative.

    I think this is less about IA's talk and whether people wanna buy it or not but more about the general direction 1st place has taken in the past several years which western fans have shown dissapoitnment in ( at least from my experience everything 1st place has done since IA's rock vb has gotten mixed or lukewarm reception in this community ) and....IA's talk kinda embodies it lol, I just think there's bigger picture to it's all but it's totally valid to feel upset that the one time there's big reaction to something you're passionate about...it's negative.

    Yeah, you're definitely right! I just saw the immediate reactions and went like bruh... but I know actual IA fans must be feeling pretty burnt out by the direction 1st Place has taken her; I'd be upset too. :ring_ani_lili: There's been a lot of strange decisions by vocal synth companies in the past few years for sure.

    I don't even hate the clips, I was just surprised that it was so cutesy since I'd never heard the original Talk bank. Interesting choice for sure,, 😂
    Was ready to buy AI VOICE for the Kotonohas and Yuzuru, but now that they're up for preorder, I'm... having second thoughts orz. Going by their site demos, they don't sound too much different or better than their Voiceroid versions which I already own, but buying them now would be $200 vs if I change my mind and want them later, they'll be over $300.... I think the smart move here would be to save my money for Maki's release later this year, and just hope I don't change my mind and suddenly start desperately wanting AI VOICE orz

    It feels like they might just be... ports of their voiceroids for the most part? apparently yuzuru still has an issue from his voiceroid version regarding his anger parameter. his dark voicebank sounds amazing however
    Rylitah
    Rylitah
    Yeah, I'm just not sure if it's worth paying $200 for them both when I already own their Voiceroids orz. The new banks are nice, but they have less features than the normal ones so it's just.... ehhh. Problem is if I wait and want them later they'll be much more expensive, but if I can't justify them now I think I'll have even less justification for them later... so I feel like I'm better off waiting for Maki who'll be expensive no matter what ;;

    Yeah if I was in your situation I would be saving for Maki LOL... like I'm tempted to get Yuzuru because I don't have his VOICEROID and it's relatively cheap as a preorder, but also I want Rikka's SynthV more...
    Galaco physical auction went up to $200... ehh as much as I want her box, I don't want it enough to pay $100+ more than it'd cost to just buy her digitally kjndskfjnds

    She ended up going for over $400, so I'm glad I didn't try to go for her after all fskjnfdksjfn

    This is why I try to catch 'loids on digital even though it's riskier because it's cheaper and there are less chances all DLs get sold out
    Rylitah
    Rylitah
    Yeah, I get the appeal completely! For me I just like having the physical box, and honestly Galaco for me is more of a "just to have her" thing since she comes with Talk and that's really all I'm interested in. I have every single Voiceroid (+Meika Talk) physically, so to me it'd feel weird if I had Galaco and she was the only one I didn't have a box for orz. But I don't need her so badly that I'm willing to drop $400 on her ;;
    AHS' international shipping went up to $105... nooooo thank you

    Heard about it on the Discord just now - apparently, the shipping hike might have something to do with Japanese postal services still not doing international shipping because of Covid?

    I've heard you can still buy AHS products on Amazon JP, but you won't get any of the bonuses that are usually offered to customers who buy directly from AHS's site.
    Rylitah

    Yeah, there's a notice on the page saying it's due to COVID (although... they waited kind of a long time for this, aha) and it's only temporary.

    I'm just glad I was able to get an order in for the plushies before the price hike ;; Even the usual shipping price is too expensive for me, so I only do it for group orders. Otherwise I just use forwarding services or buy from Amazon JP.
    Seika's crowdfunding campaign's been live for a couple of days now and there's only 13 backers... it's 16% funded and the goal isn't that high compared to other crowdfund synth projects, but it's kinda worrying. I feel like she barely got any attention too, and with all the new announcements that just happened she's just gonna get buried even more orz
    Rylitah
    Rylitah
    I'm sure she'll reach her goal by the end, but seeing this is kinda sad (Tsuina's campaign hit its goal in less than 24 hours). Seika deserves better than that
    Rylitah
    Rylitah
    Part of it's probably because it wasn't really... advertised by AHS? Like yeah they did retweet her tweets about it, but Tsuina talked her campaign up for a few months before it finally launched, and Seika just kind of did it out of nowhere. Tsuina also got a whole livestream dedicated to her campaign, but Seika won't get that opportunity (today's stream is about Maki, Rikka, and Recotte Studio -- there may be a mention of Seika somewhere in there but it won't be focused on her at all, so I'm not sure if it'll help); next livestream will be in January probably and Seika's campaign will almost be over at that point

    It's just.... aah.
    xuu
    xuu
    It's really sad to see... I guess another problem is the rewards are kinda... terrible? Like if you don't live in Seika itself the tax deductible doesn't mean anything, and to get any sort of return you have to pledge 35,000JPY (~$340), which is just a clear file set and acrylic panel. To actually get her SynthV VB out of it you'd have to donate 55,000JPY (~$530), so I guess it makes sense why nobody is pledging.
