  • I was almost tempted to buy a $34 Cul I saw on Mercari but then I remembered shipping costs are a thing

    To this day I'm still yelling "Yamaha give us a V5 trial you cowards" in my head. Who wants to bet when I finally cave and just buy it

    Yeah, I would appreciate if they gave us a trial because I’ve held off for so long knowing that I generally dislike tuning in Vocaloid and don’t want to put that much money into software I may not even like… I don’t feel comfortable putting however much it costs into software that I’ve never even touched myself—too big of a gamble… :kaito_lili:

    I seriously don’t understand why they haven’t released even a basic limited feature trial of V5, like V2 trials. Even with the new discounts and upgrade pricing it’s still a lot if money to plow into software you may or may not like with no easy way to resell.

    Yeah so much money for something you can't test out freaks me out orz. I like to gamble a little but not a couple hundred in one shot. I think another thing for me is that I only really bought Vocaloid at first because I got to use a V3 trial and it makes me sad that it's not an option for newcomers anymore.
    Apparently I have a thing for making up song titles, just not writing the actual songs rofl (I thought of a title for a song for Iroha and I should probably be ashamed because it's a cat pun)
    I love Iroha but gosh the more I try the more I'm convinced I hate tuning in Vocaloid. I don't know whether I should buy her or not /facedesk

    Hmm... which editor are you using? Portamento can be a tricky bitch to work with. A lot of it is just trial and error, then remembering what actions gave you the results you wanted.

    Mhh, Portamento Timing is quite difficult to use tbh😷, though *personally* I find this guide to be really useful in explaining it, hope it can help👍🏻:

    Hhhh I was going to try to post something for Lily's anniversary but at this rate it's gonna be practically a plug'n'play... Though I guess I'm panicking a bit early since it's only two hours into the anniversary Japan time lmao
    Might just say "heck it" and reactivate Vocaloid andmaybe,justmaybetrytomakesomethingforsomeonesanniversary

    Edit: Of course I say this and then get on my laptop which immediately starts making concerning noises sjfldksjfsk
    It's 2:48 AM and I'm pretty sure I'm getting a migraine but dang if I don't want to jump on my computer and spontaneously buy Iroha right now

    (Though is it really spontaneous if I was thinking about doing it since the sale was announced rofl)

    I know, right? 🙈🙈 They’re all so unique, and receiving a new one is a wonderful sensation you can never get enough of lol (Now I feel like I’m tempting you with Kiyoteru ahah😅)
    Also, yeah, that bundle is great if you’re planning on getting them all! The fixed shipping price they offer is quite helpful too for those situations 👌🏻, paying it based on weight would make it skyrocket for sure🙈

    Don't worry abour tempting me, I do it to myself when I scroll through Mercari XD Plus Kiyoteru's my second favorite AHSloid so he was on my list anyway. The bundle is such a good deal but I don't know if I can bring myself to save up and spend that much on Vocaloid in one swoop in reality ssjds

    I can feel you tbh, that’s the exact same reason that refrains me from actually thinking more seriously about getting it 🙈, spending that much all at once is so hard rip 😭

    Someone stop me from buying a $34 V2 Luka on Mercari just because there's a first-time buyer sale

    slkjfsjk I don't even use her V4 I don't know why I want her V2 (I think it's partially just a "HEY cheap old Vocaloid I wanna own a part of Vocaloid history!!!" thing :clara_ani_lili:)

    peaches2217
    Hey, that’s still a good reason! And her V2 is considered vastly superior to her V4, so that could be a good reason too :mirai_ani_lili:

    Idk if I'd agree the idea of either being necessarily superior but- OH NO I just found another one that's ~$16 more and it's unopened AAAAA why did I ever start browsing Mercari

    (Also fun fact as I was typing this my dad, who's checking on our online grocery order, said, "They didn't have peaches" and I almost burst into laughter XP)
    This cover is so cool (though it stresses me out to hear someone say Cangqiong's the hardest to work with... though that's typically the way my tastes lean anyway, idk why I'm surprised lmao)
    Well this cheered me up a little XP imagining Kyounosuke as Tuxedo Mask

    Wow, even the lyrics got tweaked to be traditional-sounding (changed nouns/verbs/pronouns) compared to the original Japanese version.

    Might just go absolutely out of my mind and try to recreate something like this pinyin chart with Chiyu Lite just because (no idea HOW but, hey) (As you can tell I'm having fun experimenting with her bank sljfsd)

    I've been messing with comparing Chiyu to AiKO (except making them sing Japanese). Dang Kanru got me addicted on the first day of trying it out... For the pinyin chart, maybe you could just sort it by having a certain number of pairings per track and have pauses between different sections (like ba/pa/ma/za/sha, etc, then have a gap and start me/de/ze, etc, then a gap blah blah blah).

    Found someone who's selling VY1v3 starter pack with a Miku V3 bundle on Mercari for what they say is about half the list price. I cannot even (only downside is it looks like they're going to take it down if it doesn't sell by the 31st)

    Yeah that solo one was the one I was actually thinking of buying because it’s the Neo version (still contemplating it but idk. I can’t tell if it’s deactivated). When I saw that I immediately checked for VY2V3 and of course he wasn’t there

    I’ve been tempted, but truthfully, I only want Miku V3 English. Knowing how many people want VY1, I’d probably just give her to someone here, as well as Miku V3’s Japanese banks and the V3 Editor, but then that’s $160 I’ve spent on a single mid-quality English bank... grumble grumble...

    If I had like another $200 in my bank account I'd be tempted to get it and be all "MERRY CHRISTMAS IN JULY VOCAVERSE" :teto_lili: (and now I'm imagining Teto in a Santa hat... this has probably been drawn before, 1000 times)
    Hnnn this Iroha cover is frustrating me because I wanna go through with it but I can't stop thinking about how much better it would be if I had her V4 jfslfs

    Her V4 has a trial, if you haven't used it already! Otherwise you can use her another bank and then I can render her V4 for ya!

    I'm pretty sure I have, although at this point I might just try downloading again to make sure sjflksd Thanks for offering a render, I'll keep that in mind~
    I play with Saki's new web demo for maybe two minutes max and I am in love and no longer regret impulse buying investing in the editor the other day (sure I'll have to pay more buying the 3-in-1 instead of the 4-in-1 but I don't mind because Anicute was cool when I had a problem with my order the other day sdjlfsl)

    Running the calculations, it's only about an extra $40, compared to buying the 4-in-1. Buying them between paychecks is probably a better financial move anyway, if I'm being honest, so you're in the clear! You're gonna love Saki's full bank. She's lovely!

    Looking forward to it! (Honestly almost tempted to get her now, but given I feel fairly sure I'd like to get Benbu-- I didn't even mean to write that but i'm leaving it-- at some point, I might as well get Aiko too since she's pretty cute and I'm a voicebank hoarder, I'll just entertain myself with Saki's web version for now and buy them after payday sdlkf)

    And yeah, you've already got a purchase to qualify for the Medium5 discount, and the sales last until mid-September, so (for once) I'm going to encourage you to stay strong and wait it out! They're absolutely worth it.
