  • I made an oath to myself if I didn’t finish a cover by yesterday I was going to post the 7 year old cover I did to embarrass myself but since I had a bad health week this week I’m cutting myself an ounce of slack and posting it here instead of a thread so it hopefully will go more unnoticed rofl
    I think Cul is the first Vocaloid I can honestly say I would rather hear go too high than too low

    Also I'm surprised at how I kind of like how she sounds with Mayu better than with Lily???? Using Cul's trial has definitely been an interesting experience at least sflds
    So I discovered I downloaded Cul's trial back in August and forgot all about it until now. Three guesses who I'm tinkering around with right now sjflds (Hey if I like her I might even buy her since the sale goes until early March right)
    This music theory class is making me wish I could find that analysis/essay on Echo I read years ago for some reason... looks like he posted it on VO but I think there's still a chance it's in my files somewhere, and I think I did print off a copy, so I guess I might try to dig for it later
    It is 100% the fault of Kissing Fish/Oster Project that I almost wish I could buy Miku right now

    I've used her trials and don't get along with her well but STILL
    I can't stop replaying OSTER Project's video on augmented chords djskfdkls
    (well there's two out but I mainly like the first one)
    I thought this was Hachi's super rare English vb for a minute but it’s actually her Acute/multiple pitch VCV, nice
    (Stop me from trying to make a Ruby version like someone in the comments suggested fkdmd)

    Legit Ive only ever seen one song with her eng vb. It was taken down pretty soon eh?

    I don’t think it was as much as it was taken down as it seems it never got out of private beta. The only references I’ve found to it are all about beta testing it. Idk if Misha just decided against finishing it or Ruby production started and she just had to give it up before she finished.

    I can't bring myself to focus enough to take new notes so I'm typing up the notes I've taken so far for my music theory MOOC. yey semi-productivity at least XP (I even worked a bit more on that DDR Aqours cover earlier but i'm.. still thinking about giving it up sdjflksdjf)

    I just know it's gonna be SO BAD but I can't yet fully bring myself to give up because A) I want more DDR content in the world even if it means I have to embarrass myself posting crap stuff and B) ... I forgot what B was, something something "I feel like if I give this up I might end up giving up using my synths forever" or something

    I want to get some sort of digital piano/MIDI controller/keyboard but every time I think I've made up my mind I start to have doubts again... /faceplant

    Which pianos are you looking at? Personally, I got an Akai MPK Mini at first, but it quickly became not enough (you can only play 2 octaves at once, so while reading Alfred's Adult Piano book I wasn't even able to play Christmas songs because you need 3 octaves). I got a full size Nektar Implact LX88+ used on Ebay and saved about $100, so if you are not used to asking for gifts, consider getting a used one (a lot of the time there are open box instruments that get sold cheaper).

    I’m leaning toward the Casio Privia PX-160 right now, but I think I was also looking at the Yamaha P45 back in December. (I feel like there was a third but I can’t remember a name at all) I had been considering getting just a midi controller instead (probably from Alesis because they have an 88 key one that’s relatively inexpensive and I was somewhat interested in the bundled software) but the more I think about it the more I feel that deep down it wouldn’t be as satisfying.

    I looked a bit at used ones but I didn’t have much luck with it. Honestly it’s just a hangup of mine that I feel no matter the cost, I usually hesitate to ask for things even if it’s just $20

    Yeah... I get what you're saying about hesitating to "treat yourself" to something you've been eyeing for a long time, I have the same problem. : ( There never really is a time that it feels right to finally buy it, just rip of the band-aid and then enjoy the thing when it arrives.

    I don't want to give up on the idea of making music exactly but I get so easily overwhelmed by everything I don't know and I can never get myself to make any progress, it's so frustrating

    I had/have that issue, I feel like the only way I ever get things done is forcing myself to release stuff even if I'm not 100% happy with it. One of my songs i get more positive feedback on is one i wasn't proud of

    I spent the first 17 minutes of the year tinkering with a potential Vocaloid cover so it's already one of my most productive years haaaaa. Happy new year!
    Just saw a Hello Kitty guitar for sale and for a split second I almost genuinely wanted it
    AHS is going to sell that New Years Bundle with all their banks again... -screaming-

    Too bad I didn't meet my goal of making enough money for it this year a ha... haa... sob (I guess I could TRY to ask for it for Christmas but Idk, I don't even have V5 for Sora yet, and I'm still struggling to use banks I have... oh well, maybe next year, AGAIN, I guess)

    Anything over I believe 5000 yen is free domestic shipping from AHS, though you'd have to consider forwarding services, which would differ depending on which shipping method you go with (and I'm unsure of the weight).
    When I ordered the bundle a few years ago, I just went with AHS' own international shipping, which is a flat $40. Expensive when only buying a few cheap items, but for something like this, it's worth it (it's also EMS shipping, so it only takes a few days to get to you). Going with the forwarding service on that actually may be more expensive.

    (edit: Also, if you're paying $700+ for something, I think an extra $40 doesn't hurt too much orz)

    Wow! I knew about their international shipping fee but I thought they'd charge more for a bundle that big. I’m almost tempted again ahh Thanks Rylitah!

    Ooooh maybe I'll save up for that next year. That seems like a very good deal, if only I had known and squirreled away the cash for it haha
    There are at least three covers I'd like to try to make with CUL but I know I wouldn't be able to finish them in the span of a trial period FFF

    I know for sure one has a premade VSQ already, and there was one I was making a VSQ with Mayu as a substitute (though I don't think I'd even finished the first part yet orz, plus it's on my old computer so I'd probably be better off restarting). The third one probably has a premade VSQ but I don't know for sure. Either way as slow as I tune and as hard as it is for me to get myself to work on things I'd still be lucky to get one done jfkls

    I'm almost tempted to just try to find someone who could render her for me because I'm a little afraid if I use her myself I might want her too much rofl I already have so many banks, and I haven't even bought one from my favorite company yet

    I could help you tune! You'd have to render it yourself, as I don't have CUL and she's not currently a priority for me, but I'd be happy to help in any way I can. Also, keep an eye on Mercari Japan through Buyee! People will sell Vocaloids for really good prices. (No one's got CUL listed right now, but still worth keeping an eye on!)

    Between niki's new song, the new Azalea album, and the chocolate covered strawberries my dad got, I'm not sure what my favorite birthday present is XP
    This cover is so frustrating it's making me think I hate working in Vocaloid but at the same time I still love the song enough that I can't bring myself to give up yet... [silent screaming]

    Engloids are generally pretty hard to use! You can do it tho and as Peaches said take a break if necessary.

    peaches2217
    Yeah, Engloids are hella frustrating and take a looooooot of extra work to make really shine. Take it at an easy pace, if you can. Take as much time as you need.

    Thanks you two! <3 I'll try to be patient with myself (and maybe alternate working on this with working on my much easier to tune JP UTAU cover XP)
