  • So I recently heard a crazy theory that Leon and Lola are voiced by the same person. Anyone know how true this is - if at all?

    hmmm i dont think its true because i remember snippets of interviews from way back when where someone described their voice providers as being "lovely people" or something of the sort.

    Hm I also imagine switching from deep-toned authentic sounding feminine vocal to high-toned authentic sounding masculine vocal would be super difficult.

    The most I've ever heard about their VPs was that they were black Caribbean singers, which obviously would mean that there were two separate people involved.
    Can't sleep and need good, late night shoegaze songs. Anyone have any good shoegaze/dreampop VOCALOID songs?
    Is anyone else feeling burned out with this fandom? I still love VOCALOID and listening to it and I adore my favorites still, so don't mistake me there, I just don't feel like contributing anything to forums... like I have nothing to contribute. I already can't really interact that much with it, since I don't own any VOCALOIDs and don't know how to use UTAU. But now even writing headcannons like usual is... unappealing.

    I do feel like I've fallen out of the actual fandom side of Vocaloid as I've aged. I still take part in discussions regarding Vocaloid and other synths (needless to say, I've been fairly active regarding the drama surrounding Kafu lol), but stuff like shipping, headcanons, fanfics, etc.? Yeah, I've definitely fallen out of that. It's where much of Vocaloid's drama starts (when a producer isn't acting stupid, of course), and as I age, I develop less tolerance for the bullshit that starts in those corners of fandoms.

    I feel this a lot, and it is why I have been even less active then usual, and I am already not very active. It seems like there is always drama or something starting up in this fandom to the point where it feels suffocating almost. Thinking of the fandom makes me somewhat anxious at times, and taints the love I have for vocal synths to where I do not want to tune. I have enough money for some vocaloids, and I do not even want to purchase them because I just do not feel it anymore.
    I think it is like what Blue of Mind said. The older you get, the less tolerance you get for drama. I suppose ignoring the fandom more would help, but it feels hard to do with this fandom in particular, but in others, I do not struggle like this. Maybe it is because I have to interact for news? I am not sure. All I know is that whenever I isolate myself from the fandom for a while, I end up loving synths again.
    (This ended up being more of a rant then a comment. My apologies.)

    As for worrying about having nothing to contribute, do not worry at all. Even if you have no Utaus or Vocaloids, there is still a lot to contribute. Like sharing covers of your favorite vocaloids, or obscure producers, etc. I would not worry about contributing fanfiction or headcanons either. Let those come naturally to you. You can also study how to write characters, or look up writing prompts, to give you ideas for your headcanons.

    I think It's okay to still "be" in the fandom without really having to contribute anything? You don't have to own Vocaloid / use it to be a part of the fandom (imo). I mean, I don't contribute anything except random UTAU covers and UTAU brain rot posts jdskjdjffk. Sometimes I feel out of place on this forum though with UTAU as my main engine because even though it is place for all vocal synths, Vocaloid seems to be the dominant topic. And I hardly touch my V4 editor anymore :s

    I'm really only here to read about what other people have to say about synths and sometimes add my own views. It's basically a very tame and drama-free version of vocatwt lol. I don't have complex headcannons and only have a few for my fav characters. Honestly I'm probably more drawn to the technical / tuning / using the synth side of the fandom if that makes sense.
    Getting into electro swing and steampunk music. Anyone have any VOCALOID music that fits those categories for me to listen to?
    Oh man why do bands always have to change?? Like guys you were so good before and now... please just go back to how you were.
    Remember when I talked about writing that Leon/Lola story five years ago? Yeah I think that idea has died lol.
    Is there anywhere on this website for me to write fanfiction? I used to be on Wattpad and wrote a Lola and Leon story that I liked, but after a few issues, I left Wattpad. Would anyone even read the story if there WAS a place to post it here?
    And if there's not, it's not a big deal honestly. I just think writing a few short stories with my personal pairings could be fun!

    I personally use both AO3 and Fanfiction.net! They're the two biggest and typically most polished websites for fanfics.
    Edit: I totally misread your status! I typically post my works on the websites above and then share links and update for them in the Vocaloid Creative Works section.

    I made a thread for my stuff under Vocaloid Creative Works! You could always write stories in posts and then hide them under a spoiler so people won't have to scroll through it all, and can enjoy it at their own pace!

    (I also encourage you to join Ao3! I've enjoyed my time there greatly.)

    Okay, well, I've joined the waiting list thingy for AO3! I look forward to writing some stories and getting to share them where (hopefully) they'll be appreciated!
    Anyone have any fun talkloids? I've been getting into those recently. They can be so funny.

    These are also funny as heck, too. These fall under the category of "I could watch this 1,000 times and it'd still be funny". Warning for some swearing in the last two!

    Didn't watch all of the the last two because of my poor innocent ears not wanting to hear too much s w e a r I n g, but what. on. earth. is going on with Fukase's voice???? He sounds... grown???

    My mind is blown.

    I can relate to this so much.
    Fukase skips school, IA spills tea and Oliver gets angry

    Hope you're all staying safe and enjoying your quarantine (to the best of your ability, anyway, haha)

    I thought that for anyone that's bored right now, I'd go ahead and share a few artist recommendations. Three for VOCALOID, three non.

    VOCALOID:
    Puffinh (uses lots of the old Zero-G VOCALOIDS, specifically Miriam)
    Hidaomari (really amazing Mew producer with really interesting songs)
    Circus (you probably all know him)

    And as for the non VOCALOID artists...
    Never Get Used To People (really neat indie Russian artist)
    Austin Jones (not the Youtuber, this is someone different; really soothing acoustic artist)
    Tom Petty (I really hope I don't need to introduce this awesome guy)

    Anyway, if you're ever bored, I'm always up for messaging. Stay safe, as always!~

    I know! Their stuff was so good. The cover of Perfect Day with Miriam was what introduced me to her. Really nostalgic.
    Can someone tell me if and what the original is in Miriam's Holy? There's no info on it and if it's a cover, I'd really love to have the original on my Spotify playlist...
    Does anyone else ship Lily and Gakupo? I've found that I really love them together. Are there any good duets with them?

    Was happy to help! And I get you, sometimes I come across professional lookimg pv and mistake it for original as well :gackpo_lili:


    When I was searching I came across some other Gakupo/Lily duets, here ya go op!

    Oh my goodness, thank you both! Honestly didn't expect this to get serious replies. And the songs are amazing (thank you for reminding me of Lilyzm Gold, which is what introduced me to the pair.)

    The realization that most of this fandom is dead just hit me and made me really depressed.

    Oh, I forgot about GHOST. I don't listen to them much, haha.
    Yeah, I see you're right. It just... feels less active or alive than it used to. Maybe I'm just crazy.

    I think it's more like the forums are pretty dead. Discord is sort of dead (it's really quiet unless you try kind of hard to spark conversation, then everyone starts jabbering). Twitter is extremely active, though (I follow Japanese producers, English producers, people in the fandom like artists and fellow forum members).

    It seems like this is an awkward time period for vocal synths. Companies are starting to dip their toes in voice coating, popularity is shifting between engines, Synth V is starting to take off but has more plans. Maybe people are busy making Deep Vocal characters... that kind of thing. Like, Vocaloid kind of killed itself, but there's a lot to do in the vocal synth fandom (like make stuff, enjoy other people's stuff, and go to concert type events).

    It doesn't help that forums themselves, in general, are dead.

    Like, you can go to forums dedicated to far more important fandoms and get radio static.
    Forums gave way to discord, twitter, and other platforms.
