    Yes, thank you for the birthday wish. Have a happy holiday!
    I'm dumb. I seriously thought Vocaloid 5 was the only version that actually had a manual, but then I found out that there was one all along in V4 when I looked in the files (it's Program Files (x86) > VOCALOID4 > Editor > Manual).

    It's even got phoneme tables (I could've saved so much time not looking at Vocaloid Wiki over and over back in the day)... Somehow, I never saw anyone ever bring it up even though we would complain about lack of English support/documentation. I actually imported Japanese guidebooks on how to use Vocaloid Editor/Piapro when I started out!!! And yet a manual was there along...

    Piapro Studio also has a manual if that counts? (Kinda poorly edited, but if nothing else the phoneme table is really useful)

    Ugh, where is that?? (Not that it matters since I have the official guidebook...)

    It was a PDF that came with it. I can't remember exactly where ( i keep it on my desktop at all times lol)
    They never teased a small scale Kaito figure based on the crowdfunding, did they? (Like what they did for Meiko: Vocaloid merchandise news )

    I had a quick scan back through Twitter, but I didn't see anything. A bit at the end of the article from that post seems to indicate that there wouldn't be anything at the moment, but it could be something they're working toward as a future possibility:

    そしてまだ先の先になりますが、MEIKOだけでなくKAITOのフィギュアも作っていただけるよう、各所調整を進めていければと思います(*`エ´*)b

    Strange thing is, I thought I had maybe seen something like that, but I'm not finding it at the moment.
    Please help (and please read the thread for 2 additional posts on the matter)

    Thanks for the info, I'll have to look into the Karent thing. I ended up getting it confirmed by a 2nd Japanese user about there being only 3 ways to get permission for commercial use. But none of them mentioned Karent. I was under the impression that Karent was an invite only type of website, but maybe I'm wrong.

    @uncreepy: Mm, you may be right about Karent being by invitation. I don't know one way or the other, but I believe "On Top" is the only Lupin/nostraightanswer song on Karent, and it's a song contest song, so CFM would have known about it. It was the Expo 2018 contest, so I'm not sure what the contest terms would have been; I would think either CFM stipulated that entries could be marketed on Karent after the contest, or they worked out terms with Lupin later.

    Karent aside, it seems like it must be possible to license with CFM in other ways. Lupin also has an album called SYNTECH+ (Its companion album, SYNTECH-, is a self-cover, which I believe means he sings the songs himself.) that includes two songs featuring Miku ("Someday You'll Notice The Evening Colored Horizon" and "Pacify"). The album is sold on Bandcamp, so there must be some licensing worked out for it also.

    @parallax_fifths: Thank you!
    Dunno a nice way to say this, but I feel discouraged. I have fun making test songs, but then when I get to the part of combining the singing/instruments, everything falls apart because I can't mix.

    I don't know where to start learning, all the vocab is difficult and feels like a maze keeping me trapped in one place. I've been making my own original instrumentals in addition to covers, but without good mixing... everyone hates the results because it sounds like cats yowling in an alley. (Nobody likes how I tune except me, too, so that doesn't help me not feel like the worst's biggest dunce.)

    I feel like I have to keep my music projects secret and stop sharing them because they literally bring people pain (to their ears). And just wait to post them until I learn basic mixing, however many months that'll take... This stinks.

    No one can even help me with advice because mixing doesn't make sense to me. Or the people I try to ask for help don't know how to mix or just plain won't help. It's not like I can pay someone to mix for me for every single little short project, either.

    There was a great tutorial on VO that was probably one of the biggest losses

    As you're slowly learning on how to mix, how about simple mixing meanwhile? Like some EQ on some instruments, Compression (use the options for each instruments), light reverb, and limiter? For VOcals I use all that (I mainly use for Vocals settings for most of them and in Fl Studio I use Norton 8 too lately)

    @parallax_fifths Thanks so much for the link, I appreciate it. I started to watch it today and have been keeping notes on Wordpad. I feel like the video is explaining everything in the most simplest way possible while staying interesting. It's really helping out so far! The visuals to represent sound placement really helps, too.

    @DefiantKitsune Maybe one day someone will write a really great tutorial for VocaVerse that will fill the gap...

    @GreenFantasy64 Thank you for the tips!
    Does anyone have a Mastodon account and want to tell me their username? 👀 Mine is "[email protected]" and I don't want to make a new account in order to join Vocalounge. (I just followed the ambassador account.) This site is confusing to me so far and I hate "toots".
    Some people said they were backing up VocaloidOtaku forum posts, does anyone know if they are posted anywhere?

    It was going to be on VocaFun: https://vocafun.com/. I don't see it there at the moment, but it may show up there eventually. The backup got interrupted when VO shut down a few days before the end of Mar, I think, but the impression I got was what had been copied could potentially be functional. Unfortunately, I forget the username of the person making the backups. But it got mentioned on Discord often enough.
