I know I have messages to reply to, but I've been feeling overwhelmed and anti-social lately due to some irl crud. I keep forcing myself to attempt to be on social media / opening my messages and closing them, but don't have the heart to reply or put effort into writing detailed posts. I just feel like reading conversations lately rather than participating at the moment. Sorry for people I'm troubling by this.
I'm starting to translate the "VOCALOID: AI" article from vocaloid.com (about Yamaha's deep learning engine with Hibari Misora as its newest voicebank). I'm confused and not far in the article. Did Yamaha have an equivalent to the new Piapro Standalone this whole time?
Haven't really been active on here. Got a bass guitar about a week and a half ago (and will be taking both bass and guitar lessons through September).
I've been playing guitar for a year and a month now. It feels like I've been playing bass for a long time, even though I just got it. I really like it a lot. ^^
I have a lot of homework for music now and I'm still trying to find my guitar style (focusing on fingerstyle, trying to get into flamenco, not playing metal like I thought I would when I signed up, though).
Crypton is offering Nectar 3 Elements for free until the 12th, I finished translating the article about it, but I haven't actually gotten to the step of integrating my Sonicwire and Crypton account. So I will be posting instructions and images probably in the next hour.
I found the guy who conceptualized and is in charge of creating all aspects of Crypton's Cherry Pie and Vocal Drive. His name is Ryo, he's been working at Crypton since 2013. I have to translate a couple more things before sharing. A lot of vocal synth techno-babble. Found it because I was wondering if Crypton's quiet because 1) Their software is like CeVIO and too large to be sold to consumers at this point, or 2) The software will be like Voidol but more sensitive (as in, they both have some sort of condensed deep learning data due to the fact that Voidol is a $7.99 app, and they both convert voices in real-time).
Meiko is supposed to help host Miku Symphony in October. So, Crypton HAS to finish her 3D model and let us hear at least one of her Append voices by then. We were supposed to have Append news for Luka's anniversary, which was January; I can't believe they underestimated how long everything would take. When Wat said they were in beta, did he actually mean "perpetual beta"? OTL Are we even getting them this year?! I realized the tweet that showed Kaito's V1 voice being edited was from August 2017, but in November 2018 Wat said they were editing Kaito's V3 into V1 taste, did they have to restart at some point?
I have to look through one more person's tweets (but I can't finish until after work), but today Amano found out Synth V can't use UNI until 2022 (cause of Yamaha's 5 year contract). But now the question is "if we use the voice, but not the UNI character, can we do it?"
I can't finish translating all the Tweets tonight, but Synth V is going to have a Korean interface and they are trying to negotiate to get UNI (Korean Vocaloid) (possibly her Append that never happened) on Synth V.
Currently translating an article about a real-time voice conversion software called Voidol (aimed at VTubers). I'm in shock, it beat Crypton's CHERRY PIE to be released first. And it came out of nowhere. Too bad the Windows version doesn't come out til next month.
This was one of the hardest weeks of my life. On top of sickening non-stop snow and negative degree weather (got a record 54 inches in Feb). My irl friends have been too busy to talk for weeks. I feel like I have no one to vent to and like I'm talking to wall. I wonder if I even have any online friends at all. And the cherry on top of the crud cake is that I just got done falling down half a flight of stairs and skinned my arm. : ( Need a vacation.
Hopefully at Snow Miku, we get news about 1) the next Miku Symphony, 2) Sega updating Future Tone with the 2 Snow Miku modules, 3) Cryptonloid Appends. If no #3, then maybe Wat will save news related to it on Twitter after the event... *tired of waiting*
