Does anyone know if it's cool to edit yourself on VocaDB, or if that's undesired? I noticed, to my surprise, someone put me on there last year. And I figured I might as well add my later releases and additional official links.
Yes! The Miku version of Hibikase is actually on Spotify! The live version from Magical Mirai 2021 is on there. It's just under GigaReol instead of being tagged with Giga and Reol separately (found it by clicking through Drop Pop Candy on the 2023 album). End of public service announcement.
Tried listening to one of my unreleased songs on my car radio and phone, and had to go back and fix more things. Needed a little low-passing to avoid "boom" on bassy setups...and I spent an hour trying to track down and fix some background crackle/hiss that was driving me nuts. Turns out, the one time I used a drum loop instead of making my own from one-shots, there was some background noise that got brought up from compression. >_< (Ended up throwing a denoising VST on it and calling it a day.) Silly analogue drums and their not being TR-909s...
Haven't dug too far into it, but I've been seeing tweets from NicoNico about chokaigi 2023. Looks like they're planning in person and online streaming vocaloid stuff. There are even live stream reservation pages up if you go through the links in one of the tweets.
My first original is scheduled to go live on YouTube/Spotify/etc on April 24th. It's something I wrote a year and a half ago (literally my first attempt at anything musical), and I've finished two more since then, with a bit more knowledge and experience behind them. It's exciting to get it out there finally.
Interesting. It looks like there is some vocaloid usage in the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 soundtrack. Saw people talking about this Koinu no Carnival track, and I see it in the track listing when I search it. I definitely hear Miku and the Crypton gang.
When I did my recent remix, I spent something like an hour manually marking my arranger track out with chords from an external analysis tool. Now I just upgraded to Studio One Professional (it's 30% off until the end of the month!), which includes the basic version of Melodyne...it can do that automatically with a couple of clicks.
I just hit a 1000 day streak on Duolingo. (日本語, of course.) A ton of that is repetition on earlier lessons to drill hiragana and katakana though. (If I'm tired, I just do an easy one to check it off.) Kanji are still mostly a mystery and I only know some rudimentary grammar. I wish I had more time to dedicate to it; I'd pick up a textbook or something.
