    Greetings!

    Welcome! "No Thank You" is an interesting introduction to Vocaloid! This place is great for discussing the latest news. And you can find fans of any vocal synth no matter how new or old; no matter how popular or obscure; no matter how robotic or natural sounding.

    Characterizing Hatsune Miku - (Who is she, really?)

    (This started as a response to another discussion thread by @REDD that I kept expanding until it needed its own write-up.) [via pixiv のくはし] I think part of the difficulty in characterizing Miku is due to her being more of a meta-character instead of a character in the traditional sense. From...

    I was contemplating the songs "Tell Your World," "Greenlights Serenade," "Hand In Hand," "ODDS & ENDS," "Because You're Here," and "39." Then I started messing around in Photoshop, tinkering with a few different ideas and ended up spending the entire evening putting this thing together. Mostly...

    From what I see the numbers are roughly inverted from their userbase. The fewer users a platform has, the more revenue they need to offer to artists to get those artists to take the time and effort to submit music to their platform. YouTube has tons of users, so there's no need for them to...

    People who say things like that are insecure. They try to shame others for not being their idea of what an "adult" is in order to make themselves feel like more of an "adult." I was writing a reply here, but it got so long I made a post about it instead.

    Is Vocaloid For Kids?

    "Is Vocaloid for kids?" A post expressed concern about other people who had made snide remarks about things such as Vocaloid seeming to be for children, and not something adults should be involved with. I wrote a reply that turned into something I felt should be its own post. People who say...

    Hello everyone! ^^

    Welcome I too have been a fan for a long time, but only started getting involved in the fandom in the past year. I also only started playing around with the software a year ago, just to get some insight into how Vocaloid production works. The reason I'm still listening after 14 years is the...

    Becoming an artist by way of being a Vocaloid fan.

    Here's some advice I wish someone had shared with me: If you see art styles you like and maybe want to incorporate elements of it into your own, trace some of their work. Don't post or share it or anything. The point is that tracing a piece of art forces your brain to pay attention to details...

    Figure Preferences: Posable or Non-Posable

    I currently own mostly non-posable figures aside from three Nendoroids (MM 2018 Miku, Halloween Miku, and "if" version Miku). It's inevitable that I'll buy more Nendoroid figures in the future. And lately I've been sorely tempted to get a full set of the Snow Miku Figma figures. My current...

    I thought they nailed it. I'm actually amazed at how good of an adaptation it is. Fun bit of trivia, they're bringing back the cast who voiced the original anime to do the Japanese dub for the live action series.

    My method is to go over everything once very briefly, then go back to the beginning and go through it slowly and thoroughly. I always want to have a full overview of what lies ahead before I'm ready to get into the details. Sometimes on long sections of non-fiction reading (book, article...
