    Kafu announced for CeVIO AI (Winter 2020)

    As a VTuber, having a synth that is too similar to the original can cause issues because then you have two virtual representations of the same voice competing in the same landscape compared to what Vocaloid et al. is with a human vs a synth. Kaf vs KAFU will cause more friction between fans...

    Kafu announced for CeVIO AI (Winter 2020)

    I find it concerning they consider Type B a compromise like... doesn't the vocal synth scene have enough of those kind of voices? And I agree, it makes no sense to be making an AI synth and not have it sound like its voice provider, you would think that's the point of the whole thing but...

    Kafu announced for CeVIO AI (Winter 2020)

    Totally forgot how long it took to render that rip. That does sound like no parameters to me as well, kinda like Neutrino I guess? At the bare minimum, they could allow pitch editing. If Microsoft could have done it for their AI cloud singing synth, I'm sure those behind CeVIO could do the same.

    Kafu announced for CeVIO AI (Winter 2020)

    Must say I'm disappointed in that demo, really wasn't expecting that at all but I have a feeling this is not how she sounds in her default state. If that's the case then.... I guess this will be the first white-hairded character I'll be disliking right off the bat. I know it's probably not...

    Hmm, I would hope for a full release in the near future. I doubt it'll be free but a new synth is always welcomed. Perhaps some demos of the yellow female voice? That would be neat.

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    The are saying that it is required to have an license agreement with YAMAHA in order to make use of the API. Support just comes along with it, but to make use of the API legally, you must have a license. They no longer do third-party frontend deals because it's too much work for them to...

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    I know you said you're doing this project by making use of EU laws but I just wanted to post YAMAHA's response to my email on the matter of individual use of the API. Email sent Reply

    In regards to restrictions and protocols of the software this is their response. Tl;dr, we can use it for personal works but not commercial.

    We might be able to register with international numbers in the near future if things go well. 🤞

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    That's true, disassembly is truly the easiest way to reimplement a software's feature without using the software's original code for binary compatibility.

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    As far as I am aware for Micorosft Windows and ReactOS, they are not looking at the source code of Windows but at looking at public documentation and making use of GPL appropriate code (thus making it a GPL licensed program)

    I see, thank you for the clarification. It's still a bit iffy in my head for some of it but it clears up a lot. ^^

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    Thank you for the clarification with the additional article. It does show that the end-user becomes the owner of the software, allowing them to resell if need be but if that's the law, that's the law. I still do not believe that it refers to the usage of a software while it is still installed...

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    I'm not sure where you're cherry picking your evidence from but the ruling of the court concerning that case dealt with the resale of used licenses. Other than the article you sent, I don't see anything in the press release, nor the reference document of the court's judgement stating that...

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    The court case you linked refers to the resale of used copyrighted material, which in the case of this project has no bearing as you are not redistributing the API with your software. The issue with this is if YAMAHA considers the use of the API outside of its allowed parameters (the software...

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    Just to correct you there, emulation of a software is code that is written to have the same functions of the original. You're not emulating any code, you're just writing a program that calls upon the function hooks of another. The use of an API (already written code) is not emulation. The...

    I found a way to make a (legal) custom Vocaloid Editor

    So in a way you're doing what Candecii did but instead of making use of the VSTi that came with V2, you're directly calling the API. I'm not sure about the legality about it since until now, everyone that has used the API in their own implementations for products (Piapro, Unity with VOCALOID...

    Synthesizer V Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I noticed that while glossing and that's probably the best thing I've heard about this entire announcement. SynthV is coming pretty close to feature parity to what V4 was.

    Thank you for the translation! Yeah, I was aware of the hanzi for bing meant ice and it's most likely the reason why it's highlighted the way it is in VoICE, should have mentioned that too lol. And the alpha thing makes sense but honestly at this point, the only thing I can call him is blue...
