Likes Engloids way too much
- Apr 8, 2018
Arsloid is the only vocal really hurt by it- vocals like gumi never got anything out of it, they already had enough variety.I think that was moreso due to some vocaloids being hurt by it like Arsloid and any other vocaloid with a ton of compatible voicebanks. But yeah most people didn't use it too much. :/
Someone tell me the reason behind the multiple Mikus, anyway? They're adorable, but I don't understand them.Sakura Miku is cute but I feel Crypton show her around too much for what essentially is just a regular pink Miku. Not even her outfit is different like Snow Miku :s?
I wish there were Sakura Miku design contests like they do with Snow Miku. It's boring seeing the same Miku recolour every year in both official and fan art, especially when Snow Miku isn't always represented by a blue and white Miku recolour anymore.On the topic of Sakura Miku, you have to understand how important the cherry blossom season is in Japan. Hanami is a really a big festival, so big that, for example, every spring TV channels (and other media) put out daily forecasts on when the cherry blossom starts in each part of the country. The fondness Japan has towards cherry blossom and hanami kinda explains how a cherry-themed design of Miku got so popular and why she's used so much during the season of spring. Sakura Miku started off essentially as a fanmade recolouring of Miku, but gained popularity so much it was picked up for official use too, and made into Nendoroids, figures and other merch. Since her Sakura design is tied to the springtime, it makes sense you see it around a lot now.
This would be amazing! Maybe someone could suggest it to CFM.I wish there were Sakura Miku design contests like they do with Snow Miku.

I'm pretty sure they would still have to start from scratch. Piapro Studio is just an alternate "skin" for the vocaloid editor.This would be amazing! Maybe someone could suggest it to CFM.
Also, don't know if it's an unpopular opinion. I think CFM should ditch the Vocaloid engine and do their own thing.
They already have Piapro Studio, so they don't have to start from scratch and maybe the quality of their voicebanks
could improve. Their voicebanks are popular enough that they don't have to rely on the Vocaloid brand anymore.
Maybe this way, CFM won't feel the need to rush their products...
Well, in all fairness, Anamanaguchi is very well known. The song was commissioned by Crypton, after all. Happens on the JP side too; boring songs by popular producers get more attention than songs like the one in my PFP by relative unknowns.It's technically a well made song, but I just really don't like "Miku" by Anamanaguchi. To me it's like the antithesis of everything I love about the creative side of the fandom. You have some of the coolest and unique soundings songs ever, and the one that gets attention is the most generic "2010's pop" song imaginable?
I always hate that Nostalogic is Yuukiss' most famous Meiko song when songs like Kurenai Beat are RIGHT THEREMy opinion: I like Meiko, but a large fraction of her popular songs are either really boring (Piano x Forte x Scandal, Evil Food Eater Conchita) or completely awful (Nostalgic, Lover's Suicide in Oblivion).
I wish Vocaloid had a function to simply make the VB talk, not sing too. It would make recording a ton of talk samples for certain VBs redundant (let's face it, not all producers use all the separate talk samples, especially if they number in the hundreds. Some producers just don't even bother using them at all), and for the VBs that don't come with them anyway, you could just have them talk if you want to without really tinkering with the program just to get it to sound right.But maybe we will be seeing some larger improvements once V6 arrives since there's now better competition when it comes to voice synths. I also feel that if there's one thing that voice synths should come with, it's a function to make the voice talk (like Voiceroid. Actually, I think Cevio already has this feature which puts it ahead of the game). Although, I'm not sure how difficult or easy this would be for certain languages...
