Otakune Weeaboo is 10 years old today. His reclist was finished around 12:30am on 7/27/2010 and his art was finished at 2:59am later that morning. His OTO would take a bit to finish (August 12) but he was recorded 10 years to this day.

Two Vocal Synth Panel Concepts I am thinking of pitching to Anime Los Angeles 2021

Working on my UTAU's website ever since I let weeaboo.co.uk expire. Looking for another approach this time and need some inspiration. Link me your UTAU's website or UTAU websites you like.

I am hoping to record an basic CV UTAU using 4 mics, by recording the same delivery to 4 channels, I am hoping to recycle the OTO, and be able to do direct comparisons between all the mics I own in-engine with UTAU, before deciding which one I want to use to make my "real" reclist with.

I aborted my hardware test fit 3/4ths through. The little spacer bar was sagging and the entire mic stand was line the leaning tower with all the front loaded weight. The channel snake was a good idea however, it made cable management a lot easier and color coded everything on both ends.

What better way to cap off an awesome decade than a medley of your favorite songs sung with friends?!

I wonder how many people remember Ruby literally launched with a Red Curtain superimposed with "Presenting Ruby" and no official character art.

Speaking of old jokes that make me cringe/laugh in 2020. Ruby's Boxart, in order to avoid controversy, is canonically a red curtain, according to Engloids.Info lore.

I was fixing stuff on Engloids.Info and I just LOLed at 2016 me's joke. Anything featuring Miku Hatsune English is tagged with . It pokes fun at how we used to tag anything not from Japan as "overseas".
IE: UtaForum's original name was "Overseas UTAU Forum".
So whenever Engloids.Info sources something from Japan, the inverse is true, and Japanese stuff is "overseas" in an Engloid context.

has a lot of failures to answer for in Vocaloid 5, mainly in marketing, 3rd party support, lack of diversity in voicebanks, and their basic abandoning of the platform to chase "AI" tech, but I don't think the Vocaloid 5 Editor, CyVa, or Songman were part of the problem.

Really outside of price, which is a personal problem and not something I am willing to argue, I don't know where a lot of the anti-Vocaloid 5 sentiment comes from.

Show thread

I didn't know the Editor was that controversial. I liked it a lot and the Premium Edition's pricing was reasonable if you had purchased V3 or V4 Editor especially since it included CyVa and SongMan.

I think the tech upgrades from V4->V5 are even more than V3->V4. It brought back some of the fine editing and tuning we haven't seen since V1 days. Also, they added VST mode so great for integrating into your DAW.

Why do people tag their Hatsune Miku stuff on dA with ? Or just put unrelated tags in there, I know it allows you to put up to 30, but you don't need to fill it with unrelated stuff.

Am I going crazy or did there used to be a series called " UTAU Tips " and then made a joke about not being the resampler in its title?

Hey, this is everything I like.
You have excellent taste Mr. Algorithm.
Also every time I hear the horrible compression of Grand Avalon Casino on YT I am sad. It looses so much of its dynamic range vs the Bandcamp version.
Bad YT compression, bad!
