I’m a bit late in posting this here, but for this year’s Rayfes on Nicovideo, I collaborated with other UTAU users BagelHero/Halo and Mario.MD/Yue to create an arrange cover of the Samurai Champloo ED! Yue tuned Ray’s vocals, Halo did the lovely art, and I arranged and mixed the BGM and edited the video.
The off-vocal and UST distribution will be at a later time, I have to adjust a couple of USTs before they can be released.
By now, I’m sure most have seen that the VOCAMERICA concert has been fully funded and has even hit its first 2 stretch goals! Incredible!! With these upgrades, the concert merchandise has been expanded to include other items and performers, and Aki has gotten Avanna locked in for future concerts! Thank you all so much!
An item included in the merch upgrade is an Aiko keychain, including a backer-exclusive alternate color scheme Aki has dubbed Summer Sun! I can’t wait!!
In other important news, yesterday (7/10) was Aiko’s 7th birthday! I deeply apologize for not having something uploaded sooner, but a perfect storm of a sinus infection, bad weather, long work hours and Pokémon GO (oops) prevented me from preparing her new voicebanks in time. Worry not, however, Aiko’s 7th bday celebrations will last until the end of the month, culminating in a new voicebank reveal and/or release on the 31st!
Here’s a new cover featuring Aiko! It’s “Try Everything” from the movie Zootopia, as originally performed by Shakira. I had a ton of fun tuning this one, and for the first time since 2014, I’ve actually released a UST! I promise I’ll be fixing and uploading my older ones as soon as I get the chance;;
