Catching up!

It’s been a while! I have several things to catch up on, so I’ll get the quick stuff out of the way first.

I updated all voicebank download links on Aiko’s wiki, and I’m in the process of switching her Facebook page over to a general Studio VOXYZ fanpage! While the URL change was easy enough though, Facebook is being stubborn in allowing me to change the page name. So there’s a chance it might stay in Aiko’s name. However, I’m going to start using it to post a lot more stuff Studio VOXYZ related!

And now for the videos I’d neglected to post! Aiko’s birthday was on the 10th of this month, and as a send-off to her English CVVC (as I’ll be focusing on recording VCCV), I posted a remake of an older cover: “Fireflies” by Owl City!

(Yes. Mostly for the memes.)

If you’re curious, you can hear the old cover here.

Also, I’m proud to announce my third original song! I produced “Siren’s Lament” for the MIRIAM 13th Anniversary collaboration “The Lady and the Silver Circle”, a 7-song compilation album which you can download for free here!

I tried to go for a sea-shanty feel in my song, which tells the story of a mermaid/siren (MIRIAM) who falls in love with a human (LOLA). And though he doesn’t sing, I intended for LEON to be the sailor mentioned in the lyrics! Perhaps someday I’ll make a full PV with all 3 of them…

A few minor announcements

Hey all! It’s been hectic over here, and it’s way late into September for me to be posting a much-belated August features, so I’m going to be posting a dual-month entry on October 1st.

I have a few things coming up that I’m pretty excited about. For one, a generous UTAU user has been currently working on splicing up Aiko’s CVVC samples and is nearly done! I’ll re-release Aiko’s CVVC as V.6.1 as soon as I receive the fixed bank. This should fix any resampler/FRQ errors she’s been having.

Also, I’m working on another original song. Normally I wouldn’t post anything about this sort of project, but seeing as the deadline is Halloween day, I figured this might be the sort of kick in the rear I need to get things moving. The lyrics are around half done and the song will likely use Sonika, since I should try my hand at actually making Vocaloid stuff once in a while.

Also, to those asking about Aiko’s VCCV, I plan to finish BalladSoft as soon as I get the time/space to do so. And there’s a bit of a chance that’ll happen this weekend. So here’s hoping.

That’s all for now!
