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!

Happy (slightly belated) 6th birthday, Aiko!

Aaaaand she’s here! Aiko’s RockLoud JP CVVC is released and downloadable on the left sidebar!

Many thanks to everyone who put up with my nonsense over releasing this voicebank and video. I couldn’t have kept my sanity done it without y’all.

The major voicebank details are in the second half of the video, but the basic rundown is she’s 4-pitch CVVC and works in presamp or with autoCVVC. Her oto.ini preutter/overlap are shorter than most CVVC banks, but that was done specifically because any longer and she couldn’t be easily used manually on UTAU-Synth.

I hope you enjoy using her! Even more CVVC (and VCCV) voicebanks to come in the future~

STRATOSPHERE: Debut Kikyuune Family Album!

Today’s a very special day: I’m extremely excited to announce the very first Kikyuune Family album!

STRATOSPHERE is a compilation album created under Empathy Studios (EmpathP’s VocUTAU label) in collaboration several talented producers from the UTAU community!

The second track, “Face2Face,” is actually my first completed original; it’s a duet between Namida and Aiko about internet or long-distance friendships. To be honest I’m a little embarrassed cause the lyrics are cheesier and cornier than cheddar grits, but I do hope you enjoy!

A few more notes: PlusMinus’ track features Aiko’s beta CVVC Japanese using presamp, and Breaking Point is sung by Aiko’s CVVC English!

Full credits and free download can be found on Bandcamp! Thanks again to everyone who participated!

Below is the crossfade video with previews of each song. I’ve included Face2Face’s lyrics on the Lyrics page, and a special high-rez wallpaper of the album art, drawn by Misha and edited by myself, can be found here.
