Aiko 9th anniversary video postponed

Whew, I am in way over my head! I’m sorry to do this but there will likely not be a standard cover or new VB demo/release by July 10th this year.

It feels odd to break habit, but unfortunately Aiko’s birthday is at a rather inconvenient time. I’m neck-deep in UTAUVision, Miku Expo is on the 12th for me and I’m in the middle of preparing for that. Also, commissions that need to get done.

I’m currently in the process of recording Aiko’s VCCV English, and at the time of posting this, I am only around 1/2 done with RockLoud on its own. Rather than rush things out and get overwhelmed, I’m putting things on hold until after Miku Expo DC. I don’t think I’ll be able to hit Studio VOXYZ’S anniversary on the 17th either, so instead I’ll aim for the tail end of a July to post a nice big thing!

Now this doesn’t mean I won’t be doing ANYTHING for Aiko’s big day. I do have a small something planned, nothing too radical just a cute throwback that I’ve been meaning to post for a while.

So please wish us luck! So much to do so little time!

Dropbox downloads removed

I’ve decided that due to the limited space, sharing and file update capabilities afforded by the free level of Dropbox, that Google Drive—and soon, Bowlroll—will be the ideal hosts for my voicebanks from here on out. Therefore I have removed all Dropbox downloads from our UTAU pages.

If you run into any issues with Google Drive links, do let me know!

Kikyuune Akiko CVVC JP demo!

A few days ago for Mother’s Day this year, I posted a little surprise for my mom: the first public demo of her CVVC Japanese voicebank, singing a duet with Aiko!

Some people have commented asking if I have plans for Akihiko (my dad’s UTAU) for Father’s Day, and I guess that depends on if he’s willing/able to rerecord… so I guess we’ll see?
