Myst will be hosting the UTAU info panel “UTAU: Free Virtual Vocalists” at this year’s Yama-con in Pigeon Forge, TN! The panel will be in the Fan Panel 1 area at 11:15 AM on Friday Dec. 1st.
That evening at 5:30, VOCAMERICA will be in Main Events! Please join us for an awesome evening of Western Vocaloid and UTAU music!
As part of Studio VOXYZ’s initiative to teach others about vocalsynths, Myst has produced informative panels that she presents at fan conventions. She also hosts UTAU fan meets at both conventions and concerts.
UTAU: Free Virtual Vocalists
This panel about the UTAU software consists of a brief fandom history, an intro to some of the prominent characters, and a quick rundown of the process of creating a voicebank. It includes video examples of unique UTAU in various languages and voice types, and ends with a software demonstration.
VOCALOID Culture: Beyond the Voice
This is a newer panel that focuses on the unique creative culture surrounding the vocalsynth idol-in-a-box concept. It discusses the use of VOCALOID in doujin works in Japan, introduces Western producers that often slip under the general fandom radar, and explains how fans can support artists within the community and become content creators themselves.
A VOCALOID Eulogy: Where is Miku now?
The title is tentative, but this is a planned upcoming panel about various companies’ transition from Yamaha’s VOCALOID to other synth engines (CeVIO, SynthV, Piapro NT).
