It’s been a while! I’m happy to say that the overhaul of the Studio VOXYZ website is FINALLY complete, save for a few tweaks that may happen here or there.
Below is a list of the changes and QoL improvements:
faster loading times (removed clunky plugins, lazy-loading media, caching)
updated sidebar (decluttered widgets)
revamped voicebank pages with tabbed content
all download links fixed!
brand spankin’ new banner!
general cleanup and organization
From here on out, most minor news will be posted via our Twitter, and you can see the latest tweet on the sidebar under Quick News. The @StudioVOXYZ account retweets content posted from my main that is related to vocalsynth media, as well as fanart and works using VOXYZ-series characters. Small updates (such as minor voicebank fixes, etc.) will be posted there instead of as longform blogging. The blog will be reserved for sharing new videos, major updates/releases, and end-of-month overview posts.
Also, most news will be crossposted over to the Community tab on my YouTube page, so be sure to turn on notifications if that’s your preferred news method!
It’s hard for me to believe that my virtual daughter will be turning 10 years old next week, and I’ve been working hard to prepare a few special things for her special day!
On July 10th, should all the preparation go well, I hope to hold a brand new voicebank demo premiere on YouTube. However, if the demo is not ready quite in time, I will instead take that day to do a celebratory livestream and stream some of the remaining work on Twitch. If that happens I’ll aim to release on the 17th, which will be the Studio VOXYZ channel’s 10th anniversary!
Either way, be sure to join me on YouTube & Twitch on July 10th! There may still be a surprise announcement that day… 👀
Also! As part of Kikyuune Aiko’s upcoming 10th anniversary celebration, I’m pleased to announce a limited preorder-only acrylic charm featuring Aiko and her signature balloons (and Fuu)!
The final charms will be 3″ tall, not including the star attachment, and have a sparkly glitter epoxy coat to protect the double-sided print!
Preorders will be available from now until July 31st and are expected to ship out early August.
Hey all! A lot has happened through the past couple of weeks, so I’m going to shove it all into one major post. Right now following the Studio VOXYZ Twitter is the best way to keep up with new YT/NND/SoundCloud posts and news snippets, but I’ll try to make a point of posting more detailed updates here on a regular basis!
First things first, as you Twitter followers might already know, I’m participating in a MEIKO compilation album titled “Dark Chocolate and Maraschino Cherry” which is currently hosting a KickStarter project for a physical release. At the time of posting this, we’ve already hit more than twice our initial stretch goal, at an incredible $1500! There’ll be plenty more updates to come, so be sure to follow the project to see song and art progress.
Additionally, my “Evil Food Eater Conchita” cover from last year is up on YouTube and NND! Good to finally have that cover up, as it was my first-ever released UST (from 2009! in romaji! with wrong lyrics!) that I’d fixed up and reposted to SoundCloud last year. People kept hounding me for YEARS to re-release this one. The UST, as usual, is up on the Covers USTs/VSQs page. Enjoy!
I’m also pleased to announce that the USTs and off-vocal for “Retrospectre” are available in the upload descriptions on YouTube, NND, and our new StudioVOXYZ SoundCloud! While I’m not abandoning my personal account (MystSaphyr), it has been relegated to cover, scrap and repost content only. The new SoundCloud account will be for uploading original songs and remixes/arranges, but will also host playlists for Studio VOXYZ voicebank demos. Be sure to give it a follow!
And finally, stay tuned for the annual Ariella and Aiko November 12th birthday duet next week! Mooncrafter and I are working extra hard on it this year!
It’s been almost 10 years since I started up my singing synth YouTube channel, and as of 2 days ago I’ve finally hit the 10k subscriber mark!
While in the grand scope of YouTube (and even in the larger VOCALOID/UITAU community) this isn’t exactly the biggest milestone, it’s a very important one for me. I had no idea I’d ever reach this point and I’m extremely grateful to each and every person who enjoyed my content enough to follow my little singing robot project. In addition, my personal Twitter account (@MystSaphyr) has reached 3k followers. Geez.
In celebration, and to liven up things on the channel a bit (since unfortunately real life continually interferes in my video production plans) I’ve posted a cover of DIVELA’s “METEOR” using IA and IA_Rocks on the Mobile VOCALOID Editor. It’s something small for now, but I also have an original song post lined up for this weekend as a proper big 10k celebration. It’ll be the first original I’ve written that was on my own production time and not to meet a compilation album deadline, so I’m fairly proud of it!
UPDATE 10/14: In order to not rush myself due to overestimating the time it would take for mixing/video editing on my new song, I’m pushing it back to next weekend. HOWEVER I will be posting a video for an original today! (It’s just one of my earlier originals that didn’t have a video yet!)
And rest assured, I’m still neck-deep in work for Aiko’s VCCV, which will be coming by the end of the year! I hope y’all will look forward to it!
