I can’t believe I never posted this here, but back in February I wrote a song with KAITO for the third and final ABCD Project! I tried to write something a little Grimm fairytale themed, and the song also features Aoki Lapis as chorus vocals. It was a lot of fun to make and I’m glad people seem to have enjoyed it!
Also, I’m happy to announce I’ll be hosting my UTAU: Free Virtual Vocalists panel at this upcoming Momocon in May! More details to come soon once the final schedules are hammered out–it’s already changed location/time once so I want to make sure everything is absolutely set in stone first!
If all goes well, I should have a special item to bring with me to the panel that I might do a raffle for ;D
Seems I also neglected to post this cover. Ah, well, better late than never! Here’s a cover of Kokoro no Fanfare from Pokémon Best Wishes:
Also, as I’ve apparently posted everywhere but here, MTAC was this past weekend and I had a BLAST! The UTAU panel was very well received, and I met up with a couple of other UTAU users and voicers! Nat kept disappearing (*stares at him*) but I did get a photo with everyone else. Please excuse my derpy Fourth Doctor cosplay:

And finally, Aki will be using Aiko in her upcoming UTAU-only album, entitled “Roots”! Here’s a sneak peek at the WIP album art:
I collaborated with Kenji again after he surprised me with a work-in-progress “Breeze” MMD video over the summer. At first, he was planning to use the original music, but after I found the karaoke and a basic UST, I made Aiko sing it. Since the other 2 dancers he used were Teto and Rin Append, I also decided to throw them in to make it a little more interesting. Rin Power can be heard in some glitch/stutter in places, VCV Teto does harmonies, and Rin Sweet + Whisper Teto sing the bridge together.
Many thanks to Kenji for his awesome camera + MME work, to Luna and Sango312 for rendering Rin Append for me, and to KodaP for his mixing tutorial!
Also, though this post is a bit late as I only recently got the photos, but I got to meet up with several UTAU voicers at Anime Weekend Atlanta! Cheesekun, Sparky, Asteriski, Ritz (my friend and Chiyoko’s voicer) and I met up at the Vocaloid photoshoot on Saturday. Sparky was even cosplaying as SHOICHIRO~
As a special meet-up gift, Sparky made plushies of Aiko, Azure, HARMON-E and Chiyoko! ;u; Here’s a close-up of Aiko and Chiyoko:
