Miscellaneous updates!

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!

UtaForum Kickstarter!

I’m a bit late in posting this to my personal UTAU blog, but UtaForum is currently in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to license new forum software (Xenforo) to power the fourth version of the site!

We actually reached our goal in the first day of fundraising, but we are currently working on stretch goals which will allow us to obtain some extremely useful plugins for the forum.

Rewards include a nifty forum badge for your profile for when the forum is upgraded, as well as voting tokens which will allow you to suggest and vote on which skins are developed for the new forum (beyond our Defoko standard theme).

So please, if you can, do help us out!

Synthesized Reality Productions – Kickstarter!

Hey all! For those of you who don’t know by now, I’m a member of Synthesized Reality Productions, a Vocaloid concert group. We’ve put together a Kickstarter project to help fund equipment (projectors, cameras) for our upcoming show at Pacific Media Expo!

Please be sure to check it out and help us by donating if you can, this equipment will help us to put on bigger and better shows in the long run at other conventions!
