Today’s a very special day: I’m extremely excited to announce the very first Kikyuune Family album!

STRATOSPHERE is a compilation album created under Empathy Studios (EmpathP’s VocUTAU label) in collaboration several talented producers from the UTAU community!

The second track, “Face2Face,” is actually my first completed original; it’s a duet between Namida and Aiko about internet or long-distance friendships. To be honest I’m a little embarrassed cause the lyrics are cheesier and cornier than cheddar grits, but I do hope you enjoy!

A few more notes: PlusMinus’ track features Aiko’s beta CVVC Japanese using presamp, and Breaking Point is sung by Aiko’s CVVC English!

Full credits and free download can be found on Bandcamp! Thanks again to everyone who participated!

Below is the crossfade video with previews of each song. I’ve included Face2Face’s lyrics on the Lyrics page, and a special high-rez wallpaper of the album art, drawn by Misha and edited by myself, can be found here.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, since I’ve been pretty busy. But I have a few things I want to share  c:

Firstly, the patriarch of the Kikyuune Family, Akihiko, has been released!

You can download him here!

Secondly, the domain name of the site is now! That’s right, I bought a domain name to use for all Project UTAU XYZ web stuffs~ I’m looking forward to get back into coding, and I plan to abandon both UTAU XYZ blogspots once I’ve got my own site up and running, most likely with wordpress integration or something of the like.

Finally, stay tuned for Akiko’s release in the next few weeks~!

After 3 years, Aiko and Akio are getting parents~!

Kikyuune Akiko has been planned for quite some time, though I’ve never had a good enough mic on my own to record her properly from my own mother. But since I got a Yeti (thank you, mom!) for Christmas, and I ended up visiting my dad for a couple of days, I decided to see how he might sound as well.

You can see how that recording session went…

But thanks to the Yeti, his samples turned out nice and clear, if accented ^^;
His first (and probably only)voicebank should be released soon and includes several joke samples xD
