Archive for April, 2013

H’okay, so I’ve been gone for well over a year now. I haven’t been able to dedicate a lot of time to working on UTAU due to IRL things getting in the way. But here’s essentially what’s been stagnating in the mean time:

Voicebanks!:

  • Fukai Nekone:

*Has a Japanese standalone of her 1.3 in the works. Smaller voicebank without the 900+Samples of English and multilingual clutter! (Is currently getting samples cleaned up one by one in Audacity and re’otoing them for better clarity). This was severely needed as I still get many requests for a tinier, cleaned up VB. This also means I should work on making her samples shorter too (near 2 seconds per sample is not okay, guys).

*Possible re’otoing and cutting of a few useless samples of her 1.3 Master multilingual voicebank since it’s so freaking huge.

*I see several people still using Fukai’s 1.1 and 1.2 VB and they really aren’t that great, seriously (read: terrible). To save the pain of people still downloading her 1.1 and 1.2 I might (unlikely, of course) go back and fix the oto’s and clean up the samples so they’re at least usable.

  • Fukasa Nekone:

*There’s a 1.2 being worked on. Just like Fukai’s, his ancient samples are being run individually through Audacity to get cleaned up. It’s a Japanese Standalone this time (French 1.1 samples are off-pronunciation and too groggy to work with).

*As I had mentioned before, there are appends! Four to be exact: Susurrant, Flighty, Gravelly,  and Strong. I know I’ve been spouting off about their existence for eons now but all they need is a good cleaning and reworking some oto’s.

There is a sampler (Link!) of how the appends are sounding (Keep in mind, this was before 1.2 started getting cleaned up and the appends getting tweaked oto’s, but here’s what we’re looking at! There is artwork of how his append is going to look too! (Link and Link). The full version of the Love Love Nightmare remix (featuring Fukai 1.3, Fukasa 1.2beta and early stages of his appends) can be found on Soundcloud and Tumblr.

  • Taiyo Inune

There’s a 1.2beta out there already on his wikia page! Granted, it’s oto’s are incomplete but there’s some basic English support in there. I seriously didn’t want Char/Tobo to voice a whole 900+ sample voicebank but it’s coming along nicely. I’m debating whether to filter his VB in Audacity as well (I more thank likely will anyways). If I do need anything voice-wise from him he’s doing to be my roommate here in a month or two!

Links!:

Of course, the links bar on the side has been updated today as well.

Deviantart: I hardly update that anymore. It’s no longer xXxEspeonLadyxXx (thank goodness), it’s simply EspeonLady. I made the mistake of making a whole new account when six months later the option to rename your dA account came along so I lost a lot of watchers and fans in the move. OTL.

Tumblr: EspeonLady is long gone, YouMeAndTheNeko is now BreakingBreakfast.tumblr.com, that’s my main one.

Twitter: @FukaiNekone_bot, @EspeonLady and @iwasagoffick are all deactivated. I have an unrelated to UTAU twitter @BrekkiBreakfast if you’re interested.

Imgur: I have an imgur now, one that’s probably going to get more use than dA too. It started out as where I dump my artwork done for Team Fortress 2 pals, but have dropped a few Fukai pictures in as well. Link!

UTAU wikia: Links updated on: Fukai Nekone, Fukasa Nekone, Taiyo Inune, Anti-Fukai and Taiya Inune today.

Steam: I have a Steam now????

UTAforum: I have no idea on the current state of the UTAforum so I assume it’s still this or this.

Youtube: Still EspeonLady, still empty.

Contact email: now iwasagoffick@yahoo.com

UTAU splashpages (wordpress): Debating on whether to keep those or not.

So yeah, see you whenever I decide to come out of a rock again!
