Icon   Somebodyrandom ...Is it wrong to say something negative on a new Vocaloid when everyone else is being so positive???

Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Unpopular opinions

    I think my main problem with most western or english speaking fans, who complain about popular Vocaloids, is that they are unwilling to create content for their favourite Voicebanks. They expect others to do that for them instead. (hey, I don't know japanese. maybe many japanese fans are as whiney as we are. hehe) If we really cared about them so much we would sit our ass down and do something about this. Be it collaborating with each other or doing solo stuff.


    This has been my crib since Vocaloid2.

    One thing is for sure, Miku will get 800-1000 songs a month, without fail most months, this keeps her popular. ITs a wasted effort to pick on her because the overwhelming uploads, fanart, etc can't be beat by a handful of people complaining. Popularity breeds popularity. In fact, if Miku lost her popularity without another vocaloid taking up the reins or the others jointly filling in together, then Vocaloid would take a huge tumble.

    It was a point in Vocaloid2 that even if you produce VY1 and VY2, who are among the HQ of the V2 era... Plenty of producers still resulted to using basic V2 vocaloid, even not bothering with her Appends because there was a stigma against them in V2. They never sold as many as the original vocal did and many of the Japanese producers refused to touch them as they "didn't sold like Miku".
  2. In Topic: Hatsune Miku vs Miku Hatsune: Romanization or Western Order

    Posted 10 Jan 2018

    I think I prefer "Hatsune Miku".

    Not really bothered though... I only get slightly ticked off if I see "Hatsune Miku" and "Miku Hatsune" being used at the same time in an article.

    Most of the time I use just "Miku" anyway out of laziness, I usually see "Miku" from others too.
  3. In Topic: Your thoughts on EVEC?

    what?

    Spoiler


    Try out EVEC, if you like it use it. If you don't, don't use it. Don't let other people stop you.

    I am not going to point out where something is written on a wiki page. Other then if you read on mobile form, there are templates left off a page often (Edit: on my mobile I can't even see our front page which annoys me to hell and back... All that appears is the "trending" pages which is useless to me). But yes, there was a lot of reaction towards it. In fact if you note the large chunk of writing on Luka alone and compare it with the other V4x or most other Vocaloids, you can see it was analysed to death by everyone.Fun fact about the provider herself reacting and commenting on how its more like her; I pulled that link from here on VO forums. So at *some point* someone here brought it up. So its made its rounds here on VO itself long ago.

    All it is in the past when I have brought up references directly, there have been people who didn't believe me anyway so I've long given up doing this. ITs not just here on VO forums either. As I said before. I'm just not running through hoops anymore for anyone. I don't even respond to validate if I'm right or wrong anymore, because even when I am correct its not much of an achievement.

    If you don't speak Japanese, that's fine but you've only got this fandoms word for it then - which is bad because we've said things that have turned out to be horribly wrong in the past. But the language barrier is understandable. As I note, I can't comment on Chinese, Spanish or Korean vocaloids at all. Other then some basic Vocaloid facts there is nothing I can say... Don't want to either. Remember there are times when we say one thing and it turns out the Japanese fandom is saying the opposite here... To us "Tonio was ugly" upon his release, to the Japanese "beautiful". We were complaining about English vocaloids being unrealistic while the Japanese were praising ours for being more realistic then theirs (2010 period, wouldn't put money on it now). I have other examples, but this isn't what the topic is about.

    Quote

    From what little time I had with Luka V4X's trial, I actually liked EVEC a lot. ]


    Aye! used the trial myself. I use most trials as soon as they get up and running. Not saying her Hard voicebank was disappointing, its just to me... It wasn't what I was expecting based on V2. The softness was one from V2, in fact she sounded and behaved. I knew there was otherstuff coming.

    First time I had hands on with Luka in fact. A lot of my latter opinions on EVEC came afterwards as time went by. There is a lot more knowledge around on it. To me, the biggest fault is just as I said before, you don't need this many variations on a vocaloid vocal in the end as most are either redundant or barely noticeable. I'd still rather have 10 different vocaloids then 10 EVEC vocals. But as I said before, not everyone can afford this.

    The issues was the V3 version they had worked on was going to give us;
    *Normal
    *Power
    *Soft
    *Cute
    *Whisper
    *Closed

    Plus English

    This felt more like the original V2 voicebanks + Append and what we got was Hard/Soft (plus EVEC version, which makes there 4 voicebanks but pointless having two of them)) and EVEC instead replacing this.

    So yeah, my opinion (not my opinion being presented as facts, thank you very much), is they should have done this and perhaps kept a smaller EVEC release. This would have given them feedback and let them expand in future EVEC in other ways. (Miku's EVEC is the only one with diaphonetic transactions in her EVEC). I just can see how they could have done this better. But on a technical level its still a mess.

    Stop presenting your opinion as fact. And stop making stuff up. You are not an expert on voicebanks. Have you even used any of these?

    I don't personally myself think its utter crap, just that its not as good as people

    -See here

    To me, she was the worst and the following two V4x vocals didn't go the same direction as CFM got frightened by the reaction at Luka V4x

    -CFM had lots of mixed reactions from Luka V4x, it was in the Japanese fandom at the time a lot of reactions were going on, not all happy.


    The reaction in Japan was worst then here

    -Even if I bring solid proof nobody damn well believed it back in V2, so why would they believe it now???

    to which even the provider herself reacted and stating people should feel happy she sounds like her

    -its on her V4x product page on the wikia, this reference, I'm not doing the work for anyone here.


    -------

    Look, even if you don't own a voicebank, there was so much said about the voicebank when it was released that it was not difficult to find both good and bad reactions from everywhere, and the fact the provider reacted alone to the criticism was enough to set the tone.

    I'm not presenting my opinions as fact, I'm basing my opinions on facts.

    You don't always need to use the software to dig up the issues with some of these vocals, but I've said since V2 if there is a lot of Japanese fans saying the same thing versus 1 person in the western fandom saying something otherwise... Who will I believe? Yes, the one western fan saying its a great product or the hundreds complaining from Japan? That would be stupid on anyones part! I like to think as the Japanese fandom is bigger and more organised or professional they friggin know what their saying versus our amateur and low key fandom. And often, we get things wrong because we don't know as much as they do because they have more information on Vocaloid then we do.

    I don't speak on matters I don't know anything about either.

    edit;

    for the record notice how I never comment too greatly on Chinese, Korean or Spanish Vocaloids? I don't know much Spanish, Chinese or Korean and their voicebanks, whereas I know more then I want on English and Japanese - one is a language I speak, the other is in my face every day, its not hard to find information on either language over the span of 8 years, I've been in this fandom since 2009! I refuse to make too many comments on the 3 languages I don't know much about.

    There is a lot of stuff and reactions to Luka V4x in Japan. It was hard not to damn well notice some of it at one point.

    Hey I just now saw where you replied to me in the Vocaloid headcanons a long time ago. I had agreed with someone who said Kaito sounded gay and you said gay people don't sound a certain way. I just wanted to let you know that I agree. I was only joking based off stereotypes. As a gay person myself, I know the idea we all sound the same doesn't hold water. Hope you weren't too upset :)
