I can sort of draw, but it's difficult so idk whether or not to include it. I'm also good at mixing in choruses.

    Name: TheEndIsNearUs / End
    Contact info: ApawcalypseMeow@Gmail.com, TheEndIsNearUs on Skype
    Availability: US Central time, most week days, after 17:00 on weekends
    OS: Windows 10, but familiar with Mac OS
    Additional skills: I'm a linguistics major with a specialization in phonetics, and I plan to work with speech synthesis as my career. I speak English fluently, French conversationally, and a little bit of Japanese and Spanish. I understand the phonology of English, all romance languages, Japanese, and Korean, and can read and write both IPA and X-SAMPA. For these reasons, I say my specialty is writing reclists, but I am also very good at otoing and transcribing music. I am okay at tuning and mixing, but not the best. Also, I'm a cartoonist, so I have knowledge of both art skills and character design. Lastly, I've been using UTAU regularly for the past five years.

    I'm still looking for 2 more people to join so that there will be a total of 10 tutors when this project starts. Though I guess I could start with 8.

    Name: Jeffrey / Jraxiosn / Digiwulf000
    Contact info: tibthedragon(at)gmail(dot)com
    Availability: at weekends. i attend school, so maybe some nights if fate allows it. I'm at the Beijing Timezone (+8:00)
    OS: Win7 Ultimate (Japan locale)
    Additional skills:
    • Only touched Japanese Voicebanks, but is an all-arounder when it comes to encoding type (CV, VCV, CVVC) using setparam and the built-in oto editor. Haven't really had my oto works checked, but I think I could make really choppy VBs into something doable.
    • Not really into .ust/midi making, still learning. I can create midis by ear, but that'll take a week to finish a single song.
    • A newbie. Just using UTAU for two years, but I kinda covered the basics. I use some plugins: (Bizz's AiO plugin, lyric diphonizer, frq editor, A LA CARTE (omakase))
    • Still learning the art of mixing with compressors, EQ, and some built-in effects in REAPER. Had some nasty experience with Audacity.
    • 15 years old.
    i'm just taking my chances XD

    No problem, also sadly I'm recovering from a head injury as well, so I'd like to be online somewhat less for a couple more weeks. I'll try to get back in touch as soon as I can though and help out.

    Name: DessertTaiga
    Contact info: I'm here, but you contact me via email.
    Availability: Depends if I have school or not. Timezone is GMT+8:00 (Philippine Time). Since Dec. 19, 2016, I am available. However, it might change starting Jan. 3, 2017 since that's my school's resume of classes.
    OS: Windows XP (a bit outdated, but I have Japanese locale. Hehe, just kidding I have no Japanese locale. On the serious side, though with no Japanese locale, UTAU works fine on my computer.)
    Additional skills:
    - Mixing skills with Audacity.
    - Some UST making. Still learning, though.
    - Despite not being an expert, I can teach the basics of UTAU.
    - I use some plugins like Bizz's iroiro plugin.
    - Can speak and understand English and Filipino. I'm still learning Japanese, so I prefer the former two.
    - 19 years old.

    Is this still a thing???

    I could help/give tips for writing recording lists (for Japanese and other languages) and teach possibly basic things about oto'ing CV, CVVC (JP and no-JP) and VCV.

    I also could help with character designing and stuff related on Mac/UTAU-Synth if needed.

    Ps. I know some Japanese, so I could also help with translating...?? (NOT in native level, tho)

    This project now has enough tutors to start up!
    This thread will still be open for anyone else who wants to join as a tutor, but it's time to get the ball rolling.
    UTAforum is the only method of contact that 100% of us have, so I will be sending out a PM and we'll work together on all the plans.

    The first of the four parts of Saint Defoko's to be opened will most likely be individual tuition!
