If you showed your starting-out self your UTAU now, how do you think they’d react?

    Say you went back in the past to when you just started UTAU— maybe your past self didn’t have a voicebank yet, or only had the very first version of your UTAU, and you showed them where you are right now. How would they react and what changes along the way to your original plans might they have found unexpected?

    ———————

    I think my past self would be surprised at some of the changes—
    I always wanted to make twin UTAU but I thought I would record a girl VB in my natural tone and a boy one in a voice acted tone. After recording, I realized that my voice was a lot deeper than I thought LEL so— surprise, my natural tone became the boy VB.

    I also spent the longest time not being able to record a feminine voice but I eventually did— but before that I had a friend voice the girl twin. So now.. she actually has two voices LEL

    Also I originally intended the girl to be a strong voice and the boy to be a soft one but now they’re about equal in both (and actually the boy is stronger)

    And actually, I have more UTAU than just those two now and more voicebanks than I thought—

    But I think in the end, they’d be actually happy with where they are right now and might be surprised at all the stuff I made that I never thought I’d make LEL.

    Not to mention changes in design and personality choices, but that goes before my even touching the program LEL. So yeah, lots of development along the way—

    My past self would be probably shocked about that I've made not just two that sounds at least decent but 10 or more UTAU X'DDD

    Also, probably would be so proud of me right not just UTAU VB audio quality etc wise but that their art and character design aren't bad.

    I think they wouldn't really believe that /I/ can do what I am doing right now - clearer VCV voicebanks, more complex videos other than using Movie Maker and character designs that are appreciated by some people

    It's really nice, to see how much you improved since when you were starting out with UTAU compared to the present time

    My past self (2015) would be really happy to see the amount of progress that's been made. All I wanted when I first started was for someone to use my UTAU someday, and that happened. I think they'd also be grateful that she was even released in the first place because it took so long lol

    As for changes they wouldn't expect... back then, she didn't look anything like what she does now, and her last name was also very different. They'd be surprised at the way she sounds, since I used to think she sounded like a boy. unfortunately, she doesn't

    She wasn't supposed to have a brother, so they'd be confused about that, but 2017 me would be even more confused because he's no longer her twin. Either way, they'd both be disappointed that I can't voice him ;v;

    Well, I'm a transguy. I used to have a really high, soft voice but now I have a deep, strong one. So me when I started out four years ago wouldn't recognize it as 'her' voice.

    While I haven't really recorded (well, finished recording) any new voicebanks, I'm sure 13 year old me would've been super happy with the quality of the oto's of her voicebanks lol (before, Mirai and Tani weren't oto'd properly but then I learnt how to do it properly and they sound 1000000x better than before, and they didn't sound too bad in terms of the sound quality anyways lol)

    i used to know that someday i would be so much better than i was, and by being aware of that it frustrated me since i couldn't get there right away. my past self would be totally like "i knew it!" and maybe cry a lot because i love my sons so much,,,,
