I've been an Vocal Synthesizer artist and creator since 2012, I'm posting this thread to ask a few questions as I'm very outdated to my knowledge and would love to learn more to continue creating and even innovating some ideas I have planned. First of all I want to speak of voicebanks. I first started when Japanese CV was most popular and used. then stayed around until Japanese VCV was the most popular. after that I took a long break from UTAU and missed the rise of English CVVC AND VCCV. I came back when Arpasing was actively being updated. I'm a little lost at the moment and a little disappointed to see the development of Moresampler and Arpasing has slowed down and no longer is being supported by the creator. I've been looking at the resources and most of the websites are broken or outdated. I currently have a 8 Pitch Japanese VCV. Monopitch English VCCV and Monopitch Arpasing (using the original creators 1.0 and 2.0 recording list) all are finished. I'm currently brainstorming the marketing and design of my UTAU character but as I'm lost I don't know where or how to share my voicebanks or if anyone is even actively using UTAU anymore. I am interested in DEEPVOCAL but I do not understand at all how it works. Second. I'd like to speak of the UTAU program itself. from my knowledge the Windows version has not been updated since 2013/9/5 and I'm wondering in the future if it'll become almost unusable as technology advances and I'm wondering if it'll be less engaging for future creators as it's appearance and the way it functions is very obsolete, I was actually working on my own synthesizer for awhile but as I'm battling PTSD and PD and receiving professional help for these diagnoses it's hard for me to truly focus on creating the program. I do think DEEPVOCAL looks modern and could be the next UTAU. I'm being brave saying that but what I've seen from it so far has been incredible but again I do not understand how to use it or import my voicebanks into it. if any of you have resources to help me better understand DEEPVOCAL please let me know. Third. this may be controversial to speak of but I believe there's a huge factor missing nowadays in terms of UTAU design and marketing. there's a lot of people against following the Crypton Future Media formula but there's a reason it succeeded. think of the VIPPERLOIDS, I do not agree with the "trolling" aspect of their releases but I do believe they have some of the best and most memorable UTAU designs and voices I've seen and heard. we may need to think about marketing our UTAU characters in a way that's memorable and impactful. Kasane Teto is even featured in Project Diva. I have a project in the back of my mind that includes taking some aspects of VOCALOID design and modernizing them to look more "techwear" I also really am losing interest in Japanese music. don't get me wrong I definitely love Japan and it's culture and even some music but as I do not understand Japanese I'd like to focus on English. Final. I am interested in finding a way to use, innovate and market english voicebanks in a way that is clean, polished and realistic. my final question is what is the best formula for creating english voicebanks. I honestly find it much easier to use English VCCV compared to Arpasing. even then it's a lot of work for not much or nothing in return and I want to find the missing key we need to break into mainstream pop culture as the Crypton Future Media VOCALOIDS did. this thread is not mean to be negative in anyway. if anything it's me asking how we can further this community into the future. I look forward to your responses. thank you for reading.
