    ,,Is that a VOCALOID?''

    nope

    ,, What the hell is she singing?''

    A Japanese song in Japanese. You wouldn't understand even if it would be in English.

    ,, Why does she look like/sound like Luka/Miku/Rin/Gumi?! Are you stealing their voices??!''

    Look at the title please and go google it. And, what, can't other non-fictional characters have pink/blue/green/yellow hair without you coming in here and being triggered and having a major childish tantrum? You can go back to playing Pokémon.

    ,, Why is she singing so low? What horrible singing.''

    Not as horrible as Justin Bieber's/Ariana Grande behaviors to other people. At least, mine will not hurt you or worse. (you decide)

    And a possible scenario that can happen:

    ,, Hey, that character is already made from someone else! You're stealing/taking credit that isn't yours!!''

    Eh, excuse me? It's MINE. So, if you can kindly give me the link to the one who ah a 'similar' character than mine - I would like to have a chat with them and call for reinforcement.

    mom: "miku is annoying please stop"
    mother whay have you forsaken me

    younger sis: she recorded a reclist without bgm and it lacked an oto guideline so "what's taking so long for you to oto?!??1?" 'ts kinda my fault for not finding a proper reclist tho so rip (spoilers: i abandoned it GOOD B Y E )

    my friends are good beans but they pronounce utau as yoo-tow and that might be annoying for some of you lol

    idk i'd rather stay away from the idea of talking about utau with people unless it's obvious that they know their stuff

    This is like with every non-UTAU people:

    "Is this YOU singing this?"

    Eh, no????? Even tho I voiced the voice bank doesn't mean that singing voice that you hear is human me singing.

    "How your UTAU can sounds like that he/she sounds completely different than you!??"

    Have you ever heard word "voice acting"?????

    "Wow, it sounds so high technology! You're so smart, I could never do ever a simple voicebank or whatever it is called - an you-tha-uh?!? The coding of voice bank must be very difficult and make in sing an all, sounds very complicated!"

    ... (I don't even code anything nor make UST/MIDI myself... I only voice, configure VBs and write reclists)

    "What is your hobby?"

    UTAU

    "What is that?!?"

    *explains what UTAU is*

    "What, I don't understand. What do you do in that? Singing? Making robots?! I don't get???"

    *sighs* Basically, it's a chanting chaman's magic words in a closet KAKAKIKAKUKEKA in 2 octaves and repeat that 299 times and then I cut different "sounds" of each chanting (e.g. "ka" "ya" la"), then glue those sounds together in UTAU: select a length and pitch of sound and ta-dA it sings!

    Once I was talking with a guy that knew about VOCALOID about DEX & DAINA and they were like "They're not VOCALOIDs, they're "Utaloids" and I was like "u bih I use UTAU since 2-3 years I MAY know the difference" but I just tried to explain them calmly who DEX & DAINA were, but I don't think they've given attention to me.

    My friend thinking that Makiko's full name is UTAUMakiko when I told them a thousand times that it's Honoune Makiko.

    The same friend that, when I was using Kanochi Neko, said: "Wow, is it you???" and then I got mad.

    "It's Japanese, why do you listen to that, do you understand what they say?!"
    Or "This is shitty music, listen to real one!" and then they listed to trashy/cringey/trivial Italian rap.

    "Why is it so strange?", while I'm otoing and they're in front of the damn screen.

    Fortunately, my mother and my sister are OK with it and even if my mom doesn't understand it that much, she's always happy when I achieve something nice using UTAU/VOCALOID.
    I'm not sure about my father, he once just told me "Wouldn't it be easier singing it by yourself?" and then I replied that it is more funnier and full of possibility, since my range is quite reducted.

    When I asked my friend to make an utau with me and showed her some examples she was like: "Woah that's really nice! I wanna try it with you too aslong as you'll help me" mean while her friends were like:

    "Pleaze can you not? They're just so weird"
    Maybe its because you only know Teto and judge the whole utau community with her.

    "Ugh Why cant you just sing it. Japanese isnt that hard."
    Uh maybe because not all people have nice singing voices like you? and I bet you cant even sing The Lunacy of Duke Venomania properly without fumbling and messing around. Besides, I like the concept of utau. How cool is that?

    "Stop repeating that syllable/part over and over again!!!" (while I am tuning a song in our sleepover. i was OP so yeah lol)
    Uh, well excuse you, I'm trying to fit this utau to at least sound natural in this song and not like a robot

    "Wow such weeb."
    K. Atleast I dont listen to "Silhouette" 24/7 without actually knowing Naruto's storyline. I bet you dont even know its from Naruto unless I tell you so.

    "Bruh, you only want to buy a microphone just for that?!?!"
    Yes. Yes I do.

    "Can you stop talking about that thing??"
    Uh, can you stop talking about Jimin's abs 24/7? Just because I listen to kpop songs doesnt mean I'm comfortable listening to you screaming about his abs.

    If you want me to stop talking about UTAU, you gotta stop talking about your "biases" first.

    Has been bothering me recently:

    Kid: "How do you do this thing?"
    Me: "<explains said thing>"
    Kid: "<ignores>"
    Some other Kid: "<explains said thing>"
    Kid: "Oh ok thanks"
    Me: :^)

    When I was tuning, my roommates always think I'm in stocks or drawing circuit diagrams



    Some sharpkey users say that sharpkey is much better than UTAU(and Vocaloid)

    I go out of my way to make sure people irl don't find out I'm into things like this. It's not that I fear their reactions, I just don't want to have to explain myself to them. Things usually go like this...

    "What are your hobbies?"
    Oh nothing.

    "Who is this character?"
    Just someone I made up.

    "What are you listening to?"
    Music.

    "What do you do on your free time?"
    Cry, tbh...

    I will only confess if they do first. Which, for people irl, it's been fairly successful.

    Mom: what's this cartoon singing?
    Me: It's an UTAU
    Mom: utavut?
    Me: UTAU
    *Tavut means dawn recipients in dialect in Italian Language (funerat etc.)
    Mom: I don't understand (yeah, she Always says so... even when I talked about al-Zaydi!)
    --- Double Post Merged, Sep 4, 2017 ---
    I couldn't write in the same post IDK
    Continue!!!!
    Me: UTAU is acomputer voice synth program bla bla bla bla
    Mom: But if you have a beautiful voice, why do you want to use a synth?
    Me: I can't use the synth, but I want to listen to it sometimes
    Mom: Why?
    Me: IDK
    Mom: You Always do strange things... you sing with strange people (she calls my Arab friends mujaidin), you play with 80-yo senious Japanese folk songs (and she's wrong... she's talking about wapop), you do this, you do that... why not normal things?
    Me: You don't understand...

    instrument utau user problems:

    "Why not just use a real instrument?"
    ok this one bothers me the most
    a) i dont have money for an instrument
    b) instruments take a long time to learn
    c) its even harder playing faster songs
    d) i have asthma and cant even play wind instruments save for melodica

    (from my friends who know about UTAU but don't use the program) "You should make a regular UTAU voice rather than instruments."
    another one that bothers me
    a) i dont have money for a microphone and often use my laptop mic to record instrument banks when i don't use samples from the internet
    b) i cant sing at all and the one time i tried to make a bank it came out awful and i scrapped it because it was off key

    theres more but im lazy

    It doesnt bother me much when someone who at least has an argument on it, but on the past people came (specially some random VOCALOID fans) to me (and Mougeki Mero) all like "why is she an instrument? UTAU is meant for voices" "Just download a DAW" "If she doesnt have a voice she isnt an UTAU character".

    Honestly, I can't afford to pay 70 bucks for a GarageBand copy with more features. Instrument Utau are free, and much easier to use than complicated programs who have features I won't ever use. The people who create instrument UTAU are saints.

    My friend is actually into utau, listens to them, but doesn't want to record one.

    And people I've told about them seem generally interested. (I didn't mention they're mostly Japanese anime tropes)

    But one thing I've come across that made me want to hang my head was when I was rendering an oto in the kitchen a while back, and my brother came in and said "Are you hacking? Dude, you're gonna get a virus."

    Not really mad, just sort of ugh.

    My dad says that i spent too much time in UTAU and that he doesn't like it. He always mocks me saying ''nya nya nya'' or that i listen to rats singing.
    Now i don't talk about it in my house because he told me that he was going to take my computer away :cry:
