In the past, when I was reading a few articles about UTAU, if there is something clueless to me, it's this: Spoiler Yamaha does not support or endorse the UTAU software. Yes, UTAU is created Ameya/Ayame, an indie software programmer. Every voice recording technique is developed by most indie users. However, this makes me thinking about something - was Yamaha frowned and unpleasant over the development of UTAU software back then? Seeing its potential as legal alternative to pirated Vocaloid, I feel this could be another mystery to every UTAU user who can't purchase Vocaloid due to constant financial issue. And this includes myself, the one who still cannot buy Vocaloid but really wishes to get trial version of VY1, and the latest VOCALOID5 Ken and Kaori.
