    So an idea I've had for a few days is, what if I were to interview you UTAU creators and users? These interviews would almost certainly be about character creation, what drove you to make your UTAU, your struggles (if any) from the process, etc.

    I've been playing around in my head with the idea of actually speaking in person, sort of like a podcast, and drawing a chibi TYPE to match. Think of it like voice provider-in character talkloids? Idk.

    does this sound like something anyone else is interested in?

    OP UPDATE OCTOBER 15, 2017
    @Melomad is my right hand pal in this.

    If you're unable to do voice calls there is the option to be given the list of questions and have those answers recorded, then sent to me. Please let me know if you need that instead! Please also have Audacity or another program capable of recording handy if we do make a voice call, and have that going during to make sure your audio gets recorded (so that I may get that and put it together with mine, splotchy internet protection, etc)

    Current planned interview: @Euphy
    1.) @Yozane (We may come back to her if she feels up for it at a later time.)
    2.) @Euphy
    3.) @Kuku Klock

    I remember there being something like this about a year or so ago, even though there was only 1 or 2 "episodes" done, but a lot of people seemed to be wanting to be interviewed. I don't know if that amount of interest is still present right now, but still. At least I'm interested! :sing:

    Yes I need more diversity in UTAU content on youtube! Let me be your co-host (or helping hand, or moral support, or anything really)

    I think it'll depend on the user accomplishement. For example if you interview CZ, you'll ask questions about her reclist etc

    Yes, this exactly. However, that doesn't mean that things are going to be limited to users that everyone knows!
    For users who are just general UTAU users or reclist writers, I'll ask things specific to their trade.

    Let's take myself for example. I don't do anything special. I'm only known on this forum because of my VCCV thread and because I write pretty frequently.
    For a person like myself, I would probably ask things like, "What were your reasons for being so into VCCV and recording it?" or "What are your thoughts on a non-English voice bank?"

    Of course, there are general questions that are able to be asked to anyone, like "how did you come up with the name/character design?"

    It's not meant to highlight already popular users, more so just give others something fun to do and get the word out (well, provided this gets attention, haha).

    I hope this makes sense!

    You could also ask questions about how they got into Utau and why they made their first Utau! I think learning about everyones beginner experiences would be interesting. A few other cool questions might be about recording such as how they record, where they record, or pitfalls/mistakes they made when they were just starting out!

    These questions are defonitely going to be incorporated and answers may vary, which is even better!

    Haha, this is something I've already done before XD Common questions were of course, about their Utau, what inspired them to make them, how they learned of the program, their (Utau's)names, their designs, etc. And what keeps them going(never really interviewed random ppl, just a couple friends, plus it helped me get to know them better :3)

    It's always nice to hear the image the creator themselves were trying to create when they made their Utau, and how that may differ from those who simply use the Utau, I think ^^

    TBH I feel like this could be a lot of fun. And a great way for users to learn more about each other and stuff!

    :shades: should I add you to the queue?

    I'm glad people are interested! This may actually be a successful little project, then! However, an important point is that I would like to conduct the interviews via a voice call or something, so it depends on how comfortable y'all would be with that!

    Alright! I guess since you're seeming pretty willing I'll get some questions down and we can find a time to call. It doesnt have to be video call! Do you have discord or Skype? Are you comfortable actually speaking with me?
