    And for that matter, an actual male voicer, not some creepy pitched one. No shotas either.

    THANK YOU. I understand why a friend idea won't work, but an utaitte would be good.

    To be fair, the idea was to make a visual troll with a good voice a-la-VIP over there, so the cliches were part of the deal. What we plan to do is unrelated though, so I second a unique design.

    I suggest one of these three:
    1. CV with extra samples
    2. VCV lite
    3. CV-VC

    Again, that's only my suggestion.

    Other than the design one, I completely agree with you

    @Zelfie Windwalker
    a) I agree with a male utau voiced by a guy; will be more appealing.

    b) You can still help your friend to make an UTAU, but if you are going for "a-la-vipper" project you need to get the most high quality bank possible (this will show that OS can do as good job as the JP-users when working together, unlike the recent vipper teams -SCOTT and Bochi-). Male uttaite from YT will be awesome, since it will be a fresh voice.

    c) We could have small "cryptonloid" stuff... yet you need to think on a clever joke for it.

    d) CV-VV-VC would be excelent... if we work with long vowels it will be less strechy and metalic; also a good and long VV set for each combo can have a VCV-like config, resulting in smoother vowel transtions (which sometimes are the most evident in CV banks).


    @Viko
    Even if your "trap voice" it's good, it sometimes "breaks" while singing (yet this can be solved in UTAU anyways due the samples). But as I said... the trap-type UTAULOID is already overdone and somehow boring.

    More than auditions, people should make a list of male uttaites that have good voices, maybe ask like anons which microphone they use and with which accessories/enviroment so we can make a lists of pros and cons and choose the best option. Then ask directly if they want to get into the project but keeping it still as secret. If they deny the offer, move to the next one.

    Viko, you already have a voicebank around and the point of this may be to show a new voice to public, even if voiceacting... the point is making something new.

    As an example, VOCATONE team which the only known co-workers were UTAU-users (Sango, Crossfrown, Legendmaker12, ChaoFreak1) were  criticized for the possibility of one of them voicing the new ENGLOID, meaning more attention to those coworkers and not the product... to make it shorter, it will create obvious drama. If the team uses your voice people will think "Now Viko has a whole team for himself, producing stuff" and no... the team should not battle with those issues... thats why an utaitte with good pronunciation is the best choice for this.

    Also, the most famous VIPPERS have their voicesource from NND-utaittes, so making one from a YT-utaitte would be the most fitting to be presented, not only on the OS-scene, but the JP-fandom too.

    That's what I think.

    ^All very good points...

    So. Anyone else think we need to start with the design? I mean, first we need some basic ideas.
    I don't think we've all confirmed it, but it seems the UTAU will be male.

    this project looks really interesting owo

    I'd like to help with the character design, I also could help with the otos but... mmm I think that it would be better if we show our habilities at otoining and then decided together who should do it... I think it wouldn't be fun if just the oldest utau users do all the work, I mean, there are newbies that also would like to partecipate at this project

    I agree with almost of the things that Yue said

    Woah 0_0 so much going on here already. I have one small thing to say, and I appologize if it has already been said, but the UTAforum UTAU should have a purple color scheme, since the site does. I just think it would match. :3

    Ok people, supposing we actually do this...we need to make a decision on the voice type first, so we can move on to designing. It sounds like the majority of everyone here wants to make a male UTAU, right?

    ...or, everyone gives some input.

    I feel that it should be a male. Maybe like a deep type or tenor-type? We need some males up in UTAU. At least in my opinion. We have too many girls UTAU, and releasing an UTAU with a girl voice for this would just be adding to the list. We need some men. xD //shot

    Is this actually going to happen? I'd really like to see some collaboration here, but if everyone's too busy, then I won't push it.

    As much as I'd like to see a truly awesome UTAU put out by Utaforum users.

    There's been some talk of making a Marie and Callum skin, though.

    Anyway, I think is is a good idea and I'd be willing to offer suggestions sometimes. There's not much I can do to help out but I would like to contribute as much as I can. In my opinion, a male UTAU is best.

    How about a SET of mascots OUO we don't need just ONE UTAU right? I mean, look at it this way, since the community is so big, we can have like at least 3 mascots, then more people get the chance.

    Then we can split into groups,

    The artists, the voicers, the video makers, the promotion team, the oto-ers.

    The artists will collaborate their designs, then the leader of the artist team will choose top designs and put it to the community to let them vote.

    The voicers have to discuss what type of voice to voice as depending on the design.
    Then they will choose a few people to voice act it, and those which are not selected, CAN be used as appends and such, so that their efforts will not be wasted. A few people can listen to the samples and then give critiques like which to change, how to change, and such. It is best if the voicer can voice crystal clear but if you want neutrality... i guess its okay to have some noise. Then we would broadcast the sample in the forums and get people to vote, which as appends, which as the core voicebanks.

    The oto-ers will then oto ini the banks, from the voicers team. The more professional one will do the oto ini, and the leader will do some cleaning up, to ensure perfection.

    The promotion team will promote the completed voicebanks throughout the forum and stuff.

    THen the video makers can do their thing and post on nico nico! :D



    So it would be systematic, and passing from one team, to another, and another. Everyone can take part :D Naturally the leaders would be the admins since they are in charge. What dyu think?
