Hey, I'm Myst/Katie. I'm a Vocaloid and UTAU user, Whovian, and virtual petsite artist with a particular affinity for the color blue.

I like anime/cartoons and manga/comics, certain radio-style fictional podcasts, drawing, writing, music, roleplaying, and video games.

I voiced the UTAU Kikyuune Aiko, and I do quite a lot of UTAU and Vocaloid work.

I'm currently finishing up a large video/art project that has a deadline in the next couple of days, and it's eaten into a lot of my commissions time.

Once this is finished however, I have a few things I'll be sending out right after.

(Please look forward to seeing what I've been working on once it's posted on Halloween, and sorry things are taking so danged long!)

Kikyuune Logo Tests by myst-saphyr
Kikyuune Logo Tests
Just playing around with some ideas. The triangle thingies might be navigation buttons on my new UTAU XYZ site, not sure yet. Probably gonna simplify those a little and take out the play/pause buttons.

So far I've got Hinomoto Oniko, Ritsu EVE, Nagareboshi Yue, Yamane Koko and Koharune Ami, but I'd like more!

I stumbled upon your UTAU Aiko recently on Youtube (drawn to it interestingly because I have a beloved pet chicken named Aiko) and wow! I really love what you've done with it and your art is absolutely amazing too! Sorry if I'm rambling, here but I was just talking to my friend the other day about using your own voice samples to make and UTAU and I guess that's exactly what you do and that's amazing. You have been inspiration! (Also Biohazard is ridiculously catchy…)

Aaaah thank you! I'm really happy to hear that you liked Aiko, and I hope you do go on to make an UTAU voicebank of your own, it's a super fun hobby!!

Thank you and I definitely will! I am a little nervous since I'm a new user but I fortunately have my recording equipment and all that stuff ready. (I read on the wiki Aiko was recorded in Garageband? I also have that too :D) Anyways thanks for replying! Keep being awesome! (Also would it be okay if I did any fan art of her?)

You might wanna use either Audacity or OREMO instead of Garageband. I first used Garageband but had to convert all the samples to work in UTAU since Garageband only does .mp3 or .aiff.

OREMO is software made SPECIFICALLY for recording UTAU voicebanks; it makes things a tooooon easier by allowing you to load "reclists" (recording lists) that let you go through sample by sample, and it auto-saves .wav files as you record to whatever folder you set it to. Also has background "guideBGM" music you can record to, so it feels more like singing rather than monotone chanting and keeps your tempo and pitch nice and consistent. This is what it looks like: freett.com/nwp8861/soft/oremo/…

Thing is, the Mac version of OREMO is a rather glitchy port of the PC version (doesn't cooperate with guideBGM), and it hasn't been updated in forever and a day, so I personally now use PC OREMO through Crossover ;m; You can use the Mac version fine as long as you don't try to use guideBGM, if you do it records your samples at double speed (?!) and you get a demon chipmunk for a voicebank.

If you need any help, let me know! I love teaching people UTAU and OREMO and stuff.

I always appreciate fanart of Aiko aaaah ;v; there's really no need to ask!!

It's been years since I last touched this account 0.o anywho..

I made a voicebank but since I can't type in hiragana on the oto can I use your oto on my UTAU strictly for the hiragana aliases? The entire things already oto-ed on a purely romaji oto, I'll just be copying the numbers over, so I'm not trying to copy your hard work but I want to make my UTAU more versatile/easier to use .-.

Also, would it be alright if I use your English voicebank/oto for reclist purposes? (and possibly copying the oto over if there's any symbols that I can't replicate; if there isn't any foreign symbols than ignore this last part)

Sorry for bothering you /.\
Keep up the good work!

I know I'm late. I just want to congratulate you on five years of Aiko!!
I've been listening to her new Biohazard original (for the 20th time now..) and it was really great. You guys did a great job on it.  It's really catchy.

I would've commented earlier but my Google+ is disconnected from my YT account so I can't comment there;;;

Anyway, happy late anniversary, Aiko!! You did a splendid job on her and the rest of your UTAU's.

How did you import Aiko's VB into Utau, I can't do that with my own VB...

Erm, how are you trying to use it in UTAU? Have you looked at any tutorials?

I need details of what you've tried and what you're having trouble with to help;;

(The voice folder should at least go into Program Files > UTAU > voice but there are some other things you have to do to make a proper working UTAU, including the oto.ini and frq files...)

A) the image won't load
B) ive searched up a lot of different tutoriald and none of them have helped. i think it may be because i haven't created the frq. (or whatever itsd called) files.

Image.....??? Like the little icon in the top right corner when you open a voicebank? (Or are you worried about the audio at all? You'll definitely need frqs and an oto.ini and you don't seem to know what those are...)

The image is an easy fix: the icon for your voicebank has to be 100 by 100 pixels and in .bmp format and in the voicebank folder, then you make a text file in the folder called character.txt and write "image=imagename.bmp" (without quotes, replacing imagename with the file name of your .bmp image)
