- VY1 and VY3 for V3 announced and will be released around the same time as the Editor
- New vocal library "坂本美雨 (Sakamoto Miu?) for V3" planned
- VocaListener will be released by YAMAHA as a plugin for V3

Crypton:
- No plan to release V3 library at the moment, but will be looking into it

Oversea order for Charity Miku

On April 8, GoodSmileCompany have opened up their online shop to everyone oversea to pre-order the charity/support version of their flagship nendoroid and our beloved diva, Hatsune Miku. You can find more information about the ordering process on shining_robots. 1000 yen from each sales will be donated to relief efforts.

...

Annnnnnnd here's Aki-shachou's posting of a picture showing accesses they've gotten on their order page from North America.



SonThe middle of US, I am disappoint.

C'mon, you know you want to buy her!









Japan earthquake

Yes yes I know this is totally the wrong place to write about it but still. As most of you should know by now, Japan was hit by the largest earthquake recorded in their history about 14 hours ago (as of this post), at the magnitude of 8.8 (or 8.9, depending on where you read). It's still going on right now. (Someone mentioned that the epicenter moved to Nagano a few moments ago but I'm not sure.)

Read more...Collapse )

#prayforjapan

Edit: Google spreadsheet of all vocaloid-related people that have posted on twitter or confirmed safe since the earthquake started:

Vocaloid/Nico related list

If you know of someone not already on the list and would like to help adding he/she in, leave a comment! If you would like to be an editor for the whole sheet in general, please make sure you can do the following and fire a request at asamidori and I'll add you as soon as possible.

1. You can read and write enough Japanese to tell what the person's name is in Japanese and their relationship to the vocaloid fandom.
2. You can type Japanese.

Optional: You have 1337 e-stalking powah.


Edit @ Mar 14 2011 19:21 EST

Since the post kinda become report log for the spreadsheet I've put some of the previous things here under a cut. Feels so messy otherwise.

Don't thank me for putting this list together, thank the editors who have spent their weekend to put this whole list together. Thank you guys! ;w; *bows*



MikuPa screenshots

Played with batch processing for a while and spent a lot of times deleting bad shots/writing up the list. Anyways, ~750 screenshots in a .rar generally at 800x483 resolution.

Here are some teasers, click to enlarge.




Do not, I repeat, do not redistribute this rar and any screenshots within it anywhere else without my permission. singing_robots gets to post it automatically but that's it. Stel/Floor! If you're gonna post this over on s_r attach this notice with it.

MikuPa.rar - 47.1 MB
Pass: Miku Miku in numbers

Edit: File uploaded. If it's not working yet come back in 10 or so minutes.



MikuPa song list

Long stuffCollapse )

I was busy screencapping the medley portion of the live so didn't get the names down, but it's mostly songs in previous DIVA games.

Speaking of screenies...



All for this concert, yes. :'D Now what to do with this folder...



According to Asahi's youtube channel, there was a rehearsal for the upcoming Mikupa on 3/9 (which will be streamed on Nico Nico for 15002000 yen... if you're up) and the song shown was wowaka's World's End Dancehall. Given how it worked last time, Dancehall's most likely gonna be in the next game that SEGA staffs have hinted in the pass. Anyways link to said video!

初音ミクライブのリハーサル

Someone record the live again for those poor people like me that need to go to work. >.>
