• CD20 "About Us"



    Hello, Nynthixia here!

    Yeah there are 2 download links for this time. The first one is the album, the second is a bonus with Akari. No worries, not the same file as the other time.

    It's time for the changelog!

    Shatter (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Major supersaws now play during all choruses

    Just a minor dynamics change.

    ANILINIUM (feat. MAYU)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX during first downlifter adlib in intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified ending impact
    [MIXDOWN] Enhanced instru volume

    The "aaah" in the intro began quite abruptly in the demo. This was the major problem. Also the volume of this track was really low compared to other instrumentals. In a general view, the spectrum is still a bit less louder, but in the final mixdown, there should be less problems.

    Decades of Sorrow (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    [MIXDOWN] Lowered volume of intro synth and bells

    In some cases the intro was really too loud. And added a little VFX before the bridge.

    Eirpne (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    [EXTENSION] Added an extra intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed beats from second subpart of first verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified snare roll source
    [REMOVAL] Removed a part of the second bridge

    This one is quite weird. I first wanted to extend it. With all the changes that have been made, the length is the same, but the composition is really different. There are really some airs of "Me! Me! Me!" for this intro though... More than in the demo. *laughs* But since the story of "Eirpne" is also inspired a lot by this song. More hommage than ever.

    Kindness (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    [INSTRUMENT] VFX begins at beginning of sampled roll
    [MIXDOWN] Modified volume of VFX during final part
    [PATCH] Modified ending bells (Anti High-Frequencies)

    The demo got a warning for the ending, with a note that could have a heavy metallic resonnance at the end. I attenuated it in the album version. (Still be careful though I'd say)

    Roxane (feat. MAYU)
    [EXTENSION] Extended outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified ending impact

    I actually wanted to extend this one as well. And it got extended.

    Azalea (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    [EXTENSION] Extended outtro

    This brings an even sadder note to the song (which is actually a tragedy).

    Aurora (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    [INSTRUMENT] Articulated ending VFX with volume automations (0.8/0.6)

    Without the second repetition, the bridge sounded a bit empty. 

    ANTENOVAE (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified intro (now begins with fading in atmo+bridge + percloop)
    [INSTRUMENT] Octave raise for second verse bridge pluck

    No worries, in terms of high frequencies the music is harmless. Also modified the intro. Maybe it has attenuated the variations PoiZone tends to do with some atmos...



    Hope you will enjoy this album. And this is the transition to the season 4. The track "Decades of Sorrow" being from S04, same for "Natasha"... All the rest is season 3. The last ones of season 3.

    I aired all the demos for Momo today. "Disappearence" got aired few hours ago, don't hesitate to check. Also, please stay tuned on YouTube until beginning of June, something tells me an alternative version with a Vocaloid of "Remind me" should happen very soon...
    If you want to have an idea of the singer, well, I hesitated between IA and Yukari (the Lin VB). Answer soon.
    Or in the catalog if you are a real impatient, haha


    The next deadlines, for reminder: June 5th, 7th and 9th. "CLOTHORA" with GUMI first, then "Jump for Happiness" with Sayu, then "Selenium" with GUMI again (haha this title).
    And after, the deadlines are for mid/end of June. CD21 should contain tracks with GUMI (yeah, again), Tei, Itako and Akari at least. Not sure if Totoko and Kiritan will be in it (maybe?) or else it will be for CD21.5. I don't have tracklists written for the moment.
    And actually I'm going through a huge stress period until June... That may explain the current lyrics... Maybe?


    Other little things:
    - the cover/remix for June 9th will be... Maybe both, and you won't get the titles of the songs for now. I really want to keep the surprise (birthday presents, remember).
    - all the chibis are online (^_^)
    - there are no new plans for new Vocaloids right now. Neither for synths. Priorities are for the new Vegas version if they sell it this year (for the moment they update every year) and possibly updates for the current voicebanks.



    And that's all for the moment! Enjoy!
