  • Hello, Nynthixia here

    "Chimerical" just aired few minutes ago. And that means I have 2 tracks of "Lethargic Chimeras" left to do: "Repent Myself" (Lily) and "Laurenzia" (Yukari). These tracks will be aired the 2 following days. On Wednesday -> album.

    I began making the tracklist for November, there 3 tracks for Zunko, Oniko, Sayu and Itako. The first track of the tracklist was the one being aired on yesterday, "Trianon". It was for Zunko's birthday.

    Then we have other deadlines for the others: Sayu has one on the 11th, Itako has one on the 14th and Oniko one on Thursday. Yup, this Thursday.

    Here is the schedule I'm going to apply for the upcoming week:

    Date Title Singer
    Monday (Oct 29th) Laurenzia Yuzuki Yukari
    Tuesday (Oct 30th) Repent Myself Lily
    Wednesday (Oct 31st) Sabbath Hinomoto Oniko
    Thursday (Nov 1st) Mnemosyne Hinomoto Oniko
    Friday (Nov 2nd) Purgatory Tohoku Zunko
    Saturday (Nov 3rd) And I Disobeyed You Yurika Sayu
    Sunday (Nov 4th) CALLIOPEIA Tohoku Itako

    Here is the full tracklist for November:

    CD23 - "Fourth Purgatory" - November 24th

    01. Trianon (feat. Tohoku Zunko) - deadline: October 27th
    02. Purgatory (feat. Tohoku Zunko) - to be aired on: November 2nd
    03. Caliadne (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    04. HEGEMONIA (feat. Hinomoto Oniko)
    05. Sabbath (feat. Hinomoto Oniko) - to be aired on: October 31st
    06. Mnemosyne (feat. Hinomoto Oniko) - deadline: November 1st
    07. And I Disobeyed You (feat. Yurika Sayu) - to be aired on: November 3rd
    08. IANTHIA (feat. Yurika Sayu)
    09. CELAIA (feat. Yurika Sayu) - deadline: November 11th
    10. Degeneration (feat. Tohoku Itako) - deadline: November 14th
    11. CALLIOPEIA (feat. Tohoku Itako) - to be aired on: November 4th
    12. I Don't Want To Know (feat. Tohoku Itako)


    There will be 2 weeks where 3 songs will be aired once back to the slow mode. The first week will be the one from November 5th to November 11th. You'll get the deadlined song for Sayu but also 2 other songs. I mainly target the Friday for working. The second one will be from November 12th to November 18th: one deadlined song with Itako, and 2 others.

    Let's just hope my health will go a bit better in the meanwhile... If ever it doesn't, there might be chances to move the album air date to November 30th, which would be a Friday... Not that great to be honest.


    Otherwise I don't have current cover plans right now. I keep in mind there will be "Monochrome" really soon... But it won't be before a long, long moment.


    The "Imitation" project: to be honest I couldn't work a lot on it because of "you know what"... But now there is just one thing left to do in terms of music. All the rest will be the booklet etc. I really hope to get this finished for the year's end.


    Also please do not forget France has changed its time compared to Japan. For midnight in Japan it will be 4 PM in France ; for midnight in France it will be 8 AM in Japan. Should be the last time, normally!



  • Hello, Nynthixia here.

    So I just published the cover of "MYS" only tonight. This is a cover that I have done back in June and that I wanted to publish in September. But as you may know, I got a bad organization and the publication has been delayed. So here it is. Late, but here it is.

    I'll also have to rearrange my schedules a bit for the upcoming weeks. Next week I'll still be on the same schedule (2 or 3 songs/week) before going into a week of "1 song/day". This will help me catch up some late.

    Also for this reason, I'll be obliged to delay the album air date from October 27th to October 31st (Wed). For the moment I still have 5 tracks of "Lethargic Chimeras" to make and that will require me more than until the 27th. If we count the fact that a song with Zunko has to be aired on the 27th, and that I almost reached (or I already reached, more like that, since I'm beginning to have health issues) the burnout state.

    (See now what I always say "never do like me"?)

    So this is what will be done:

    - I have at least 1 song to make this week, which will be chosen randomly between "Lethargic"/"Repent Myself"/"Chimerical"/"Laurenzia"/"KARNELA". I maybe will make a second one this weekend.
    - Next week, there will be a song with Zunko for the 27th which is in the November tracklist, that I haven't done yet... Completely. I just have the plan of the singers ready. Another track (maybe 2) from "Lethargic Chimeras" will be done next week.
    - The week after (the holidays week), at least one song of "Lethargic Chimeras" will be done (in priority). The album will be prepared the day after, along with the production of a new song. I'll try to advance as much as possible. All the rest of the week you'll get tracks of the November album.


    Another good news, happier this time, is for users of Sharpkey, CeVIO, Synth V... You are now able to use all of my songs officially, even if it is written in the tickets or the certificates that only UTAU and VOCALOID users can. There is no problem now. Enjoy covering! (^_^)

    And no worries for me, I'll get better soon.



    Hello, Nynthixia here.

    First, sorry for the lack of posting recently. Lots of work to do, and the fatigue really doesn't help either.

    To be honest... This album, I finished it few hours ago. I never have been so badly organized... >< But here it is, on time. Phew.

    Changelog incoming... Lots of minor changes mainly. To begin with, I remastered with Ozone 8 Elements all tracks that had been done before I acquired the plugin. All of them except for songs with MAYU and "Empress of Heart".

    Bleeding Laments (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [EXTENSION] Added reverse SFX at intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added filtered FX (+200 pitch, global) and SFX kick before first chorus
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment

    Same problem as "Judith", the intro was abrupt.

    Flavia (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bridge lead
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX and modified organization before last chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified arp pattern for bridge
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment
    [MIXDOWN] Modified intro organization

    Lots of modifications on it. I tried to postpone a bit the last chorus but didn't work so I left it as it was.

    MORPHINIUM (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment
    Same instru

    One of the tracks with the most minor changes. Well, when the song had to be done with Morphine in its integrity (at least for synths)...

    Xylia (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-)
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment
    [PATCH] Fixed capella pitch of some final notes
    Same instru

    And yeah... There was a mistake on notes. The song was really good but contained a mistake. Update to this version quickly...

    Insomniac (feat. Anna Nyui -vivid-)
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment
    Same instru

    Didn't change anything else, the song was already great.

    Veronica (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-)
    [EXTENSION] Extended and modified outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed some beats at beginning of last chorus
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment

    I extended it a bit, not too long unlike the two others.

    Kalonice (feat. kokone)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX before first verse and during second verse
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment

    I was wondering where the slight sung voices were coming from and it was from one of the SFX samples... So I added more... Just because it's so great.

    JILLENE (feat. kokone)
    [MIXDOWN] Applied Ozone Elements treatment
    Same instru

    Didn't know what to modify on this one, so I just remastered it, since I did it just before acquiring Ozone...

    Paranoid (feat. MAYU)
    [EXTENSION] Extended outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX uplifter before end

    More piano parts at the end!

    Tiffany (feat. MAYU)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed preset for verses lead (T-Force Alpha Plus)

    The pluck sounded slightly detuned while the other hard lead was sounding right with the capella.

    Rancor (feat. IA ROCKS)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added atmosphere sample until silent bridge part
    [INSTRUMENT] Added glass break SFX at beginning of second verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Added long wub during first verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Added short wub during second verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX kick at beginning of outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added vocal synth during second chorus

    These are lots of little changes, the difficulty was to keep the verses different enough from each other. I really wanted a ghostly atmosphere, different than in "Unseen".


    OK and the other news, hope this will forgive me from the lack of posting...


    1) The tracklist for October!

    With Ritsu at least. Zunko will be for the next one. And... Guess what? The album will also be aired for her birthday. I'll have to really, really well organize her birthday, since my next holidays happen on October 29th!

    CD22.5 - "Lethargic Chimeras" - 27th October 2018

    01. Azucena (feat. Lily)
    02. Lethargic (feat. Lily)
    03. Repent Myself (feat. Lily)
    04. Hail (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    05. Kana (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    06. Chimerical (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    07. Laurenzia (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    08. Equilibrium (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    09. KARNELA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    10. Jasmine (feat. Namine Ritsu) - deadline: October 12th
    11. XENYA (feat. Lily)
    12. Aiyana (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)

    As for November's tracklist, I don't have the track names, but I have the singers. You'll have Zunko, Itako, Oniko and Sayu who each have a deadline for the period (Zunko: Oct 27th; Itako: Nov 14th; Oniko: Nov 1st; Sayu: Nov 11th). And their album will be done faster than the October one, since I'll have a week at the end of October (the Halloween one <3) for doing 7 tracks in a row. Because I'm crazy. ^^
    Seriously don't do like me. For your sake!!!!

    2) The recent unlocks...

    Happened during two days, September 13th and 14th. On the 13th, I got Ozone 8 Elements. If you get some info about the recent promotions, you'll know how I acquired it... For free. Just by also acquiring a pack of presets for Vacuum (and gosh, its sounds are soooo good).
    On the 14th, I decided to also get Quadrant. To be honest, I first thought this was a synth. Aaaand... Yes and no. FL Studio recognizes it as a preset, but the thing comes with a lot of samples to modify and alterate with the plugin. But depending of the preset you set, Quadrant can act as an effect (distortion, delay...) or as a generator, creating a constant noise (yes, even when FL is not playing!), acting as a synth. For reduced price. A bit more than 4€.
    Yes the things from Glitchmachines are great. Very unusually for typical electro music like trance or dance... But it adds a little special touch. ^^

    3) The plans

    For the moment there is nothing special. Just still waiting for an upgrade of the singers I already have. I saw the VOCALOID5 engine stabilized itself a bit but I'll wait more because here... Using it now is not a necessity. It also has several backlashes that I already explained.

    4) "Imitation"

    Still in progress. No worries, it's just slowed down.

    5) And do you play CHARON games?

    I played "Vanilla's Referee Garden" three weeks ago (yes I bought it). It's... Very, very special. Typically, if I had to do songs on the game's theme (probably 3), the first story would be extremly censored, the second one is a bit unclear, and I didn't understand at all the third one. Yeah... Not before a while for the songs I guess.
    The second "Kimi to Boku" game won't have any song about it (like the first one didn't get one because... Um, well play it and you'll see why). Because I don't know what to do with a R18 game. Seriously. I'm very limited in the ratings. I can't do P-rated songs (pornographic, which are actually forbidden by several terms of use) and if I do E-rated (explicit) songs, I have to apply a lot of restrictions, including platform ones. So when a song gets such a rating... How to say I generally try to avoid the situation.
    (If you ask me if I got the game... The answer is "no". Same for "Paranoia", but not because of the rating)
    I'm aware about "Mihomi's Dream" as well. For this one... I guess it will also be a paid game but no problem, but it won't be available before October 10th. I keep my eyes on it. Yup, the game interests me.
    Same for the new game currently having a casting. Or... "Tsukimi's Return" (I'm not kidding)

    5) The covers/remixes

    Little reorganization on the covers. I have the one for "MYS" to post, using Yukari Lin. Will come before October 1st for sure. But after I'll change the pace and reduce it to "twice the year minimum", on 2 specific dates:
    - January 21st
    - June 9th
    (And you know why these ones)

    If there are any other covers, they will be posted randomly depending of the material available to me. But always on MQube. I'll always keep this rule.

    So no worries, the remixes and covers on sele's songs are not over... Just slowed down.


    And that's all for the moment. Enjoy!


  • "I'll annihilate all your hopes... Only a world of insanity, ashes and blood will remain."

    Hello, it's Nynthixia here and the "Annihilation" is here! And if you haven't seen the crossfade...


    Note: this album may not be suitable for people under 16 (not 14).


    Wow... So here we are. 42nd album. I'm really glad to air this on Lily's birthday. This made a quick decision on which tracks to do in private mode only for this album. Welp, for Lily's birthday, it's not a song, but three, yes, three new songs just for her.

    I'm sorry I haven't prepared an instrumental pack for these 3 tracks, this will be under request. If ever you need them, contact me or by the blog's page or on Twitter, which are the fastest ways.

    Since I haven't a lot of things to say now, because all the infos are in this blog post... Changelog time. Only "MANCENILLIUM" and "SINCUBUS" remain the same (and it's because of the latter one the album has the explicit rating, sorry).

    ILLANTHA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Altered intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified kick pattern in second verse
    [PATCH] Fixed false note in third lead pattern

    The false note thing could be really minor. I first fixed it in the capella of the demo, but there was still a weird impression at this moment of the song because of the lead. This shouldn't be the case anymore.

    Oceana (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [CAPELLA] Slight enhancement of volume for both tracks
    [INSTRUMENT] Added chord lead for verses (FM8)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX between bridge and last choruses

    The SFX is almost impossible to hear sadly, compression. I just enhanced the volume of the capellas that was a bit too low in specific conditions.

    Isolation (feat. CUL)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added atmo sample for third verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified kicks beginning for 2nd and 3rd verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified OHH pattern
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed impacts during non-vocal bridge
    [PATCH] Impact before last chorus now hits at the beginning of synth patterns

    The last one to be done, the one with the most changes... And there was a problem of measures.

    Faith (feat. CUL)
    [CAPELLA] Lowered volume of tri-harmonic capellas / chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Replaced some uplifters
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed some uplifters
    [MIXDOWN] Modified Phasis preset and reverb type for chorus capellas

    In specific conditions the phased part sounded a bit saturated. Now it more sounds filtered. Also the main uplifter in the demo was weird to hear everytime.

    Judith (feat. CUL)
    [INSTRUMENT] Ending sweeps have now an uplifter
    [PATCH] Intro is less abrupt

    The intro was the main problem of the demo and it was due to the beginning impact. Now it is smoother.

    Harajuku Freak (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-, -Hunter-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX at beginning of first verse and last chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Added supersaws pattern in second part of last bridge
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed beats components
    [SINGER] Added singer append (-Hunter-)

    Lilith VB only was a bit smothered compared to the music sometimes. Now we have a really strong voice and the ending part does not saturate. The beats were also a bit weird, now they are more discret.

    Carinthia (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    [CAPELLA] Lowered volume of capellas
    [EXTENSION] Extended outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added gongs at beginning of first and second chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Added snares and kicks in second chorus parts

    Exact reverse problem of "Harajuku Freak"! Here the voicebank was too loud, and I tried the Fairy VB first... But the quality of the Fairy VB is lower than the Lilith one for such reason... Also found weird the kicks and the snares were not present during the choruses.

    CHIASMATIC (feat. Lily)
    This is an unreleased song!

    "CHIASMATIC" is a psychological horror track in a glitched and numeric darkwave style. Longest track of the album but with a great beauty.

    Annihilation (feat. Lily)
    This is an unreleased song!

    In the spirit of "Re;BIRTH" and the songs have many similarities each other. There is still a difference which make them more mirrored than sister songs. Written thanks to censored bits of lyrics from "Carene" and "Black;Out".

    BETANY (feat. Lily)
    This is an unreleased song!

    Really clear and nice music for a serious topic about forced wedding and how it would affect a yandere... To the point she decides to break the fates of the two families for the sake of her own. (Yes she's insane)


    So enjoy listening the album! ^^

  • Hello, Nynthixia there.

    On yesterday, I published the crossfade for the album "Annihilation", its air date being on Saturday, but also on Lily's 8th birthday (already...). This album is for people being 16 and more, but for the crossfade I chose parts of the concerned song that weren't concerned by the explicit rating. There's still the warning at the beginning of the video though.

    If you want to have a look at the inedite tracks, it's here:

    This took me several hours to do this and I'll explain why later, but now, I have a tracklist to give, and sorry if it's coming only now, I also finished it yesterday evening.

    The September album will be called "Laments" and will be aired on September 29th 2018. The tracklist contains songs with Akari, MAYU (who have a deadlined song each), Nyui and kokone.

    CD22 - "Laments"

    01. Bleeding Laments (feat. Kizuna Akari) - air date: August 30th
    02. Flavia (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    03. MORPHINIUM (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    04. Xylia (feat. Anna Nyui)
    05. Insomniac (feat. Anna Nyui)
    06. Veronica (feat. Anna Nyui)
    07. Kalonice (feat. kokone)
    08. Empress of Heart (feat. kokone)
    09. JILLENE (feat. kokone)
    10. Paranoid (feat. MAYU) - air date: September 19th
    11. Cradle of Hatred (feat. MAYU)
    12. Tiffany (feat. MAYU)

    OK, got written? So let's go to the "secret project" info.

    The crossfade video is actually the 3rd clue to this project.

    Hint n°1: The fruit is maturing. - Hint given on the blog
    Hint n°2: Careful the red message. - Hint given in CD21's booklet
    Hint n°3: I.M.I.T video fragment - Hint given in CD21.5's crossfade

    For the voice, it's actually my voice, but with a lot of modifications: pitched up in Audacity, treated with Phasis and Fruity Love Philter, then by Nectar Elements (the legacy plugin, since I don't want to update to the new one seeming less intuitive for me)... And even for the tone itself I didn't take my usual one.

    For this one, you have at least the title of the project revealed, "Imitation". So now that you know it, I let you guess on what it could be, how it could be. I won't let you guess when because I don't have an idea myself. But no worries it is coming, slowly, but it is coming indeed. So keep an eye around in everything.

    Other news, the date for when I'll update VEGAS Pro to the v16 version is normally on August 27th. You'll be notified with a screen of the update request (with some parts censored such as private data), but more probably on Twitter. And the material lists will be updated as well. As for VOCALOID, I'm still waiting for an update of a voicebank I already have. Also, I see some messages about instabilities of the motor which don't really reassure me to be honest...



  • Hello, Nynthixia there, not from her home, but from a place where normally she doesn't have Internet so is using the phone data to write this blog post but doesn't care because doesn't use her phone much (oh well)

    (Sorry if it was a long intro)

    I won't give you any hint for the moment on the project I'm working since now... 4 months? But there are already 2 clues out of here, try already to get a possible message and a possible idea of what I'm doing.

    I don't know if I'll continue these types of blog posts but if it's the case, these may be on little things that, of course, have something to do with production, and that I want to talk about in public, without anything to fear.

    First, I wanted to say that I'm aware that Ritsu will maybe have a Sharpkey VB. I actually knew about the engine few months ago, and my first reaction, to be honest, was "This is so much the free Chinese Vocaloid".

    Seriously, if you are at ease with Vocaloid's UI, you'll know how to use Sharpkey. But more if you use Chinese VBs... Which is not my case. I know too little of Chinese compared to Japanese to make a song in Chinese.

    And if you're wondering "what would be a dream team of Chinese Vocaloids if I did Chinese songs": Xingchen, Qingxian and Xin Hua. And maybe Tianyi as well. The first three would be a bit respectively Yukari, Lily and or IA or MAYU.

    "You know there is a Japanese version of Xin Hua and Tianyi, why didn't you take them?"

    This is not a problem of interest, but... For the two girls there are different reasons. And no, this reason is not called "money".

    For Xin Hua, she's quite easy to get. I just want to see how much her Japanese voicebank (I don't have any fears for her Chinese voicebank) is durable and if she will be guaranteed to get updates for future engines. The Vocaloids for which I have the least fears for all the ones I have are the ones coming from Internet (especially GUMI, here, no doubt at all!) or AHS (who extended their support for V2 voicebanks that Yamaha doesn't want to support anymore). I'm less serene for MAYU or IA though (MAYU: don't know for an update; IA: risk of switching software (already told about it in the past)).

    For Tianyi... The ways to get her are really, really restrictive. Her Japanese website only ships to Japan. Taobao does not export DVDs and we have to use a forwarding service ( = more expensive and more difficult to use than a direct shipping) if ever we wanted to export something from this website. And there is no Amazon Japan entry (biggest market for Vocaloid physical software boxes).

    I actually have my eyes on Xin Hua though. Tianyi does not have that much priority compared to her. And since how long? A bit at the same time as I did for Akari.


    OK, coming back to Sharpkey. The engine is free and I already tested quite quickly some of the voicebanks that already exist. There is generally less noise for some of them (except Yuan Xiao, who has a lot!) and Huan Xiao Yi even reminded me Luka's voice! The voicebanks are very huge though: more than 1Go to download each. But maybe greater quality than an UTAU voicebank in general.
    So maybe someday, if some Japanese voicebanks for Sharpkey come out, I'll maybe test them. And if Ritsu gets his Skarpkey VB? No problem, I'll switch without any problem.

    Speaking of UTAU... Maybe you saw it in the top right corner, but I'm currently in restricted material mode. I have less restrictions than usual though. I found a way to move my virtual machine for rendering the UTAU voicebanks to my own computer (the other one used a different virtualization engine and is not a laptop). However I didn't migrate everything yet.

    I migrated these voicebanks:
    - Meiji: Hunter, Lilith, Fairy
    - Nyui: vivid
    - Itako
    - Kiritan: VCV and CVVC strong
    - Totoko: Hoppu (cute)
    - Sayu: one of the v2 VCV
    - Tei: last VCV voicebank (3.1)
    - Ritsu: Kire

    I didn't do these migrations yet:
    - Oniko: VCV and CVVC. Are in the download folder but not set into the virtual machine yet
    - Nyui: raw. Is in the download folder but not set into the virtual machine yet
    - Stella: ACT2 VCV+CV (requires a manipulation to make the voicebanks active at the same time) and 2018 VCV (not installed yet)
    - Momo: Cute, Passion. Are in the download folder but not set into the virtual machine yet

    Also the CVVC of Kiritan requires a manipulation as well (typically copy/paste and modify the copy of several lines).

    The straight VB of Momo, which is a CV, is rendered on my current computer directly.

    The hybrid attempt for Totoko due to corruptions of her archive is not migrated at all. Told about it in the past blog post as well.


    So typically I'm restricted for Oniko, Stella and Momo (except the straight VB) and half-restricted for Nyui. For now.


    This may be the last year I move Meiji's deadline of August 8th. This year I moved it to the 3rd with "SINCUBUS" (which got rated "Explicit" by the way...) but if I can continue like this, August 8th will remain a deadline like all the others. Also this week I won't post any song, since I'll work on the album-specific tracks. All are songs for Lily.

    So no worries if I don't set up publicly things, that doesn't mean I'm not working!

    I also may be a bit slowed down for answering questions. Expect more a 48h waiting time instead of 24h.


    That said, enjoy!


    Hello, Nynthixia here.

    Hint n°1: The fruit is maturing. - Hint given
    Hint n°2: Careful the red message. - See you in the booklet!

    OK, that was for the other project.


    And now... It's time for the changelog. Half of the tracks was modified, with less or more severe changes. If the track isn't listed, same as demo, you know the trick.

    Athame (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed centered crash at the beginning of rolls
    [INSTRUMENT] Added new intro lead (GMS)
    [LYRICS] New lyrics added during bridge

    I think you may have guessed the inspiration of this one, "Remember me" (sele). The thing is that I wanted to leave the bridge empty at first, but it sounded... Well, empty. So I filled it. I made it so it wouldn't be identical to the inspiration source though.

    Meredith (feat. Sukone Tei)
    [EXTENSION] Extended end with repeated chorus

    This song is good, but the outtro was... A bit expeditive? So I extended it, especially on the solo beats part.

    Edith (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed first lead instrument (Vacuum Pro -> GMS)
    [MIXDOWN] Redone micro-alignment of capella with instru

    To be honest, I didn't really like this track. Now, that's... Slightly better. Yeah, there are some times where you don't like your works.

    Tremere Rosae (feat. Kizuna Akari, Yuzuki Yukari)
    [GLOBAL] Total reorganization of the track
    [LYRICS] New lyrics added

    Ah this one... I had an alternative idea for the organization so I set it up. Yes, the song is shorter. Yes, the organization is totally different. But yes, I could include the Onn VB of Yukari for once in a song, hooray! One year after having bought the V4 upgrade... About time!

    SALENCIA (feat. Tohoku Itako)
    [CAPELLA] The ending note at the last chorus is now shorter
    [PATCH] Partially corrected an abrupt phoneme change

    The instru of this one didn't change. The problem with Itako, it's the second time I noticed that, if I input really really long notes, she tends to sound robotic, even with fresamp. So I shortened the last note.

    What About Now (feat. Tohoku Kiritan)
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified piano pattern
    [INSTRUMENT] Added semi-arp pattern to first verse

    Wanted to make clearer the notes where Kiritan was singing.

    MYRSENE (feat. GUMI)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bells pattern during choruses and second verse (M1)

    One of the most minor improvements of this album.

    Complex Choices (feat. Lily, GUMI)
    [EXTENSION] Extended end

    The song was a bit... Too short? But quite good enough though.




    For those who didn't read Twitter, I told a bit about VOCALOID5 and about the possible absence of a physical version of the engine itself. The thing is, when I get downloads versions, it's mainly because I don't really have the choice (case of Vegas and all the virtual synths/sound packages). But the priorities remain the same: Vegas will be upgraded first, then VOCALOID5. And I'm mainly waiting for a V5 upgrade that is in my interest.

    As for Totoko, I tried to repair the corruptions... I made tries when I was doing the album version. It's a big failure. Deformed notes, mainly because UTAU does adaptations based on the pitches. That means I can only use the Cute voicebank of Totoko for VCV (the CV is good but her vowels are a bit too strong and can make Totoko hard to understand, despite having an excellent sensibility for very short notes).

    Also, with the album versions, we got over the 1000 total works (original songs (demo and album versions) + transcendent transitions + remixes)! Already... (A bit more than 850 instru works under FL)


    And in case you're wondering if I'm suffering from heat... It's all the North part of the planet who's suffering. So, be extremely careful and take care of yourselves.

    Next work? "Harajuku Freak". Instru is done, ust files are done. I'll finish the song on tomorrow. Promised, after two songs with quite harsh/mature lyrics, this one will have a lighter ambience.

    Take care and enjoy!


  • Hello, Nynthixia here

    I just finished it but here it is, the tracklist for CD21.5, the tracklist for August, which will be a bit... Special. You'll better see what I mean.

    CD 21.5 "Annihilation"

    Air date: August 25th
    (the same date as Lily's birthday ^^)

    01. MANCENILLIUM (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    02. ILLANTHA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    03. Oceana (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    04. Isolation (feat. CUL)
    05. Faith (feat. CUL)
    06. Judith (feat. CUL) - Air date: August 16th 2018
    07. Harajuku Freak (feat. Gahata Meiji) - Air date: July 2018
    08. Carinthia (feat. Gahata Meiji) - Air date: July 2018
    09. SINCUBUS (feat. Gahata Meiji) - Air date: August 3rd 2018 (corresponds to August 8th deadline)
    10. CHIASMATIC (feat. Lily)
    11. Annihilation (feat. Lily)
    12. BETANY (feat. Lily)

    album-only tracks

    The album-only tracks will be produced between August 4th and August 11th.

    The deadline for Meiji (August 8th) is moved to August 3rd. I'm not sure about having a good Internet during the Aug 4th-11th week, so I rather publishing the song just before going out the home. Also, I'll be in material-restricted mode from August 4th to August 18th included. Which means no UTAU songs during this period. That's why I decided that Meiji's songs would be the first ones to be produced. Two in July, one at the right beginning of August.

    All the other songs (with Yukari or CUL, except for "Judith" which is deadlined) will be aired randomly, as soon as they will be done.



    Other info for organization for VOCALOID5 if ever I get the engine (because this will happen someday, it's just that I'm waiting a correct physical starter pack, more info here).

    1) The voicebanks

    I guess that in the starter pack there will just be the "normal" version, including the new standard vocals. Since I don't work with male vocals because their working method is a bit different (octave adaptation inter alia) and I don't know how to work with English correctly in VOCALOID, the only vocal I'd be able to use would be... Kaori. Though, I have very few interest for her. Maybe someday I'll learn to better love her, who knows? ^^ But I'm not sure to use her in songs (or maybe a "try"...).

    2) The compatibility patches

    VOCALOID5 projects are in .vpr format.

    If ever you need a file for VOCALOID4 (or VOCALOID3) when the file has been done under VOCALOID5 (how will you know if this is the case: I'll say it when I'll upgrade the engine and use it as default), please contact me first. The preparation of such files may take a while (at least 1h, after, depends of the complexity).

    3) XSY for VOCALOID5

    Other thing about V5, the engine does not support XSY. I actually used the feature in very, very specific conditions:
    - the singers have to be at least from the same company. Better if it's the same character. (In this case, it's V4 engine itself which creates these "hybrid" VBs)
    - no voicebanks that are totally opposed (example that I'll never use: whisper/strong VBs)
    - never XSY V3 and V4 together or 2 V3: they're not meant for that
    (By the way, can someone explain me why V4 auto-created a hybrid "Akari/Yukari V3"???)

    If you want some examples: I did a XSY Zunko V4/Yukari Jun for "Better than Nothing" as a shortcut. But the one I was using the most was the hybridization of Yukari Jun and Yukari Lin, permitting to get a stronger voice for Yukari but without being too high in pitch.

    Well this combination can't be done in V5... Which means I'll just have to do double tracks. You may just get a bit different results since it will be on separated tracks instead of cross-synthesis.


    So maybe see you later in the week for "Relic of Hope"!


  • Hello, Nynthixia here.

    This will maybe be the first blog news of this type but... If we told a bit about recent events?

    I know everyone is or stressed or hyped by the new VOCALOID generation... This was... Not really a surprise.

    Vocaloid5 has been announced yesterday by Yamaha, few hours after a leak of one AHS voicebank (hello Sora Haruno), with their 4 voicebanks and stuff, few days after they announced stopping the selling of 4 voicebanks, and to be honest, I was sure they wouldn't go for a "commercial suicide" (if we can talk about it this way).

    So... The upcoming of V5... For the moment I won't update, and the main reason is "I wait for a starter pack with one of the 9 Vocaloids I already have". I don't know which one may come out first, even if I think a bit about GUMI.

    I also don't have "taking Sora" in my plans for the moment.

    The thing that is worrying me the most is for IA. Personally I still wait for an update to V5, but if ever she was going to totally switch to CeVIO (in terms of Japanese voicebank), well, I will consider into taking a CeVIO engine as well... I'm still waiting for the moment.

    If ever one interesting starter pack goes out, this will go into the top priorities.


    VEGAS: the v16 will be out in few months and I'll update as soon as possible. This is the top one priority.


    The new plugins: last week I acquired Vacuum Pro, you already have some examples of use in "Complex Choices" (where the plugin does all synths) or "Corruption Syndrome" (the reverse atmosphere mainly).


    The pace is quite slow because of fatigue problems mainly... And also because for the moment I do many failures... I'm really sorry about that m(_ _)m


    So if you have to remember few things:

    1) VEGAS Pro 16 is the top one priority at the moment and will be updated as soon as possible.
    2) I won't take Sora, it's not in the "to-do list"
    3) I'll wait for a starter pack with one of the vocals I already have for updating to VOCALOID5 (if possible, physical package would be nice)
    4) The next cover is on September so no worries if I don't air one for this month and the next one
    5) On Monday I air a song with Kiritan
    6) Next album will feature at least Meiji and CUL. Maybe Lily too. No idea about the others, but it will probably be Vocaloids (since I'll be in "restricted material mode" for 2 weeks in August)
    7) I'm updating every UTAU into VCV, Ritsu's folder is already installed, I'll have to do tests with Oniko, and one with a "hybrid" voicebank of Totoko due to 5 severely corrupted archives (40/50 files per archive if you saw the tweet! [normal VCV (F4), Kire C5/A3/D4 have a few files corrupted, Kire F4 is just impossible to read, and no, it's not a hard drive problem]).
    (The "Hoppu" one is a sane file though, that's why I'm using it right now)


    Also, I will "pre-announce" it now... I'm working on another project since April, but hushhhhh... Wait a bit, wait a bit before the fruit matures well... ^^

    So if you were wondering these questions about V5, here you get your answers. So, wait and see.
    And don't forget to enjoy


  • CD20.5 "Happiness Disappearence"


    Hello, Nynthixia here!

    Little album with Momo, GUMI, Akari and Sayu! I finished the album quite late because of fatigue, but the most important part is that it's here.

    Changelog time, as usual!

    Antheia (feat. Momone Momo -straight-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed strings during first arp bridge
    [INSTRUMENT] Crash source changed
    [INSTRUMENT] Crash is now playing at each impact

    Jump for Happiness (feat. Yurika Sayu)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed arp pad (V-Station -> Hybrid)
    The arp pad in the demo was a bit out of sync at some moments. The new one is maybe less clear, but more in phase.

    Passion Reaper (feat. Yurika Sayu)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added supersaw during bridge (Xpand!2)
    [MIXDOWN] Modified volume of bell pads
    Note: the phase of the pad may have changed a bit, due to rendering.
    I also enhanced a bit the dynamics in the bridge.

    STEFANIA (feat. GUMI)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX during chorus
    [MIXDOWN] Remastered and centered panning of VFX
    Note: I noticed that there are some instruments that are not centered, especially the gated pad. Try the song with headphones.

    Selenium (feat. GUMI)
    [PATCH] Corrected issue of volume ending for gated pad and lead
    Do you want to know a funny thing? The demo instrumental was actually abnormally long due to the gated pad repeating itself and itself. On a computer, almost impossible to detect it and I noticed it during the second test on the mp3 player. And for the demo, on the computer, I decided to shorten a bit the end. Big mistake... Now I repaired this into FL itself. Instru and song have the same length (if we exclude the mp3 treatment "latency"). And the song is ending normally!

    After;Math (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    [EXTENSION] Added bridge before pitch change
    [MIXDOWN] Lowered atmo volume (0.9 -> 0.7)
    [REMOVAL] Removed first intro part
    The song is actually the same length almost. I set the atmo a bit too high in the demo. The purpose of this atmo was to make the song less empty.

    Remind me (feat. Momone Momo -Passion-)
    [EXTENSION] Extended end
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX series at outtro
    [INSTRUMENT] Second outtro part has no arp pad pattern
    Which makes this song the longest of the album (more than 5 minutes!).


    Other news. On Thursday, piapro opened again for European Union! Which means, able to access its data correctly! And the PV is online since Friday afternoon. Go check it please!
    (Well with the changelog you may have guessed that the PV uses the demo instrumental)


    I won't be on the computer on July 7th (reason: Japan Expo, the only exposition I go every year). So if you want to contact me, better do it another day than this one... ^^" Or wait a little bit.

    The next deadlines, approaching very fast: Sunday you'll have "Ingrid" with Itako and on Tuesday "MYRSENE" with GUMI, for the birthdays of both these girls! I'm not sure about a midnight airing, but you know it, if it's not online at midnight it will be here later in the day (French time of course, so that means if after 5 PM I publish the song I'm still in the good hours even if it's the next day in Japan).


    Enjoy the album and the PV, and see you on Sunday then for Itako's song

  • Hello, Nynthixia there!

    I'm quite tired for the moment, but I'm still standing. So I have little info about covers for the next months and a new tracklist.

    The covers:

    The covers for July and August are cancelled (yeah I did triple upload for June instead, for special occasion). They will resume on September, one week before the album airing date for the concerned month, and it will be "MYS" with Yukari Lin. Since the time I wanted to cover this song... And if you want to know what delayed this cover so much... Problems of repro build. Impossible to replicate some effects until the new tries few weeks ago.
    Like usual, it will be on MQube.


    And now... The tracklist!
    This will be tight because there are some chances that I begin this tracklist before I finish the other one. But here are the other tracks that will follow and the air dates that are already scheduled, the deadlines.
    Too much deadlines in June!!!

    CD21 - "Corruption Syndrome"
    Air date: July 28th 2018 (Sat.)

    01. Corruption Syndrome (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    02. Athame (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    03. Amanda (feat. Sukone Tei) - June 19th
    04. Meredith (feat. Sukone Tei)
    05. Psycho Paths (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    06. Edith (feat. Shirahane Totoko) - July 10th
    07. Tremere Rosae (feat. Kizuna Akari, Yuzuki Yukari)
    08. Ingrid (feat. Tohoku Itako) - June 24th
    09. SALENCIA (feat. Tohoku Itako)
    10. What About Now (feat. Tohoku Kiritan) - July 16th
    11. A Beautiful Day (feat. Tohoku Kiritan)
    12. Florence (feat. Kizuna Akari)
    13. MYRSENE (feat. GUMI) - June 26th
    14. Relic of Hope (feat. GUMI)
    15. Complex Choices (feat. Lily, GUMI)

    So I'll try my very best! ><
    Also, I have the confirmation that for the last week of June I'll be under the "between 3 and 6 songs per week" schedule. Studies are over for me until September officially.
    I'm not very sure about the schedule for the upcoming year, but if needed I'll adapt myself.


    Speaking of deadlines by the way... The second deadline for Akari is August 30th. For me that's quite great news since she is very late compared to the other regular singers, now she will be at the same level as others... ^^ The date has been written on the song automatic deadlines document, where you'll find every deadline for each main and regular UTAU/Vocaloid I use.

    Next ones on the list?
    Meiji, CUL, Lily and Akari all have deadlines in August. So... Keep an eye on it!

    Enjoy and take care!

  • Hello, Nynthixia here

    Very quick news while uploading a song to just give you two little informations.

    The first one is about the work pace for next weeks. I'll go back to "between 3 and 6 songs per week" on June 4th. The songs for next week will be at least on the 5th ("CLOTHORA"), 7th ("Jump for Happiness") and 9th ("Selenium") (+ bonuses for the 9th, MQube only).

    Now you got it, there is a little problem with the PV of "Remind me". I need access to data on piapro (mainly for some credits) to properly upload the PV. The problem is that... The society behind piapro (yup, the guys behind Miku, from Crypton) have closed their website accesses to all countries in European Union (including France, where I live) because they are not up to date with the new European law (GDPR). And it's like this since Friday.
    So the PV will be delayed to an unknown date before June 23rd (album deadline).

    I don't know when Crypton will open their websites to everyone again, I hope soon, but in this case, please avoid contacting me with piapro, I won't be able to go on the website for a little moment...

    Also if I wanted to upload some Akari's stuff on piapro, well, I got stuck.

    OK, so enjoy the new song "Fallen" with the VCV version of Sayu. Only great stuff! <3




    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!

  • Hello, Nynthixia there.

    No, this is not a joke. Today is the day when Image-Line (the really nice guys between FL Studio) posted the first release candidate of FL Studio 20. And for those who are wondering "why FL 20 when the previous version was FL 12"... It's typically because now the number of version of FL = the number of years the company exists.
    And also because 13 is the death number for some Occidental people, but hush...

    Little note: I only use frequently for producing release candidates and release versions, because I know they're stable enough. I also download betas, but just for checking things, being used to the new features etc. And hopefully I did it for FL 20...

    So, I told you when FL 20 would be here, the third season of songs would stop and we would go on to the fourth one. Hooray! This has been... Almost two years this third season exists. Seriously, the season 3 began at the end of June 2016. So yeah, you still add one month and a half and we would be in this season for 2 years.

    Typically... The changes between S03/S04 will be very minor compared to the ones between S02/S03 and, most of all, between S01/S02 (where I totally changed the DAW, and hopefully!).

    However, in terms of tags, there will be a few changes.

    - Songs using Transistor Bass and Fruity Delay 3
    These two plugins, the first one is an instrument, the second one an effect, both exclusive to FL, are only available since v12.x of FLS. Which means, in former versions of FL (down to FL9, this is the oldest version that I can unlock), these two plugins can't be used. When I was working with FL12, the songs would be tagged as "No compatibility patch", with often an indication of the exact build used.
    In FL20, there will still be a tag, but this time, unless another plugin gets added in FL20.x and gets exclusive to FL (no VST version), this tag will be "Limited compatibility patch" with infos of the "big versions" of FL that can have this patch. In this case, imagine I make a song using Fruity Delay 3 in FL20. The song will be tagged "Limited compatibility patch", and will be able to get a patch for FL12, but not for FL11, FL10 or FL9.

    - Metadata
    FL automatically fills a line by itself when rendering a file (instrus files, some remixes, covers), saying that the encoding has been done with FL 20 instead of FL 12. So you know what you should expect in terms of compatibility.


    - Pages on the blog
    After "Shatter" will be released (the song has been done yesterday, so it's still in S03 but it will be the last one), I'll finish to fill the lite version of the table for S03 and will open a page for S04.


    Else, what S03 was able to bring to songs:
    - several FL plugins: Harmor and Harmless were the first ones, then PoiZone, Toxic Biohazard and Morphine, then Transistor Bass, finally, Sakura and Sawer
    - non-FL instrument plugins: M1, Hybrid, V-Station, Xpand!2, FM8 are the most major ones
    - better quality in lyrics (new patches, yay)
    - I learnt how to sidechain during S03 (yes, that late)
    - new music styles (such as dubstep)
    - GUMI, Zunko, CUL, MAYU and now Akari made their first debuts in my songs during S03 (yeah for Akari I know, "ANTENOVAE" is actually a test for her, now serious things -> S04)



    The next songs? You'll get "Shatter" on Thursday, the last S03 song. The songs that will come after this are "Decades of Sorrow" with Totoko and "Natasha" with Zunko.
    After this, we begin the 40th album's demos... (Already...)


    I'll be in "limited material status" until the end of the week, that's why I made Meiji's songs quite before this week. And remember I'll use Akari a lot for the moment.

    So, "farewell S03 and welcome S04"... I'll try my very best ><

  • So, here we are... I guess? Hello, it's Nynthixia here, and something very special just arrived at my home this afternoon.

    Akari's package!

    This is quite a long story that I won't tell here, because if I was at home on Saturday I'd get her on Saturday. But now, here she is! Welcome home Akari~


    OK well... First I wanted to thank all my family because it's thanks to them the package is here.
    And thanks everyone for supporting the songs.


    Now, second part of this blog post (this will be very long)...

    - the next song will feature Akari, and you'll get two other songs this week: "GRETARIA" with MAYU on May 6th, then "Kindness" with Zunko on May 8th. And the week after, you'll get a song with Meiji, "Shatter", on May 10th. So yeah, lots of work to do.

    - I modify the tracklist of the album being in production and I add Akari's song at the end of this tracklist. The title will be revealed and the tracklist updated when the song will be out.

    - For the June album ("Happiness Disappearence"), all songs that would have CUL as vocals will have Akari as vocals instead. It's just that Akari has to get at least... 12 songs to be at the same level as others? No worries, CUL will be in the album after and in the September album thanks to a deadline date (August 16th). This will be updated as soon as possible (if not done yet!).

    - The May cover will be "Remember me" with Akari (instru by feli), as for its date... Maybe the Saturday before the album (keep an eye open around May 19th?). As for June's thing... Won't tell it, you'll know it on June 9th! Maybe a remix? A cover? Both? Don't know!
    Something tells me that Akari may be involved in this birthday present though... But won't say more, else it's not funny

    - If you saw it, you saw that little chibis are coming on this blog. This is still a WIP though, I didn't do the chibis of the UTAUs I don't use anymore (Aika, Midori, Hachi (these 3: I don't use them anymore at all), Sana and Ruko (not using them for the moment because I don't manipulate them very well so that's why I set their using status as "occasional")).
    (So typically for those who want to know, these are chibis inspired from the little chibis of Danganronpa... But I made them for each VOCALOID/UTAU that is used on this blog... Or almost, if you read above. Plus, they're cute.)


    Forgot something. Akari's uses for songs have been updated on the table. Globally, I'll try to avoid severe yandere themes for her (may still be possible, but you know she won't be my first choice for this lyrics type) but OK for the others. We get the same characteristics of use as Yukari. And she is on regular singers list. Even if you'll very often see her for a little moment!


    - Last thing, very important!
    The same error that had been detected on "Maeva" a month ago was also detected on "Hidden" (album "Truth Garden") and on "BELICIA" (album "Babylon"). You can download their patches here (Hidden) and here (BELICIA). Replace the former vers with these ones if you downloaded these albums!



    ... When I said there was a lot to say, wasn't kidding.
    So, enjoy, and see you soon!


    (Warning: this album is not recommended for people under 16 (instead of under 14))

    Hello, Nynthixia there!

    So here it is, the "Memento Mori" album... This one has lots of changes. Here is the complete changelog for each track!

    Lullaby for Mother (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-, -vivid-)
    [CAPELLA] Octave raise on final part
    [CAPELLA] Final part is now under effects
    [INSTRUMENT] Added reverbed snares at the second intro part
    [MIXDOWN] Modified second atmo scratching during final bridge

    For the snares and the effect on the voice, it was more for dynamics. As for the pitch raise for the final part, it's to more fit with the actual instru sequence.
    For reminder: this song has the raw and vivid vocals at the same time.
    And it's the song being under the "16 years" age limit.

    Gone Too Early (feat. Anna Nyui -vivid-)
    [CAPELLA] Modifying abrupt pitch changes due to pitch curves for CHO capella

    I didn't change the instru, but I told about patching a bit the capella for abrupt pitch issues in the choruses.

    The Unloved One (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-)
    [PATCH] Modified remastering of intro atmo to fix saturation (Anti-Saturation)

    The mastering in the demo for the first atmo sample was the cause of an ugly saturation.
    Also, the pitch issues seem to be attenuated in this version but I didn't do any direct changes...

    Napea (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Intro first part now plays arp pad instead of sidechained choirs
    [INSTRUMENT] Outtro now plays piano instead of sidechained choirs
    [INSTRUMENT] Piano now plays during choruses
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX before final song impact

    I'll be honest, the demo was pretty messy and out of beat sometimes. This should be less the case.

    INDUNIA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [EXTENSION] Extended intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added sidechained sweep (3xOSC)

    More dynamics with sweep.

    Blame Yourself (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [EXTENSION] Extended intro with new pattern

    Silence (feat. Sukone Tei)
    [CAPELLA] Changed voicebank (Sukone Tei 3.1 CV (former) / Sukone Tei 3.1.1 VCV (current))
    [PATCH] Corrected cut between reverse vocal and impact

    The capella change was done on all Tei's songs.
    As for the unnatural cut of the samples, it's fixed now.

    FRANZESCA (feat. Sukone Tei)
    [CAPELLA] Changed voicebank (Sukone Tei 3.1 CV (former) / Sukone Tei 3.1.1 VCV (current))
    [MIXDOWN] Fixed filter cutoff low thresholds of arp to avoid fades on/off

    If I set the low threshold at 0, the pluck became silent. Now you hear it all the long!

    Do Not Dare (feat. Sukone Tei)
    [CAPELLA] Changed voicebank (Sukone Tei 3.1 CV (former) / Sukone Tei 3.1.1 VCV (current))
    [INSTRUMENT] Added impact at the middle of second verse

    Added a bit more dynamics, but that's a mild change compared to some other songs.

    Memento Mori (feat. Lily)
    [EXTENSION] Extended final bridge
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed pluck pattern at the intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Harmor arp pattern now plays during the whole final vocal part
    [MIXDOWN] Deactivated reverb sub-effect of post-Nectar Elements treatment for bridge parts

    For the intro, it's to more fit the actual TV version (don't ask for it, private track) of this song, which didn't include the Sytrus pluck at the beginning and started with the atmo.
    (Note: OST type song, some restrictions have been set for this track, ref to Terms of Use)


    At the end of April I'll air a cover of "Lience" with IA ROCKS on MQube. The cover/remix for May hasn't been chosen yet.

    And as for Akari, I'm just waiting for the opportunity to ask a shipment for her, that will come very soon. Finally a release date!
    For me I think it won't be before mid-May (the time the package gets out of Japan, I'll have to wait at least for one week)

    For the albums, Akari will have lots of songs which will be done in June and July mainly.


    As for the lyrics I write for other producers, they will soon be posted here in French and Spanish as well.
    - for French and Spanish, I give official lyrics, so please only use these ones. Same for English.
    - For other unsupported languages (all that is not French, English, Japanese and Spanish), if you want to translate the lyrics, please use the English text, which is the original file. Not Japanese! (As for French and Spanish these will be adaptations so little changes possibly...)
    This will be written soon on the terms of use, no worries.


    Enjoy well the album!


    Hello, Nynthixia there!

    The timelapse between this album and the next one will maybe be a bit short... I still hope you'll enjoy both of them anyways. Changelog time!

    Moon Dust (feat. kokone)
    [EXTENSION] Extended intro, added SFX
    [INSTRUMENT] Added roll in last bridge
    Especially for the roll where the bridge was weird without it...

    IRISANDRA (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bells A pattern at intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bells B pattern (M1) playing after first beat measures
    [MIXDOWN] Slight volume enhancement on both capellas
    The original sounded quite empty, now you have more bells!

    White Sleep (feat. Hoshine Stella)
    [CAPELLA] Capella fades in with filter automation instead of volume automation
    [CAPELLA] Final sentences have now a delay
    [INFO: COMPATIBILITY] Project is not compatible anymore with versions of FL below 12.5.1 b165
    [MIXDOWN] Global remastering for sequence pads equilibration
    I wanted to make the delays for the demo and delayed them (ha ha) for the album. Also on some devices there was a problem of equilibrium between the volumes of the different instruments. Same for the beginning of the capella where the first words were impossible to hear.

    Dear Bunnies (feat. Tohoku Kiritan)
    [CAPELLA] Double remastering and reverb lowering
    Kiritan should sound a bit clearer now. Especially when I'm working on the VCV which is a quite soft voice compared to the other versions.

    Former Memories (feat. Tohoku Kiritan)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed atmo preset (Morphine)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed sequence pad preset (FM8)
    I had difficulties to find a good atmosphere for the song when I made the demo. So I did a few changes.

    Re;Venge (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added Slayer patterns

    Forget What I Said (feat. kokone)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added sidechained VFX for full intro and choruses
    Last chorus sounded empty compared to the other ones.

    NADEGIA (feat. kokone)
    [MIXDOWN] Modified final fade out
    The final fade out in the demo was very, very long. Too long.


    OK some announces to make now!

    1) the cover.

    Moving it to 2 on April due to a lack of time. The schedule is actually tight currently because of the reduced time (I usually have 4 or 5 weeks to do everything, here it was a bit less). The songs will be:
    - "December 9th" with GUMI (beginning of April)
    - "Lience" with IA (I may modify the original instru though...) (end of April)

    2) advancement on "Memento Mori"

    If you saw the discography page, I think you may have seen that the album has a fixed rating, "Explicit". It's due to the first song. When you'll get it on March 30th, you'll maybe understand. I tried to make it softer but... The idea was still there.
    Typically it's because one sentence has a reference to possible children torture... Ouch.

    So this song of course is done since few days ago, and you'll get it on next Friday. But keep in mind it will be more limited in terms of publishing (age limits mandatory, explicit warnings etc).

    3) tracklists for April and May

    Because yeah there are two of them. I had to adapt myself with the different deadlines, because May and June have quite a lot of them. With December, these are the heaviest months.

    I confirm that the CD20 will feature:
    - Meiji
    - Zunko
    - MAYU
    - Totoko (only one who doesn't have a deadline in this period!)

    CD20.5 will feature:
    - GUMI
    - Momo
    - Sayu
    - CUL

    So Itako is for CD21. With the math, apparently CD20.5 demos will be finished at beginning/mid-June. Here are the two tracklists (there is no indication for Meiji's appends, it's normal).

    CD20 "About Us"  - AIR DATE: MAY 28TH

    01. Shatter (feat. Gahata Meiji) - for May 10th
    02. About Us (feat. Gahata Meiji)
    03. GRETARIA (feat. MAYU) - for May 6th
    04. ANILINIUM (feat. MAYU)
    05. Decades of Sorrow (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    06. Eirpne (feat. Shirahane Totoko)
    07. Kindness (feat. Tohoku Zunko) - for May 8th
    08. Natasha (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    09. Roxane (feat. MAYU)
    10. Voodoo Daughter (feat. Gahata Meiji)
    11. Azalea (feat. Tohoku Zunko)
    12. Aurora (feat. Tohoku Zunko)


    CD20.5 "Happiness Disappearence" - AIR DATE: JUNE 23RD

    01. Antheia (feat. Momone Momo)
    02. Disappearence (feat. Momone Momo) - for May 22nd
    03. Jump for Happiness (feat. Yurika Sayu) - for June 7th
    04. Passion Reaper (feat. Yurika Sayu)
    05. STEFANIA (feat. GUMI)
    06. Selenium (feat. GUMI) - for June 9th (the reason? Don't see yet...?)
    07. Melpomene (feat. CUL)
    08. After;Math (feat. CUL)
    09. CLOTHORA (feat. GUMI) - for June 5th
    10. Remind Me (feat. Momone Momo)
    11. Zurine (feat. CUL)
    12. Fallen (feat. Yurika Sayu)


    For Momo I didn't indicate it but it may be the straight F4 VB, as usual.


    3) a patch... Coming very very late

    For the ones who have downloaded the album "Maidens of the Horrors", an error is present on the track "Maeva". A patched version of the track along with its certificate is available just here.
    The bug is a problem of repeating instru due to treatments in Vegas, and since this happened on the last track and that the silence at the end became total... Very difficult to notice!
    I'll try to do in sort this doesn't happen anymore in future tracks...


    So enjoy!


  • Hello, Nynthixia there!

    So all the demos for the album "Vengeful and Graceful" are now out, and just before I begin to do the album versions, I'll give you the tracklist for the April album! This one will feature Nyui (as promised), Lily, Yukari and Tei (poor Tei, she doesn't have so much songs...). And of course, in this tracklist there is the famous song I wanted to do about the Huntress from DBD. So here is the tracklist, this is what awaits you next week and until this gets done:

    CD19.5 - "Memento Mori" - April 14th 2018

    01. Lullaby For Mother (feat. Anna Nyui) - will be aired on March 30th
    02. Gone Too Early (feat. Anna Nyui)
    03. The Unloved One (feat. Anna Nyui) - will be aired on April 5th
    04. Napea (feat. Anna Nyui)
    05. INDUNIA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    06. Blame Yourself (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    07. Silence (feat. Sukone Tei)
    08. FRANZESCA (feat. Sukone Tei)
    09. Do Not Dare (feat. Sukone Tei)
    10. Myriam (feat. Anna Nyui)
    11. Eliane (feat. Lily)
    12. Memento Mori (feat. Lily)

    Got it for the Huntress song? Yeah, first track.

    Yeah for the date I can't really set it after because on April 21st and 28th I won't be at home and I'll be very limited on my material (no possiblity to work with VCV VBs especially). That means I have to work quite quickly and efficiently (at least 3 per week).

    The reason why I didn't set the name of Nyui's appends is because I don't know which one will be the best. But if you still want to have a range of the possibilities, it may be or the vivid voicebank that I love a lot, or the raw voicebank which is the most recent one.
    And if ever there is an interesting voicebank being aired on Nyui's birthday... Who knows?

    As for other voicebanks:

    - Zunko: she has a deadline fixed on May 8th. She will maybe be featured in CD20.
    - MAYU: next deadline on May 6th. She will be featured in CD20 like Zunko.
    - Meiji: next deadline on May 10th. Or CD20 or CD20.5 I still have to calculate this.
    - Momo: deadline on May 22nd, more probabilities for CD20.5.
    - Sayu: same as Momo, CD20.5. Her next deadline is on June 7th.
    - GUMI: CD20.5, 2 deadlines in June (5th and 26th).
    - Itako: next deadline on June 24th. Probably CD20.5.

    From April 21st to April 28th: I'll work only with VOCALOID voicebanks or with CV UTAU voicebanks (so not the following ones: Nyui, Itako, Kiritan, Stella ; very few possibilities for Meiji because it is music-dependant).

    On June 9th it's sure there will be a cover. As for this month this may be a remix, but I'll maybe post it way later than usual. I'm still thinking about it. The place, as usual, will be on MQube.


    For material, still the same, Akari is on the wishlist, now I have to wait for the VOCALOID voicebank!

    Have fun!

  • CD18.5 "Unseen"


    Hello, Nynthixia there!

    And here is the album "Unseen". I got some pleasant surprises when I made the music tests. So I hope you'll enjoy this album a lot!

    Changelog time!

    Carene (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)

    [INSTRUMENT] Added bass pluck (Mikro Prism)

    I found out that the song sounded quite empty. Hence the adding of the bass.

    Muriel (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)

    [EXTENSION] Extended bridge between first chorus and second verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Added sup arp piano notes during second verse and first vocal bridge
    [PATCH] Corrected capella volumes (Anti Saturation treatment)

    And the only song with Meiji in this album which doesn't use VCV (I tried VCV for the song, she sounded really detached). So it stayed with the original CV capella. Also this version having a little trouble of volume when remastered, I corrected it for the album.

    Aithnea (feat. IA)

    [EXTENSION] Extended outtro
    [MIXDOWN] Remastered arp bells pattern

    The arp modification is maybe the slightest one.

    Lost Innocence (feat. IA)

    [CAPELLA] Added "la la la" part during first chorus
    [EXTENSION] Intro now begins with SFX

    I noticed that on the first chorus, IA can sound a bit detached. And on the second chorus she sounded more than correct. Now this should be better!

    Tara (feat. Namine Ritsu)

    [MIXDOWN] Remastered capella (second NE treatment)

    For Ritsu, it's the reverse problem of Meiji. His voice is a bit soft but sounding really human for me and that's why I always kept it.

    Bloody Infection (feat. IA)

    [INSTRUMENT] Added snareclap in other measures including GM beats
    [INSTRUMENT] Added growl synth during second chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX before second verse

    Just for dynamics. Nothing else.

    Necessary Judgement (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)

    [MIXDOWN] Remastered capella

    With the VCV version. And the music was sometimes too loud in some cases. Corrected.


    The tracklist for March will be given to you at the end of next week. As for the song "Petulantia", yes, I switched the place with "White Sleep". So, just saying... "Petulantia" is with Lily, and I tried to do dubstep. Um... Unless you know how to configure her correctly on the dynamic level, this is maybe not a good idea. But hey, I think you'll have a good surprise. This will be aired later in the morning (near 11 AM maybe? (French time))


    The plans for a cover on March are not determined yet, when I'll get an idea, I'll tell it in a blog post.


    See you later...

  • Hello, Nynthixia there!

    So, the last demo of "Unseen" being aired (a bit earlier than I thought (thanks the snow...)), I can now announce the tracklist which includes the song for Stella that you got on Monday morning.

    And this one will have a weird organization... Here is the CD19 tracklist, "Vengeful and Graceful" (the title was revealed in the blog post of the song "JIULETA"), airing date: March 24th 2018.

    01. Moon Dust (feat. kokone) - will be aired on February 14th - deadline schedule
    02. Rafaela (feat. Tohoku Kiritan) - will be aired on February 26th
    03. IRISANDRA (feat. Lily) - will be aired on February 28th
    04. White Sleep (feat. Hoshine Stella) - possible air date: February 24th or 25th March 2nd
    05. Dear Bunnies (feat. Tohoku Kiritan) - will be aired on February 13th - deadline schedule
    06. Former Memories (feat. Tohoku Kiritan) - will be aired on March 1st
    07. Petulantia (feat. Lily) - will be aired on March 2nd February 24th
    08. Re;Venge (feat. Lily) - will be aired on February 22nd - deadline schedule
    09. Sand of Time (feat. Hoshine Stella) - will be aired on March 4th
    10. JIULETA (feat. Hoshine Stella) has been aired on February 5th - deadline schedule
    11. Forget What I Said (feat. kokone) - will be aired on February 27th
    12. NADEGIA (feat. kokone) - will be aired on March 3rd

    So I wrote all the dates of airing that have been fixed. The ones in yellow are the deadline ones, the blue ones are the holidays scheduled ones. Also this means that for the 2 upcoming weeks (and the current one) I'll be airing only 2 songs each week, before switching to the fastest pace on the Feb 26th-Mar 4th week.

    For reminder: no cover this month. This will come back on March, probably the Saturday before the album airing.


    EDIT of February 18th 1:23 AM


    Hello, Nynthixia there!

    And here is the second January album! The first one featured CUL, Yukari, Lily, IA, Oniko and Stella. The second one is with Lily, Yukari, MAYU, GUMI and Tei.

    Here is the changelog:

    Death Seeker (feat. MAYU)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bridge chords during choruses and before first chorus

    SILVENA (feat. MAYU)
    [EXTENSION] Extended end with modification

    Arlena (feat. GUMI)
    [PATCH] Corrected a case of abrupt end for first riser

    What You Deserve (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added pluck during verse 1
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bells during choruses and last intro part
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified bells placement in outtro

    Linda (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added impact before ending part and at middle of final intro part
    [INSTRUMENT] Added second beats pattern in second part of final intro part

    Asylum of Dreams (feat. GUMI)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added crash roll and impact before last chorus and at middle of last chorus

    MADALENA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Bridge pattern now also plays during choruses

    MAELISSA (feat. MAYU)
    [MIXDOWN] Raised volume of gated pad
    [MIXDOWN] Modified trance gate pattern
    [PATCH] Added sweeps at intro to repair synchronization problem

    Enemy Mine (feat. MAYU, Sukone Tei)
    [PATCH] Fixed saturation of after-chorus parts (AS* program)
    Same LIC code

    * Anti-Saturation


    I have 2 more songs to air this week. The first one will come this morning, it's "Aithnea" with IA. Why this morning and not at midnight? Even if I finished the song on Thursday (I was so much motivated for this one that I couldn't resist) I rathered letting some time for the album and then the song would come next, without having any penalty for any country. If I did it on the afternoon it would be aired on the 28th for Japanese people for example. Time differences really make this hard.

    As for the MQube incident on last Sunday it's repaired. The thing that happened is that when I tried to upload the remix to MQube I got stuck with a server error (= MQube down) so I decided to upload it on Soundcloud until MQube gets online again. So now everything is back to normal.

    Little dates to remember:

    Later on this day: "Aithnea" (IA)
    January 28th: one of the remaining demos to do for "Unseen"
    February 5th, February 13th, February 14th, February 22nd: deadlines for songs of March album (Stella/Kiritan/kokone/Lily)

    No cover on February, since the "Blood Error" remix replaced it. They will return in March.

    Ah and Nyui will appear in the April album. She already has 2 scheduled songs on March 30th and April 5th, and I have an idea for one song for her. (ref to the post of the song "Unseen", with Yukari as vocals).


    So enjoy this album and see you later in the morning (French time of course) for a song with IA!


  • CD17.5


    Hello, Nynthixia there.

    I don't need to tell many things tonight. Most of the recent news are resumed right here, so don't hesitate to check it out.

    This is the changelog for this album!

    Emma (feat. CUL)
    [EXTENSION] Added second bridge between second chorus and second verse
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed beats manipulation

    This song has actually 2 demos: one for the blog (the very first one, the one you can really qualify as a demo), and one for YouTube (which is half-way between blog demo and album version). I just finished the modifications for the album version, and extended a bridge part, which I wanted to do for the album version only, even if I had this idea in my head since a long time ago.

    Gaelle (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)

    I only did this modification to make more clear that this song is the sister song of "Emma".

    Calumnies (feat. Yuzuki Yukari, Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Modified pattern sequence in bridges

    The sequence pattern has 3 versions: one with the notes separated, another one with the notes being a bit more linked each other and the last one with a little addition touch. And that's this last one I added in the bridges for this version!

    Psycho Liar (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Coupled bells to the existant bridge pattern (M1)
    [MIXDOWN] Enhanced volume of FM8 bells

    Because I wanted to change the bells but I couldn't find anything else sounding good.

    JOZEFINA (feat. CUL)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX at 2° chorus and 3° chorus

    I hesitated to do it for the demo version, really. And I told myself, "nah, would be for the album".

    Letha (feat. Hinomoto Oniko)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added riser before each chorus and verse

    This song was already great, but I just added some dynamics by adding the riser at some other strategic points. Enjoy!

    Shining Shrine (feat. Hinomoto Oniko)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added bells pattern during choruses

    For this one, the change is very, very subtle, especially when the capella is on. But I assure you: yes, I added these bells!


    So, next surprise. Remix on MQube. I really enjoyed doing this. I worked on it a big part of Thursday evening. And it turned out to be quite great. I hope you won't be disappointed.
    Won't reveal the track name before tomorrow though... Let's keep up the fun until the end, OK?



  • Hello, Nynthixia there.

    This was actually online on the 2018 discography page since Sunday but I now announce it officially there, CD18.5 tracklist!

    03. Altered Reality (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    04. Muriel (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    05. Aithnea (feat. IA -ROCKS-)
    06. Lost Innocence (feat. IA -ROCKS-)
    07. Threatening Thread (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    08. Tara (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    09. CARMINILLA (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    10. Bloody Infection (feat. IA -ROCKS-)
    11. Necessary Judgement (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    12. DIMPHNE (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)

    The scheduled songs are:
    - "Unseen" for January 24th
    - "Aithnea" for January 27th (yup, the same day as the album "Death Seeker")

    All the others, "as soon as it's done".

    Also for next week, I hesitated between using the fastest or the moderate pace for working on production. Normally I should go with the tightest one since all my week will be free... But because of my global fatigue, I think I have to reduce it to "between 3 and 6 songs a week" exceptionnally. I don't really want to force myself or else I know this will end badly. I'll still try to do 4 for next week, to advance a bit on the tracklist.

    The week after this, back to the slowest pace, but maybe with 3 songs.


    And for Lily, Kiritan, Stella and kokone?
    No worries, they are for CD19. The demos may be produced at the same time as the ones of the CD18.5, especially for Stella's song (Feb 5th is the deadline). For reminder, deadlines:
    - Feb 5th -> Stella
    - Feb 13th -> Kiritan
    - Feb 14th -> kokone
    - Feb 22nd -> Lily

    As for Nyui, she's not forgotten since she will have lots of tracks for March and April. I really enjoy working with her (especially vivid VB) so it's not today I'm going to stop!
    After as for technical reasons... I just have to be at my own home to work with her. But same goes with Itako anyway.

    Last thing. Remix on MQube on January 21st. And I can't fail this one. This replaces February cover (and of course on March I do the same as usual). I won't reveal the name of the song I'm going to remix until you see it though. Nobody has to see it.
    Until the day...


    Please enjoy

  • Hello, Nynthixia there.

    Just in case, I published "Death Seeker" (the song, not the album, not yet) just there. This will be the last song of 2017. Well, this is. Now this is aired.

    So, there won't be lots of news, just a little modification that I'll explain on a schedule. No big worries.

    First, I wanted to say "happy new year" (even if we're not in 2018 yet, and still I have 8 hours late compared to Japan). I'm quite glad to be here. There was some evolution in the work, going from the V3 engine to the V4, there was no new vocal acquired on 2017, but you know that next year, well, Akari... You know all of this, right?

    So few info now.

    - "R.a.w." became an OST. Which means there may be some conditions for reprint (ref to Terms of use)

    - S04 will begin probably not before February from what I understood. If you remember well, S04 will be open when FL20 will be officially released. For the moment we still have some betas. And I'm not really working on betas. This season may be the one with the less clear transition of all. The S01/S02 was pretty clear, the S02/S03 still quite clear. The S03/S04... I already made a big transition when I acquired FM8, V-Station and Hybrid, where the style changed a bit.

    - The cover of February is cancelled.
    Actually it will be moved to January 21st [Sun.] (the day after the airing of the album "Dying Rule"), and it may not be a cover but a remix. I won't tell more about this remix, but it will be MQube exclusive. And I really, really have to do my best for this one.

    - A new sheet is available. This will give you the automatic deadlines for some songs using main and regular vocals. I also included Akari in the list.
    If there is a mistake in the dates please tell me so I can correct!

    - And I think that's it. A little tab for next week schedule is available here. (bottom of the post)
    Which means on tomorrow you get the yandere duet song!
    Midnight airing for this song will not be possible. Expect more an afternoon/evening airing.

    Enjoy! And big thanks for this year! Thanks for the support on some songs such as "Bird in Cage", and some others... This makes me really glad... And it's thanks to you I want to continue.
    So... Thanks!!!

  • CD17 "Break-Out"

    So, see you on MQube on this weekend, and on the blog for Oniko's birthday song!
    I'll try my best, promise ><


  • Hello, Nynthixia there!

    There are few changes for the air dates of an album and a cover, the ones for January. And the cause is the pace for the weeks of December 25th/December 31st and January 1st/January 7th.

    There is enough place to fit a whole album in it. Next week I'll try to air 3 songs ("Abandoned" with Stella and 2 others, maybe a song with IA and another one with CUL). Then the week after, you'll have the another song with IA and the Yukari/CUL duet. At the end of the post anyways, you'll get a schedule of all originals and covers that will be aired for the next periods.

    So, why in title of this blog post I didn't talk at all about an album announcement? Because all the demos for this album will be produced during the fast period! Except for December 25th, it still will be a track from the album "Dying Rule" : "Shining Shrine".

    So this is the tracklist that will be produced. Please note this album will be the one airing on JANUARY 27TH. "Dying Rule" is being shifted to JANUARY 20TH, and the cover for "ALETHEA" (with or MAYU or CUL, haven't decided yet) will be for JANUARY 13TH.

    Soooo that's it for now! See you on tomorrow for Stella's birthday song!

  • Hello, Nynthixia there!


    It's been almost a month since there was no message in the news. But I have lots of news to share now. The album airing, the reveals for the covers of December and January, the tracklist of the album that will be aired on January, and some new little "DAW food".

    I assume this expression.

    Here is the changelog of "Babylon". But before, I wanted to thank you a lot for "Bird in Cage". The song was composed for Zunko's birthday and it became one of the most popular songs. Views counter on piapro exploded, and all the little nice comments...
    Thank you everyone!

    (The songs being the same as their demos (and it included Zunko's song) are not indicated in the changelog. Same as usual)

    01. BELICIA (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed intro pattern constitution
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX before last chorus

    Maybe one of the songs that has been the most heavily changed in this album. I just added a bit more dynamics and modified the intro. Quite funny to call the song "BELICIA" when it has some beautiful bells to begin with. Haha.

    03. Blindness (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [EXTENSION] End extended and modified
    [LYRICS] Added lyrics (R3 + R4) at the end

    The new lyrics in English and in French are included in the zip file, the Japanese ones are on the booklet. I thought the song was a bit too short so I extended it with new lyrics!

    05. Lyra (feat. Tohoku Kiritan)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX at the end of uplifters
    [INSTRUMENT] Added impact at the beginning of last chorus

    To be honest, when I composed the demo, few hours later I had some new ideas. "OK it will be for the album" so here it is.

    08. Christine (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    [INSTRUMENT] Slayer now plays all the song but the intro
    [MIXDOWN] Compressor added in final mixdown
    [PATTERN] Slayer pattern at the outtro has changed

    I had difficulties with the Slayer and the demo sounded quite weird with the demo Slayer ending. I changed it so it sounds a bit more correct.

    09. Denial (feat. Namine Ritsu)
    [EXTENSION] Extended intro and outtro

    Basic extension, even if the song doesn't have the same beginning.

    12. Babylon (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX before bridges

    I added a few more dynamics. But no way I extend this song that is already very, very long (almost 6 minutes...).


    Next: the January album!

    It will be aired... On January 27th. On IA's birthday. But there are some IA's songs in it and there will be an IA solo song that will be aired (you won't have this name until next month though). Some of the tracks are scheduled.

    CD17.5 - Dying Rule

    01. Dying Rule (feat. CUL, Yuzuki Yukari) - WILL BE AIRED ON DECEMBER 22ND 2017
    02. Emma (feat. CUL)
    03. Gaelle (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    04. Calumnies (feat. Yuzuki Yukari, Lily)
    05. Psycho Liar (feat. Lily)
    06. JOZEFINA (feat. CUL)
    07. Abandoned (feat. Hoshine Stella) - WILL BE AIRED ON DECEMBER 11TH 2017
    08. FANIA (feat. Hoshine Stella)
    09. Letha (feat. Hinomoto Oniko)
    10. Shining Shrine (feat. Hinomoto Oniko) - WILL BE AIRED ON DECEMBER 25TH 2017
    11. Toxic Romance (feat. IA -ROCKS-) - WILL BE AIRED ON DECEMBER 20TH
    12. Anemone (feat. IA -ROCKS-)

    So, remember when I said I would do a duet Yukari/CUL? Now this is the confirmation, there will be one!
    Also, little info, the song "Psycho Liar" will be the first to be aired, at the time I'm writing this, its instru is already done.

    Talking about instrus, let's talk about music plugins.
    I got not one, not two, but three plugins!

    That's what I meant by "DAW food"...

    These are the names:
    - FM8
    - V-Station
    - Hybrid 3

    Ah and FM8 is featured a lot in "Psycho Liar" ^^
    Actually all the synths in this song are FM8 except for a lead made with GMS, that's all I'm going to say!

    (Thanks the Black Friday for the ridiculous prices)


    And next, the covers. I have to delay a little bit the "CARLA" one, but these are the names of the two sele's songs I'll cover the 2 next months:
    - On December 16th: "Tears for Dear" with CUL
    - On January 20th: "ALETHEA" with or MAYU or IA -ROCKS-
    Both will be on MQube only, so be sure to check it out sometime!
    (Both of the covers use non official instrus but their quality is really really good no worries)

    And of course if sele airs a song with its instru, this song becomes prioritary on the list, delaying some others to the months after.

    Info on songs seasons now.

    The season 3 of songs will stop when I'll get FL Studio 20 (there's no FL13 just in case you're wondering!).
    Just because the third season is getting a bit too long (since June 2016).
    WARNING: Songs using Fruity Delay 3 and/or Transistor Bass and that will be produced within FL Studio 20 will only be eligible to compatibility patches with FL 12.5.1, but not with former versions of FL, and will be marked as "Restricted compatibility patch".


    As for the work paces, the fastest pace will be applied for the weeks December 25th/December 31st and January 1st/January 7th. But I can't give any schedule for them right now (except for the 25th) since it will depend of how fast I'll advance on the January tracklist.
    There may be a third week of fast pace at the end of January, but I'll wait some confirmations on my side.

    As an ending word, congrats to Zunko's team for Itako's Voiceroid, they reached the goal within a couple of minutes.
    She's really good as an UTAU, and I'm sure the users of Voiceroid will enjoy her a lot.

    Again, thanks a lot and hope you'll enjoy these musics! <3

  • Hello, Nynthixia there!

    Before beginning with the schedule, I wanted to say a huge, very huge thanks to everyone. The last song with Zunko, "Bird in Cage", has also been introduced by official piapro's Twitter account. It was hard to believe, but this makes me so happy and it really gives me a huge amount of motivation. Thanks everyone!!!

    I have so many things to tell you, if you knew...

    First, the work pace and schedule for next week. This is what I said in the previous news (when I aired "Maidens of the Horrors" (CD16)):

    1) I may do the fastest pace but I'd have to advance many works for Monday and Tuesday
    2) I do the fastest pace, but the song that was scheduled for Tuesday would be aired or on the Monday or on the Wednesday depending of how it goes
    3) I do the medium pace, and actually it would be a "6 songs a week" pace, with the Tuesday without anything

    The reason why I had to write down these choices was because I'd normally have some school classes on the Tuesday evening. I learnt on Wednesday that these classes were cancelled. This means, next week I'm on holidays (for school of course, not for production, you know me way well now).

    So the pace for next week will be a song everyday. No day shifts.

    And since I was at the very end of doing the demos for the album "Babylon"... I had to do a new tracklist. The CD17 will be called "Break-Out", and will be aired as an album on December 23rd!

    On this weekend, I'll produce "Lyra" with Kiritan. It should be aired on Sunday. This leaves the song "Christine" with Ritsu, which will be made on October 30th.

    This is the tracklist, and since some tracks are already scheduled to other dates, I decided to reveal the ones for the other tracks in the meanwhile (at least the ones for next week):

    CD17 - Break-Out

    01. Ornella (feat. Tohoku Itako) AIR DATE: NOV 14TH (near midnight? (Paris time))
    02. Corina (feat. Tohoku Itako)
    03. Heloise (feat. GUMI) AIR DATE: NOV 1ST
    04. ELZEFINA (feat. IA) AIR DATE: NOV 4TH
    05. Break-Out (feat. Lily)
    06. MALCINE (feat. Lily) AIR DATE: NOV 5TH
    07. Daydreamer (feat. Yurika Sayu) AIR DATE: NOV 11TH
    08. CORALYNA (feat. Yurika Sayu)
    09. Chains and Saws (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    10. R.a.w. -Repair a world- (feat. Yuzuki Yukari) AIR DATE: NOV 3RD
    11. Not Anymore (feat. Momone Momo -straight-) AIR DATE: NOV 2ND
    12. Back Spin (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-) AIR DATE: OCT 31ST


    So this makes (with all the other works included) this schedule:

    October 29th: "Lyra" (Kiritan)
    October 30th: "Christine" (Ritsu)
    October 31st: "Back Spin" (Meiji)
    November 1st: "Heloise" (GUMI)
    November 2nd: "Not Anymore" (Momo)
    November 3rd: "R.a.w. -Repair a world-" (Yukari)
    November 4th: "ELZEFINA" (IA)
    November 5th: "MALCINE" (Lily)
    November 11th: "Daydreamer" (Sayu)
    November 14th: "Ornella" (Itako)
    November 18th: cover of "Segments Blue" (IA) [MQube only]
    November 25th: airing of the album "Babylon"

    Everything's written? Good!

    Also, please don't forget for the time shift between Japan and France! From October 29th, when it's midnight in France, it will be 8 AM in Japan (when it's midnight in Japan, it will be 4 PM in France).

    And for December works? You'll at least have IA, Stella, Oniko, CUL and Yukari (I'm thinking about a plan to make these two last ones sing together, I'm sure between the voice of CUL and Yukari's -Lin- voicebank, we can obtain a wonderful thing!).

    (Reminder for dates: IA will have a song on Dec 20th, Stella on Dec 11th, Oniko on Dec 25th and Yukari and CUL are both for Dec 22nd!)

    One last thing, the uploads on piapro may stop... Due to upload limit again. I'm almost at 99 files, the limit I previously reached. One complete set for a song or 2 instrus and this limit will be reached again. But no worries, the rest will be on fichier-zip as always!

    Please enjoy! And again: thanks for all the support!


  • CD16 - "Maidens of the Horrors"


    Hello, Nynthixia there!

    Title that quite fits with Halloween's month! There's a bit of everything: yangires, yanderes, some sort of horror stories...

    (Ah and no song for all audiences, sorry)

    Changelog time!

    01. Anais (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    [CAPELLA] Modified vibrato of 3 notes in C2 parts

    Slight correction for enhancing the quality.

    02. HAZELNE (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed synth presets (Toxic Biohazard (x2) -> M1 (x2))
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed snare roll type at middle of C2 part
    [INSTRUMENT] Roll+SFX at middle of C1 part

    Maybe one of the songs that has been the most heavily modified. I didn't really like what I did with Toxic Biohazard at first, and when I did this, I didn't own the M1 yet.

    03. Curse of the Magnolias (feat. Gahata Meiji -Lilith-)
    [EXTENSION] Added bridges between after each first type of verse (Toxic Biohazard)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed intro preset (Toxic Biohazard)

    Same for this one, it was the intro that... Seemed weird to me.

    05. Daralis (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added crash rolls
    [INSTRUMENT] Added SFX at beginning of last chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed SFX in outtro

    The dynamics have been enhanced a bit. And the ending is not weird anymore.

    06. Haunted Reflection (feat. Lily)
    [INSTRUMENT] Removed kicks in second bridge
    [MIXDOWN] Global remastering
    [PATTERN] Changed pattern for intro

    I had a problem between making a longer intro with repetitive patterns. Finally found the way to fix this.

    08. ENJELE (feat. MAYU)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added lead bridge at the end
    [INSTRUMENT] Toxic Biohazard pluck has been raised by one octave
    [MIXDOWN] Raised volume of chorus lead

    Slight changes.

    09. Ginevra (feat. Anna Nyui -raw-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Changed supersaw patterns
    [INSTRUMENT] Supersaw now plays at the end

    Some parts were also weird for me in the demo, and when I made it I thought "I have to modify this for the album". Quality a bit enhanced.

    11. Down to Hell (feat. Anna Nyui -vivid-)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added pluck at bridges and last chorus (Sytrus)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX at the end
    [MIXDOWN] Application of the new volume measures for VEGAS Pro 15.0 build 177
    [MIXDOWN] Lowered chorus capella (-0.5dB)

    For the general mixdown this was the song with the less troubles. But I wanted to add some dynamics to it as well.

    12. Maeva (feat. Yuzuki Yukari)
    [INSTRUMENT] Added VFX and kicks in the second part of the intro
    [INSTRUMENT] Added perc loop at roll at the penultimate chorus
    [INSTRUMENT] Added ending SFX
    [MIXDOWN] Application of the new volume measures for VEGAS Pro 15.0 build 177
    [PATTERN] Changed ending atmo/pad pattern for bridge and at the end of the intro

    In terms of volumes, this song was the most problematic one. Made it less repetitive at some parts as well.


    Sooooo what happened with this build of VEGAS Pro actually? The pan controls had been changed for the first build of the v15, so this was the explanation for the -3dB volume when I used the manipulations that I had to do in previous versions (and that I can use now in the current build of VEGAS Pro!). That was not that bad for Meiji though, who had a very strong voice.

    Next songs to be aired will be "BELICIA" then "On Both Edges", on this weekend. Between the computer maintenance and the fatigue, I had some difficulties to work on musics and lyrics. So no worries, this will come soon. Zunko's song is on next Thursday for reminder.

    Next cover will normally be on November 18th. Yeah, a week before the album airing, again. The next one on the list is "Segments Blue" with IA. (MQube only)

    The work paces for the 2 next weeks... The next week it's the same as the current one, but the week of Halloween... There are 3 possibilities due to a little problem on my side:

    1) I may do the fastest pace but I'd have to advance many works for Monday and Tuesday
    2) I do the fastest pace, but the song that was scheduled for Tuesday would be aired or on the Monday or on the Wednesday depending of how it goes
    3) I do the medium pace, and actually it would be a "6 songs a week" pace, with the Tuesday without anything

    I invite you to keep an eye on the "Work pace" corner at the top of the right menu.


    Tracklist of November : I'm still working on it and it's not ready yet. I'll try to give that to you at the end of the next week. Along with the schedule for the week of October 30th-November 5th. Be sure that Sayu and Itako are confirmed for this tracklist though, and they will both have scheduled songs (on the 11th for Sayu, on the 14th for Itako (this one will come very late in the night though!)).
