If you do, it would actually be really helpful.
So, many people (including me) are trying to find the old Masa song 'Interface', and I've heard that Internet Archive's Wayback Machine can help so people can download the songs that were deleted, but they need to have an account from before the song was deleted on the website it was posted on. In this case, 3/9/2011. If anyone has a Niconico account from early 2011, you could be a great help to the people who want the song. If you could download it and post the audio on here, that would be wonderful.
Here is the link to download the song: https://web.archive.org/web/20180220175746/http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm13822734
MASA FANS UNITE!!
Edit: and if the account if from 2/11/2011 or earlier that would be better because then the old song Wakare wa Iwazu ni Icchimae! can be downloaded as well
I'm asking this because my account is from this year
Ok so today was bring an instrument to school today and so I brought my mini keyboard on Koto mode and I learned the instrumental of Kitsune no Yomeiri and I wanted to play it with the original song (the remake, not the original original or the remix) and so my teacher asks 'is it school appropriate' and I'm like 'well no one in here knows Japanese so they won't understand the lyrics but don't show the video' and so that happens but I can't hear the song very well so I pause a lot and soon enough the whole class is just listening to Kitsune no Yomeiri play on the smartboard and then my teacher pauses and shows the part with Akari holding her mask and some random dude asks 'who the heck is that' and I'm like 'that's Akari' and he's like 'who's Akari' and I'm like 'oh my God'
This is how crazy my life is
there was this one song i was ABSOLUTELY in love with that i haven't listened to in a long time. i just remembered it today and wanted to listen to it, but i completely forgot the title.
the song had a sort of chill, jazz feel to it, and the video was just a picture of a girl through the window of a car at night, and in the reflection of the window you can see city lights and i think there were some raindrops too. it had some animation in it (not any moving faces or anything like that, but you could see lights passing by in the window). it was sung by luka. and i may or may not be remembering this part correctly, so don't rely on it too much, but i think there may or may not have been rap-ish parts in it as well. they weren't fast or anything, but it sounded more like a chill rap than singing. in fact i think it ended with one. again, i'm not sure how accurate that observation is, but a part of me is telling me that was in the song.
anyone that helps me find this song, you're a total life saver. i really hope to listen to this song again as it used to be one of my favorites.
Koe ga umereru
Kimi no nakade
A concept I drew... Hope you like it!
I'm not sure what all to say here but i hope to make some friends here ^w^
GUYS I JUST FOUND OUT I HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY AS GUMI'S VOICE PROVIDER I-
It is a big coincidence when you find out that Megpoid English was the first voice bank I got for the Vocaloid software, OMG...
I’ve been listening to KAITO V1 and KAITO V3. Their really different sounding. Why is that? V1 KAITO sounds so similar to Gackpoid V2, I can’t easily tell them apart, whereas V3 KAITO and V4 Gackpoid sound very different.
This is understandable... Right????
I need feedback if its not clear from you guys as XSY for added expression is a bit complicated compared to the just "lets just use two voices to make a new one".
If there is anything you feel could be better worded or I need to further explain, let me know.

I'm getting Masa's albums and his livestream playlists.
Besides CATRINA, there's a livestream where he reveals his voice aaaa
So recently I've made two major updates;
*Nana just has a note added to her V3 voicebank about her English
*VY1v4 had some corrected information.
I'm going to say it... Of those two the latter one is a bit more concern. So I'm just going to explain it here.
Until 2018 we had a nasty little forum that used to throw a hissy fit if we didn't agree with them. The result was that a lot of its members would auto-discredit us if they didn't agree with their opinions. This was getting better and better over time due to the departure of the more bias veterans, but even in the end the levels of toxicness kinda was there.
So, one of the things to be aware of is anything pre-2018 written... Is subject to being written under stress. We still get criticism but its not as focused in one place as it once was and its kinda scattered.
I'm going to go over things this year and double check stuff thats older then 2019 for a reason. I think it was last year I updated the XSY page to talk about some of the flaws of XSY, some of this was difficult to write about due to having some problems explaining things.
XSY got hit by the old problems of that era and we're still paying for it now. Basically, everyone would focus on the main thing they valued over something, like XSY was the ability to make a new vocal from two different ones. But the shiness of the idea meant the original concept which was to act as a TRANSITION between two vocals got missed. In 2019 I fixed up the page to correct this, but had I done this in 2016, there would have been a backlash and that forum may have gone "You don't know what yours talking about" as they did to me over EVEC + Luka.
I think there was only a few things I got wrong about XSY and EVEC but... Its long been fixed and sorted. ^_^
The west created a lot of the misinformation I hate to say it that other westerners thought was true. >_<
Again, I kinda point to the biggest example was the old "Japanesse versus English" debate of V2, it took me years to sort out how wrong that was and English wasn't "less realistic". As I said on Discord, within 2 days of me writing "Len doesn't produce satisifactory masculine results...." in light of VY2's development, I got someone questioning it on the forum. Even though I sourced it.
The forum kinda made me for a number of years not have much confidence in myself over trying to write stuff that conflicted ith what the fandom said, so I apologise for that.
Anyway, I'm going to work on correcting at least rthe XSY stuff on each page... *le sigh* I mostly wanted to talk about this since a lot of the problems with "early versus now" of the wiki have been brought up in "Discussions" in recent months. So I thought I'd just explain, drop an apology and a "I'm working on it" note before I begin so everyone knows whats up.
(Edit: Quick note, the forum was like "yaya we can use X vocal and Y vocal to make Z new vocal" and they didn't even realise that XSY was originally made to transistion between vocals... This was common and they just focused on the new vocals thing which drowned out the information until I manage to find it in 2019 on XSY again).
The criticism towards the wiki still goes on (Anyone who knows about the criticism on our Act2 page knows my reaction to some criticism last year is 'You've got to prove its wrong as this has been confirmed its correct for 8 years now'). Its hard to prove something is wrong, and I appricate it when it is proven wrong.
The wiki is, and always will be, a WIP and is only as accurate as the available infomration we have at any given time. That changes at literally any moment. :-O

Remember Seraphim On The Ring? It might seem nice, however I might have remembered something. While I was watching it for the second time, I said "That seems familiar, but I can't put my finger on it." Watching it more, everything came together. A year ago or so, I found a weird anime, that included 2 girls. One of the girls kind of looked like Twilight Sparkle but more human. And then they turned into these angel things. What was the anime called? I am desperately wanting to know lol-
I really like V Singer, and I’m trying to pronounce their names right, but I could use a little help. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Luo Tianyi, Lou-Oh Tea-on-yi
Yuezheng Longya, You-ez-hang Low-ng-ya

Is Uni pronouns You-ni? Or Uuni?
And Seeu, is it See you? Or Say Ohh?
I basically use Japanese pronunciations for Chinese and Korean.
