And so Little Ami FINALLY DISCOVERS THE TRUTH BEHIND UTALOIDS.

They're made out of human voice banks.

........ YEAH, YEAH, I KNOW, DON'T YELL AT ME, OKAY?!?

Gee, I always wondered why there were like a billion UTAUs out there made by people. STUPID AMY, IT'S BECAUSE THOSE PEOPLE HAVE VOICES.

---

I never really paid much attention to UTAU, since it sounds a bit more choppy and robotic than Vocaloid, until I was talking to :iconhannahthewriter: currently, and we discussed her UTAU's voice. When she talked about her accent, something just popped up in my head saying, "WAIT. WHAT?? How are UTAU voice banks REAAAALLY made?"

And so I Googled it and... Yep. Apparently, you record your voice saying Japanese fragments and input it into some program, which turns it into a voice bank.

The thing is... How did I think that they WEREN'T made by humans? I guess it's because I was reading some misleading comments about pitching down some voice parts on a video about someone's character. My previous theory was that there was already a boring blank recording in the program, and that you could pitch or lower the sounds to make your robot. I should've thought a little further, and that if people did that, the world would run out of UTAUs and octaves XDDD .

Thank you for listening to me ranting on how stupid I am.

XD I knew that UTAUs were made by actual humans, but don't feel bad. i don't even know how i know that seeing as though I know next to nothing about UTAU. I only had to go and search some up for my story... UTAUs are complicated, I don't like them ;A; (Cept for Teto, Ted and Momo :la: i wuv Momo :heart: ) so XDDD

Yeah, and i've heard of many others. There are like a bazzilion of them and they all have such complicated personalities and whatnot ;A; it's too confusing for my mind, which is already bursting at the seams because of all the anime and video game knowledge I've managed to shove in there >.>
