☆ Hello, and welcome to UTAU-R-US!! ☆

UTAU-R-US is a group for UTAU and VOCALOID enthusiasts as well as users of other singing synthesis programs. Even though our primary focus is UTAU, we strive to bring the members of the UTAU / VOCALOID and other singing synth communities closer together.

We support members of all skill levels to keep improving and encourage those who want to become producers and make their own music!! Here we feature art, covers and original songs of UTAU / VOCALOID and other singing synths.

The group icon was made by PRISMkidd
It's based on the UTAU logo.

☆ WHAT IS UTAU? ☆

UTAU is a Japanese singing synthesis software created by Ameya/Ayame. UTAU is similar to the VOCALOID software, however UTAU is free to download and use. There's also a version of UTAU for Mac called UTAU Synth which makes it possible for anyone to create a synthesized voice. These synthetic singers are called UTAUloids.

UTAUloids, similarly to VOCALOIDs, are virtual singers to put it simply. To make an UTAUloid, users record samples of themselves talking or singing strings of syllables in any language. A list of these syllable strings is commonly referred to as a reclist (recording list or recite list). Occasionally users will record the same reclist multiple times at different pitches to achieve a voice with a wider singing range as well as changing their voice in other ways to achieve a voice with wider expressions such as whisper or power. These collections of recordings are referred to as a voice library or voicebank.

There is also a visual appeal to UTAU, as users often create and illustrate characters to represent their voicebanks in the same manner as VOCALOIDs. While most users tend to create human-like characters, there are some users who have created animal-like characters, mythical creatures, and even given life to inanimate objects to represent their UTAUs, proving just how creative the development process can be and that an UTAUloid can be just about anything anyone can think of.

It's most common for users to have their voicebanks sing covers of existing songs from many different origins, genres and languages, the most notable being songs that were originally composed for and sung by VOCALOIDs. However there are some music producers within the UTAU community that compose original songs specifically for their own and other fan-made virtual idols.

This year, instead of holding a spring contest like usual, we decided to host a Spring UTAU Design event!!

It's pretty simple:

- create and illustrate a typical "Sakura" design or a springtime outfit for your UTAU(s)
- post your designs over on Twitter and @ us using the #SakuraUTAU / #SpringtimeUTAU tags

We'll be retweeting everyone's designs throughout the season!! We want to see and share everyone's cute UTAU(s) in fun Sakura / Springtime designs!! Let's spread the springtime love!! :heart:

That's all for now. Have fun!! <3
