Spotlight: Breaking Point

Spotlight: Breaking Point

Aiko’s first original! ;n;

Thank you sososososososo much Cien for writing the song, music and lyrics and letting me make Aiko sing it ;n; Aaron and I just added some extra higher vocal parts here and there.

It was a huge incentive to finish her English beta (which is still more alpha right now… I still have shittons of otoing to finish)

I’m so proud ;A; My baby is 2 years old and has a song of her own now~

Hopefully with many more to come as Cien and I improve ;n;

This is a song I have wanted to share ever since I first heard it. It wasn’t until the recent expansion in scope that this became possible. I had briefly considered sharing Big Al’s -Shatter Mix- but Koda has already been featured twice and I didn’t want there it to seem like we are giving him preferential treatment. For the uninitiated Breaking Point is Cein’s breakout English UTAU hit that inspired no less than 5 different remixes and a dozen covers between them.

It is one of the rare cases where the Vocaloid covers outnumber their UTAU counterparts. The number disparity likely has a lot to do with the limited number of Kit-Kat Capable UTAU, but the song is a landmark example of how English UTAU can rival, if not surpass their English counterparts. At almost 32k views this UTAU Original has more views than any 3 of Koda-P’s Originals combined. In fact, Koda-P’s -Shatter Mix-‘s views is only surpassed by Halloween Requiem, his one of his oldest Originals.

    Indeed, UTAU is also becoming popular in English. I wonder how many sounds would you need to make an English UTAUloid..

    Also, another reason why UTAU could become more popular in English is because UTAU is free to download and therefore, with a few patches, can become available to much more people especially in those areas where the Vocaloid software can be either out of reach or just too expensive. Not to mention you can make your own voicebank with it.
