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.

An Expansion of Scope: Community, UTAU & Vocal Synthesizers

In the first Editorial post in over a year we would like to officially expand the scope of Engloids.Info.

When we started this blog we wanted to be the best “Engloid” blog on the West. Now, more than a year later, I would like to think we achieved that goal… if only because we never really had any competition.

We started with a simple mission statement and the humble goal of “Spreading the Engloid Love”. Traditionally I have always translated “Engloid” to “English Vocaloid” but this always seemed a bit narrow of a definition. We don’t just love English-language Vocaloid but all English supporting Vocal Synthesizers.

So with this love in mind we are formally expanding our scope to include English-language UTAU and other Vocal Synthesizing technology. We haven’t changed our original mission statement, we are simply spreading the love around, because we love many things, but we love vocal synths most of all.

Beyond this we would also like to not only spread the love ourselves but cover other people in the act of spending it. Expect more Convention, Concert, and Event coverage in the future as we look forward to covering the many evens the English speaking community has to offer.

If you would like to join us in spreading the love. Staff Recruitment is Open once again.
We are looking for news bloggers, regular columnists on related topics, and at least one more editor to keep us all in check.
