(UPDATED) On the heels of the recently concluded UTAUvision event, another UTAU community project is in the works!
Kowareta, founder of the UTAU Human Project (UHP), has announced that she is working with “some big names” in the VOCALOID and UTAU community to organize a chorus battle event dubbed as “UHP-CB”
“This event is a big UTAU-only chorus battle! The goal is to assemble your own team to tune a cover or original with voicebanks of your choice! Unlike UTAUVision, this is not going to be country restricted, and you can use whatever voicebanks you want! More information can be found in the links below! We are actually working with the host of next year’s UV to bring you this chorus battle!”, the announcement stated.
The panel of judges for UHP-CB are the following:
- Tuning: Akem, Kowareta, Minome
- Art: Mato, Ekkoberry, itporl
- Creativity: Ariotsu, Nate
- Mixing: GHPZ, KenjiB
- Interpretation: Kuro Cure, WanWan
Kowa hopes that the event will bring the community closer together and become an annual event if enough people are interested.
