Bolly Joel is a joke voicebank for the UTAU program.

History

On April 22, 2019, Bolly Joel was released. He is a joke bank with 3 different moo samples at different pitches and two types of breaths.

Concept

Bolly Joel was manufactured by Miyuki Masara, in an attempt to genetically engineer a cow the size of a hamster.  Bolly Joel was the result of the experiment, and a resounding success at that.  Miyuki studies him daily, and takes good care of him.  Despite being the size of a hamster, he's still a cow at heart.  He has to be milked twice daily, and produces 0.01 milligrams of milk each session.  He can only be fed grass, hay and the occasional cheese cud.  Miyuki has taught him various tricks, such as rolling over and playing fetch.  He loves playing with people and being given love and attention.

Likes: Grass, hay, cud, Miyuki, playing, doing tricks, having his hair brushed

Dislikes: Loud noises, being squeezed, being laughed at

  • Sometimes, Bolly Joel's highest pitch can be distracting when heard alongside his middle pitch. However, because all pitches are aliased with a suffix, simply put the middle pitch alias next to the "moo" to fix it.
