Miyuki Masara (美雪マサラ) has three voicebanks for the UTAU program.

History

Miyuki's original VCV bank was released on January 3, 2017. This bank is monopitch with a very small range. This version of Miyuki has since been re-released three times to fix oto issues. This bank will likely never see another update. On August 20, 2020, this bank was officially retired.

On November 15, 2019, an updated powerscale KIRE voicebank was released for Miyuki. The bank is tripitch and gets more powerful the higher the pitch. The voicebank is CVVC with some English extras.

On December 29, 2019, a CVVC English bank was released for Miyuki. This bank matches her previous powerscale KIRE bank in terms of tone and pitch.

On January 7, 2020, an update for Miyuki's CVVC KIRE bank was released to celebrate her 3 year anniversary and fix some of her noted issues.

On March 22, 2020, an update fixing Miyuki's oto issues was released.

As of August 20, Miyuki's original VCV bank has been retired and is not available for public download.

On August 25, an update for Miyuki's CVVC KIRE bank was released, which overhauled the oto with needed changes.

On December 31, 2020, Miyuki's English bank was re-released. The oto was reconfigured, all aliases were changed to X-Sampa, and the VV sections were all re-recorded.

Concept

Miyuki was born to Hayate and Hanae Masara on the planet Zecersonia on January 12, 1997 (in Earth years of course). Miyuki is part of the Zecersonian royal family, and has an elevated position in its society. She excelled in academics and became especially interested in space exploration and robotics. At 15, she built herself an android to serve as a personal assistant. Most of Miyuki's technology is built from her own hands. She rose to the ranks of Space Force General by the age of 18 and was praised for being a shining child prodigy. She was tasked with the mission of staking claim to the planet Earth for a Zecersonian takeover. Upon landing on earth, she encountered a group of four guys: Saito, Tatsuya, Kuza, and Kiigire. None of them believed that she was there to conquer the planet, and instead allowed her to stay in their residence. Upon learning more about Miyuki, they found out about her interest in metal music and invited her to join their band. Miyuki agreed to become a part of the band as it would pave the way to an easier world domination. The band would go on to become a massive success. To this day, no one believes Miyuki came to Earth to destroy it, though being an alien is part of her band persona. Despite being highly intelligent and even more so by Zecersonian standards, she knows quite little about human culture or history. Miyuki is on the Autism Spectrum, has symptoms of ASPD and although a savant, lacks a filter and often times remorse. Though her actions and words may not show it, she cares deeply for those she's close to and will go to great lengths to help them. Miyuki has an affinity for large-breasted women, cows, and metal music. Her favorite band is Slipknot. She has genetically engineered a cow the size of a hamster named Bolly Joel. Miyuki has a younger sister, Mieko. Her grandfather is Seiji Masara.

Likes: Cows, pomegranates, death metal, dancing, science

Dislikes: Hurting others, not being able to relate to others, lacking empathy

Vocal traits as noted:
  • Miyuki's VCV is soft and has a small range. Because of the BPM she was recorded at and existing oto issues, the voicebank lags on certain notes. She becomes muffled at some points and sometimes harmonies will sound awful.
  • Miyuki's CVVC KIRE is a much-improved version of the original VCV. The lowest pitch sounds deep and dark, the middle pitch is loud and versatile, and the highest pitch is powerful and sounds like shouting. Harmonizing is much less painful with this bank.
  • Miyuki's CVVC English matches her existing CVVC KIRE bank, and is recommended for singing in English. Her lowest pitch is deep and solid, the middle is clear, and the highest is shouted and the most powerful.
Software issues as noted:
  • Miyuki VCV definitely has more issues, and is being phased out in favor of Miyuki's KIRE.

Original VCV

  • Sometimes Miyuki's notes will lag and sound awful.
  • She is soft and becomes muffled, making harmonizing a struggle. It's recommended to use different g flags on her harmonies.
  • Fresamp and the flags BRE0Y99C99c99H0h0B0b0F1L1 are the best for Miyuki.


KIRE CVVC

  • Miyuki's bank should be used as fully CVVC to get the best experience.
  • Fresamp and the flags BRE0Y99C99c99F1L1 are best for Miyuki.


CVVC English

  • While there aren't notable issues in Miyuki's English bank, her reclist may be more difficult for those to pick up that don't have prior experience with English UTAU banks. Pronunciation and How To Use guides, as well as a replace list for iroiro2, have been included in Miyuki's bank folder.
  • Fresamp and the flags BRE0Y99C99c99F1L1 are best for Miyuki.
