So has vocaloid completely drowned in irrelevance or what? As far as I can remember it's been years since the last major software update and I don't recall much quality content being created recently either. Not that I follow it too closely though.

I still see Vocaloid threads with new songs on 4/jp/ all the time, so I don't think so.

isn't Vocaloid on 4/jp/ contained to a single thread where they just dump images from gelbooru? I didn't know they actually posted music there

All the ironic weeb zoomies nowadays are into v-tubers and shit, Vocaloid became irrelevant.

I don't really follow the Vocaloid scene too closely either, but I still like to listen to some songs every now and then.

How about we post some songs here?

yeah and I really don't understand why would anyone bother doing that instead of just some basic but fitting 2D animation like in Rolling Girl, that is the question
though I don't think animation is all that important in the first place anyway if the song is really good on its own like https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm7681014

No.521363

>>521359
Yeah any good song doesn't need unnecessary 3D effects or modelling just the album cover or maybe fitting 2D art/animation like in the one you linked. I guess that one I linked isn't as bad as the other song thumbnail I saw by comparison, 'gift nor art' now that looked bad.
Love that track though, do you have more in similar vein to that melodic and ambient sound?

No.521366

I don't think I've encountered any other Vocaloid song that would sound quite like that but these have somewhat similar feeling to them:

you may also try your luck with browsing the ambient tag at vocadb but retards over there know jackshit about music and constantly mistag everything to the point of the website being barely usable for anythingother than keeping track of new releases

Those two are also nice, really appreciate it.
Music mistagging really sucks especially, say, if you like a certain sound of some arranges so most of the time you're slightly better off manually looking up who exactly were behind your favorite songs and try some of their later works just because keyword searching for genres often gives you blatantly mistagged arranges which is unfortunate. Happens quite frequently with Touhou arranges for me although that might vary more or less depending on what kind of stuff you like.

synthwave vocaloid surprisingly doesn't sound all that bad to me, though this one in particular did mess up vocal tone

Vocaloid suffered from the same effect that lo-fi American indie rock did in the 90s. Too easy to produce=lots of garbage.

Oh yeah after thinking about it for a while it reminded me of this one

It's more techno/trance than ambience but it does have some nice melodic lead and ambience in it, also really nice.

No.521468

Loved this one. It's really odd how there's a lack of proper Vocaloid techno especially taking into account that Japan's regular techno scene is pretty good, but when it comes to fusing it with other genres there is actually quite a lot of enjoyable tracks.
For instance, elaborating the topic of melodic ambience, at least as far as ambient techno goes:

The thing is that having a vocaloid sing instead of a real singer doesn't really lower the bar for the music itself, whereas simply being indie might do for indie rock for some people. Nobody will listen to a song that sounds like ass just because it's Vocaloid, even the people who are only in it for cute girls, since they probably just jerk off to fan art anyway.

>It's really odd how there's a lack of proper Vocaloid techno especially taking into account that Japan's regular techno scene is pretty good

Yeah outside what was linked here I'm not too aware of there being a great abundance of Vocaloid techno, though I just discovered another one by mikuru396 - Start sequence
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G260UK1TL_A

What are some noteworthy regular Japanese melodic kind of techno producers? Would like to listen to some more of this kind of music in general

Classic Japanese techno I know of generally tends to be pretty upbeat and often even synth-driven, in essence it usually sounds kind of like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOKyd58K710, so I'm not sure if that meets your requests. However, there are actually tons of quality doujin techno and it's quite varied as well. This one is one of my personal favourites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQ5K6sKx9Ek

The End of the Journey is really good, I like that shiny clean guitar tone with reverb there.
Mizukagami no Niwa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7BmkP75ctE
It's also from Clean Tears coincidentally enough, another nice Vocaloid trance track. The backing synth bass and synth lead melody sound pretty cool

Another cool trance mixed with ambient track I recalled was a Touhou arrange so I posted it in the other thread >>521591 also coincidentally was arranged by a guy that has more works under Diverse System so I'll be sure to listen to some more of Diverse System's trance and techno series in due time.

How would you feel about https://youtu.be/qVuHAyVbFlg? It also features well-executed deep guitar tonality but being shoegaze it's definitely raw, though some tracks do have their moments of clarity.

I like the general atmosphere and synth sound of Aeriel Flow though it is a bit long as it goes all the way up to 10 minutes. Tranquilizer starts off more electronic dance sounding until about 2 minutes in where the melodic ambient part really starts to kick in.

Oh yeah, I remember listening to Tranquilizer a lot when it came out and I still listen to it every once in a while now. It's probably my favourite Vocaloid remix. The vocals capture track's energy quite well and climaxing parts are really powerful.

Agreed. Also from the same album, 'Impure' sounds good too although I think Tranquilizer is still the best sounding track on the album.

This one sounds like UK garage safe for refrain, wonder if there are more tracks with similar sound
