Hello to all new members and/or visitors!
#UTAU-UST is a group specially made in courtesy to the Japanese software UTAU [commonly thought of as the free counterpart and alternative to Vocaloid!]
For the program, you can find the download here! utau2008.xrea.jp/
[Basic Installation Tutorial: utau.wikia.com/wiki/UTAU_wiki:…
And the latest English Translation! www.voiceblog.jp/mianaito/1062…
Information about UTAU-Synth (+ 30 day trial!) - www.vocaloidism.com/2011/05/29…
Other tools you can use for UTAU: utaforum.co.cc/topic/8144569/1…
For those who are experienced enough, UST should be a familiar term! [Along side with the Vocaloid and other software counterparts, VSQ's and MIDI's] Those who aren't, UST stands for UTAU Script File. They act like sheet music that's pre-made and can be loaded into UTAU. [Hopefully!] the UST's that can be found have correct lyrics, timing and melody~!
However, these files aren't always easy to find! And to many, they aren't easy to make either. So, with best of hope, #UTAU-UST will assist everyone in finding their desired USTs/VSQ's/MIDI's.
Below you can find major ust directories. Be sure to check them out before requesting!
vocalochu.blogspot.com/2009/12… [Vocalochu ; Probably the biggest, organized UST directory to the Overseas community!]
utaulibrary.blogspot.com/ [UTAULibrary ; Lots of MODE 1 UST's, can be outdated but surely helpful!]
utaforum.co.cc/topic/8188069/1… [Largest Overseas Forum there probably is, UTAforum! Specifically, this is the place where you can check lots of individual's directories.]
To request, check out our request blog! utau-ust.deviantart.com/journa…
Remember! Crediting is incredibly important!
To join our group, go the top of the page and click "Join our Group." All members are accepted immediately and automatically.
Currently, admins are not being requested for but if you find a strong desire, feel free to note us with a persuasive resumé! C:
Several folders have been set up for the group! Be sure to read the rules and try your best to place them in the corresponding folder! For help, feel free to ask us before submitting as we no longer supply constant amount of rejection details!
RE-SUBMISSIONS OR MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS OF THE SAME DEVIATION ARE NOT ALLOWED UNLESS SPOKEN TO AN ADMIN. Consequences include a warning and just notification, but continuous behaviour shall not be tolerated unfortunately.
Featured-Do not submit anything right into there please! *EDIT* : Starting now (December 15th, 2011) all files must contain USTs created by the submitter. Unfortunately past deviations won't be restored into the featured folder.
Romaji/Hiragana-For submissions that have a link to a song that an UTAU cover with the link where you can find the ust, vsq or midi for it. (Remember, we're trying to help others create songs too-!) Depending on the file, place it into the one that applies to it. (Ex. If there is a link to a romaji ust for Black Rock Shooter, place it under 'romaji.')
Remember to credit the creator!
*Avoid directly linking to the provider's UST DL. Please, instead, link to the video with the link if possible.
EDIT: New rule. If there IS another source to the UST DL (video, user's DL list), the link you include may ONLY be to those instead. Please respect the creators by following this rule.
Utau Characters- Any fanart of UTAUs that do not have a linked UST/VSQ/MIDI. Vocaloids and other characters can be found in the same picture as long as there is an UTAU featured.
Other Language UST's- For deviations that have links to UST's that are meant for languages other than Japanese, regardless of how it's encoded.
*Please follow the same crediting and linking rules.
VB Downloads-Deviations solely meant to link to direct voicebank downloads.
EXAMPLE: Icon art for the voicebank with the link to the VB.
Fullbody for design purposes with VB links are allowed as well.
Do not submit cover art.
There is lenience towards artwork such as fullbody concepts that have release videos in the description.
Sketchy - Lines - WIP Deviations that lack colour, BGs, are incomplete and / or messy.
Currently, there is no limit to the number of deviations but it is keen to submit to the correct folder as we will not provide notices anymore and simply reject misplaced files.
Edit: Do not submit journals / text unless they include DIRECT VB or UST DLs that are YOURS.
Thanks for visiting and happy UTAUing!
