broadwayorbustt asked:

I'm a Gaga Stan and am going to see her ARTRAVE tour and I need to know what to heck a vocaloid is and what a hatsue mikeu is and I need to understand what it is in plain English, I am honestly so confused as to why an electronic projected robot would go on a "live" tour. I want to like it it's just that i don't understand it

stereolimit:

okay, it’s very confusing but I’ll try to explain it as simple as possible! but I’ll also try to be as thorough as possible…

(this part is about Vocaloid in general, if you know this already and are just curious as to how a Vocaloid would preform live then skip this part)

Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid.

Vocaloid is a singing synthesis software, and Hatsune Miku is a voice on this singing software. (an example of the Vocaloid2 interface is shown above)

Vocaloid is something that you basically create the notes, add lyrics, and the voice will sing for you! an easier way to explain it would be to say that it turns the voice into a playable instrument.

Because of this, artists can utilize Hatsune Miku to sing their songs that they normally could not sing themselves. This brings a lot of advantages! For example, Miku will sing exactly how you tell her to, she will sing exactly WHAT you tell her to, and she will NEVER mess up. And although she sounds a bit robotic, she can hit notes that most real Vocalists can’t, and she can sing faster than most vocalists can. Her voice and the way she sounds is entirely up to the user.

What really makes her unique though, is that she’s more than a voice.

Hatsune Miku is a virtual idol. she is the entirely virtual aspect of a pop star. Although she doesn’t create her own music, she is used as an outlet and medium for many aspiring artists to become known. Basically, Hatsune Miku represents an entire community of people, and is not just a single being with a single sound and a few albums.

Hatsune Miku was probably was chosen to be opening Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP tour because she is a great combination of art and pop. Her entire being is music. She isn’t just a persona, and she doesn’t have a life outside of music at all. She ‘lives for the applause,’ and if nobody utilizes her, she will die. However, she has such a huge fan following that she’ll probably never die! Her image and popularity as a Virtual Idol is an extremely unique feat that has never been reached before by a mere program.

Hatsune Miku has transcended multiple mediums, appearing in Animes, her own series of best-selling Video Games, and even going so far as to appear live in concert.

Hatsune Miku’s live concerts are extremely unique, created with cutting edge technology.

Since Hatsune Miku’s entire essence is the fact that she does not have a tangible physical form, imagining a concert with her as the main performer seems a bit odd to most people. However, in reality, it isn’t much different than many pop stars these days!

Live concerts featuring Hatsune Miku have been going on for quite some time! They feature the virtual idol projected onto a screen with prerecorded vocals and dance moves tailored especially for a live audience. Although she technically cannot perform or sing live, this still gives a very unique and enjoyable experience!

She also has her own band that performs the songs live with her! This makes sure that the music still has that unique and live sound, different from the studio versions of songs. The songs that are performed live are normally the most notable and popular songs featuring Hatsune Miku, and aren’t necessarily all by one artist! A concert may feature anywhere from 5 to 20 different musical artists, all utilizing Hatsune Miku.

Also, There are many more Vocaloids besides Hatsune Miku. Some of which even appear as guests in concert with Miku!

In total, there are around 50+ Vocaloids released with varying mascots and voice types. However, Hatsune Miku is the most well known of these. If you wish to learn more about other Vocaloids, please look them up! Although it may be overwhelming at first, each character and voice is very unique and there’s a Vocaloid out there for everyone!

TL;DR: Hatsune Miku is a program. To perform live, her presence is projected onto a screen. She is NOT a hologram, but rather a virtual image that creates an exciting and unique experience for the audience watching her!


I HOPE THAT EXPLAINS IT!! I’m sorry it was so long…

If you have any questions or want me to clear something specific up or explain something better, please send me an ask!! I’ll be happy to help anybody who wishes to learn about Vocaloid! It’s really awesome!

someone who doesnt know kagepro should describe this

The ipod kid’s drink got stuck in the machine. The other kid got ambitious and tried to reach up into the machine to retrieve it. Ipod kid still feels that it’s his drink.

More like ipod kid catches his plain looking friend making out with the vending machine and looks rightfully disturbed.

iPod KiD walks up on plain-looking classmate trying to steal a drink from the vending machine. iPod kid happens to be a vending machine fanatic, does not approve of this action. Prepare to open a can of musical whup-ass.

Are you implying a love triangle between iPod KiD, plain-looking friend, and the vending machine?
