A Rant On Vocaloid VSQs
People are not obligated to distribute their VSQs.
Why should they be? They spend several hours, maybe even days getting all the notes right, inputting lyrics, making harmonies, possibly tuning. Why should you have the automatic privilege of taking all that work, slapping it into another voicebank, and putting it on Youtube within minutes?
Particularly concerning tuned VSQs, if you somehow manage to acquire one, just don’t fucking touch it. Look at it? Mimic and learn the tuning techniques? Sure! But don’t fucking render out the VSQ with your pirated voicebank and upload your own kawaii cover onto Youtube. Even if you give credit, even if you didn’t pirate your voicebank, that’s disrespectful as shit.
Even worse, if you distribute that VSQ without the creator’s permission, there’s a special seat reserved for you in hell.
If the creator has given permission to use their VSQ? That’s all right!
But if they decide to remove the download of their VSQ for whatever reason, you better fucking respect that decision and don’t give the VSQ to anybody else.
And don’t fucking get on someone’s cover video and beg for a VSQ download, ever. If they’ve decided to not give out the VSQ, no amount of sugarcoating or asskissing will change their mind to let people exploit their hard work just like that.
THIS ALL APPLIES TO USTS AS WELL.
