This is messy.
>>10647473What brought THIS on????,
>>10647473Hell yeah burn the witches
>>10647510A few weeks ago this person made a livestream talking about why she left the group on the Tshirt, the screen cap is from a livestream where she celebrated her “1 year anniversary of leaving.” Included a cake and everything.
>>10647473Woah…I know a lot happened to her in that group but Jesus Christ, you don’t have to stream yourself doing this kind of stuff to help heal from it.
>>10647517Fuck you washu. Burn at the stake
>>10647517I don’t know personally I’m all for this kinda healing. Whatever helps ya know?>>10647473What’s her name?

>>10647473Deserved. >>10647561We really need to update the spreadsheet and the playlist. Is spreadsheet anon around still?
>>10647570spreadsheet anon was very discussed last thread, and they seem very uninterested in running it.
>>10647524Not Washu, but whatever helps you sleep at night.
>>10647524No need to get violent, Kuri. This is literally just an idol thread.
>>10647574Someone might as well start a new spreadsheet if they’re up to running it.
>>10647579Everyone wants to talk about it, no one wants to actually do it.
>>10647581>>10647579I took the liberty of copying the old spreadsheet to make a new one. Haven't started working on it yet, but I will tomorrow after work. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QCj4KeUk_cYKUz1-PNB0YQHBdMyxwZ_bJ21cSTiZ9sc/edit?usp=sharingEmail's in the name field so you can email any groups you find.
>>10647570>>10647574The conversation was that nobody wanted to submit stuff or offer to help run it. Someone complained about lack of Canadian groups and spreadsheet anon said if people submitted they'd update but they weren’t going to spend time updating it if nobody was willing to submit content. They’ve always been up to updating.
need better music shows
>>10647602Would you want us to send anything else along with the name of the group?
Reso's kickstarter is out but I'm not seeing anything about the new fourth member?
>>10647804They posted on their story that they'll be rolling out their song cover next week, followed by revealing the logo and theme for the single, and then by revealing the new member. Just gotta wait a bit!
>>10647804Revealing the next member was one of the milestone rewards
Looks like they have a whale.
>>10647929Dang, that was fast! Good for them. I'm excited to see how it turns out!
>>10647929They got a $700 pledge holy fuck
Ayumi is doing a song request fundraiser stream on twitch right now. https://www.twitch.tv/littlepastelidol
Non Sweet released the Timeslip MV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgVwtJCheUQ
I'm trying to learn how to produce music and I'm completely lost. I don't suppose anyone has any advice? I figure I could analyze idol music that already exists and try to recreate it in order to analyze song structure, I don't know.
>>10648061Do you have any background in music or music theory?
>>10648061Maybe start with remixes and mashups? They're kind of easy to do.
Why did Non Sweet release their MV long after releasing the audio? Why not release the MV first, or release both at the same time?
>>10648068Maybe it wasn't ready? Just saw their new mv, it was awesome!
>>10648068>>10648078It’s been done. Fan club got it some time ago but originally the plan was to release it after 500 subs and they changed their mind because the overall response was really positive. They decided releasing it now would benefit more than waiting.
>>10648092I'm glad they released it early! I've been looking forward to seeing it. The choreography is really interesting and I think it gives the MV lots of rewatchability. The motions are both fast and flowing, don't look overly cluttered, and at times, kind of subvert your expectations for where the movement ends up. I really like this choreography! The camerawork is really nice too, and those outfits are truly gorgeous.
>>10648092>the plan was to release it after 500 subsUgh, I hate these games where fans are supposed to reach an achievement in order to unlock content.
>>10648099You mean like gofundme and crowd funds? This is the norm
Reso release schedule
>>10648062Not really, beyond the most basic three note piano songs and a very brief history of choir and band when I was a kid. I know these things don't happen overnight, but maybe it's something i could work towards over a long enough period of time.
>>10648145Does that mean the song's going to come out in two weeks? I really hope it's not as bad as Goddess this time.
>>10648161I think it's just the release date, not the actual release? Do they have to go through the full 30 days of kickstarter?
>>10648175It is just the release date, and they have to go through the full 30 days. I already supported but they don't charge you until the Kickstarter is over.
>>10648160I would start with musictheory.net. Andrew Huang also has a whole playlist for learning music theory and production. Next I'd say pick a daw and get a midi keyboard. Andrew Huang has a $10 app if you have an ios device that is really powerful and comparable to ableton. If you have a mac, logic is probably the easiest to pick up. Aside from that, ableton has a 90 day free trial. Even though it has a bit of a learning curve, it's a really powerful program. The ableton website also has a ton of guided courses on music theory and production for free. If you are really on a budget, people have gotten really big using just garageband too. I'm pretty sure pinkpantheress uses garageband and she has millions of plays and a super unique sound. I think Jedwill uses audacity and still has worked with big names in the pop music and DJ scene. It's not necessarily about the tools, but just how you use them. And I honestly wouldn't focus TOO much on theory before starting to make music. Obviously it's extremely helpful, but don't let it hinder your music creation. I'm trying to learn production too and it's not easy but it's really rewarding. Good luck!
https://youtu.be/ACTpY6pWSP8 Resoluscia's fan requested cover is live.
>>10648651Not a fan of the song but it sounded like a good cover and the video was cute.
>>10648651I like the cover overall, but the English translyrics make it a bit awkward to listen to. Maybe it's the timing/mixing of the vocals or the lyrics themselves, but they feel like they don't fit the song well. I think it would have been better if they stuck to just the Japanese version.
Is she going to come back to us after all of this?
>>10648099It's not so much about the fans reaching an achievement, but to ensure that the group has enough of a following to justify the amount of time & work that goes into things like new songs, music videos, etc.There's not a lot of point behind releasing something with that much effort if nobody will watch it. It's the same as small artists using Kickstarter, pre-orders etc to judge if a product is worth making.
>>10649066She was part of Idols a la Carte, and she was bullied really badly by Kazu (Tambourine) and Washu. She did do an Instagram live about it a while ago. I'm not sure if it's still up
>>10648651why did they mix english and japanese? I get it if they were japanese onomatopoeia but they're not, so it's weird.
>>10649702I don’t think so. I’d rather them keep the Japanese they can’t fit decent English into than force words.
>>10648651what were the fan choices besides this song?
i just noticed that resoluscia has videos on meotashi's yt channel instead of the resoluscia channel. why? seems like a big mistake.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmZJVl5RhrIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FChLyHMni44
>>10649796Yeah I found that weird too.
>>10649766Ice cream cake by Red velvet, can't stop me by twice, and say so from doja cat.
>>10649866wasnt that a long time ago? they just released the cover now?
>>10649868It was about 5 months ago when they held voting for the cover, yeah.
>>10649796Those are meotashi’s vlogs, she’s always done them for cons and stuff. It’s her own content that she made with the group, not the group’s content.
>>10649868It takes a long time to put together full vocals, art, music video, and mixing if you want it to be quality.
>>10649757or just do the entire thing in japanese since the english parts are atrocious and don't match syllables.
>>10650093It really doesn’t and they’ve done their other covers in English so why now would they do one in Japanese?
>>10650123More had Chinese and Korean, Miraculous had french.
>>10650235They were majority in English. They took out a lot of the Korean in More. My point is why would they do a fully japanese cover?
>>10650246Why not? The translyrics for this cover just weren't good, so people are saying that they would have been better off doing it fully in Japanese. I don't think Resoluscia has any unwritten rule saying that they can't cover something in Japanese.
>>10650253They used official funimation english lyrics, so i’d blame funimation before them for that.
>>10650253Because they’ve already established doing covers in English? They used the English version of Miraculous and added in the French. All the Korean and Chinese in More was done by Yooya.
>>10650313Just because they're doing mostly English covers doesn't mean that they can't do something in Japanese...your logic doesn't make sense. English covers aren't their "brand" yet because they're still starting out and this is only their third cover. They can change that at any time.
Off-topic, but did anyone watch Shining Idol Fest last week? Any thoughts?
>>10650344I tuned in for a few minutes, but I genuinely couldn't listen to the MCs talk. It was too hard to listen to.
>>10650344I genuinely forgot that it happened
>>10650343artists aren't allowed to try new things bleh bleh
>>10650344Shining is still trying to have festivals? They need to give up.....
>>10650343Their single is also in English. I feel like if they wanted to do it in Japanese they would’ve. So far every cover has been in English so again - if they wanted to do it in another language why wouldn’t they? Because they want to sing in English.
>>10650382wow an artist on their forth song has already done everything they can do....bleh bleh bleh
>>10650384Sorry you’re so upset over them doing translyrics I guess? It’s their choice so I don’t get why you’re pressed.
Keekihime birthday stream, she talks a ton about her idol, cosplay, music career and life in japanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oALRNgCj6rM
>>10650303I watched the entire anime in japanese and english. Show by rock doesn't have an english version of the opening. If funimation subbed the song at any point in the anime, it still wouldn't make the lyrics actually fit the music.
>>10650464It definitely does, if you watch the dubbed version.
>>10650435Sorry, the bleh bleh bleh was meant to be a clear indication of sarcasm. An artist on their forth song is obviously not locked to what they've already lol
>>10650475ok, my bad, i guess it does in the very last episode. Still, Resoluscia adlibbed a bit and then just straight up didn't do sections. Still doesn't justify the random ass japanese that feels very out of place.
