While it is still evident that they are still friends, Isubokuro said in a twitcas a few years ago is that Sou is really busy recently (with the nayutan seijin album and the Crossover live and the Eve Sou album and live...) so they haven't got much time to record together (this could also be that Isubokuro lives farther away from Sou than Eve does although this is just my assumption based on where Isubokuro said he lived a few years ago and the areas that Eve and Sou tweet about together). When he said this he also said PLEASE DO NOT HATE EVE FOR THIS BECAUSE IT IS NOT EVE'S FAULT nor is it Sou's it's just the unfortunate coincidence he is so busy. Indeed I hope for new covers but being good friends still is a relief!
For me I would say that unless the producer has said it can be used (or it is OFFICIALLY uploaded on piapro or by the utaite themselves on other websites which usually they will notify on twitter) ask before using it and WAIT FOR THEM TO GIVE PERMISSION because if they say no but you already uploaded it you may run into trouble.
If it is a reprint of an utaite's cover that is illegal as many of them have said before not to reupload their covers onto youtube/bilibili/naver/other video sites. If fans want to support the utaite it should be to their own upload instead of illegal uploaders. If you translated a song and you want to put it with the video so people in your language can understand while watching, (I'm not entirely sure how to do this myself) but you should send them to the producer and ask for them to add it to captions of their video (as it gives credit to you too).
All in all I think it is best to ask first, if it's an upload on piapro you can just tell the producer with a simple お借りました (okarimashita) which means "borrowed [it]"
I'm not sure if this would help you but some utaite participated in music related programs during school such as choir (soraru) or were in a band (ito kashitaro). Even if you don't start at a very young age doing it would still help in terms of breathing and voice training. Actually, any experience related to music (music related courses in school) will be of help. Also, practice is really important. A friend of mine has a really beautiful voice that has a consistant tune (that I can't seem to keep myself) and she sings very frequently at home and goes to karaoke. The more comfortable you are with your voice and the ranges of your voice are the easier it will be for notes to come out. Sorry if this sounds a little strange
that's right! he has gotten really popular now. though this discussion started 2 years ago....
oh of course~ from making goods and making music for anime openings for example atom the beginning but most of the producer work is in After the Rain. He does mostly mixing for other people
i don't think that has been revealed yet. maybe if you go to a handshake event and ask he might say (probably not though)
myself? i haven't although he have tweeted before that if you want to cover his songs and such its alright to just go and do it. no need to email every time.
hello! at the beginning, all utaite start out small. usually anime opening covers don't get as much views (i'm not sure with exact proof why but it could be because they are very short) unless it is from a very famous anime such as osomatsu-san so maybe if you also tried more popular songs that aren't just anime that can help. also, if you create social media account such as twitter and have the song there (as link and a clip of the song as preview video) you can add tags and such so people can see it when they search the certain tag. when there are more tags more people will come across it. one thing i don't really suggest is randomly commenting or dm or message people telling them to listen to your song because although there are some that do, but many (including me) do think its slightly annoying and will probably not look at it. i hope this can help you!
i noticed too it said at the top that tmbox ended but the website links still worked until sometime late august where if you click on any of the links they fully shut down the server.
alright thank you for cooperating!
well, not necessarily. I do believe he (viptenchou is a boy despite the ladylike voice) said he would not sing anything unless he allows it with his friends. The two of them sang Heart a la mode back in the summer of 2016 i think but since then he has not uploaded any new songs by himself nor used any social media accounts so i dont think he is coming back....sorry about that.
but if you look out for 96neko's uploads, maybe you can find new uploads featuring viptenchou! Hope this is ok
i see. thank you very much!!
