ok, first thing’s first cause I’m sure you’re all going to ask.
No there hasn’t been a Joost Update as of yet. I left my address, email address, phone number and website with DEARS, and I haven’t personally heard anything.
Those of you who did email dears through http://gackt.com please let me know if you get a reply.
Remember they get high volumes of emails a day - so If you’ve sent one email and you’re still concerned about the Joost copies... write one more letter.
If you haven’t written at all, make sure you drop them and/or Gackt a line. And as always, keep it civil to show Gackt fans in a non-rabid fan girl/boy kind of way ^_^
Otherwise, Joost is still getting Gackt fans who are upset about what he did, posting messages on the "Fraud exposed" vid, and on Joost’s personal vids, especially artemis. His official page has not changed for a few days.
And while he thanks his "fans" for standing up for him, and does apologize to people who "feel" he may have taken too many liberties with Gackt’s music..
but he does also state he will continue to make music depsite the recent "negativity"
No credit to Gackt has yet been given on either his Discography page where he lists the songs and ablums for sale (where he also credits himself as the composer), nor in the descriptions of his youtube videos.
Do you want to compose music or write lyrics (that don’t rip off any of Gackt’s music...) but that Gackt will personally SING for you?
Well... look no further... Maybe.
There is a product called Vocaloid that’s been on the market since 2004 Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer application software developed by the Yamaha Corporation that enables users to synthesize singing by just typing in lyrics and melody.
In the second release (Vocaloid 2) Once you compose the music or lyrics you want sung... a synthesized voice provided by voice actors.
The rumor HERE is that Gackt has been asked to provide one of the Vocaloid voices.
However, in the article they even ask the question, being that this information was released on April first, it begs to wonder if it is an April Fool’s Joke.
It will remain to be seen when the 3rd in the Vocaloid series is said to be released (tentatively) in May.
If it turns out to be true... I, for one, will get it! LOL!
There is no word on the official site, (and here) tho there has been rumored news there is a 3rd vocaloid being developed to be released sometime in 2008.
Time will tell ^_^
