I was talking to a Japanese UTAU user. People who record for voicebanks apparently rarely make their own OTOs. They just post them without them or with crappy ones, and cool people have to step in and fix them.
However, they sometimes have more poorly configured banks than they do people to configure them.
Why don't we try doing something like that to show that we can be cohesive?
I think that something like "OTO races" that I outlined for several people (We pool unconfigured banks, assign them points, and then we assign the banks so that everyone will have the same amount of points in the end OR count samples and distribute them so everyone has the same amount of samples, then we set a date, then start the races. Either the first to finish or the one to have the most done by the end of the time period wins. The prize? A warm, fuzzy feeling of accomplishment. Or something cool.) would be good for the community, but it would probably be easier just to make up an OTO team, pool banks, then assign banks to the members of the OTO team.
To be a member, you would have to display excellence in creation of OTO.ini files.
(I'm not even sure if I can say I show excellence ... I think I can, but I'm not sure.)
Oh, you'd also have to have the free time to configure banks. /is shot
However, if we get this working right, it will be great for the community and allow people to focus more on what they specialize in, which is kind of what the Japanese do from what I've seen.
