Tell us about yourself!
Hello! I’m a fairly new face to the Youtaite scene. I’m a vocalist/mixer/novice arranger who’s learning to make guides and my own instrumental arrangements for songs. I also compose original music (which is still in the works) and have plans to release them in the future.
How'd you first become involved with the Youtaite community?
I’d been doing very novice covers for a little while outside the community for a little while. In an effort to grow (and also out of curiosity to meet people from the community), I officially started my Youtaite activities in late 2020-early 2021.
What made you wanna participate in chorus battles?
I was vaguely aware of what chorus battles were and always found them so fascinating. To get to work with amazingly talented people to create something better than the sum of its part was very satisfying. I also knew the work ethic and flow of CBs would be really beneficial to helping me improve in my current skills (as a vocalist and mixer) as well as branch out into others (such as guide making, scripting, and organizing).
What was your first CB?
Good Game CB or GGCB. I joined an acquaintance’s team as vocalist and mixer (mix/master).
How'd you become interested in being a Mixer?
I always found the process of mixing so illusive and so interesting. How you could turn all these recordings into something which was so pleasing and interesting to listen to. Out of necessity too for myself, not knowing anyone who mixed and not really knowing the resources to commission people to mix covers for me, I wanted to learn how to mix.
Any funny or amusing CB stories?
Never forgetting a late night work call with Saisei, Kai Caramba, Jas, and Doll for TB:A R1 where Jas and I both ended up sleeping at around 4AM because we lost track of time. Also the birth of the Luuna’s Fingers thing had me in tears from laughing.
Any advice for people interested in CBs?
I think it’s an experience you really need to try at least once in your life. Even if you feel really inexperienced and really nervous, it’s honestly such a great method of growing as well as making friends/working with new people. Be open-minded to feedback and just overall enjoy yourself, you’re making something awesome no matter what!
