Founder, Director, Composer
Daryl is the founder of UTALIVE and oversees all of its activities. When she isn't working on UTALIVE projects, she streams music production as a VTuber on Twitch, mentors upcoming composers, plays the guitar, and indulges in her caffeine addiction.

Lee is an avid gamer and an instrument addict. He likes exploring genres, but often finds comfort in his classical roots. Christmas is his favorite season, and windchimes will one way or another work themselves into your commission.

Frequently Asked Questions
|What is UTALIVE?||UTALIVE is a circle of music creators. We are not a VTuber agency or company.|
|What is your turn around time?||Please allow up to 10-15 business days for an initial draft, and then another 2-3 days per revision. Delivery time may vary depending on the complexity of your commission, and how filled our wait list is. Please contact us for a more accurate delivery date.|
|Do you do rush deliveries?||Yes! If you need a track within a hard deadline of 7 days or less, we can accommodate for an additional rush fee. Please contact for more information.|
|Can I buy a commercial license now and a full buy out later?||Yes! Please contact us and we can determine the price difference for you to pay to upgrade to a full buy out.|
|Can my friends use the track that I commissioned?||Unless you commissioned the track specifically for them (e.g. as a gift) or bought the full rights (a "Full Buyout"), no. Licenses are only good for one individual; please contact us if multiple people need to use the music, and we can work something out!|
|How many revisions do I get?||We provide unlimited minor revisions (simple changes that do not affect the overall composition), and up to 3 major revisions (changes that would require us to re-write a significant part of the music). You may request revisions any time during the commission process, and up to 3 days after delivery of the final product. Any revision requests after the 3 allotted major revisions or 3 days after final delivery may be subject to additional fees.|
|How do I credit?||Please include "(Producer Name) of UTALIVE" and a link to UTALIVE.pro in your About section on Twitch or in the video description of each video/ stream on Youtube, NicoNicoDouga, BiliBili, etc.|
|If I commission an instrumental for a cover, am I safe from DMCA?||While you do need a custom instrumental in order to safely and legally monetize your cover, you are still responsible for obtaining the proper cover song distribution license. We highly recommended SoundDrop for this - they currently only charge 99 cents per song license!|
|How do I join UTALIVE?||Thank you for your interest! We are not actively seeking additional UTALIVE team members (composers/ audio engineers) or UTALIVE partners at this time.|
|How do I contact UTALIVE partners?||Please find out how to contact each individual partner on their Twitter or websites linked in the partner page. We are not a contact point for our partners. Thank you!|
