[Kagamine Append] 4 More Appends Revealed!

Len's Soft Append

Rin's Power Append

Len's Moody Append

Rin's Sweet Append

[VY1] Deluxe Package Available on Yamaha Vocaloid Store!

On August 13th, Yamaha updated their store with pre-orders for their new Vocaloid, simply titled VY1 — the “MIZKI” codename was just in relation to the ‘hanamizuki‘ theme (a type of flower).

In addition to just the software, which will cost 11,800 yen, there is a deluxe version available for 3,000 yen more. The deluxe version comes with a T-shirt, a face towel, stickers, a special case, and a compilation CD. The CD features covers and arrangements by well-known producers, and along with the songs, there are different designs drawn out for VY1. VY1 has no set character design, and is actually the first Japanese Vocaloid to be released as such. This is ostensibly because VY1 is to be considered a product for professional musicians.

Pre-orders end on the 25th and the software will be available starting September 1st, but if you pre-order you also get a special VY1 tumbler.

For those who want a better feel for VY1′s voice, the songs “Flower and Water” and “648 Song” are being used as a tool for comparison between voicebanks.

Flower and Water

648 Song

There are versions of “Flower and Water” using Miku’s soft append, GUMI, and Lily, and versions of “648 Song” using Miku’s light append and Lily, for better comparison. (“648 Song” was a Hatsune Miku original that was first released back in early 2009 as an example of using just iPhone applications to produce a song.)

[UPDATE] New Vocaloid From AHS Announced [UPDATE]

"Rio" from "Kitty to Issho!" by KEI

There are issues that need to be clarified about AHS new Vocaloid:

1) The YouTube video showing the new Vocaloid’s song demos over at the Comiket 78 event is only an image, KEI’s kittyler Rio is NOT the official illustration for the new Vocaloid. Kittyler Rio is part of another collaboration known as “Kitty to Issho!”.

2) The new Vocaloid’s official illustration will NOT be done by KEI but by another illustrator who’s not yet announced at the moment.

3) The reason for the collaboration between Sanrio and AHS is simply due to Sanrio having its 50th anniversary and AHS choosing Sanrio in a random selection for the Vocaloid collaboration.

[Kagamine Append] Len & Rin's Appends Revealed!

Information from Crypton’s Vocaloid2 CV Twitter account has revealed a test version of Rin’s Append Sweet and there’s also more information regarding Len’s Append which was made known recently.

First off here’s the sample with Rin’s Append Sweet. Do take note that the Append is still in its experimental stage so do expect possible updates and changes in the future.

Now onto the news regarding Len’s Append. According to this tweet Crypton has just finished the sound check for the Alpha version of Kagamine Len’s Append and they will be planning to show his Append voice latest by January next year.

New Vocaloid From AHS Announced

We will be having another Vocaloid joining the family and this time round it’s from AH-Software Co. Ltd., in which the news was announced during this year’s summer Comiket.

Although we still don’t know the name of the Vocaloid or who the official illustrator will be but what we do know that Sanrio was chosen by AHS in a random pick for the Vocaloid collaboration due to Sanrio having its 50th anniversary. The new Vocaloid’s public showing will be in September and sales will begin in October.

New Vocaloid Announced

A rather cryptic website has popped up featuring three sample songs from an upcoming Vocaloid, simply titled VY1. Other sources say that her name is Mizuki,” and even more speculate that this might actually be a splicing project, as the three featured songs seem to have different voices each.
