Two Vocaloid song demos were revealed at a fan panel at this past weekend’s New York Comic Con event. They are of the upcoming voicebanks, Hatsune Miku English Version and Kaito Append. You may listen to the previews after the jump.
Yesterday a 「Vocaloid and Music Software Industry」 lecture was held at the EEIC Engineering Department at The University of Tokyo. Sasaki Wataru of Crypton Future Media (co-developer of Vocaloid) was on-hand to discuss the future of their product. Audio samples of KAITO Append “Power” and “Whisper,” as well as an incomplete version (only 40% complete) of the upcoming English Miku Vocaloid software were also revealed. You may hear the sound clip after the jump.
Last month at New York Anime Festival, a panel was held with regards to the future of Crypton’s Vocaloid series. It was there were plans of a possible English version of Hatsune Miku Vocaloid software would be under heavy consideration if there was enough demand for it. Fans would be able to display their interest in the idea by visiting Hatsune Miku’s Facebook page. If her Facebook reaches 39,390 “likes” — the number meaning “miku” and “sankyu (thank you)” — then we’ll soon be hearing the now international virtual idol sensation sing in English. That very goal has been reached today.
