So I would have put this into Off-Topic chat, but a great majority of VOCALOID fans/users put a few other voice synths into the VOCALOID category.

So yeah. Which ones do you like? Which ones have you used?
So everyone knows about UTAU. VOCALOID for poor-people/VOCALOID Weaboo, but it’s also the easiest to compare to VOCALOID. It’s nearly VOCALOID2 quality and doesn’t even have ver 1.0 released. Still 0.x.x numbers. Currently, Japanese is flawless and one person’s working on making perfected english. Unfortunately, because ANYONE can make a voice library, plenty of low quality, half baked UTAULOIDs exist. Bu of course, ome "companies" take time in their voices. Mainly CRViPTON. (Parody of CRYPTON) Who makes UTAU as pranks, tricking people into thinking that they’re real VOCALOIDs. The quality of the voice library is AMAZING and they’re released for use after the pranks over.
The CRViPTON UTAU so far include: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvZ5VhrRCvw:2ujmrwjy]Teto Kasane[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7yaC8Fnu4w:2ujmrwjy]Ruko Yokune[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=hhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ljfqeOb5dw:2ujmrwjy]Ritsu Namine[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1_ks6mEosI:2ujmrwjy]Tei Sukone[/url:2ujmrwjy]
English voices have also been produced. The most notable ones are: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0tNshQkhYc:2ujmrwjy]Neko Kanochi[/url:2ujmrwjy] and [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UQMDb1DF04:2ujmrwjy]Aido Feirune[/url:2ujmrwjy]

And the second best known to VOCALOID would be the MAIDLOID… I’m sure you guys know about it. 8P But on the note of the MAIDLOID, Paraoka, the one who made MAIDLOID Iku Acme’s "one-hit wonder" "ChaosMaid", has released a [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVbXG3swMAk:2ujmrwjy]demo of his new Iku song[/url:2ujmrwjy].

Last of the ‘best known’ are the MacNeBots. Seeing as VOCALOID only runs on Windows, (Unless you use MikuInstaller), companie Act2 of Japan has created virtual Vocalists for Mac OS users. The two released are: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7Gnxqkr99M:2ujmrwjy]Nana Macne[/url:2ujmrwjy] and [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FhvXCrAynY:2ujmrwjy]Coco Macne[/url:2ujmrwjy]. There are also two voices taken off the market for low quality. They’ll be re-released with an update eventually though. These two are [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvFi2K54yx8:2ujmrwjy]Coco Macne -Black-[/url:2ujmrwjy] and [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwOJWsb_GSo:2ujmrwjy]Papa Macne[/url:2ujmrwjy].

There are a few other… unloved voice synths. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-TbWd_OVyE:2ujmrwjy]LaLaVoice2001[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z9ksWqXpio:2ujmrwjy]VocalWriter[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kHk7t0D4FM:2ujmrwjy]Kuma Uta[/url:2ujmrwjy], [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Cq_I8Cka0Q:2ujmrwjy]KK Slider[/url:2ujmrwjy] and SO many more, but yeah. You guys use any?

Hi Everyone,
I have no use for any of the Japanese Vocaloids, Since I do not speak of sing Japanese. Fun to watch singing and dancing on You Tube.
Zero=G has Prima and Tonio, the Opera Vocaloids on sale for 99 bucks download. Also Leon, Lola, and Miriam for 79 bucks download.
I have no use for the opera singers, even though they have the newer editor. I do not know if you can pop sing them up in the editor.
Have not heard Big Al or Sweet Ann. Everytime I try to play a demo link for either of them, the links never work.
I would like Yamaha and Zero G to upgrade Lola, Leon, and Miriam so they would all work with the Vocaloid 2 editor.
Happy Singing

How does that have anything to do with the thread that was posted in? :U
While I completely agree with you, wouldn’t it be better to start like… a suggestions topic or something? Rather than going completely off topic in a random thread. 8P

lol.There is so no edit button on these forums. :U So… Double post!
But just so you know, Japanese VOCALOID Luka Megurine has an English voice bank, so you can use her. She’s all bilingual and stuff.
Miku Hatsune is also currently taking english lessons, but no release date is set.
You can also make fake english using Japanese VOCALOIDs, but it sounds funny, but so far, this is the best fake english.

Um… You can go to youtube and find PLENTY of Ann and Al songs.
And you seem to have forgotten about Sonika. She takes work to sound decent, but she’s not restricted to genres like Prima and Tonio are.

Hi All,
C, you did say this thread was off topic to begin with. Sonika is 99 bucks also download at zero g Japan. I am sticking with the English language singers for now.
Leon will be next for me, since I have started with Lola and Miriam. Yes, I did finally get to hear both Big Al and Sweet Ann. Ann will be my first Vocaloid 2 purchase later this year. She really does sound like a human singer.
Thanks to all the Vocaloid users who post audio and video files online. That is every helpful when you are deciding which Vocaloids to buy.
Happy Composing

Well.. yeah. XD I guess… off topic… stuff. XP

But SONiKA is not a Japanese VOCALOID. Every Zero-G VOCALOID is sold in Japan too, but Sonika is an english VOCALOID. She might be asian on her box art, but she’s a UK-based VOCALOID like all of Zero-G’s VOCALOIDs. She uses the english language as her interface.
All of the VOCALOIDs that have easy english support like LEON, LOLA and MIRIAM would be…

LEON[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU0Za_82UWQ:3vsuv6zi]LOLA[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1vxgACDki4:3vsuv6zi]MIRIAM[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URZ9QmQSWOA:3vsuv6zi]Sweet ANN[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VseHlKR4Ew8:3vsuv6zi]Prima[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYBTQsj1RLo:3vsuv6zi]Luka Megurine[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2E5xLbf4Ng:3vsuv6zi]SONiKA[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CShp6QPAgmc:3vsuv6zi]Big Al[/url:3vsuv6zi]
[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ_9Oz0pPJY:3vsuv6zi]Tonio[/url:3vsuv6zi]

And two upcoming voice libraries: ZG-V7 and Miku Hatsune (english version)

Every other VOCALOID ever can only sing in Japanese. Anyone above has an english voice library and can sing in the english language virtually flawlessly.

And You should so post some of your VOCALOID stuff. Please? :3 There’s hardly anything on the internet using LOLA or LEON and I love to hear what people make~ ^^ And When you get ANN, I wish you the best of luck with the newer program. :U It’s different… editing’s a bit harder.

Truthfully, I’m very excited to see what’ll happen with the upcoming VOCALOID3~

Hi All, C
Yes, I plan to post some Vocaloid files soon. Maybe just video the playback screen scrolling also and put some Video Clips on You Tube.

I am still experimenting with what happens to different kinds of midi files when you load them into Vocaloid. As one could guess, midi tracks that are mostly many kinds of stacked notes like chords and full drum set, get mostly erased when you remove all the overlapping notes.

If one wanted to import an entire piano solo, one would need to split or filter the piano part into different tracks, so no track would have any stacked notes or overlapping ones. Same with guitar chords or a full drumkit.

Happy Vocaloids

Thanks CF for the Links and descriptions of different Vocaloids!

I use Hatsune Miku and since I’m bilingual in Japanese and English I’m excited about Hatsune Miku in English!

Check out some of my Hatsune Miku work:
Latest tracks by Tempo-P

Has there been no new info on Vocaloids since Tonio?

We just had Namm 2011 – but nothing from Crypton, Yamaha or Zero-G?

Looks like there were a few updates in Japanese Vocaloids as you say!

The Japanese Vocaloid group have a very strange following in Japan- if you know what I mean. Although similar in taste and demeanor in the states, the extent that Japanese fans will go through for their animated fix is incomparable to their English speaking counterpart.

What I need is an American Vocaloid fan group that is still active right now. People who listen to vocaloid in the states and who are interested in Japanese culture. The community should be full of video makers, music producers, and manga artists.

Where can I find something like that on the web?

Thanks

Hi Tempo,
You might have to start your own Vocaloid Group. US Users seem to use the software but not tell anyone they are even using it.

So far this is the only active Vocaloid Forum I have found. And only one forum member here had a great website with dozens of Vocaloid audio demos up. And he lives in Spain.

Zero G does not even have a Vocaloid Forum. So I started a Vocaloid Thread there.

Happy Vocaloids
