[b:mh6vws55]Key Features of VOCALOID2[/b:mh6vws55]
VOCALOID2 is a new version of VOCALOID, which includes major improvements in usability and synthesis quality. Here are key features:

[b:mh6vws55]New GUI[/b:mh6vws55]
VOCALOID Editor (score editing tool) of VOCALOID2 has a cool new look with improved user functionality.

[b:mh6vws55]A much more realistic and natural sounding vocal[/b:mh6vws55]
The synthesis engine of VOCALOID2 uses a different signal processing technique from Version 1, creating a clearer and more natural vocal.

[b:mh6vws55]Realtime Keyboard Performance (VST Instrument)[/b:mh6vws55]
Written lyrics can be assigned a note by touch of a keyboard. Now you can “sing” using a keyboard.

Much easier to use functionalities are newly implemented, which reduce workloads in creating your music. Existing functionalities are also improved.

Pictures look cool.

It seems you can now more easily see which icon is clicked.
The light/dard grey of v 1.2 is poor.
