Installing Vocaloid2 Folders to differient drives?

Hello all,

I’m about to install Vocaloid 2 on my PC using Cubase 4.1.
I normally put all my sample library content on my F drive and the program/VST Plugin in my C drive.

So doing the complete install:

Library of Prima……F Drive
Vocaloid2 VSTi ………CDrive

Vacaloid 2 Expression Database………? Is this samle data or more program data…. C or F drive?

Or…..would it be safer to follow the default install/authorization and then move the folders later.

Any help with this greatly appreciated.


PS is this the only teck support place for Vocaloid? I tried emailing Zero-G but so far have had no reply. I can’t find their Tech support web address on their site…..anyone else having this problem with Zero-G?

Why does need to divide the installation in different drivers?

It’s advisable that you do an installation default.

Hi Bob, I also like to store all my data & sound libraries on a second hard drive. So when I installed Vocaloid 2 (Prima) I changed the location of the sounds & expression to a folder on my F drive, which seems to work fine.
The only problem I encountered was related to my operating system Vista, if you are running Vista you should read my previous post in this forum entitled ‘Prima "cannot open database" instalation error’.
As far as support goes, I’ve been using Vocaloid since version 1 came out & I’ve found these forums very useful for information & support, particularly as some of the development team post replies here sometimes. I see that Giuseppe has already replied, as I understand it he produced several of the demo’s of vocaloid which I have to say are really good. You may also get help from Anders who I believe is part of the Zero G development team and very helpful. I have also contacted the Zero G support team through this e-mail address: and had some helpful replies from Dom Keeffe.
If you are new to Vocaloid (it sounds as though you are) you will probably find it difficult & time consuming trying to get good sounding results, but I suggest that you stick with. Although it can’t replace live vocals at this stage in it’s development, if you need to hear what a song is going to sound like & you don’t have access to a vocalist or if you need additional backing vocals, it can be really useful.
I would be very interested to hear your opinion of it once you have given it a try. Good luck!
