Vocaloid 2

(One of the first “virtual singer”, Hatsune Miku)

 I was a little slow to pick up this neat application. Vocaloid is a human voice synthesizer developed by Yamaha some years ago that will change the need of human vocals in music composition. With an “authentic human voice” Virtual Singer, all you need to do is to provide the lyrics and the music, and the singer will sing to the tune you want. The first instalment featured a female sound library, Hatsune Miku. After some searching, I found out her name defines a specific meaning: Hatsu ( First), Ne ( Sound), and Miku (未来 Future).

With such computer application, I guess composers will have second thoughts of hiring backup vocals (even lead vocals!) for his/her music.

 

Original music composed for Vocaloid

 

 

She can even sing a Finnish tune, Ievan Polkka.

 

And she sings my fav song, Fact of Fact ~ Resolution (Kotoko)

 

She tried to sing in English. Well, she's not "trained" to sing English lyrics but it is still cute anyways.

  1. the reason the japanese kotoko song sounds so good is because its being taken from the original artist, who sings japanese, and has a high voice that matches miku’s closely anyway. Try using a studio-recorded song with it, it will sound good provided you arent using a man’s voice.
