Hatsune Miku is easily the most popular vocaloid from Crypton Future Media with her infectious and catchy songs and flash dress sense. The software that generates the vocaloid voice is only available in Japanese but that’s all due to change with the news the software will be receiving an English release.
The software will be made available online for download on August 31st and will set you back $US150. You actually get quite a bit for the price, the package consists of the vocal editor Piapro Studio VSTi, more than 200 virtual instruments and PreSonus Studio One Artist Piapro Edition. Here’s a quick demo of the English version running the track “Coming Together” in English.
There’s also a longer 2nd demo of the English software with the track, “Let The Music Speak”, which showcases Miku with a larger English vocabulary.
