By now some of you may already know about Vocaloid but do you know vocaloid is actually a program that use voice to simulate real singer to make music? I used to think it was some gal singing at a studio covering for Miku but I was wrong.
I am going to share with you the soul of Miku Hatsune that may change your point of view totally. If you wish to continue your fantasy of Miku as a real person somewhere, you may want to stop reading, it still not too late.
You are still reading this? Here's the magic behind Miku? It maybe scary some and this maybe your final Fantasy as Miku is doing a LIVE for Final Fantasty Soundtrack Melody of life in Japanese. Click on the video and see the truth for yourself.
Updated on 15 Sept 2010: The video was discontinued by youtube... :( So here's the vocal of one I find in replacement.
That was Miku program which was arrange flawlessly. The vocaloid program was developed by Crypton Future Media which utilizes Yamaha's Vocaloid2 technology with specially recorded vocals of voice actors.
So as wonderful it may sound, do remember it is just a simulation of a program not a real person. The true skill is in the master composer hands. So after you know the truth, how do you feel?
Easter Egg: The first male English Vocaloid program is name Leon. Hey! I am a Vocaloid. Maybe I should draw an animation version for that. :P
By the way, they are now trying to send Miku off to Venus by voting for that project.
