    The Vocaloid Thread

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer application, [which] enables users to synthesize singing by typing in lyrics and melody. It uses synthesizing technology with specially recorded vocals of voice actors or singers. To create a song, the user must input the melody and lyrics. A piano roll type interface is used to input the melody and the lyrics can be entered on each note. The software can change the stress of the pronunciations, add effects such as vibrato, or change the dynamics and tone of the voice. Each Vocaloid is sold as "a singer in a box" designed to act as a replacement for an actual singer. The software is available in English and Japanese, although a Chinese version was produced for Sonika.
    I never expected to like songs sung by a computer program, but it's hard to avoid the Vocaloid fever these days since there are countless of anime fanvideos that adapt the songs and the PV animation. Feel free to post your favorite Vocaloid songs, a good anime/manga rendition of the original, and perhaps share your own if you created a tune yourself.

    Here are two of my faves:

    World's End Dancehall
    Matryoshka

    Re: The Vocaloid Thread

    I wonder if any professional artists have used Vocaloids in their songs other than Sound Horizon.

    Around the 3:00 mark.


    Bonus: KIDS REACT to Hatsune Miku

    I also like the cover a russian girl did of Hatsune Mikus "Love Is War".


    and then there's Miku & Luka's magnet.


    aaand "Sweetiex2" which is, by the way, based on a real story.

    A must listen! Instantly fell in love with this one.

    edit: because this is my first time watching the video..
    a lot of work must have been put into this.

    I just realized toni posted it already. Anyway, I was listening to this because it was sent by my friend and I really like it so..

    Re: The Vocaloid Thread

    One of the best artists I've found is AvTechno, his stuff is amazing! Does kinda like a techno-pop styled songs for most of the vocaloids, but DYE is one of my absolute favourites from him.



    Another one of my faves is by a guy called yuyoyuppe, a song called Aventure.

    Re: The Vocaloid Thread

    Is anyone familiar with or have used MikuMikuDance? It's really cool that you can not only make up songs but can create dance moves as well. What I really like about it is that there's the option to make one's own model so I've seen some really cool videos on Niconico featuring manga characters. My favourite are the ONE PIECE videos because a lot of them are really well done!

    Re: The Vocaloid Thread

    I knew of Vocaloid since long ago, but never really tried listening to them. Lately I'm kind of obsessed with supercell and their leader ryo, and I found out he originally used Hatsune Miku for his first few arrangements. One of my favorites is also a collaboration with Miku:



    Sooo awesome.

    While I find the idea of using synthesizer of voices extracted from human's voice to sing the lyrics is strange, it's quite an interesting finding, lol. I guess I may try some of Vocaloid songs in the future. There seems so many though, I may need a database. XD
