Vocaloid is a technology and application software developed by Yamaha that enables users to synthesize authentic-sounding singing by just typing in the melody and the lyrics of a song. Vocaloid 2 singer, just released by Crypton, features the voice of Hatsune Miku, a 16 years old virtual Singer. According to her official bio, she is 158 cm tall, weights 42 Kg and loves pop and dance music.
This software is very cool!!
This technology is very good. In the future, we might be able to plug in any person's voice to this software. If we have a deceased singer that we really love, we can use this software to listen to his/her voice again. We'll always have new songs from that singer. :D
I do have one concern. The songs generated by the software may not have enough emotions. The software might be good for fast songs, but slow songs generated by the software will have no emotions at all. :(
