If you think of it as a perfect vocalist, then that\'s just a silly idea anyway...no shortage of singers in the world.
But if you think of it as something new and unique, and realize that this is a \"singing synthesizer\"...then it\'s really pretty amazing. There will be a lot of cool ways to integrate this truly original \"voice\" into modern compositions....especially when you take off the chains of thinking purely in \"real\" terms.
Why should it be real after all....it\'s a synthetic voice. And a very expressive one at that. It will be very interesting to see how this develops!
I think that VOCALOID is great goodie for electric music - where you dont´need or dont want \"real\" voice. But for some serious singing there is no hope that you could use it... [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
I hear very, very distinct possiblities with this. Hopefully it has synthesis shaping capabilities and isn\'t just a playback synth. The abilty to shape the tonal characteristics might open up a huge vista.
Will it be available as a downloadable programme demo?
Any ideas on pricing yet?
A soprano vox would also be very welcome in the future.
I think it will be very interesting to hear what comes from these new instruments 6 months to a year down the line after many different users get their hands on them...Not to mention how this technology will improve and develop over the next few years...
