Following information from the Crypton blog, it seems Crypton has just started on an experimental project called “Project if…”, this concept will be different from the popular and successful CV (Character Vocal) series and hopefully something unique and special will be coming out of this. And in the sample video below you can hear the vocals provided by a child singer singing to the theme song of “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea” for this project.
Also, an older news also from the Crypton blog but it’s been made known that Crypton will be updating Hatsune Miku’s voice in celebration of her second birthday. So far three voice samples have been released and you can go over to Crypton’s blog to listen to the new voices. Also, you can view this video below in which Miku’s soft voice β-version is used for the 2M Mix of Black★Rock Shooter.
These two projects will be developed concurrently together with the male Vocaloid VA project, so there’s a lot to look forward to from Crypton in the future. =)
