Following the news that there will be two new Vocaloid that will be released along with Miki, information from Hatsune Miku Miku blog has finally revealed the identities of the new Vocaloid as more information will be provided right after the break so do continue reading!
“Kaai Yuki”, one of the two new Vocaloid pictured as a elementary school girl, recreates a girl’s pure and lovely singing voice and actual elementary school students have been hired to produce the voice for her while “Hiyama Kiyoteru”, pictured as a “sensei” or teacher, reproduces the voice of an adult male, one with true talents and ability. Teacher Vocaloid “VOCALOID2 Hiyama Kiyoteru” is an outstanding VOCALOID influenced by an good singer’s voice based on VOCALOID development. With a stored extensive library, new methods of sound recording allows for high precision when reproducing the singing voice. Unique to adult males, the treble is clean and you can make a healing/comforting singing voice using a deep voice.
Here are some song demos using the new Vocaloid software on Nico Nico Douga:
They will be released together with Miki on December 4th 2009 at a retail price of 15,000 (15,750 with taxes included) yen each. You can head over to AH-Software to view more information about Miki, Kaai Yuki and Hiyama Kiyoteru.
