October 21 was an important day for SeeU, the Vocaloid created by SBS Artech: she is one of the first native VOCALOID3 voicebanks, she was released in Korea, and had three new demo songs revealed. Follow us after the break for all the information, including on the Western release of SeeU.
She’s here! The much anticipated Korean Vocaloid, whose first (unofficial) demo song, “I=Fantasy” (short version), had been revealed back on the June 8th. “Secret Party,” was released on October 21 by SBS Artech. As of now, she isn’t available outside Korea, but SBS Artech said in an October 23 English-language tweet “After about a month, we will be sold through eBay. Starting in North America, expanding to Europe~ Thank you~!”, and according to an October 12th tweet by SBS Artech (in Japanese) via SeeU’s personal account, they are preparing a Japanese release for before the end of the year.
SeeU, or more formally SV01 SeeU, is a 17 year old girl based on Kim Tahi, an ex-member of the K-pop girl band Glam. She has both a Japanese and Korean voicebank, and the former can be used to make her sing in heavily accented English. Her avatar was designed by Korean artist KKUEM. More information on SeeU can be found on our previous article.
