VY2V3 is an update of the VY2 male VOCALOID2 soundbank to the VOCALOID3 engine; additional recordings were made to improve the quality of the voice, and the product actually comes with two separate sound banks: a “Standard” sound bank as well as a “Falsetto” sound bank. VY2V3 is set to be released on October 19, with the standalone version priced at 9800 JPY and the Starter Pack at 17800 JPY. VocaListener is a software system that automatically tunes the VOCALOID synthesis engine to mimic a particular vocal recording, following the nuances of the original singer. It has been in development as a VOCALOID3 Job Plugin and has now received a release date of October 19 at a price point of 19800 JPY. In addition to automatically performing parameter adjustments, the plugin also allows the user to manually make tweaks as well.
