INTERNET Co., Ltd. has now unveiled a website for the upcoming Megpoid (GUMI) English VOCALOID3 library release as well as a full version of the demo song “You Are the Reason”. A snippet of the song was previously posted as the first demo of the English soundbank, and the full version even includes a portion of GUMI talking. According to the website, online preorders open on January 15 via the VOCALOID STORE, and the library is priced at 10800 JPY (before taxes). The release also comes with the FormantShift VST plugin from the same company (although registered users of software packages from INTERNET also get access to this plugin for free). The Japanese website indicates that people who register their software before the end of March (and have a Japanese address) also are eligible to receive an A4 plastic sheet protector with a Megpoid English illustration on it mailed to them. Lastly, there is now a page detailing English character usage guidelines for INTERNET’s VOCALOID characters.
UPDATE 2: The library-only package version is now available via the English VOCALOID STORE for preorders; it is 135 USD for the software and 32 USD for shipping.
