The project was first hinted at early in the month of February 2013,
then officially announced in the following month of March that same
More information was published in volume 10 of the magazine "VOCALOID
wo Tanoshimou", which came out on March 11. The singers were picked
out of 40 voices, two being picked fairly quickly. Over 100 hours was
spent recording them.
The ability to create songs that haven't been possible until now. The highest quality audio due to thorough quality checking. Ease of use for beginners and experts alike.
To back up his first point, Seto mentioned that this was the first
time a compound sound bank consisting of three male singers had been
released, and consequently the sound bank supported trios, duets,
backing harmony, and unison out of the box.
Regarding his second point on audio quality, Seto outlined the process
for the creation of the sound bank. Previous sound banks were created
by first deciding on a person, and then recording his or her voice.
However, this was no guarantee that the person’s voice would be
suitable for Vocaloid. Keeping this in mind, Yamaha started with a
total of forty candidates in their teens and twenties, and recorded
temporary sound banks for all of them to test the sound quality before
deciding on who the final three people would be. For these three,
Yamaha made them undergo over a half-year’s worth of "training" in
practicing to read the "incantations" from which the phonemes could be
extracted. Seto noted that this was because these incantations were
very different from what would normally be on a dialogue script, but
after training, the vocalists would be able to recite it all. The
final stage of the process was that the staff at the Yamaha Research
and Development Center worked to put the data together into a sound
For the final point, Seto highlighted several features of the product
that he believed made it easy for both beginners and experts to use.
First, it comes with a "Job Plugin" that makes it easier to make vocal
data for groups of singers. Second, the sound bank is described as
sounding good even without tuning, although further tuning improves it
even further. Finally, the software package comes with a how-to
booklet, as well as tutorial videos to assist people who are new to
