VOCALOID3 Editor Available for Purchase
It seems Bplats, Inc., under the direction of Yamaha, finally finished the updates to the international version of VocaloidStore.com (English).
Among the products they list is the full version of the VOCALOID3 Editor for digital download. So for those of you with Vocaloid 2 voicebanks and are interested in using the V3 Editor and seeing how it handles your existing Engloids it is available now for $129 USD @ VocaloidStore.com (English).
Judging from all the Yamaha badging and the presence of the Yamaha plugin directory it seems Bplat’s VocaloidStore.com will be their official storefront of Yamaha and in the future and Vocaloid.com will be regulated to a purely informational role.
Speaking of Vocaloid.com we are STILL missing the English Version of that site.
Update: Do note that that while VocaloidStore.com does have an English International Webstore, is affiliated with Yamaha, and is their official retailer, it is not the ‘official’ distributor for North America.
Yamaha USA has ceded those rights to East West’s SoundsOnline.com. We have reached out to East West Communications but there is no word as of yet when and if they will excercise those rights and begin selling the Vocaloid 3 Editor software.
If reports on VO are to be believed even they themselves are unsure on this that matter. As of now VocaloidStore.com seems like the best (and only) place for anyone to get the Vocaloid 3 Editor.
Update 2: The followup article Vocaloid 3 Editor, Yamaha, & SoundsOnline Followup has been posted.
