In a move probably in preperation for Vocaloid 3 Yamaha has updated their official Vocaloid website at Vocaloid.com. Sadly this update was for their Japanese language homepage only. Vocaloid (English) and all the bookmarks to their English language child site are now dead, seemingly lost in transition.
Maybe it is for the best. English Vocaloid.com’s last update was in 2009 with Sonika’s release and has remained largely neglected. As far as Yamaha was concerned Big Al and Tonio didn’t exist. When, and if, the English site ever comes back, hopefully Yamaha will keep up with the Engloids and at least give us the time of day to update it once or twice a year.
Here is to you Yamaha, and Vocaloid 3 which is just around the corner! Don’t forget about the Engloids when it is finally released. I know Zero-G & PowerFX are counting on you for an English version of the editor at least.
