The wait is finally over! For those that have been waiting for it PowerFX/VocaTone’s newest bi-lingual Vocaloid is finally released. Right Hio can only be purchased as a digital downloads but Bil Bryant of PowerFX assures us that the physical DVD edition should be in stock for international shipping some time next week.
Yohioloid’s bi-lingual nature hasn’t seemed to have affected his pricing with his digital download price comparable to Oliver on release at $129. The physical edition is expect to be priced at $149, but no word as of yet if an Yohioloid + Editor DVD combo pack will be made available. For those interested in just the DVD of the Vocaloid 3 Editor it is available for purchase here
The last batch of demos before his launch include Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” as covered by Giuseppe and a Japanese demo of Kiroro’s “Mirai E” as covered by Alberto. You can find the two demos embedded after the break. Expect an in-depth column on Hio later this week as Kodakami gets some hands-on time with PowerFX’s latest Vocaloid.
