We are proud to announce that Zero-G have released their much anticipated Vocaloid 4 voicebanks “Dex” and “Daina” male and female virtual singers. Though released as a pair and not available as a bundle Zero-G are offering them at a special introductory price.
For a limited time both Dex and Daina will be on sale for $49.99, $20 off their MSRP of $69.99 , making the pair less than $100 total if bought right now. Get them while you can both as Vocaloid and as a deal, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Without much fanfare, not even a tweet on their official twitter, PowerFX has released Vocaloid 4. In a surprise turn of events on the official product listing and latest demo by VocaloidMaster (embedded below) there is no official character artwork. Instead, they feature a set of stage curtains being drawn and the text “Presenting Ruby”.
This strange release decision is likely related to the controversy previously covered in Behind the Scenes: PowerFX & Vocaloid 4 Ruby. With so much furor and pushback over the AnimeExpo reveal event’s character art PowerFX may have chosen to sidestep the controversy by not including anything whatsoever. Its unclear whether the software splash is similarly art-less as none of the Engloids.Info staff have purchased the product yet.
VocaEuro reports that HyperJapan, a convention in London England, is going to be hosting not one, but two different Vocaloid events totaling 5 concerts across 3 days. They are “free” to anyone attending the convention but space will be limited so do arrive early. The full schedule for events can be found here.
Mirai no Neiro Sessions: Friday, Saturday (Morning), Sunday
IA ROCKS Sessions: Saturday (Afternoon), Sunday
In a surprise turn of events the Yamaha USA has added physical editions of the VOCALOID 4 Editor, VOCALOID 4 Editor for Cubase, and Cyber Diva to their webstore under “Music Production Software”. This is the first instance of Yamaha incorporating Vocaloid with their famous Music Production Tool lineup which includes synthesizers, stage pianos, pixers, pocket recorders, interfaces, studio monitors, midi controllers, and plug-in boards.
Vocaloid Ruby, previously confirmed for release today has been delayed. Release date is still unconfirmed but she is expected to release “any day within the next 10 days” according to the most recent tweet by Ruby’s Developer Syo. Beyond disclosing the most recent release info Syo also confirmed that a physical release is planned, but there would be some trailing time for physical production to ramp up.
