In an unprecedented move PowerFX has negotiated an official distribution deal for the physical release of the Full VOCALOID 3 Editor to the west as well as a discounted Oliver DVD Bundle that includes both the Oliver V3 voicebank and the full VOCALOID 3 editor.
Pricing for their physical products are as follows:
Yesterday, Baggagelizard uploaded the song that showed me how poorly I’ve been using Oliver in my own works. From its subtle ambiance, to its determined drive, this song delivers more than it promises. I’ve heard quite a few VOCALOID originals that try to achieve this feel, but aren’t able to nail down that difficult combination of melancholy and drive.
In the end, the best way to describe it would be to just say, “watch the video above!”.
All Zero-G Vocaloid 1s & 2s are on Sale this Month
For those that missed it Zero-G kicked off February with massive month-long sale on a lot of their download products, this includes the downloadable versions of all their Vocaloid 1 & 2s. Pricing for their Vocaloid 1s is $49.99 and their Vocaloid 2s are $89.99.
Sonika, Prima, and Tonio are available for at their respective websites:
After months of waiting the most anticipated Engloid ever to be released is finally out. As a thank you for all their avid fans PowerFX & VocaTone have coupon codes for VocaloidOtaku members. If you have an account, you can find it in your private message inbox!
Note that these prices are for the Oliver voicebank and “Lite” editor only. If you want the fully featured V3 editor you must purchase it separately from Yamaha. For those of you who already have the full V3 editor be sure to grab the update to v188.8.131.52 that was released yesterday.
The main difference between the “Lite” and “Full” editor is that the Lite version is limited to 1 track of 17 bars for MIDI import, and reverb as the only vocal effect.
Beyond that I don’t think there is much more I can add. It seems Koda has flown away with someone but when he gets back expect a Koda’s Kolumn entry concerning him and VocaRant coverage from me as songs are released for him.
