In a surprise thread on VocaloidOtaku.net, VocaTone CEO Anders has officially announced that Oliver will be released on December 21st, 2011. That’s tomorrow, people! In addition, the administration of VocaloidOtaku will be sending offer codes to all members which can be redeemed for a 25% discount off the retail price. For those people who wish to take advantage of this offer, please check your Private Message inbox or register on VocaloidOtaku.net.
The retail price for Oliver download is: $129, €99, £95.
And for the “boxed version”: $149, €125, £109.
Keep in mind that this price tag is before the 25% VocaloidOtaku member discount (which amounts to approximately $96.75). Details for where the purchace can be made are not given, but it can be assumed that tomorrow will hold that news.
As can be expected, Oliver will come with a stripped down version of the VOCALOID3 editor, with a full version available from Yamaha directly, and hopefully from PowerFX/VocaTone as well.
Update: Coupon codes should be in your PM page. The offer is valid until January 31, 2012.
