Friend of the blog, José Lastras, also known as MasterVocaloid or Giuseppe-P has recorded and sequenced a new Vocaloid prototype named “Lucía”. Describing her as “sweet” and “pretty” he released a this playlist to showcase the voicebank’s capabilities. For art end he commissioned two character design concepts from artists Aki Glancy and Riisago respectively.
In the Facebook announcement revealing the project he said he has been in contact with the various companies that are licensed to publish voicebanks (Power-FX, Zero-G, and VoctroLabs) but for the moment they didn’t seem interested in selling it at the moment with Yamaha’s licencing costs being cited as the main limiting factor.
He is asking for feedback and for fans to help spread the word about “Lucía”. Hopefully in the future we will see this Vocaloid on sale. You can read and comment on the full release @ Giuseppe-Ps original Spanish-language Facebook post.
