Earlier today, Giuseppe-P, in association with VocaloidMaster and VocaTone, released a new demo with our first official look at Yohioloid’s English voicebank. The song is a cover of ‘Bodies’ by Robbie Williams.
In a commentary concerning the demo, Giuseppe states that he felt that Yohioloid had a lot in common with Robbie Williams’ style. He comments that both their voices are very versatile, and that finds the timbre of their voices very lovely.
He goes on to say that Yohioloid has some very similar qualities to Sweet Ann in that they both, when used properly, can be used for almost any kind of song. He states that his initial views changed radically after getting some hands-on time with the voicebank, asserting that it “would be a great Vocaloid”.
Beyond that, Giuseppe comments on some of the technical aspects of the voicebank and its recording process. He shares how difficult it is to record a voicebank, and how some Vocaloid sometimes end with less-than-stellar results because of that.
He adds that Yohio seemed differently-recorded than any Vocaloid he has previously worked with, with samples of better quality than any Vocaloid (English or Japanese) that he has ever worked with before.
Giuseppe goes on to explain some of technical challenges he faced creating this particular demo and how he wanted it to sound as “natural and real as possible” before finally ending his message with the following teaser:
The voicebank is coming soon[™]. There are more demos on their way, with some due as soon as next week, and he can’t wait to see what his fellow Producers do with this amazing Vocaloid.
