Yamaha announced today on Vocaloid Net, Yamaha’s public facing (Japanese) Vocaloid portal, that they will be closing Vocaloid Store and that a replacement creatively named “Vocaloid Shop” will be launching some time late May.
The announcement is short on details on the exactly what the difference will be beyond that Yamaha will be continuing their existing relationship with Bplats Ltd. and as with the now defunct Vocaloid Store, the new Vocaloid Shop will be managed and operated under licence to Bplats Ltd.
At the time of press VocaloidStore.com leads to a null DNS and Shop.VocaloidStore.com is still operating. No word yet on how this operating change will affect the English VocaloidStore which remains up for the time being.
