Yamaha Ends V3 Editor Distribution and VOCALOID2 Library Import Support
In a continuation of Yamaha’s consolidation of power and the closure of Vocaloid Store there is no longer any legal way to acquire new, digital versions, of the Vocaloid 3 Editor software. The only way to acquire the V3 editor is limited to previously published physical editions and physical bundles.
With the end of Vocaloid 3 Editor is also the end of the VOCALOID2 Library Import tool.
In their latest Japanese-language support notice Yamaha has announced that they are planning to drop support of the importer and will no longer issue any new import serial codes. They advise customers that have previously bought the Vocaloid 3 Editor and need import serials to contact them as soon as possible.
Yamaha still neglecting Westerners. Still no sign of English Vocaloid NET & Vocaloid Shop.
An English version of Vocaloid NET & Vocaloid Shop has been promised for the last year but no release is in sight. With the closure of the English Vocaloid Store it leaves many Western users in limbo with no native access to the portal for Editor Plugins, technical documentation, and various Bplats, Inc. developed Vocaloid such as Macne Nana (English).
