Zero-G’s Lowest Prices Yet! Vocaloid 2 Engloid Downloads for $50

It is about that time of the year again. As part of Zero-G’s annual summer sale the Vocaloid publisher has announced their lowest prices to date. The Vocaloids Sonika, Prima, and Tonio are on sale for $50 each through the Zero-G Download Shop.

Note: This promotional pricing is ONLY through the Zero-G Download Shop. Digital downloads through each Vocaloid’s official websites [name]-vocaloid.com are NOT discounted and still retail for the $69.99 regular price.

The sale is expected to last through July. For those of you looking for the VOCALOID 1s they are no longer available to purchase as per English VOCALOID to be Discontinued, Zero-G Last Chance Sale

English VOCALOID to be Discontinued, Zero-G Last Chance Sale

With the new year around the corner and new Vocaloid 3s on the horizon I am sad to announce that Zero-G will officially be discontinuing all VOCALOID, first generation Vocaloid 1s. The English LEON, LOLA, and MIRIAM from Zero-G will no longer be available for download purchase after December 31, 2013 with physical copies limited to whatever quantity already in stock.

In an email statement sent to customers who have purchased Vocaloid products from their Download Store Zero-G stated the following:

Until the end of December 2013, you can still buy any of the three Vocaloid 1 download products LEON, LOLA and MIRIAM. However, on 1 January they will finally be ‘retired’ to that great Vocaloid playground in the sky…

Unlike the Vocaloid 2 products Prima Sonika and Tonio, or the Vocaloid 3 product Avanna, these Vocaloid 1 products Leon Lola and Miriam only support Windows XP officially, though many users have reported they do work well on Windows 7.

This announcement coincides with the recent Microsoft notice that they will be discontinuing support for Windows XP, the only OS officially supported by VOCALOID. After 10 years of VOCALOID I doubt this is the last we will see of LEON, LOLA, or MIRIAM. Producers who have them will still be able to use the software but new purchases going forward will be impossible.

Update: All VOCALOID1s have been discontinued.

Fear not however as along with the discontinuation notice Zero-G is also putting them on sale at 60% off with all V1 downloads being priced at $39.99. Get them while you still can! The full Zero-G notification is embedded after the break.
