We may be hearing a lot more Vocaloid music here in the states very soon. Yamaha was showing off their new Cyber Diva (a native English singing Vocaloid) At NAMM 2015 and their great new integration with Steinberg’s Cubase Digital Audio Workstation. Vocaloid has an obsessive cult following in Asia and parts of Europe. Will we be seeing the same thing happen in the USA? Vocaloid 4 was just released and has a total of 5 voices (if you include 3rd party voicebanks) so far in.
It’s actually kinda crazy it took this long to get noticed over here, but I’m welcoming it either way! Looking forward to hearing more from Cyber Diva and Vocaloid 4!
