Transcript of Vocaloid Project

Hatsune Miku's name is a fusion of (初)"Hatsu" which means first and (音)"ne", which means sound in Japanese, while her first

name(ミク)"Miku"is read like nanori;
which is future.

Normally nanori is read as (未来)"mirai" thus displaying where"The First Sound from the Future." is derived from. The Voice Of The Future A Step Towards Reality The updated software pack gives Hatsune Miku (the face of the vocaloid line), much more human-like emotions like happiness, sadness, etc. As well as soft and dark features in her songs. This updated software allows listeners to connect more as they would with a human singer. Fans will be able to sense the feelings in her songs in her dark and soft versions.

With this, the feel of Miku's voice is further improved, allowing critics to sooth their main complain of the sound being too machine like. After the Vocaloid 2 engine from Yamaha came out, Crypton Future Media started developing the third and soon to be most well known Vocaloid Hatsune Miku. Miku's voice was made by taking some samples from Saki Fujita(who is a voice actress) at a certain pitch/tone . The different samples contained a single Japanese pronunciation when put together, will make words,sentences, and phrases. The pitch of the samples can and will be altered by the synthesizer engine. Hatsune Miku was first releasesd in August 31st under the idea of "An android diva in the near-future world where songs are lost." She was nominated for an award in the "All About" awards in 2007, which she later won.Later Crypton Future Media picked up an BCN award in 2008 for their productions, with their sales reaching a 211% increase thanks to several products (One of which being Hatsune Miku).Other awards that Miku won were "Digital Content" AMD award,"Good Design Award 2008", and the BCN AWARD 2009.

Due to the massive usage from both Japanese and English producers, Crypton decided to make a English voice bank for Miku so Japanses the Producers can try new styles and kind of create songs that also aim towards the western adiuence as the western prodcer can make Miku cover some of their favorite english songs. Miku, the Rising Star Miku gained her popularity due to her easy usage compared to Kaito and Meiko. Thus more people are able to have fun and use their creativity with her. Miku's popularity made her so loved that soon people started to use her in ads/ commercials such as Google Chrome and Toyota Thanks to Google, everyone around the world has been giving the ability to easy access to her latest updates and songs. A few special adjustments here and there How have we been impacted? One of the main contributors to Miku's rise to fame is Nico Nico Douga. Nico Nico Douga is a Japanese equivalent of Youtube. The reason on why nico nico douga is a big contributor to Miku's rise to fame is due to the fact that soon after Miku was released Nico Nico Douga users started putting up videos with songs made through the usage of her sound bank. According to Crypton a video had a SD (super deformed) Hatsune Miku holding a Welsh onion, the character's name is called “Hachune Miku.” and in the video she was singing “levan Polkka. This video is the reason behind people associating Miku with a leek or a spring onion. This video showed that that there is more then one way of applying the software and the potential is almost limitless when applied to mulimedia
