Meet the Vocaloids

You’ve met Miku already, now meet the rest of Crypton’s creations.

(Part 2 of VOCALOID-ism)

We’ll use the Macross Frontier song, Seikan Hikou, to sample the voices, so you can have an idea of how their voices sound like (at least, when they’re being used well).

This is the Hatsune Miku version:

First off, it’s Crypton’s first VOCALOID, MEIKO!

MEIKO

  • Name: MEIKO
  • Voice Data: Meiko Haigo
  • Release Date: November 05, 2004

Next is Crypton’s first and only (so far) male VOCALOID, KAITO.

KAITO

  • Name: KAITO
  • Voice Data: Naoto Fuuga
  • Release Date: February 14, 2006

Hatsune Miku was released afterwards in 2007, and Kagamine Rin was announced a few months later. Len would be announced a month later as part of the whole voice package. All 3 characters were drawn by Kei, so major improvement in art quality here.

Kagamine Rin/Len

  • Name: Kagamine Rin & Len (left to right)
  • Voice Data: Asami Shimoda
  • Release Date : December 27, 2007 (Original) ; July 18, 2008 (Act.2)

Rin

Len

Let’s not forget Internet Co.’s creation, Gacktpoid! This character’s official art was drawn by Kentarou Miura.

Gakupo Kamui (AKA Gacktpoid)

  • Name: Gakupo Kamui
  • Voice Data: Gackt Camui
  • Release Date : July 31, 2008

No Seikan Hikou, so this’ll have to do:

Under the Darkness

There. That should cover all of the major Japanese VOCALOIDs. Maybe one day I’ll find the time to post PRIMA or something.

Maybe.

Up next: Fan-made Mikus!

    Gacktpoid doesn’t sound too bad, even if he looks @#$%ing gay…

    Yea, Gakupo does have that..-shudders- strange quality to him.
    But he’s not as worse as Kamaito, who’s a drag queen.
