The last couple of weeks for me, Miku has received all my attention, from her the style of her outfits, the music she makes, music videos, & most of all the sheer amount of content that has been produced with her and will continue to be produced.
Yes, I'm talking about Hatsune Miku, the Japanese popular Vocaloid mascot. In the past weeks I have listened to her music & watched lots of her videos over & over again; not to mention the vast number of genres that she has produced. Well if you dont know by now, a Vocaloid is a synthesized voice using a computer program called 'VOCALOIDX' with "X" meaning the version number of the program, as of today's date it is up to version 4, so the newest one being named 'VOCALOID4' or 'V4' for short. Aside from 4 versions of the program, there theres an entire list of Vocaloid singers, or voices. Some of the top Vocaloid voices are AI, Kagamine Rin & Len, Megurine Luka, Kaito, Mayu, & the list goes on & on. Here is a list of a few Vocaloid Singers & there are many more.
Then there are the music videos, some high end ones are made with professional equipment, but theoretically you can make videos at home with some basic equipment & programs, now obviously the better the computer the better it will look, but most computer would be just fine. There have been some nice videos made by people, This is one for Dameyo, this one is for Gokuraku Jodo, & one of my personal favorite, IA - See The Lights.
I am currently learning how to use Vocaloid3 and am bearly getting started, I eventually hope to make a decent Vocaloid song, if not, then atleast I hope to make a video!
I will leave you with some of good Vocaloid videos.
Hatsune Miku Live
Promise with Rin
