Yamaha has announced a version 2.0 of Vocaloid, which includes major improvements in usability and synthesis quality. Zero-G has also announced that it will be releasing its first Vocaloid2 based product in Spring 2007 - PRIMA, a Classical soprano singer.

Vocaloid2 key features:

  • New GUI: The Vocaloid Editor (score editing tool) of Vocaloid2 has a new look with improved user functionality.
  • A much more realistic and natural sounding vocal: The synthesis engine of Vocaloid2 uses a different signal processing technique from Version 1, creating a clearer and more natural vocal.
  • Realtime Keyboard Performance (VST Instrument): Written lyrics can be assigned a note by touch of a keyboard. Now you can "sing" using a keyboard.
  • New functionality and improvements: Much easier to use functionality implemented, which reduces workload in creating music. Existing functionality is also improved.
  • Note auditioning: If you press a note, singing with lyrics and pitch will be assigned to the note. Instantly check lyrics and notes.
  • Transparent control track: Control track for controlling timbre is transparent, so you can check two parameters at once.
  • Toggling between Playback and Rendering: You can specify playback/rendering mode for each track. By rendering the finished track, you can reduce CPU load in playback. Maximum number of tracks is 16.
  • Expression control: You can easily specify musical expression (attack and vibrato) with this intuitive user interface.

As with version 1.0, Vocaloid2 will not be released as a Yamaha product. It will be released as a package of Vocaloid singer libraries developed by third party licensees which includes Yamaha's software, and will be sold by the licensee. In Spring 2007 Zero-G will be releasing PRIMA, a Classical soprano singer (more info about PRIMA will appear on the Zero-G website soon). Zero-G hopes to demonstrate the voice at the Frankfurt Musikmesse in late March 2007, but it will not be ready for release until later in the Spring.
