I think I'm going to just buy Vocaloid 4 for Cubase and Cyber Diva off of ebay now, instead of waiting for Yamaha's uncertain decision to sell it to the US or not. That's silly to me. So in this case I feel the ebay seller you listed should be rewarded for making this available to people in the US.
Well first off all you can always download Cyber Diva at the Vocaloid english store. I think that would be the cheapest option. Second no matter if you get both try to get a little discount from the guy. I got it after whining about toll and tax etc.
I don't know if I'm the right one to ask about the quality of Cyber Diva because this is my first Vocaloid and I'm not sure what to expect. You can watch the demos of Cyber Diva on youtube (you probably did). I haven't had enough time to play with it to give you a realistic opinion.
My experience right now is that I'm not that impressed. She sound very nasal even though I tried to correct it in the editor. This could also be due to my lack of experience and time to adjust her voice so I will give "her" the benifit of my doubts for now.
What is worse (and I don't know if I did something wrong in Cubase) that she seems to be out of tune.
If this is because of the Cubase Editor or the Cyber Diva library I don't know but I simply had to adjust the pitch in the setting. She was pitched too low. I don't know if this is a bug or if I mistakenly did something wrong in Cubase 8 or Cubase Vocaloid Editor (Cubase is latest version 8.0.10).
Even when I corrected the overall pitch she seems to sing some words false?! Like doing vibrato out of control. I don't know if I have too high expectations but for now this is all I can say. I will definitely update my experience later but I don't have so much time at the moment.
Cubase Editor for Vocaloid 4 is working flawless except from that.
