Zero-G announces Vocaloid Prima to ship this month

10th January 2008

Zero-G has announced that Vocaloid Prima will be shipping this month.

Vocaloid Prima is a plug-in "Virtual Vocalist" modelled on the voice of a professional soprano opera singer and powered by the Yamaha Vocaloid2 Singing Synthesis Technology.

Whether it's soaring leads, harmonies or backing vocals, Prima can sing any word from the English language (and other languages too with a little work). Prima is also very well suited if you want to be adventurous and experimental, since her voice can be easily modified and shaped in many ways.

In addition to singing any words or combination of syllables or phonemes you can imagine, Prima will spread any sustained vowel (or voiced consonant) across as many notes as you like, with perfect legato. You can select from several different natural vibrato types and drag and drop your chosen type to any note or notes, and control the time-position and amount of the vibrato.

And that's just the beginning - you have control over all of the following parameters, which you can bring to bear on any part of your creation:
