Yamaha releases Vocaloid v1.1


Yamaha has updated the Vocaloid plug-in and editor to v1.1. You can apply this update to Vocaloid Lola, Leon, Miriam, and Meiko.

Version 1.1 features several enhancements, including:

New Synthesis Engine:

  • More natural, intelligible and expressive.
  • Selection of overall "singing style". By selecting a different style for the same singer, you can create different characteristics for expanded expressive capability.
  • Less tweaking time to get "more realistic" singing.

Powerful and handy "Play With Synthesis" mode:

  • "Play With Synthesis" mode enables you to play back the synthesis instantly.
  • Toggling between "Play With Synthesis" and "Play After Synthesis" modes for each track enables you to free up CPU usage.
  • Also available in ReWire.

Numerous easy-to-use functionality improvements:

  • Automatic phoneme conversion of lyrics and automatic syllabication.
  • Randomization enables you to slightly shift the Note-on timing and/or the pitch in order to make the sound more realistic.
  • Automatic vibrato option.
  • Other helpful functionality to increase speed of work.

More flexible "activation":

  • LAN device not necessary.
  • Web-based offline activation available.
