Hello (:

I am Move-Forward or Move->Forward

I would be happy to answer any questions (that I can) regarding Vocaloid and/or Vocaloid use in Cubase

I myself do not use the Vocaloid3/4 Editor for Cubase, but I use Piapro Studio in Cubase

If you are not familiar with what Vocaloid is,
Vocaloid is a voice-synthesizer, like a singer on your computer
You can type in what you want them to sing, and they’ll sing it!

Can you say Milli Vanilli… I don’t use it but it looks interesting. The problem I have with this type of technology is the computer trying to replace a real human voice not helping to improve a singer’s performance. What happens when you have to perform live? I hope it doesn’t become another auto tune thing where everybody is using it and lip-syncing. :astonished:
I think I will stay away from Vocaliod.

So Move-Forward,

Do you have any idea why Steinberg has not been promoting Vocaloid? I mean one would think that IF this is going to be integrated into Steinberg software (it’s from Yamaha) like some websites seem to infer that there would be some “hype-building” and whatnot, right?!

Just seems like Yamaha and Steinberg would be splashing this ALL OVER the place as a new feature for like Cubase 10 or something.

Any inside info?

Thanks.

What? Yamaha own Vocaloid? That’s news to me…
As far as I know vocaloid is only really popular in Japan, not so much elsewhere.

Yup… My understanding from their main website is that it is Yamaha owned.

Although, “licensed by Yamaha” could mean something slightly different than how I am interpreting things…

Oh, goodness! It sure would be cool to know why but I don’t know

Yes, Vocaloid is mostly popular in Japan
That could be part of why

Maybe if there was a German Vocaloid or Vocaloid got really popular in Germany?

And yes, Yamaha I believe developed Vocaloid
Though I think it may have actually been first developed in Brazil
So they maybe worked alongside a company in Brazil for Vocaloid

Some companies work alongside Yamaha and create their own Vocaloids

Or some companies distribute certain Vocaloids themselves

But Yamaha’s got some of their own

I think it works like that~
