Macne Nana Vocaloid Spreads Holiday Cheer in Japanese and English Voice Sample
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Two samples have been released featuring Macne Nana (first name Nana), the latest Vocaloid to join the official Vocaloid family.
The story of Nana began in 2008, when voice actress Haruna Ikezawa was inspired to create a "Vocaloid" that would run on Macs. Recorded using her own voice, Macne Nana gained life through UTAU, a shareware vocal synthesizer program available for Windows and Mac operating systems. It wasn't until 2013 that Vocaloid announced that it would be turning Nana into an official voice.
Nana will be available in Japanese or English, or as a bundle.
Here's a sample of her singing "Deck the Halls" in Japanese first, then English.
And here's a Japanese-only version of her singing "Sakura Sakura."
Vocaloid 3 will be released January 31, 2014.
