Yamaha has announced the release of Vocaloid 3, their newest software for the critically acclaimed Vocaloid voice synthesizer program. The software, featuring new twin girl Vocaloids Anon and Kanon, is set for release on March 3 and will cost approximately 12,800 yen before tax. The software will be available for Windows and Mac and be compatible with VOCALOID Editor for Cubase NEO (sold separately).
According to their character descriptions, the twins sing together as a Tsundere duo. Anon is the "dere" of the set, singing in a more melodious, gentle voice, while Kanon, with her stronger, more passionate voice, is the "tsun." Anon's recommended singing range is from G2 to E4, and works well with songs that are between tempos of 60 to 160 BPM. Kanon, on the other hand, is more suited to singing between in a range between A2 and E4 and tempos from 80 to 180 BPM.
A sample of Anon and Kanon's first demo from Hachiouji P has been posted on YouTube.
More details on Anon and Kanon, including personal profiles on both of the girls, can be found on their official teaser webpage.
