Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Mainichi's Mac Fan magazine for Mac computer users has announced that Jouji Nakata will voice the "father" of its Macne Nana virtual singer. Gomoku Akatsuki, the illustrator of the earlier Macne characters, will design the new character.
Users of GarageBand, Apple's Mac OS X desktop music (DTM) software, can apply the voice sample data from Haruna Ikezawa's Nana character to synthesize vocal songs. Nana already has a "sister" voiced by Kikuko Inoue. Both Ikezawa and Inoue had recorded the 50 phonetic moras in the Japanese language and their variations to create their respective voice sample collections.
