YAMAHA’s latest VOCALOID4 ‘Sachiko’ is now available for digital purchase, with a physical release to follow some time in August. I’m certain we’ll learn much more about the potential of Sachiko once some producers purchase and use her. Until then, please enjoy the official demo below, which was uploaded today!
From the demo, we can hear that she has a very powerful and distinctive voice, which could make her a popular choice for some producers. The enka influence makes her vocals stand out in what is a very saturated market, so I look forward to seeing what people create with her!
Illustrated by Foo and voiced by popular enka artist Kobayashi Sachiko, she is designed to be a realistic-sounding Vocaloid, with over 400 exVOICE sounds. She also has a Job Plugin named ‘Sachikobushi’, which apparently makes her vocals sound much closer to that of her voice provider. She is geared towards the tempo of 60-175BPM, and her recommended range is D2-B3. Below are some works that have already been uploaded!
PolyphonicBranch have covered their own song ‘2D Dream Fever’! Be sure to give it a listen below!
