Crypton Future Media has finally announced an official release date for the Hatsune Miku V3 English Vocaloid (voice synthesizer) software: August 31, 2013.
August 31, of course, was the exact same date six years ago (2007) when the Japanese version of the Hatsune Miku Vocaloid software was released. The date is widely acknowledged by fans to be the birthdate of Hatsune Miku (the character… well, and the software, too).
So it’s no surprise at all that the English version would be released on August 31 as well.
For a sample of what Hatsune Miku could sound like in English, check out our previous story here.
Hatsune Miku V3 English is an all-in-one package that comes bundled with everything you need to start creating songs with the virtual diva right away. It includes:
- Piapro Studio VSTI vocal editor
- PreSonus Studio One Artist Piapro Edition
- Over 200 virtual instruments for your immediate music production
The entire software package, which supports both Windows and Mac operating systems, will be sold for US$149 (excluding tax), and available digitally online through the Crypton online store service, Sonicwire.
