Yamaha Intros Vocaloid 4 Library ‘Cyber Songman’

Yamaha has released a new voice library for its virtual vocalist application Vocaloid 4, Cyber Songman.

Vocaloid is a technology developed by Yamaha in 2003 that lets you create virtual vocals, by inputting words and melodies.  Cyber Songman is a new Voice Bank, developed especially for users in the English-speaking world.

This new Voice Bank is based on recorded sound parts taken from the singing of a native speaker from the United States and features American English pronunciation.

The vocal library also features a ‘Growl’ function, to create vocal affects common in blues and rock songs.

Here are the official audio demos:

Note: Cyber Songman is a Voice Bank product and requires a separate editor software such as the VOCALOID 4 Editor (Windows only) or VOCALOID 4 Editor for Cubase.

Pricing and Availability

Cyber Songman is available now for JPY 10,000.
