Planned by Yamaha Corporation in cooperation with Sachiko Promotion, Inc. This singing Voice Bank, created based on the voice of Sachiko Kobayashi, one of Japan's most famous singers of popular songs and Enka, has been developed as a new frontier for VOCALOID. This is an overwhelmingly soulful singing voice that vividly expresses the creator's passion. Create expressive vocal performances with profound feeling and a beautifully forceful singing voice, from the bass to treble ranges.
Includes the Job Plugin "Sachikobushi"
The Job Plugin "Sachikobushi" was created by analyzing unique characteristics, such as kobushi (irregular fluctuations in pitch) and shakuri (shifting up in pitch), in the voice data of Sachiko Kobayashi's previous catalog, allowing you to easily reproduce this singing style. Use the simple operations to select your favorite effects and reproduce Sachiko Kobayashi's style of singing.
As a bonus, this bundle also includes over 400 diverse voice samples recorded by Sachiko Kobayashi herself from standard call out to unique ones, such as "I will sing!", "Let's Go", to "Clap your hands!" and "Descend!".

Comment from Foo Midori
From her far-reaching success in real life and on the Internet, Sachiko Kobayashi is known as a strong woman. This product incorporates many elements of modern Japan while also maintaining her image of strength.
Since Sachiko Kobayashi is from Niigata Prefecture, her kimono and headdress designs feature the Yukitsubaki (snow camellia), which is the official flower of Niigata and also the title of one of her hit songs.
Born in Niigata in 1953. Debuted professionally in 1964 after being discovered by Masao Koga. In 1979, "Omoidezake" became a hit song and sold 2 million copies. This led to numerous music awards, including Best Vocal Performance Award at the Japan Record Award. That same year she appeared on NHK's Red and White Year-end Song Festival, her first of 33 consecutive appearances. She is popular with fans of all ages due to her work in a wide variety of genres, such as singing the theme song to Mewtwo Strikes Back, the first movie in the Pocket Monsters series, and singing the theme song and appearing as a voice actor in Crayon Shin-chan: The Storm Called the Jungle. In 2013, she posted a singing video on Nico Nico Douga, which exceeded 1 million views in a shortest time. In 2014, she shocked many people through her participation in Comiket, which led to much greater exposure for this comic fair.
