VOCALOID:AI now gives us the ability to pursue a more human-sounding expressiveness.
This is good news for me, as I often use it for laying down temporary vocal tracks and checking backing vocal lines in my work.
The direction tools are easy to use, making this software quick to work with.
I’m stoked about VOCALO CHANGER! Looking forward to seeing how this feature, which is somewhere between a VOCALOID and human (or maybe more human, in my opinion) will be used. I thought it might be good to use them separately for different blocks in a song, or by switching every several characters between the sound of the VOCALOID and the VOCALO CHANGER singing within a phrase. You’d need courage to sing an entire song with VOCALO CHANGER, but it might be fun.

I was using VOCALOID 5 on the Mac, and in comparison the usability and clarity of the UI design are obvious. When making adjustments in VOCALOID 5 the notes and parameters were loaded again each time from the beginning of the track, but now the software from the edited location, making it easily to check while playing back in real time. Additionally, the inspector section is now displayed at the side, which I like because it makes adjusting parameters easy. The smooth, beautiful pronunciation of the newly added VOCALOID : AI has further lowered the bar to creating songs with English lyrics.
In previous versions it often took time to adjust the richness of expression, but VOCALOID: AI sings well even on a solid track. That base means we can have a broad range of preferences which gives the user more freedom, lowering the hurdle that must be overcome to adjust expression. I think its easier for people who up until now have been put off by its potential difficulty to take on.
