Previously released for VOCALOID5 for singing (with 2 voicebanks: Natural and Cool) and VOICEROID2 for speaking, Haruno Sora, voiced by well-known voice actress and singer Inoue Kikuko, is coming to Synthesizer V as an AI voice database and to VOICEPEAK for speech!
Sora will be having a brand new design and her Synthesizer V AI voice library will be shown off at VVV MUSIC LIVE on June 25!
We received confirmation that Synthesizer V AI Haruno Sora will be performing “恋の呪文はソラソラ” at VVV Music Live! This song was written by EHAMIC and was originally released in July 2018, featuring her VOCALOID5 voicebanks.
For Sora SynthV, she was illustrated by Umetani Atarō, who is very well known in the voice synthesizer fandom for illustrating AH-Software’s characters, including Kaai Yuki, Hiyama Kiyoteru, Macne Nana V4, Macne Petit V4, Tsurumaki Maki (VOICEROID and CeVIO), and Kyomachi Seika (VOICEROID)! They also illustrated Sora’s V5 and VOICEROID versions in the past, so it’s nice to see their work again! As for character design, it was confirmed that this was handled by Hasegawa Umi, who had drawn Poron, Sora’s companion robot!
About the voice itself, Sora can express a wide range of intonations, from a soft and gentle voice quality to a powerful and cool style in the lower range. Her recommended range is C3~E5. She has five confirmed Vocal Modes: Sweet, Soft, Adult, Pop, and Cool. Sora will also be releasing with a Lite version for everyone to try out if they’re not sure about committing to her fully.
Along with the new look and information, Sora’s got five demos public available for now. Check them out!
