CUL VOCALOID3


This is an article about the CUL software for the VOCALOID3 engine.

HistoryEdit

CUL started off as the mascot for VOCALO Revolution. On June 8, 2011, Yamaha announced that CUL would become a real VOCALOID, with Eri Kitamura as her voice provider. The publisher was to be Internet Co., Ltd. On November 4, 2011, her first demo, a cover of a V3 GUMI demo "A Flash of Summer", was released on YouTube. Internet Co announced on twitter that CUL would be released around December 22. A second demo was also uploaded, this time a cover of V3 Gumi demo "Nightmare." Her third and fourth demos have also been uploaded.

In October 2014 in an interview when asked if any vocal produced any hard labor, Noboru mentioned that CUL was a hard vocaloid to produce as when synthesized she gave a result that was under quality. Noboru mentioned they had to scrap her original vocal and rebuild it from scratch. They had to re-build the vocal twice, though no re-recordings were involved.[1]

Mac UpdateEdit

In July 2013, Internet co.,Ltd announced a Mac update of this product for the VOCALOID NEO engine.[2]

Product Information
Optimum
  Genre: Rock, Ethnic[3]  Tempo: 40 ~ 200BPM  Range: F2 ~ E4
Package details
Her voicebank is a powerful "young mature" female vocal type and is a professional VOCALOID vocal that was done as a Character Voice of Eri Kitamura.

The package also contains demo song data and illustrations.

Vocal traits as noted:
  • She is able to climb from low to high notes with ease.
  • Her voice has a powerful and raspy tone.
  • Her pronunciation was very clear compared to previous VOCALOID3 voicebanks, even in very short notes.
  • She's louder in lower and high notes, which allows her to not be too quiet.
  • One of CUL's highlights is her tempo range and she can cover some of the highest variety of musical genres because of it.
    • At 40 BPM, CUL is capable of the slowest tempo range of any VOCALOID3 vocal.
    • Her fastest tempo speed of 200BPM is also among a group of VOCALOID who jointly hold the title of 3rd fastest tempo range.
    • She has the 2nd largest tempo range with VOCALOID3 at a total of 160 BPM coverage, with IA and IA ROCKS having the largest at 165 BPM.
Software issues as noted:
  • CUL's voice is nasally and weaker in the abnormally higher octaves, leading to unpleasant distortion at times, as her vowels get weaker on higher notes outside her range.
