V3 Miku Append had been confirmed for the VOCALOID3 engine. The move over to the new engine means that all of the Append data must be readjusted from scratch for optimum results from VOCALOID2 to VOCALOID3.[1]

On July 24, 2013, it was confirmed VOCALOID2 Hatsune Miku and Append vocals would be included in a new update Hatsune Miku V3 version.[2]

Users who registered with Hatsune Miku vocals later were e-mailed special deals on the new Hatsune Miku V3, and a special Hatsune Miku V3 bundle which included her new English version.

Upon release Miku was offered on Amazon with several bundles:

  • "Debut" set: this contained Japanese Miku only, this also contains a Korg microKEY-25 MIDI keyboard, a TASCAM US-322 unit and headset.[3]
  • "Recording Starter set": contains the same contents as "Debut" set with extras. These include Cubase LE6, pop guard, wind guard, a boom arm microphone stand, a dynamic microphone and microphone cable.[4]
  • US-122MKII "Debut" set: contains the Hatsune Miku V3 complete software. this also contains a Korg microKEY-25 MIDI keyboard, a TASCAM US-122MKII unit and headset.[5]
  • "Invinicble" set: This contains the complete Miku V3 bundle. It contains pop guard, wind guard, a boom arm microphone stand, Korg microKEY-25 MIDI keyboard, music stand, microphone cable and Peavey PVi2 Dynamic Microphone.Cubase LE6 is included and the TASCAM unit is a TASCAM US-366 unit.[6]

These bundles are not intended for normal PC set up and were designed for a special set up. They also contain "Studio One ARTIST Piapro edition”.

Further vocalsEdit

Crypton is still discussing with Yamaha conditions which would allow registered users of Hatsune Miku Append to gain access to "Vivid" and "Light" for free.[7] It was later confirmed that anyone who owned the VOCALOID2 both Hatsune Miku and Miku Append, as well as either of the Hatsune Miku packages (Hatsune Miku V3 English package not included) must register by mid-October to get Light and Vivid for free.[8] The vocals are downloadable until Feb 28th 2014.[9]

In 2014 Wat mentioned playing with the wavelengths of experimental vocals he hoped to one day release. These 3 vocals he mentioned were KAITO Light, Miku Falsetto and MEIKO Hard.[10] Miku Falsetto was last mentioned during the VOCALOID2 era after Hatsune Miku Append's release as a future possible vocal.

Package Details
The updated version of Hatsune Miku. It will include both the new version of the original Hatsune Miku, plus the Append vocals "Dark", "Soft", "Sweet" and "Solid".[11]
Vocal Traits
As noted;
  • Triphones added
Phonetic notes
Software Issues
As noted;
  • "Vivid" and "Light" are missing from the original Hatsune Miku Append. There are some consequences of these two missing vocals;
    • The missing two vocals mean that the V3 package compared to the VOCALOID2 era releases lack any focus on faster genres of music.
    • This also means "Dark" and "Sweet" are missing their polar opposing vocals, although the "soft" and "solid" pair still remain.
    • "Solid" is now the only Append remaining that focuses on powerful vocals and therefore this particular package has a tendency to favor softer tones overall. As a consequence, the original Hatsune Miku vocal is the vocal left most adapt to act as a bridge between "Solid" and the other Append vocals.
  • All vocals now are listed as an octave lower then the original VOCALOID2 optimum ranges gave the equivalent vocals as.
