Hiyama Kiyoteru VOCALOID2 VOCALOID4


This is an article about the Hiyama Kiyoteru V4 software for the VOCALOID4 engine.

HistoryEdit

Silhouettes for the AH-Software VOCALOIDs were revealed on a poster on November 6, 2014; however, it was unconfirmed what they were for at the time.[1] On November 20, it was confirmed in the livestream for VOCALOID4 that they all, with the exception of Tohoku Zunko, would receive VOCALOID4 voicebanks.  

On May 28, 2015, AH-Software showed a new design for Kiyoteru to promote the AniNite concert in Vienna, Austria. Its relation to his VOCALOID4 update was unknown at the time.[2]

On August 17, it was noted that Kiyoteru and Kaai Yuki would receive demos some time after the AniNite concert ended. It was also mentioned that Kiyoteru's VOCALOID4 voicebank was recorded from scratch to improve his upper and lower ranges.[3]

On September 30, Kiyoteru was confirmed to receive a Natural and Rock vocal. He had also gained a new design which corresponded with the Rock voicebank, while his Natural voicebank used the design that was shown off in May to promote the AniNite concert. His Natural and Rock vocals could be purchased separately or together, and a Starter Pack was confirmed to be available. His release date was announced to be October 29, 2015.[4]

On October 15, trial versions of his voicebanks became available.[5]

Product Information
Versions
  Trial/Demo Vers?: Yes  Starter Available?: Yes  App vers.?: Yes
Package details
The updated version of the VOCALOID2 package.
Vocal traits as noted:
Cross-Synthesis notes:

XSY possible between "Natural" and "Rock"

  • In total the package offers the equivalent of 2 additional voicebanks achievable via XSY. The total tone variation offered by the package comes to a theoretical 4 voicebanks in total.
  • From Ver.4.3.0 of the Vocaloid engine onwards, a XSY group "AHS" was added to Vocaloid. All vocals within the "AHS" group can XSY with each other. This vocal release is part of this group. If a User owns one or more vocal releases within the "AHS" group, XSY between them will open up.[6][7]
  • The "AHS" is currently the second largest XSY group within Vocaloid. In total if user was to own every VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 Ah software vocal within the "AHS" group, this offers the equivalent of 156 additional voicebanks achievable via XSY. The total tone variation offered by the combined packages comes to a theoretical 169 voicebanks in total.
  • Note that also "GWL" does not become viable for use with any V3 vocals used as the primarily vocal. This should be considered when using any vocal for XSY within the "AHS" group from V3.
  • Also note that the updated vocals that brought a Vocaloid from VOCALOID3 into VOCALOID4 provided few differences, aside from adding GWL. Therefore these updates can provide little difference when used for XSY.
