Lily VOCALOID2 VOCALOID3


This is an article about the Lily software for the VOCALOID2 engine.

HistoryEdit

Lily originally appeared on the cover of the CD "anim.o.v.e. 01" released on Aug 19th, 2009 before the announcement of her VOCALOID development. Lily was introduced as "Code Name: Lily" on DTM MAGAZINE published in May, 2010.[1] The voice source is the lead vocalist of m.o.v.e., Yuri Masuda. The idea of the developing a VOCALOID based on Yuri's voice occurred, as one of the members was a user of VOCALOID. The illustration of Lily's VOCALOID was used on the Anim.o.v.e album while the voicebank was in development.[2][3]

Two official demos, "SUPER SONIC DANCE Lily Ver. With G" and "Gamble Rumble Lily Ver With G" have been released. Gackpo Camui is also used in both of them. "SUPER SONIC DANCE" and "Gamble Rumble" are songs released by m.o.v.e.[4][5]

Internet Co., Ltd. is the distributor and also provides her support for the users. This was also announced by t-kimura (Takashi Kimura), once a member and now a music producer of m.o.v.e, on his Twitter. Lily was published on August 25, 2010, and was designed by KEI. The data for the voice was created by sampling the voice of Yuri Masuda, a Japanese vocalist of the Japanese musical group m.o.v.e.[6][7]

Final RetirementEdit

At the end of 2015, it was announced that from March 31st 2016, VOCALOID2 was being retired and no new serial codes were be issued by Yamaha.[8]

Product Information
Optimum
  Tempo: 90 ~ 180BPM  Range: D2 ~ D4 (Contralto)
Package details
She is the voice of Yuri Masuda's anime persona "Lily". Lily is voiced by a professional singer and produces professional singing results. Her voice has a mature and husky tone compared to previous VOCALOID2 female voicebanks, making her more suitable for rock and pop songs.
Vocal traits as noted:
  • She can sing in a low or mid range much better than in a higher one.
  • She has a powerful vocal and was more on par with MEIKO.[9]
  • Lily is also capable of reaching the lowest known optimum vocal range of any female VOCALOID2, reaching as low as #D2.[10]
  • Her voice has a notorious metallic tone.
Phonetic notes as noted:
  • She has some issues related with the phoneme [i]; the vowel combinations that include it tends to be choppy.
  • Although Lily produces clear pronunciation, she has trouble producing a single consonant.[11]
Software issues as noted:
  • Has issues with pitching. According to the later V3 Lily package, this vocal had two sets of high pitched recordings. This caused the overall vocal to sound high pitched.[12]
  • Her voice is notorious for cutting off during transactions; this causes heavy slurring within the vocal and can make her vocal hard to understand because of it.

Demo VersionEdit

The demo gave users the ability to test Lily's upcoming software for 30 days for free. This allowed users to test to see if they liked her voicebank enough for purchase. It was issued with DTM magazines September 2010 issue, it was also issued with the ANIM.O.V.E 2nd album.[13]

Some users reported Lily's demo voicebank had a pronunciation problem; she could not carry the "i"s (い) over two notes. Her "o"s (お) could get distorted if followed by "n" (ん). Another reported problem was that her consonants could not be pronounced if left on the end.[14] Due to its wide distribution, it was relatively easy to get a hold of and ended up being cracked quite quickly.
