SF-A2 miki VOCALOID2 VOCALOID4


This is an article about the SF-A2 codename miki software for the VOCALOID4 engine.

HistoryEdit

Silhouettes for SF-A2 miki, along with the other VOCALOIDs by AHS, were revealed on a poster on November 6th, 2014, however, at the time, it was unconfirmed what they were for. [1] On November 20th, it was confirmed in the livestream for VOCALOID4 that they all, with the exception of Tohoku Zunko, will be receiving VOCALOID4 voicebanks.

On May 14th, 2015, AH-Software confirmed that miki would only have a Natural voicebank and would release on June 18th, 2015. It is possible to buy her Natural voicebank, but there was also information about a starter pack. Other details such as tempo, range, the prices for her packages were also revealed. It was also shown that miki V4 has an official MMD model by KIO.[2]

On June 4th, a trial version for miki V4 was made available.[3]

Package details
An improved version of the original SF-A2 miki vocal, and according to AH-Software Co. Ltd. was produced to faithfully reproduce the voice of her voice provider,Furukawa Miki.
Vocal traits as noted:
  • GWL capable
  • As her original package, the performance while singing is soft in lower notes and progressively gets powerful and sharp in higher. While the transition of both singing styles was unstable in the original library, it was improved to make it more natural and smoother.
  • Improved and more accurate pronunciation and better audio quality.
  • The "crisp" tone of SF-A2 miki isn't present.
  • Triphones added.
  • Most of the glitches from the V2 vocal were fixed, making the new voicebank more user friendly.
  • She becomes softer in higher notes and has less tension than her V2, which doesn't allow her to work well as her V2 in more fast-paced music.
  • In contrast, her stationaries became stable enough to mantain a good performance in slower and mellow genres.
Phonetic notes as noted:
  • As her V2, she still skip the "-" phoneme.
Software issues as noted:
  • The new voice uses the same recordings Miki Furukawa did for SF-A2 miki V2, so aside from the quality and triphonetic data included, there are no really important or noticeable changes.
  • Compared to the original, this vocal sounds more sharp and isn't always smooth as a result.
  • miki V4 has the same problem as her V2, she will often sounds off-key, though this issue is now easier to fix with minor editing.
