Product Information
Optimum

Package details
He is a CV VOCALOID based on the voice of the Japanese male singer Piko[3], who is able to sing in very high notes, making him the second youngest known male voice within the VOCALOID2 era, being VY2 the first one.
Vocal traits as noted:
  • He is praised as a versatile VOCALOID capable of a multitude of vocal tones and results. He is said to be able to easily fit in a variety of roles within music because of it.
  • He also has the second highest known optimum vocal range of any male VOCALOID within the VOCALOID2 era only beaten by Kagamine Len in range. However, he is highest male actually voiced by a male vocalist.[4]
  • Owed to the softness of his vocals, sometimes he can be harder to understand.
  • Some have noted he often produces flat or muffled results in the lower notes.
Software issues as noted:
  • In its default state, he is the least masculine sounding male vocal sampled by a male that was released in VOCALOID2. He cannot produce a satisfactory low masculine vocal tone as a result of it.[5]
