On the 22nd of October, VocaTone hosted a VOCALOID panel at a local Anime Convention, Anime Banzai and got the okay to reveal Oliver's voice there. Anders did request that guests be prohibited from using cameras/recording devices, so only Oliver's voice is heard until the first official demo is out.
The group consists of fans of Vocaloid. PowerFX agreed to aid in the development and distribution of Oliver for VocaTone. However, after Oliver, the group have announced they will do it alone.
Since they are an amateur fan based group, they rely on the overseas Vocaloid fandom for support; they do not have the same backing as other professionals do.
