Hatsune Miku – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) [初音 ミク] [CG Voice]
Please read this before commenting! —
The Japanese computer-generated voice Hatsune Miku (初音 ミク) from Vocaloid2 singing “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”, originally by ‘The Proclaimers’. Hatsune Miku is the first voice in a series of ‘character voices’ produced for Vocaloid2.
The video was not originally intended to be the main point. I just synchronized some animations with the song because I wanted to put it up here. EDIT: And damn, it really suffered from the YouTube compression. For the first time, it also seems to have de-sync’ed the video and audio too. Anyway…
Because the voice is intended for Japanese lyrics, the voice doesn’t sound ‘fluent’ in English, but that doesn’t stop the cuteness. 😛 (In fact, it kind of adds to it…)
There is a lesser-known CG voice doing the backing singing (on the right speaker – there’s a stereo version available, check the bottom of this description). It’s a voice I made using Virtual Singer on Melody Assistant. If the second Vocaloid2 voice in the character series had been released yet, I would have used it, but unfortunately that will not be released until the end of December 2007.
I know I got lazy with the video editing near the end, that’s what happens when you’ve spent 11 days working on it. <_<
I did not make any of the illustrations used in this video! I just synchronised them to the lyrics or beat.
If you want to know anything about what’s in the video, please CHECK THE CREDITS at the end! ^^
