AVANNA VOCALOID3 | Songs Albums Notable Originals

This article is about the VOCALOID3 software known as a voicebank. If you are looking for the VOCALOID character then click here.


During the VOCALOID3 announcements, Zero-G were revealed to be working on a male and female Celtic-themed pair to add to the VOCALOID series. AVANNA was expected in the summer of 2012,[1] however, she was delayed originally because of a quality-related issue.[2] She was confirmed in the month of August 2012, during which her status was "almost complete."

EmpathP had been asked on August 13 if she was prepared to do the artwork. The art was done during August and September, and adjustments were made throughout. The eventual design, however, was rejected by Yamaha themselves for not being an "anime"-based style. The decision was made to start from scratch and redo the design in a style Yamaha preferred.[3][4] One of the theories put forward by the artist, EmpathP, was that the reason why YAMAHA rejected the non-anime like style of artwork they initially put forward, was due to the reaction towards Bruno and Clara's original designs.

In November 2012, at the VocaNoIro panel at Nekocon 15, it was revealed that AVANNA's voicebank was finished, and that EmpathP would be the artist of AVANNA's boxart. A demo of her voice was also revealed at the panel and uploaded onto YouTube.

On November 8, 2012, EmpathP revealed her design on her DeviantArt account.

AVANNA was set for a release on the December 20th, but was held back for two days.[5][6]

Zero-G has since confirmed that her counterpart male vocal was on hiatus as they had not found a voice that was suitable enough for the role.

Package details as noted:

AVANNA continues as a part of Zero-G's releases, focusing on a specific genre of music. She was announced as a more "pop and dance" focused vocal and has a "Celtic twist." Her accent is quite Irish.

A special set of breath wav. files were also produced. These are available for download on the official website.[7]

Vocal traits as noted:
  • AVANNA is labeled by those working on her as the best VOCALOID they have produced so far, and she also has a large voice range. She was regarded by Zero-G as their clearest and sweetest sounding vocal.[8]
  • She has a soft, high-pitched vocal, in comparison to some of the past Zero-G VOCALOIDs, and sings with a slight Celtic "ring."
  • AVANNA's voice is realistic-sounding and has a natural tone with less undesirable output results in comparison to past Zero-G VOCALOIDs.
  • Her voice is clearer than many past English-capable VOCALOIDs.
  • She is not good at holding long, drawn-out notes.
  • She holds pitch well. This was demonstrated at DEX and DAINA's live stream when they were compared to her.
Phonetic notes as noted:
  • She has strong consonant pronunciation. In consequence, her consonants sometimes overpower her vowel sounds.
  • When using some syllables involving the "oo" [u:] sound, specifically "choo" [tS u:], "shoo" [S u:] or "soo" [s u:], she sings them with a "y." Turning them into "chyoo," "shyoo," and "syoo." In some instances where this happens, the sound [U] can be used instead of [u:], but it doesn't always work.
Software issues as noted:
  • Though Avanna is generally regarded as user friendly she can have slight volume issues causeing her to sometimes be difficult to blend in duets.
  • Her vowels can sound "closed" in some instances.
  • Some words can be pronounced with a certain "tone" to them, that leads you to be unable to pitch bend that note. This can be fixed with note bending.
