Aoki Lapis debuted at Comiket 80 on August 18, 2011. She is part of a joint collaborative project between Japanese search engine Surfer's Paradise, anime studio Studio DEEN, and Nico Nico Douga, called "i-style Project".

A voice recording competition was held to find the voice provider, by uploading a song they think best suits her. This ended on September 9, with Eguchi Nako emerging as the winner.

Aoki Lapis's voice was revealed during the Vonama event celebrating the release of VOCALOID3. Her full demo was released on November 11.

Aoki Lapis is sold in 3 different ways: voicebank alone, voicebank and V3 editor, and a deluxe edition. She has been designed to work with everyday users of VOCALOID, not just professional musicians, and designed for a new type of music, termed "lifestyle".[1]

Aoki Lapis "Second Edition"[]

Aoki Lapis was one of several products which was re-released in 2013 under "SE" edition. The updated version will host 3 new job plug-ins for the VOCALOID3 engine as well as the latest version of VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID3 Lite. For users who already own the original vocal, there is no need for a second purchase as aside from a software package update, all the new added bonus content in the SE addition is downloadable from the VOCALOID website.

The original version of Lapis was discontinued from sale on May 20, 2013.[2]

Mac Update[]

In 2013, a Mac version of Aoki Lapis called "Aoki Lapis NEO" was released. This used the new VOCALOID NEO engine to work on Mac computers.

Package details as noted:

Aoki Lapis is supposed to be a more relaxed tone of voice which fits the 'lifestyle' type of music. She was made to be able to be easy to use for beginners and new producers of the VOCALOID3 software. This is a Character Voice of Eguchi Nako.

the package includes VSQX files for original songs ラムネビーダマ and 幼馴染はπスラッシャー.

Vocal traits as noted:
  • She has a high voice, which is very clear and simple to use.
  • On certain sounds she has a lisp, which gives her a "cutesy" sounding tone, though sometimes the "lisp" sound works against her. For example, in a low range, Aoki Lapis has a breathy vocal tone which without editing can easily sound muffled.
  • Her natural voice tone excels at being sweet sounding with minimal tuning, making her very user friendly.[3]
