History[edit | edit source]
The development of Clara and Bruno (a Spanish male) started around 2009. To find their voices a casting was set up which included ESMUC's students, professional and amateur singers. From that casting two candidates were chosen, a male and a female. The creation of the voicebanks wasn't continued immediately, as first it was required to adapt VOCALOID's engine to the Spanish and found the company for their creation.
Her demos were revealed October 21, 2011. She and Bruno were released on the 23rd of December. Their production was aided by Giuseppe.
Upon their first release, they were only able to be bought via download and buyers had to use a non-free e-mail account to purchase them. This was to prevent credit card fraud. The problem was not Voctro Labs, but rather the retail seller Share-it's rules for sale. They come without the full editor, but could be bought together or separately. Their joint package made them the cheapest of the VOCALOID3 voicebanks upon their release, despite the user having to purchase the full VOCALOID3 editor separately.
Finally on January 26, a month after their release, they were made available to buy using PayPal, and customers could use a free e-mail account.
On February 21, Voctro Labs put physical copies of the both Clara and Bruno up for sale, along with a new illustration.
Re-release[edit | edit source]
Originally Bruno and Clara were released only as separate vocals only. A later dual package was released in early 2014, while the vocals were still sold separately as well, the price of the pair as individuals had been reduced going from €80 to €49. The price of €49 which had previously been the price only when they were on sale. The new dual packaging came with new boxart for both of the vocalists. Clara's vocal can now only be bought as a physical version via the dual package with Bruno as her separate vocal is a digital download only.
