galaco VOCALOID3 (prize ver.) VOCALOID3 NEO VOCALOID6 Talk A.I.VOICE | Songs Albums Notable Originals


galaco (ギャラ子) is a Japanese VOCALOID originally developed by Internet Co., Ltd. and YAMAHA Corporation, under the Stardust Music, Inc. name. Her update is a collaboration between YAMAHA & Stardust Music, Inc. only. She was offered exclusively as a competition prize in the VOCALOID Shop, and was initially released in August 2012 for the VOCALOID3 engine. The voice provider was revealed to be Kou Shibasaki (柴咲 コウ; Shibasaki Kō),[1] a Japanese actress, singer, and member of the Japanese music group, galaxias!.

On July 8, 2024, it was announced that Galaco would be receiving an update to VOCALOID6 in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Galaco NEO, along with a demo of her new vocals uploaded utilizing V6's Multilingual feature.[2] AI Galaco is slated to have two voicebanks, dubbed BLACK and WHITE respectively, with Galaco sporting a different design for each vocal. A release date is set for August 5, 2024.[3] In addition, it was also revealed that she will be receiving a speech voicebank for A.I.VOICE, which is expected to release the same day as her V6 software.[4] Kou Shibasaki returns to provide her voice for both AI Galaco and A.I.VOICE Galaco.

Concept[]

Her design and original concept came about with the release of the "galaxias!" musical unit, being part of the promotional material related to said project. "galaxias!" is composed by the producer DECO*27, the DJ TeddyLoid, and the voice actress and singer Kou Shibasaki, being the latter the one who come with the idea for galaco.[5] Although it hasn't been stated, it's evident that galaco was designed to follow the same galactic concept used on galaxias!,[6] as it's reflected on her attire design and name.

Etymology[]

Her name is a combination of 'galaxy' and 'ko' (子), Japanese for child.

Appearance[]

Following her name and concept, galaco has a strong reference to galaxies and cosmos, which reflected on the nebulae pattern on her clothes. Her design also seems to adopt some princess-like traits, particularly for her hairstyle and crown. Other characteristic traits are her multicolored hair locks and the triangular patterns on her design.

NEO[]

With the release of the NEO versions, galaco's appearance was redesigned to have a more delicate appearance, while keeping her iconic traits, like her "cosmic" vibe.

Prior to her announcement, she also had a doll made for her by BLYTHE and custom made by galaxxxy.[7] The doll was only for display and not for sale, but was used in promotion.

Voicebanks[]

galaco - Red
The galaco "Red" vocal was originally given away as a prize for meeting the criteria of the VOCALOID SHOP contest. She was originally only aimed at a strictly Japanese market and the ability to gain access to her vocal was limited for overseas producers with issues occurring for a long time related to this. The vocal also had issues with an expiring code which lead to its formal release later on. In addition, due to technical difficulties, consequential commercially released versions have a noted increase in quality over the initial version.
"Red" is regarded as galaco's main vocal and is aimed to be a faster tempo vocal. The vocal is intended to capture the traits of its provider Kou Shibasaki.
galaco - Blue
In contrast to "Red", "Blue" is meant to be for slower songs. Also, "Blue" is a more voice-acted result and is intended to be a supportive voicebank.
