kokone (心響) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by Internet Co., Ltd., and was released in February 2014 for the VOCALOID3 engine. Her voice provider has not been revealed, but is confirmed to be based on a new vocalist.
Her name means "heart sound". It may also derive from "心に響く": a verb phrase that literally means "to echo in the heart" and means "to leave an impression on the heart/emotions".
Connected to her name, Kokone was released on Valentine's day, which is a holiday that celebrates love.
Prior to her release, INTERNET Co held an illustration contest for her. The contest ended on March 17, 2014.
- kokone's vocal was born from a failed attempt to produce a Megpoid falsetto vocal. kokone has both normal and female falsetto vocals in the same vocal. As a consequence, she will smoothly switch over when the producer goes from middle to upper ranges. She is capable of achieving some of the highest and most extreme notes in VOCALOID.
