- This is an informative article about the MIRIAM software for the first VOCALOID engine.
In July 2004, Zero-G went through with a limited release for Miriam, making her the third VOCALOID to be put up for purchase. Miriam's programming surpassed her previous VOCALOID counterparts, Lola and Leon. Miriam Stockley herself offered to allow her voice to be added into the software engine, providing the front-page quote that you cannot fight progress. Improved functionality was implemented in the software, which lessened the time for a VOCALOID user to produce more realistic sound. In addition, Yamaha mentioned on their website that Miriam's synthesis quality was much higher than previously.
In 2008, Leon, Lola and Miriam were put back on sale for the first time in several years, this was thanks to the interest in Vocaloid.
In mid December 2013, Zero-G's regular newsletter reported that on the 31st of December 2013 Leon, Lola and Miriam would receive permanent retirement and would be removed from sale.
