History[edit | edit source]
Nekomura Iroha's voice provider was recorded before the licensing to the character had been finalized. The vocal was not originally made for Iroha as a result. Planning of the first three AH-Software Co. Ltd. vocals began in 2007.
Iroha was later introduced in 2009 for the Hello Kitty to Issho! Project. In May 2010, Iroha was first featured as a VOCALOID in DTM Magazine with only a concept sketch of her design.
In October 2010, Iroha was released for VOCALOID2 with two demo songs, her appearance, and her name. Her voice provider was initially unknown. However, it was said that the voice provider was a female professional singer who passed the audition test set by AH-Software.
Taiwan Release[edit | edit source]
Iroha is one of the VOCALOIDs set to be released by e-capsule.
Final Retirement[edit | edit source]
At the end of 2015, it was announced that from March 31, 2016, VOCALOID2 was being retired and no new serial codes were be issued by Yamaha.
AH-Software is planning how to deal with this.

Nekomura Iroha VOCALOID2
A trial version has been released of this product.
Demo Version[edit | edit source]
Her trial version did not have as many reported problems as Lily's had and turned out to be a closer representation of her final product than Lily's was. At this point in time, there are no known major bugs with her demo version. The demo version allowed 30 days usage for free so users can test out her vocals.
A 14 day trial version of the VOCALOID2 engine for this VOCALOID was made available to download in March 2012 from AH-Software's website. This does not allow .VSQ saving, but .Wav files can be saved.
