Standard Vocals VOCALOID5 | Songs Albums Notable Originals

Amy, Chris, Kaori, and Ken are the current standard VOCALOIDs developed and distributed by the YAMAHA Corporation. They make up the four starter vocals of the VOCALOID5 engine and were released in July 2018. Amy and Chris are English-capable VOCALOIDs while Kaori and Ken are Japanese-capable VOCALOIDs. They replace the VY series, which previously acted as the main "Standard" Vocaloids.

Their voice providers have not been revealed.

Concept[edit | edit source]

According to Gizmodo the 4 take on a human-like approach, though did express concerns they did not seem "Vocaloid-like".[2]

They are the third and current set of "standard" voices to be released after Yamaha developed MEIKO and KAITO (VOCALOID) and then the VY series (VOCALOID2 to VOCALOID4).

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Work in Progress

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The four use a 1990s 3D art style to represent them with low polygon limits giving them an angular appearance and very little, or no textures on their models. In most instances of their given images, their 4 models appear with random triangles to give the 3D models a fragmented or corrupted appearance.

Each character model wears a basic necklace that matches the color of the background they're presented on. Amy's is pink, Chris's is blue, Kaori's is orange, and Ken's is green. Amy also wears pink hoop earrings.

History[edit | edit source]

Marketing[edit | edit source]

The 4 vocals were marketed as being exclusive vocals that come with the VOCALOID5 engine itself. No matter which of the two options that a buyer chooses, they would end up with the 4 vocals.
