'''MAIDLOID''' (メイドロイド) is a Text-to-Speech/Phrase Editor synthesizer developed and distributed by StudioS, and it was released December 27, 2007. The purpose was to create erotic sounds using 50 Japanese consonants along with several hundred voice clips and breathing sounds to sound like a recreation of an eroge.
 
 
Some users have attempted to make the vocals 'sing' and even proved successful by importing the Japanese syllables into Vocal Synthesis Tool, ''UTAU''. However, the H-Voice Characters are not meant for musical purposes and – like with the ''Macne Series'' – users would need to own the full versions of the software to legally be able to use this in ''UTAU'', as the Lite version of Iku and RIYONA only provide a small number of Japanese consonants and cannot make a fully working voicebank.
 
 
When ported to the UTAU software and used for 'singing', the Lite versions of Acme Iku & RIYONA have poor clarity and quality due to the demo files' compression and is difficult for even native Japanese speakers to understand. Once bought, the full versions of Acme Iku's and RIYONA's voice qualities are much better.
 
 
====History====
 
 
It is a voice synthesizing engine made to resemble VOCALOID, but it is made to create erotic sounds instead of singing. It can voice the 50 Japanese consonants along with several hundred voice clips and breathing sounds to sound like a recreation of an eroge. There are a few extras, such as the ability to insert customized special sound effects and a few BGMs. Acme Iku's voice was made to be used in games and animation and those works can be sold. However, it is illegal to distribute her full voicebank. There are exceptions with the Lite version.
 
 
On December 27, 2017, for Acme Iku's tenth anniversary, StudioS announced that there would be a new character added to the Character H-Voice Series named RIYONA,<ref>[http://b.dlsite.net/RG02419/archives/1796985.html StudioS Blog Post] Acme Iku 10th Anniversary + Riyona Announcement</ref> and Acme Iku's page on DLsite was updated as well, adding contents from the physical CD extras to the MAIDLOID editor. Anyone with a valid purchase of her on DLsite can download the updated version for free.
 
 
On February 10, 2018, the new H-Voice character, RIYONA, was released onto the DLsite and DMM for 1,620円. Her files contained over 900+ new sounds and phrases, most of which consists eroge sounds. StudioS stated that RIYONA was made with the idea in mind of using her for not only H-Games/Eroge Games but also fighting games as well, with a whole folder of voice lines dedicated to those types phrases. RIYONA uses a brand new software built by StudioS just for her vocal usage, making her the first H-Voice Character so far to not use the MAIDLOID Editor.
 
 
<br />
 
In 2011, a Japanese producer by the name of Paraoka, created three songs using the software and released a doujin album, "Training Diary".<ref>[http://web.archive.org/web/20090201000930/http://homepage1.nifty.com/paraoka/cd/ko_iku.html Official CD site:] Paraoka ft. Acme Iku (archive.org)</ref>
 
 
*'''Vocals''': The demo versions of Iku and RIYONA only include a small portion of their original libraries, their sound quality manually degraded to make the usage of the demo files less desirable, provoking customers to buy the full versions.
 
**'''Acme Iku''' (阿久女イク; (あくめいく)) is the first character of StudioS' H-Voice Character Series and uses the Flash made MAIDLOID software. Her voice is provided by the Japanese voice actress, Sayaka Keina (計名さや香; ''Keina Sayaka'') and her illustration is by Shin. Her concept is a housemaid android who is meant to be a lewd and cute character. She is 1 years old, 145&nbsp;cm in height with "NAISHO! (ナイショ!)" as her weight. Her vocal range is said to be 'good' with a lolita treble, her tempo is "H-mode" and her genres are Hentai and Ecchi. <br><br>Her name '''Acme''' in kanji is the choice of corresponding pronunciation and has no valid literal interpretation. In katakana 'Acme' in Japanese literally means "orgasm." And '''Iku''' is a common erotic moan in Japan, meaning "to come, to orgasm." As such, her name translates into a {{wp|sexual innuendo}}. <br><br>Iku is featured as a playable character in the Japanese PC doujin game ''Super Strip Fighter IV'' (スーパーストリートファイターⅣ). Her voicebank is used, and some of her attacks consist of use of her hair, she is able to use her hair accessory and throw or swing it at her opponents.<ref>[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ECN4vMn0Y8 YouTube] Super Strip Fighter IV footage</ref>
 
**'''Princess Knight RIYONA''' (姫騎士リヨナ) is the second and newest character of StudioS' H-Voice Character Series labeled as KNIGHTROID. She uses software made for Windows, which subsequently shall be referred to as the KNIGHTROID Editor. Her voice is provided by an adult game Japanese voice actress, Miki Honda (本多未季; ''Honda Miki'') and her illustration is by Shin. <br><br>Her concept is a princess knight, meant to be proud and a strong ruler, but she's also more of an older sister figure, unlike Iku. Not much is currently known about her as a character, and little is known about her voice provider other than her few roles in some eroge games. <br><br>RIYONA is featured as a playable character in the Japanese PC doujin game ''Super Strip Fighter 5'' (スーパーストリートファイター5). Her voice provider provided the samples used, and some of her attacks consist of use of her using her sword as well as the ability to use lightning attacks.

'''VOCALINA''' (보카리나) is a "text to speech" singing synthesizer and DAW for personal music-related content. It was developed in October 2011 by TGENS Co., Ltd. On September 25, 2017, it was announced by the CEO (Kang Woo-Mo) that VOCALINA's Service [http://vocalina.com/modules/notice/?process=view&idx=65&keyfield=&keyword=&page=1 would be terminated] on October 1, 2017. Contrary to this, on the 29th of September in 2017, the CEO announced they would work to [http://vocalina.com/modules/notice/?process=view&idx=66&keyfield=&keyword=&page=1 extend the service for one more year], as thanks to the community for their encouragement and support. Additionally, VOCALINA would be [http://vocalina.com/modules/notice/?process=view&idx=67&keyfield=&keyword=&page=1 free to use] until the service expired.
 
 
In terms of the quality of singing results, the engine produces a large amount of noise, despite the noise reduction engine implemented into the program. This is likely due to the synthesis method itself being {{wp|Speech_synthesis#Diphone_synthesis|Diphonetic Synthesis}}, a type of concatenative speech synthesis notorious for sonic glitches. Many users of singing synthesizers are familiar with this type of synthesis, as it is used in singing synthesizers like ''UTAU''.
 
 
====History====
 
VOCALINA Studio was first revealed before it was released with some interest-building events. After the first BETA 1.1 release, there were contests for songs and art that built the community. The community activities took place largely on [http://cafe.naver.com/vocalinaclub/3917 Cafe Naver] , but has since moved to another page on the same site. Once VOCALINA had been upgraded to version 2.0.16, the BETA got dropped from the name; it was now considered stable. The most recent version is 2.3.2, only featuring the vocalist Khylin. The program is Korean and relies solely on Hangul (Hanja isn't supported) input when using the singing synthesis. It has similar Parameters to that of many Piano Roll-styled MIDI Editors such as Pitch, Velocity, and Dynamics. VST effects like Reverb (REV), Equalizer (EQ), and Echo (ECO) are also listed as Parameters for mixing convenience. Select VSTs bundled within the Studio can be used within the VST Editor. Since it is a DAW in addition to a singing synthesizer, one is able to mix the vocals in real time.
 
 
The program launched with VORA, an idol living under cover as a high school girl. When SeeU, a Korean VOCALOID created around the same time VORA was released, there was brief rivalry between the two products. However, since then VORA has performed alongside SeeU in many songs,<sup><ref>[http://blog.naver.com/vocalina/40160624303 link]</ref></sup> such as the single "Abandoned" being performed LIVE at one of SeeU's concerts.<ref>http://www.vocalina.com/modules/movie/?process=view&idx=6695</ref>
 
 
Normally, in order to use Khylin, a user must buy a "ticket" from the VOCALINA website, which grants them usage of her voice for a month at minimum, and a year at maximum. After the period has ended, the user needs to renew the service by buying another ticket if they want to continue using Khylin.
 
 
*'''Vocals''':
 
**'''Choi Bora''' 최보라 (known by her stage name '''VORA''' 보라) was the first VOCALINA vocalist, and can be used for free in VOCALINA Studio, no purchase necessary. She was retired<sup><ref>[http://www.vocalina.com/modules/notice/?process=view&idx=62&keyfield=&keyword=&page=1 VOCALINA Studio 2.3.0 Release Notes]</ref></sup> due to being incompatible with the new 2.3.0 update of the engine, but is still available with the [http://vocalina.com/release/ 2.2.0 version]. Her official demo song is [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-_DIthRrQc Dream (드림)]. VORA's Official Album that served as her introduction demo is called "Kiss My Life", like her webcomic of the same name. It is available to be listened to [http://www.vocalina.com/modules/vocalina/?process=vorademomusic here]. <br><br>She is 17 years old, 160&nbsp;cm in height and 43&nbsp;kg in weight. Her birthday is March 20 and has an AB blood type. Her vocal range is C4~F5 with a tempo of 70~180 BPM. <br><br>Her favorite activities are singing, texting, and making phone calls. Her hobbies are listening to music and solving puzzles. Her "special skills" are organizing and managing blogs. She dislikes loud noises and raw ingredients. She is the only child in her family. She has a webcomic about her rise to stardom called [http://www.vocalina.com/modules/vocalina/?process=vorawebtoon Kiss My Life] by Taeyang. (It's written in Korean.)
 
**'''Khylin''' (formerly KHylin) 카일린 is the second VOCALINA vocalist. Her demo was first revealed on August 17, 2012 and in the video, her name is stylized as "THE KHYLIN". You can hear the demo [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiUmELlw5zQ here], but there is no indication of the song having a title. Her voice provider has sung with VORA before development, a notable duet is [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1mKfGgooxU here]. Khylin comes with every 2.0 version of VOCALINA Studio, but she is ''only'' being offered for free in version 2.3.2. <br><br>She is 16 years old and her birthday is July 28. Her vocal range is E3~E5 with a tempo of 70~150 BPM. <br><br>Khylin doesn't have any special information regarding her identity. This implies she does not have a place in VORA's "Kiss My Life" world and exists solely as an isolated vocalist. Her voice provider was revealed to be Hyo Bae Park.
