Package details as noted:

Her voice has been labelled Loli during the Vocanama. Since she is aimed to be a Moe-centered voicebank, her voice has a natural "nasal" undertone to it to match vocals commonly used for this genre in Japanese manga, animation and music.

She was not a faithful recreation of her provider, compared to the later VOCALOID4 release Yumemi Nemu.

Vocal traits as noted:
  • Maintains its cuteness going up and down the octaves quite easily
  • Her voice is very childish and and has a nasal twang to it.
  • Her pronunciation is clear, yet maintaining a sweet, naive tone.
  • On lower notes produces an airy, whispery sound, while higher notes are sharp and clear.
  • Due to the nasal tone on her voice, in their raw state, her vocals produce a flat sound that needs further editing.
  • Despite her flat tone, she is a expressive voice with young sounding quality to her voice and a distinct sound to it.[7]
  • She works best for "pop" songs.
