This is an article about the VY1 software for the VOCALOID5 engine.


On July 2, 2018, it was announced that the VOCALOID SHOP would cease distribution of the VOCALOID4 editor, the VOCALOID4 editor for Cubase, and the VOCALOID4 starter packs. In addition, VY1v4, VY2v3, CYBER DIVA, and CYBER SONGMAN were confirmed to be taken off of the site as well. This was set to occur on July 12.[1]

On July 12, VOCALOID5 was announced and released. It was available in two versions: Standard and Premium. The standard package included 4 standard vocals: Amy, Chris, Kaori, and Ken. The premium package included the 4 standard vocals and an updated version of VY1, VY2, CYBER DIVA II, and CYBER SONGMAN II.[2] However, it is possible to purchase the VY1 VOCALOID5 voicebank on its own.
