History[edit | edit source]
In 2015, in response to a fan's question, Gynoid Co., Ltd. considered a Xin Hua Append where a Japanese vocal may be present. However, for the Append to occur, Xin Hua's VOCALOID3 package must sell at least 5,000 units. It is unknown if she managed to meet this goal or if this still influenced the decision to create Japanese vocals for her.
On August 21, 2017, it was confirmed that Xin Hua would receive two Japanese vocals: Natural and Power. Her design was revealed to be her VOCALOID3 outfit and pose, but utilized one of the conceptual color schemes that VOFAN considered in the past. Pre-orders for her VOCALOID4 Japanese and Chinese packages were made available. For Japanese, these vocals would be available on Gynoid's shop as a standalone package or as a starter pack with the VOCALOID4 Editor for Cubase. These packages were confirmed to be released on September 22.
A trial for her Japanese voicebanks became available on September 7. Her Japanese and Chinese versions were made available as separate packages on YAMAHA's VOCALOID SHOP.
