Studio VOXYZ is a multimedia and singthesizer production group founded by MystSaphyr, the voicer of the UTAU Kikyuune Aiko. This site hosts downloads, media and information for all the voicebanks and characters in the VOXYZ series and related projects.
If you are unfamiliar with UTAU, here’s the basic run-down:
- UTAU is freeware voice synthesis software for music!
- “UTAU” and “UTAUloid” can both refer to the folder of voice samples used in the UTAU software.
- The technical term for such a voice folder is “voicebank” (“ongen/音源” in Japanese)
- UTAU provides you with free virtual singers that sing your songs for you!
There’s also a huge character aspect to UTAU, as many UTAU voicebanks have character avatars to represent each of them. If this reminds you of a certain hologram pop star with giant teal pigtails, you’re very close. Vocaloid (Hatsune Miku, et al) is similar software for the same purpose. There are many others as well, including but not limited to CeVio, NIAOniao, SharpKey, VOCALINA, and Sinsy.
Studio VOXYZ strives to create a multitude of high-quality UTAU voicebanks in various recording styles and languages, as well as promote the usage of such “singthesizers” in music and other media. We also seek to inform and instruct newcomers about this character-oriented vocal synthesis via convention panels and livestreams.
