Probably you know about Vocaloid, one of the most advanced voice synthesizers apps. Hatsune Miku, a huge successful Japanese virtual idol, was created using this software.
What you may not know is the Vocaloid software itself, which is a Yamaha Corporation trademark, was developed in a joint research with the Pompeu Fabra University of Spain. Maybe because of that, to find a Spanish company developing two new vocaloid artist is not that surprising. Their names are Bruno and Clara, and they are a creation of a company called VoctroLabs.
Following this link you will find one of their songs; quite “latino” style. They generated a lot of expectation, seeing the +23.000 views of this video; but what almost everybody agrees is the design is not best. Let’s see if VoctroLabs is able to bring this product in the correct direction.
From december of this year, these vocaloid voices will be available for your own creations (if you know Spanish, of course). They will make the announcement at their blog.
