MEGURINE LUKA V4X

A brand-new function in the new software MEGURINE LUKA V4X allows you to vary the expression and control the strength of each word! The bilingual vocalist sings seamlessly between styles such as sweet breathy voice and growling voice.

「巡音ルカV4X」は、表現力を向上させるための機能を盛り込んだ日本語/英語のデータベースを2種類ずつ収録。それぞれクロスシンセシス(歌声モーフィング)とグロウル(唸り声)機能に最適化され、簡単操作で声の張り具合を変化させたり、ガナリ声の表現が出来るようになりました。また日本語では、当社で新たに設計した「E.V.E.C.」(イーベック)機能を使って、歌の中で音符ごとに声の表情が変更可能。従来の歌声ライブラリーにはない表現力を備えています。しっとりとしたAメロでは、吐息で囁いたり、メロディが駆け上がるサビでは低域から高域に向かって力強く歌いあげたりと、一つの楽曲の中で表現をコントロールすることが可能です。更に、「E.V.E.C.」などの歌唱機能とピッチグラフィック機能に対応した新しいPiapro Studio、500種類以上の楽器を収録した音楽制作ソフトStudio Oneを同梱しているので、買ったその日から、音楽制作環境が整います。

The database contains both Japanese and English and it is compatible with all the functions such as E.V.E.C, Gender Factor, Brightness, Cross Synthesis (morphing function), Growl (growl-like expressions to the voice), which can be operated through bundled vocal editor "Piapro Studio".

Japanese Database Suggested Tempo: 50~170BPM / Recommended Vocal Range: E2~F4

In Japanese, the newly Crypton-developed function "E.V.E.C." makes it possible to control the tension of the voice at each note, the variation in vocal sounds, breath length and intensity, and the emphasis of consonants at the end of a word. While Cross Synthesis (Morphing Function) makes it possible to control the voice type, the Growl function enables an expression of a roaring voice. By combining those new functions, it’s possible to give a wide variety of vocal expressions.

DB - HARD

This database is characterized by a powerful voice that increases in strength as the pitch gets higher. It’s suitable for expressing sharpness and precision in the voice when combined with the Voice Color control of E.V.E.C. It’s also possible to set accents in the voice such as adding intensity of mouth closure and partially creating a cuter voice tone.

DB - SOFT

This database is characterized by a soft and gentle voice. By combining the Voice Color function of E.V.E.C together with this database, it’s s possible to express the fragile sound of breathing that is suited for singing a ballad. It makes it possible to give dynamic expressions which weren’t possible to express with the previous Soft/Whisper Database by putting stronger Voice Color accent.

English Database Suggested Tempo: 50~170BPM / Recommended Vocal Range: G#2~C4

In the English voice bank, the Cross Synthesis function makes it possible to control tension and strength level by cross synthesizing the 2 databases STRAIGHT and SOFT. The Growl function enables to express additional tension and roaring in the voice.

DB - STRAIGHT

This database is characterized by its smooth voice quality with a natural pronunciation. The Cross Synthesis function gives you full control over the voice’s tension.

DB - SOFT

This database is characterized by its soft and gentle voice. The Cross Synthesis function gives you full control over the voice’s tension.
