HAL-O-ROID (ハルオロイド・ミナミ) is a free singer for CeVIO based on the voice of deceased Enka singer Haruo Minami.

HistoryEdit

He was released on 20, October 2016 for download, with no previous announcements made in regards to his upcoming vocal.

ConceptEdit

Similar in nature to Vocaloid vocals " Ueki-loid" and " hide" he is an attempt to resurrect the voice of a dead singer, though is the first to be offered as a public product instead of a private project.

According to his profile his favorite food is rice and he likes all genres of music.

EtymologyEdit

"HAL-O-ROID" is a literal meaning meant to mean "Haruo droid", with "HAL-O" playing on the vowel sound of "uo" and the interchangeable nature of "l/r" in Japanese.

It is also a reference to the common use of "roid" or "loid" for "android" within vocal synthesizers, as made famous by the software "Vocaloid" (whose own name means "vocal-android" and also a play on the interchangeable nature of "l/r").

AppearancesEdit

His provider is renowned for his appearance on stage in a kimono, which was rarely seen for male singers, making him stand out. This has been carried over into the CeVIO avatar.

Voicebank LibrariesEdit

His range is A2 ~ E4 and although his original singer was an Enka singer, and thus he is best suited for this. He is capable of singing all genres.

Users will need the full version of the software to be able to use him. He is the first fully free singer for CeVIO that has been offered. To be able to activate and use HAL-O-ROID you must change your time zone to (UTC+09:00) Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo

HAl-O-ROID is of a lower quality than many other vocals released for the software. This is similar to the quality issues that past synthesizers faced when "resurrecting" a deceased singer. As shown in the past, results are often based on samples that were used for other purposes instead of recorded specifically for the synthesizer. Furthermore, there may be an absence of a sound sample or inconsistencies caused by the samples differing greatly in tone.

Additional informationEdit

TriviaEdit

  • His provider gained a lot of respect and a good reputation for his well treatment of his audience, and was known to treat them as "God". He believed that their word was correct and that a dissatisfied audience was to his own fault and not theirs. This gained him quite a following, and he became a national singer over time.
