What Hatsune Miku Song Are You?
Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is the first Japanese Vocaloid2 in the Vocaloid2 Character Vocal Series created by Crypton Future Media. It is considered as the most popular and well known Vocaloid and the first to become a pop idol. The name of the title and the character of the software was chosen by combining Hatsu (初, first), Ne (音, sound), and Miku (未来, future) thus meaning "the first sound from the future." The data for the voice was created by sampling the voice of Saki Fujita (藤田 咲, Fujita Saki), a Japanese voice actress.
The Vocal Character series were designed to be a set of vocals with particular characteristics about them; her voice allows for manipulation in a variety of ways while maintaining a cute sounding voice as a result of this approach. Her strength lies in her ability to climb up high into the octaves while maintaining a strong mid-tone range without loosing her cute sounding vocal tone. The voicebank was considered one of the easiest voicebanks to use and is the most common voicebank bought by new Japanese users wanting to learn how to use Vocaloid as well as the most used overall. Users who could not use Miku, often did not buy another Vocaloid. She is still held in a high standard over several newer Vocaloids released after her during the Vocaloid 2 era.
