About Hatsune Miku.
The name of the character comes from the merger of the Japanese words for "first" (初, Hatsu), "Sound" (音, NE) and "Future" (ミク, Miku), so it means "The first sound of the future ", In reference to its position as the first of the" Vocal Series Character "of Crypton Future Media. Hatsune Miku was the first vocaloid developed by Crypton Future Media after taking charge of the release of Yamaha, Meiko and Kaito vowels. Miku was intended to be the first of a series of vocaloids called "Character Vocal Series", which included Kagamine Rin / Len and Megurine Luka. Each one had a particular vocal concept and direction.
It was built using Yamaha Vocaloid 2 technology, and subsequently updated to newer versions of the engine. It was created by taking vocal samples from the Saki Fujita voice actress with a controlled tone and tuning. All those samples contain a unique Japanese phonic that, when chained, creates complete letters and phrases. The tone of the samples should be altered by the synthesizer engine and built on a keyboard style instrument within the vocaloid software.
