E.V.E.C. function - that enables fine control of voice quality, Gender Factor, Cross Synthesis (Morphing function) and Growl functions are available, and controllable within the included "Piapro Studio" editor.
"E.V.E.C." (Enhanced Voice Expression Control) is a newly developed function to expand the singing voice expressivity.

3 E.V.E.C. FUNCTIONS
Pronunciation Extension Function (Power: Stronger Pronunciation / Soft: Softer Pronunciation)
By turning on the "Strong / Soft Pronunciation" function, that applies when the voice moves from consonant to vowel, you can modulate the strength of the voice. Especially the "Strong Pronunciation" pairs beautifully with VOCALOID4 engine's "Growl" function, enabling you to generate a screaming voice by switching to "Strong Pronunciation" and adjusting the amount of growl applied. "Soft Pronunciation" produces a breathy voice, and is perfect for gentle and quiet expressions.
* "HATSUNE MIKU V4X" implements a different "Strong / Soft Pronunciation" for each EVEC-capable soundbank, thanks to a vast amount of new samples that were recorded for this effect.
This function allows you to control overall voice (vowel voice color) expression.
("HATSUNE MIKU V4X" offers a different Voice Color for each EVEC-capable soundbank).
You can choose between "Strong" / "Soft" and you can switch the voice's overtone with "Pronunciation Extension Function".
P Power [Stronger Sound] loud voice (vowel). Give tension to the voice.
S Soft [Softer Sound] Soft and tender voice (vowel). Useful when you want to take some intensity out of the voice.
The Falsetto Function enables controlling the breath amount at the end of a word, e.g. create a slow and sexy breath out at the end of the word, etc.
- Add a long breath at the end of a word to create a slow and easy atmosphere at the end of a long vocal part.
- Add a short breath at the end of a word, even in smaller vocal phrases.
