Description


Vocaloid SONIKA is a plug-in VIRTUAL VOCALIST modelled on the voice of young girl pop singer, and powered by Yamaha VOCALOID2 Singing Synthesis Technology.

Sonika is a sweet virtual voice at your fingertips, a new cyberspace starlet. Once she is installed into your PC she will allow you to create synthesized singing of unprecedented quality and remarkable realism.

MIKE OLDFIELD is just one high profile artist who has used Vocaloid to add a new dimension to his music (for example the Vocaloid sound is a key element in his album "Light & Shade" - check out the hauntingly hypnotic single he released from it, "Surfing").

Sonika will hit those high notes every time with perfect accuracy. Whether it's soaring leads, harmonies or backing vocals, Sonika can sing any word from the English language (and other languages too with a little work).

Sonika is also very well suited if you want to be adventurous and experimental, since her voice can be easily modified and shaped in many ways. In addition to singing any words or combination of syllables or phonemes you can imagine, Sonika will spread any sustained vowel (or voiced consonant) across as many notes as you like, with perfect legato. You can select from several different natural vibrato types and drag and drop your chosen type to any note or notes, and control the time-position and amount of the vibrato.

Sonika is also compatible with the new VOCALOID3 Editor.
And that's just the beginning - you have control over all of the following parameters, which you can bring to bear on any part of your creation:

- Changing syllables/phonemes
- Timing of each note (precise position/length).
- Vibrato (you can change its type/position/amount/frequency).
- Volume
- Attack.
- Crescendo or diminuendo
- Pitch bend (amount, and positionable in time).
- Glide (portamento).
- Resonance (Frequency/bandwidth/amplitude)
- Harmonics.
- Noise.
- Brightness
- Clearness.
- Gender factor.
