Using Megpoid English (Vocaloid 3) in the Vocaloid 5 Editor

Hey guys! We've upgraded to Vocaloid 5! We think this is a must upgrade if you are still using Vocaloid 3.

The Vocaloid 5 editor has a bunch of new, very useful features, such as Attack/Release parameters as well as built-in styles for the Vocaloid 5 voicebanks (which are really good. In the future, you'll hear our friends Amy, Chris, Kaori, and Ken singing with us!).

Listen to Gumi singing this Jonathan Coulton song, My Monkey, in the Vocaloid 3 Editor.

Now, listen to Gumi singing this in the Vocaloid 5 Editor.

There are subtle but noticeable differences. You don't have any built-in styles with Vocaloid 3 voicebanks like you would with the Vocaloid 5 voicebanks, but you get to modify many more parameters in Vocaloid 5. This really breathes new life into the Vocaloid 3 voicebanks. Megumi doesn't hesitate to tell Yasuko and me how much she's improved as a singer every chance she gets!

In the remix, which I think sounds better overall, I got to use some new plugins. I'm using Waves Vocal Rider on Gumi's vocals to help smooth it out better, and I'm using my new bx_bassdude plugin on the guitars and bass. This is a huge improvement over the AmpireXT amp sim that comes with Presonus Studio One. If you don't have any need for metal type amp sims and only want that Fender sound, bx_bassdude is the plugin to get!
