Zero-G has announced Vocaloid Sonika, a new plug-in Virtual Vocalist modelled on the voice of a young girl pop singer, and powered by Yamaha's Vocaloid 2 Singing Synthesis Technology.

Whether it’s sweet and pure leads, harmonies or backing vocals, Sonika can sing any word from the English language (and other languages too with a little work), according to Zero-G. “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, ” they

In addition to singing any words or combination of syllables or phonemes you can imagine, Zero-G says 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.

You also have control over the following parameters:
  • 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.
