HAL-O-ROID Product | Originals


HAL-O-ROID (ハルオロイド・ミナミ) is a Japanese CeVIO Creative Studio voicebank by Teichiku Records Co., Ltd.. He is capable of singing.

He was derived from the deceased Enka singer Haruo Minami.

ConceptEdit

Similar in nature to VOCALOID™ vocals "Ueki-loid" and "hide" he is an attempt to resurrect the voice of a deceased singer, though is the first to be offered as a public product instead of a private project.

According to his profile his favorite food is rice and he likes all genres of music.

EtymologyEdit

"HAL-O-ROID" is a literal meaning meant to mean "Haruo droid", with "HAL-O" playing on the vowel sound of "uo" and the interchangeable nature of "l/r" in Japanese.

It is also a reference to the common use of "roid" or "loid" for "android" within vocal synthesizers, as made famous by the software "VOCALOID" (whose own name means "vocal and roid" and also a play on the interchangeable nature of "l/r").

AppearancesEdit

His provider is renowned for his appearance on stage in a kimono, which was rarely seen for male singers, making him stand out. This has been carried over into the CeVIO avatar.

HistoryEdit

MarketingEdit

HAL-O-ROID was released October 20th, and is free to download. With no prior announcements made in regards to this upcoming vocal. His provider gained a lot of respect and a good reputation for his well treatment of his audience, and was known to treat them as "God". He believed that their word was correct and that a dissatisfied audience was to his own fault and not theirs. This gained him quite a following, and he became a national singer over time.
