Virtual vocal starlet you can easily control for pitch-perfect and timely female singing.

Modeled on the voice of a young girl pop singer, and powered by the latest Yamaha Vocaloid2 Singing Synthesis Technology, Sonika is a sweet virtual voice at your fingertips.

Sonika is a new cyberspace starlet who will hit those high notes every time with perfect accuracy. 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). 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.

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)
•Crescendo or diminuendo
•Pitch bend (amount, and positionable in time) •Glide (portamento)
•Resonance (Frequency/bandwidth/amplitude)
•Gender factor
