    MAIKA

    MAIKA has a powerful feminine voice. In the lower registers she has a softer, more airy voice, while in the higher registers she has a more intense timbre. She has an extraordinarily broad pitch range, which switches from a chest voice to a head voice in the highest registers. This makes her voice suited for a large range of musical genres and styles.

    While MAIKA is a Spanish voice bank, she includes an extended range of phonemes which allow for great flexibility in pronunciation. You can check out some demos of MAIKA singing in other languages such as: Portuguese, Italian, Catalan, English and Japanese.

    MAIKA's artwork has been illustrated by Noriko Hayashi.

    2. MAIKA's [r\] corresponds to an English [r].
    3. MAIKA's [j\] is generally equivalent to her [j] (which is preferred); typically [j\] is only used in words starting in "y-" or "hie-".

    Note: When using MAIKA, VOCALOID Editor will only automatically transcribe lyrics entered in Spanish; for other languages, phonemes have to be entered manually or using a job plug-in.
