Canary (カナリー) is a voicebank for the UTAU program.

History

During 2014, Mina.Ki, Migi, Trainspud, and Purpled were working on their own UTAU projects. At the time, Mina.Ki was working on an UTAU known as "Bridget", however, this project was later scrapped. He decided to not create an UTAU voicebank at the time and only focused on assisting with other JAE UTAU PROJECT productions and plans.

In early 2018, Mina.Ki created a new UTAU character known as "Canary". While there were early artworks of the character, he was not yet considered a member of JAE UTAU PROJECT at the time.[1] This was because Mina.Ki was debating whether he should be part of the cast or if he should be an affiliate. He did not officially reveal Canary's status as a JAE UTAU character until December.[2]

Canary's voice type was entirely different to Bridget's due to the inability to recreate the same tone when recording, and had a completely different appearance. All of his demos were created and published within January 2019 and he released on February 2 as JAE-03.

After the release of Canary's Arpasing English voicebank, production for an additional English voicebank began. This voicebank became known as "Arpasing English Vivid Soft".[3] A silhouette of the design was shown in April.[4] The full design was shown on June 1 and was confirmed to be illustrated by pimienta_kast.[5]

A Japanese voicebank for Canary was conceptualized shortly after the Vivid Soft voicebank. A demo and silhouette for this voicebank was revealed in late April.[6] This voicebank was confirmed to be CVVCV and its development was later prioritized over the Vivid Soft voicebank. The illustration was confirmed to be drawn by Crispy6usiness.[7] It was later released on June 21, 2019.[8]

Canary was expected to receive DeepVocal voicebanks along with UTAU.[9] He would be the first in the JAE VOCAL PROJECT to be available for the software. His first DeepVocal voicebank released on August 8, 2019.[10]

Concept

Many years ago on a fateful day, Canary randomly arrived on Earth. He spends his days hanging out with robots and his boyfriend who happens to be a zombie.
