JD is a voicebank for the UTAU program.

History

During 2014, Trainspud, Migi, Purpled, and Mina.Ki were working on their own UTAU projects. At the time, Trainspud was collaborating with Purpled to create a character known as "JD". In his early concepts, JD did not have a biography, but it was emphasized that he was Australian. His and Ser0's productions were hinted to the public through Xiao Meihua's Facebook page on May 6, 2016.[1]

JD was in production for several years before seeing major progression in his development. In the meantime, he was featured in several different art pieces, the first being "Harmonious" by YAMsgarden.[2] In his early reference sheets, JD lacked a skin color. Because YAMsgarden's art was used as a color scheme reference at first, much of JD's early commissioned art depicted him with tanned skin. This was not adjusted until 2017.

Within the group, JD was regarded as one of the "founding characters" of JAE VOCAL PROJECT along with Meihua and Ser0. Much of their early art depicted of only the three of them, including the front page of the website when it was created in January 2018. Before the addition of Canary, Xiao Shancha, Yu Junjie, and kEna, JD was meant to be the third vocal produced and first overall male. Because their voicebanks were completed first, Canary and Shancha released before him in February 2019, taking the on the "JAE-03" and "JAE-04" codenames respectively. On March 31 that year, JD was finally added to the website and given his own biography, but lacked official artwork[3], which was the reason why he was not included in the first place. The group members thought the lack of art would be inconsistent, but changed their minds later on and added a placeholder stock image in place of a final design.

In November, JD's voicebank was finally revealed to the public. According to JAE VOCAL PROJECT, he was expected to release in late 2019 or early 2020.[4] He was officially released on December 6 as "JAE-05".[5]

Trivia

  • JD canonically has pale skin. In most of his early third-party artworks, he was depicted with tan skin. In reference to this, Trainspud headcanons that JD tans very easily.
  • JD is the only character from JAE VOCAL PROJECT whose voice provider is not an American. He is Australian.
  • There is a headcanon among the JAE VOCAL PROJECT members that JD is secretly an evil dictator.
    • This is referenced in Xiao Shancha's interactions with him. Although they are friends, she suspects there is more to him than meets the eye.
  • His release date, December 6, is also treated as his birthday.
