Gahata Meiji (歌幡メイジ (がはためいじ)) was a voicebank for the UTAU program. She was a collaboration with the Lifulu shop. Despite being inactive, she is still one of the more popular voicebanks and is known for being high quality.

History

On March 8, 2014, two years after Meiji's release, Saccu began releasing append-like voicebanks themed around fairy tales and magic. These voicebanks cover a considerable amount of singing styles and genres and are considered the successors to the original three voicebanks.

As of November 11, 2019, Meiji has been discontinued and her website and voicebanks are no longer available. She has been succeeded by Saccu's newer UTAUloids, Bibi Jyougasaki and Wistaria Toujoh. However, those who downloaded Meiji's voicebanks prior to her discontinuation are still free to continue using them.

Concept

Meiji was a witch. She was a combination of a fashion model and singer, and based around a theme of magic and fantasy. She was "a bit of a dreamer" and "yearns to be a heroine". She had a little demon companion/servant, named Frill. It was a genderless creature that looked like a dressed candle with wings and a tail. It was described as a fragile and emotional being, and its flame size and color changed depending on its mood.

Reputation

Meiji is known for her high-quality vocals and human-like vocals.

On July 2014, Sasaki Wataru (also known as Wat), Crypton Future Media VOCALOID developer and creator of Hatsune Miku, announced Meiji would be used in the development of Megurine Luka V4X as a template to bring out the unique qualities of Luka's voice provider, Asakawa Yu.[3] It is also rumored that she inspired the development of a growl feature in Vocaloid 4, though no evidence to support this has been found.

Meiji has an official MMD model created by MMD modeler hatuki. It was initially introduced by Saccu through a video on Niconico and can be downloaded here. The password is majo.

Trivia

  • Even after Meiji's retirement, Saccu made a reference to Meiji when playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, designing an in-game dress based on one of Meiji's witch design.[4]
