Vector PC Shop has revealed the nominees for the 28th Biannual ProRegi Awards, and one look at the Best Creator Tool category will likely turn some heads for many VOCALOID fans! That’s because IA Talk, VOICEROID 2 Yuzuki Yukari, and Otomachi Una Talk Ex have all been nominated for the category!
This award recognizes the most popular and most widely-downloaded software releases from the first half of 2017. This category was previously won by VOICEROID+ Tohoku Kiritan EX during the 27th ProRegi Awards earlier this year.
