Who is Itako & What is VOICEROID?
For those of you who do not know, VOICEROID 2 is a speech synthesis software, in which users can input text and have it read aloud by the voice they select.
You can also add styles to the voices, such as ‘powerful’ and ‘warm’, and adjust the settings to affect how the voice sounds.
There will be three versions of Tohoku Itako available at launch, with the physical versions currently available to reserve from the AHS store.
The three versions include a standard physical version, a discounted AHS User Special Edition physical version and a download version.
The standard version is currently priced at ¥15,800 (approx $139), though this version has a recommended retail price of ¥16,800 (approx $147) so be sure to make a reservation if you want to purchase Itako at this discounted price.
The AHS User Special Edition is a limited edition priced at ¥14,800 (approx $130) and is only available to AHS users who have AHS products registered to their account. Please note that this version is only available through the AHS store.
For those who do not require a physical edition, there will also be a download version available, which is priced at ¥11,800 (approx $103). However, there are no reservations open for this version at this time.
