If you didn’t manage to get in on the beta version of Hatsune Miku NT, the official release is now here! The release isn’t without caveats, however, as only part of the software is ready for launch day.
The Original+ vocal database is the only one immediately available for use, as the Whisper+ and Dark+ DBs are being further refined before they’re pushed out as an addition via an update at a later date. This update will be provided for free to purchasers of the software. CFM staff has issued an apology for the delay in the inclusion of the other DBs.

A new demo has also been released, showcasing the raw vocal capabilities of the software, with very minimal tuning or adjustment. Everything showcased uses features built natively into the Hatsune Miku NT software and accompanying editor. The songs featured, in order, are cover versions of “Milk Crown on Sonechka” by yuzy, “Imerpial Girl” by R Sound Design, and “Hm? Ah, Yes.” by ChouchouP.
Lastly, a couple new main visual artworks were uploaded to the official Sonicwire page! The first is another standing pose of Hatsune Miku NT by iXima. Others may be added later, so be sure to check the page for updates. iXima also tweeted the photo below:
