Synthesized music can now sound less synthesized with the latest voice bank for Yamaha’s Vocaloid software. Announced earlier this year, the Cyber Diva is the first library to have an American English female voice.

Yamaha also said that the voice bank comes with a feature called Growl Expression that gives the samples a “harsher, gruff tone.” You can pre-order Cyber Diva, Vocaloid 4 Editor and Vocaloid 4 Editor for Cubase from Amazon for $130 (USD). Head to the Vocaloid website for more info on and samples of Cyber Diva.
