What new things have been discovered since the prototype launch? A few quality of life tweaks. These include being able to deactivate/de-register the software from online via your Sonicwire account (versus on the computer the software was installed on), and being able to import VSQ/VSQX files (no VPR file support). This is a big relief for those who’ve had a computer fail while older software versions were still registered, as well as those who were hoping for backwards compatibility with older exported files.
There’s some issues, of course. There’s users reporting issues such as choppy shifting between vowels and consonants, crashing when adding vibrato, and issues opening complete .ppsf files (thanks to @dspear732 for these reports). There’s other bugs reported as well, but there’s already a patch on the way later this month.
Sonicwire tweeted they’ve listened to feedback from users, and will implement fixes and tweaks for Vibrato functions, sound quality and fluctuation improvements, and other bug fixes in the next update.
Hatsune Miku NT’s full software is scheduled to release for 19,800 JPY ($180) in August 2020.
