The first official commentary guide book on using Hatsune Miku V4X and the additional bundled software will be released November 18th. The guidebook is unfortunately being published only in Japanese for now, so this would make it a collector’s item for most western composers and fans. Hopefully we’ll see some sort of translation, official or fanmade, in the future.

The book is available for global preorder via Amazon Japan for 2592 Yen:

This is a guidebook about how to fully understand the newest version of of the famous Vocaloid, Hatsune Miku.

Hatsune Miku V4X includes the vocal editor “Piapro Studio”, and the center of music creation, DAW software “PreSonus Studio One 3 Piapro Edition“.

Additionally, we have prepared wallpaper downloads for Piapro Studio! Please enjoy music creation with these extras!
