Affiliation

Hatsune Miku (derived)

Hatsune Mikuo is the popular genderswap based on official Vocaloid Hatsune Miku.

Design

Mikuo's design is often reminiscent to that of Hatsune Miku, a Vocaloid 2 developed and distributed by Crypton Future Media. There has been no defined design, since it varies from artist to artist, although he is commonly seen wearing a sleeved shirt and pants. The most popular hairstyle for him is short with bangs, though a ponytail has often been seen. On his left upper arm is the red mark "01", which is Miku's series number.

Personality and traits

Mikuo has no defined personality, as he is an open source character. His height, weight, and optimum voice settings are undefined as well. This is because portrayals of him vary from artist to artist, he's commonly portrayed as tall and muscular or of small stature with a build similar to Miku.

Biography

Source: Vocaloid Wiki

Mikuo came to be as a result of extreme down pitching of Miku's songs, and possibly a desire to have Miku sound masculine. His visual characteristics followed soon after.

Mikuo's depiction varies; he's often portrayed as Miku's sibling, either as a twin or an older brother. And although he is one of the Vocaloid derivatives that continues to be popular, he is not officially recognized by Crypton Future Media. [1]

Voice configuration

Having a history of being a mere Pitchloid, Mikuo was not easy to tune for Vocaloid; sometimes he still has hints of Miku's voice characteristics, or doesn't sound convincingly masculine. This limitation has since been overcome thanks to the efforts of many fans who wanted a proper configuration for Mikuo.

These configurations are also applicable to V3-- it is safe to ignore the Opening parameter. Additionally, the configuration can be applied to Hatsune Miku English; using it grants Mikuo the ability to sing in English.

These examples of configurations on the Fanloid wikia should not be viewed as being widely accepted or acknowledged by Crypton Future Media or Yamaha.


Configuration: Hatsune Miku

 EXPLAINED:
This is an earlier attempt to tune Miku into Mikuo, which is said to be quite unstable.
 TECHNICAL INFORMATION
BREATHINESS (BRE) 0 BRIGHTNESS (BRI) 80 CLEARNESS (CLE) 40
GENDER FACTOR (GEN) 80 OPENING (OPE) 63
 SPECIAL NOTES:
Mikuo may need dynamic Gender Factor editing in the sequence roll in some cases.


Configuration: Hatsune Miku 2

 EXPLAINED:
Esrael has made a voice configuration for Mikuo. The sole purpose of the configuration was to generate a decent male voice for choral works. Therefore, the voice may sound too deep to fit Mikuo's aesthetics.
 TECHNICAL INFORMATION
BREATHINESS (BRE) 0 BRIGHTNESS (BRI) 127 CLEARNESS (CLE) 0
GENDER FACTOR (GEN) 106 OPENING (OPE) 0
 SPECIAL NOTES:
These settings have been used as is for both bass and tenor voices, with no additional tweaking of the parameters. All parameters can still be freely customized according to the user's wishes.


Configuration: Hatsune Miku 3

 EXPLAINED:
Another configuration by Crossfrown, designed to fit Mikuo's aesthetics.
 TECHNICAL INFORMATION
BREATHINESS (BRE) 0 BRIGHTNESS (BRI) 127 CLEARNESS (CLE) 0
GENDER FACTOR (GEN) 45-50, 65 OPENING (OPE) -127
 SPECIAL NOTES:
The gender factor set to 65 is the standard configuration. Lowest note recommended for this configuration is C2.

With the gender factor set to 45-50 the voice is designed for a younger range. Highest recommended note is C3.
For both the standard and young range configurations all the other parameters are freely customizable.


Configuration: Hatsune Miku 4

 EXPLAINED:
A Special configuration by ZeRX (User:180.247.97.109), designed by an accidental discovery.
 TECHNICAL INFORMATION
BREATHINESS (BRE) 0 BRIGHTNESS (BRI) 127 CLEARNESS (CLE) 0
GENDER FACTOR (GEN) 127 OPENING (OPE) 0
 SPECIAL NOTES:
This configuration is a bit unstable, but considered masculine enough, according to ZeRX.

Notable media

The following songs were created by configuring Miku's voice in Vocaloid, not by merely down pitching existing songs with a third-party audio program.

Additional info

Media trivia

peace maker

In this song, Mikuo is a soldier. He sang about his lover (Miku) and his mission to destroy the 'yellow diva' (Rin). In the end, Mikuo was killed by a boy (Len) for revenge.

LIGHT

An original song by Aria-P. In this song, Mikuo is shown to be a 'bug' in Miku's voicebank. The Master of the computer wants to update the voicebank so no 'bugs' will be seen ever again. This song is about Mikuo spending his last moments with Miku before his 'deletion'.

Relationships

  • The proposed fanon relationship appears to be popularized by pairing Mikuo with Megurine Luki, Megurine Luka's genderswap. And depending on the intention it is either brotherly or romantically.
  • And as previously mentioned, the relationship when paired with Hatsune Miku varies, though it is commonly established as being sibling related.

Trivia

  • No one truly knows who first coined the name Mikuo.
  • The name ミクヲ (Mikuwo) or ミク♂ has also been seen, but both are not as frequently used as ミクオ (Mikuo).
  • Mikuo is among the first generation of Fanmade Vocaloids that are what today are called Pitchloids.
  • On 29th of May, it was known as 'Mikuo Day 2011'. A number of fanmade PVs, and covers using Mikuo were posted to celebrate that day, and can be found with the tag 'ミクオの日2011' in Nicovideo.
