LOLA from Zero-G is a virtual female vocalist that functions as a VST instrument within any VSTi capable host software running under Windows 2000/XP. Based on research from Yamaha's Singing Synthesis Technology, LOLA can perform a wide range of singing techniques and sing virtually any word in English.
While not quite ready to replace the likes of Celine Dion, the software none the less is quite suitable for creating background voices or for experimental music where the composer wants a voice to do the humanly impossible.
The software comprises three parts - Vocaloid Editor, Vocaloid VST Instrument and Vocaloid LOLA Female Vocal Font. To create a vocal part, music and lyrics are entered into the editor. The data that was entered in the editor is then sent to the synthesis engine, which fetches what it needs from the phonetic and expression databases to synthesize the track.
