初音ミク (Hatsune Miku), is the first character in the Vocaloid Character Voice Series 2 released on August 31, 2007 by Crypton Future Media. The name of the title and the character of the software was chosen by combining Miku (未来, Future), Hatsu (初, First), and Ne (音, Sound). The data for the voice was created by actually sampling the voice of Fujita Saki, a Japanese voice actress. Unlike general purpose speech synthesizers, the software is tuned to create J-pop songs commonly heard in anime, but it is possible to create songs from other genres. Read more about 初音ミク on Last.fm.
