Bones is an Alter/Ego vocal. He is the second default vocal for the software. He has two language voicebanks which were provided by Tora Ouji.

HistoryEdit

DevelopmentEdit

Bones development started around the time that Daisy was finished. At the time Bones was not planned to be an Alter/Ego voice. [1] The voice was introduced in Jan 2016 as the first male vocal for the software under the name of "Bones_β".[2]

In March it was reported the first working demo was completed.[3]

On October 31, 2016 Bones was released and replaced Daisy as the default bank. There was also an original song contest which took place until December of 2016. [4]

Although Bones is a free software, there is a paid physical copy that can be bought.

Cancelled voicebankEdit

Alter/Ego Chinese was first publicly considered in April 2016, and it was finally announced that Bones would have a Chinese vocal in December 2016.[5][6] The idea behind the voicebank, was to thereby prove that the engine could in fact handle Chinese and open up the option for more languages to be used in the Alter/Ego.

He later released a sample of the Chinese voice bank in its early developmental stage singing Mo Li Hua.[7]

It has been confirmed that his Chinese voicebank is now cancelled.

His developer has since retired from Alter/Ego, as they felt it did not work out for them, but will continue to support Bones.[8]

ConceptEdit

Bones is a male vocal that was released on Halloween 2016 and is now considered the default vocal for Alter/Ego. According to his Twitter profile, his location is in a graveyard.

EtymologyEdit

His Chinese name is "Lugu/颅骨".[9]
