Daisy is an Alter/Ego vocal. She was the first vocal presented for the software and, for a time, its default. Her voicebank consist of English and Japanese capabilities and was voiced by Crusher-P, a VOCALOID and UTAU producer and is illustrated by the artist, Pixoshiru.[1]

HistoryEdit

Daisy was produced as an experimental voice. Her creation led to the development of a separate software to handle modern vocals, Alter/Ego.[2]

Daisy was unveiled on August 26th, 2015 as the first vocal for Alter/Ego. She was offered as a demonstration vocal and was distributed for free.[3] Alongside Alter/Ego itself, she was released on 9th September 2015.[4]

Daisy was set up for retirement on 31st October 2016. The reason for her retirement was said to be technical related. Bones became the default vocal for Alter/Ego instead.[5] Her copyright was also held by Crusher-P, who made the call to retire her.[6]

The original link to her download has been removed.

ConceptEdit

Daisy is a lonely time traveler and the estranged lover of Dandy 704 from Chipspeech. The Chipspeech characters bring her name up from time to time, and although Dandy has feelings for her, he has no memory of her. Being a time traveler is are reference to her ability to be imported into Chipspeech. Chipspeech is based on pre-90s vocal synthesizer technology and is focused on "the past" while Alter/Ego is focused on "the present-future".

In the worlds of Alter/Ego and Chipspeech, Daisy is regarded as a temporal anomaly.[7]

According to Dee Klatt, Daisy used to get stressed out over colours and cats. She also used to say bad things but meant well.[8] She also has an unknown secret mission.[9] Spencer AL2 also noted when she left, codes appeared.[10] He also would like to find her to question her and would search for her if he could.[11]

EtymologyEdit

AppearancesEdit

Daisy is a human female with white hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. She wears a blue hat, dress, and bracelet.

The background of her Alter/Ego version features her leaving a steam powered time machine. On it is a Back to the Future-style Flux Capacitor.

RelationsEdit

  • Dandy 704 and Daisy's relationship is a nod to the song "Daisy Bell", which was sung by the IMB 704 of which Dandy is based upon. This was the first ever song sung by a computer. This is further backed up by Daisy's Twitter account being "Daisy__Bell_".
