Yamaha Design “Synapses” VOCALOID 3
Produce singing by entering notes and lyrics into your computer.
The VOCALOID is a software application that uses Yamaha's proprietary voice synthesizer technology to create singing by entering notes and lyrics on a computer. The compact GUI design consists of simple lines and colors to place more importance on the character of the real star—the composer—and the character of the piece.
The control screen background has a dark tone, and with the other unified color tones, it creates an operating environment that is easy on the eye, even when composing for many hours. The screen expands to a maximum of 16 tracks, and uses 16 high-contrast colors to make it easy to differentiate all the information on the screen at a glance.
Based on Universal Design concepts, we made the tool-bar icons able to change not only in color but in size as well (version 18.104.22.168 or higher). To increase differentiation of minimized child windows on the lower-left, their borders have been special designed.
