Who and what is Takayuki Ryou? Where did they come from?
CHARACTER AND CONCEPT
Takayuki Ryou (隆行涼) is humanoid robot of unknown function and origin. Their name means “moving to distant heights”. They fly through space, alone, traveling from one planet to another. Their intention is unknown, however they have been known to sing. Is this something they were programmed to do? Perhaps they came from or have been engrossed in a society where its inhabitants sing to each other? Ryou’s voice seems to calm those around it, as well as themself.
Takayuki Ryou’s character design has yet to be revealed, more information will come soon.
Takayuki Ryou’s release voicebank will be a cool toned Japanese voicebank. The lower range is huskier and softer, whereas the higher range is sharper and more powerful. In addition to the standard Japanese samples, additional breaths, vocal fry, and glottal stop samples have also been recorded and will be included.
Additional features of the voicebank will be announced at a later date.
Here is a sample of the upcoming Japanese voicebank. This is not a finalized version of the voicebank, and therefore not a representation of what the final product sound like.
Releasing in 2019!
