KAT-TUN’s new song sounds like Vocaloid song?

19:24 JST November 30, 2010 17 comments

Word is spreading around Twitter that a song released by KAT-TUN last week sounds the same to a popular vocaloid creator’s song which was released in February, reports IT media today.

The song in question is the coupling song to KAT-TUN’s latest single “CHANGE UR WORLD”, “NEVER x OVER ~ 「-」IS YOUR PART”, and voice synthesizer Vocaloid LUKA MEGURINE’s “DYE”.

It has been reported “DYE” creator AVTechNO! has already released the song as a CD and it has been on sale on online stores such as Amazon and iTunes.

AVTechNO! has already blogged about the KAT-TUN song, saying he was shocked at the similarities.  The post has already received hundreds of comments from fans of LUKA MEGURINE in support of AVTechNO!

Hi :)  This is where I come in with my comments.

For those of you who don’t know what a Vocaloid is, it’s basically a computer application where you can feed lyrics and music into it, and a voice synthesizer (several voice types are available) will create your song for you.

The songs in question are as follows:

First off, I like these songs! :D

…okay, so I’ve gone slightly off track.  Sorry.

I think they sound similar but not the same…that’s just my opinion.

I must confess I’m not the world’s biggest fan of KAT-TUN, I like them and Kame’s really growing on me, so I’m trying not to take sides, but…really, they don’t sound exactly the same do they?

Hmmmmmmm, let me know what you think :)

Um, but please, I don’t want to start an online fight between KAT-TUN fans and LUKA MEGURINE fans so please don’t play dirty.

Hooray, it’s been 6 months but I’ve finally reached my 300th post XD

 

Thank you to everyone who comes here, reads my news and puts up with my occasional rants and mistakes (clap clap clap clap clap)

 

It’s Yuri Chinen’s (Hey! Say! JUMP) birthday today too!  Yay!  A few days ago Satoshi Ohno (Arashi) turned the big 3-0 too!  Wow!

And he’s still as amazing as ever, kya~~~~~

So many things to celebrate :D

 

Actually, I’ve been hearing reports that GANTZ will be shown in the US with English dubbing…arrrrrrrrgh!  Not so great…never been a big fan of dubbing…

It’s a shame, but I wonder who they’re going to get to do Nino’s voice…?

 

Anyway, have an awesome day everyone!

 

Momo xoxo
