Piapro Studio for v4x, with Megurine Luka V4X loaded

Piapro Studio for v4x was released in conjunction to the VOCALOID4 update.


This version of the editor was first released with Megurine Luka's new software "Megurine Luka V4X".

It used the VOCALOID4 API as its means of synthesising results and as a result all vocals released for this engine also could work on VOCALOID4. The engine version would also load all previous VOCALOID2 and VOCALOID3 vocals that would work on Piapro Studio. Certain Crypton Future Media v4x packages also came with a version of Studio One 3 or 4 Piapro Edition. This version of Studio One would work with Piapro Studio f0r v4x operating as a VST plugin.

Piapro Studio encountered problems when VOCALOID5 was released. While this did not cause Piapro Studio to cease function, it resulted in Piapro Studio results having to be manually entered in VOCALOID5, rather then being input directly and with ease with VOCALOID4. All Japanese V4X range releases had the additional feature "E.V.E.C." included. It was this function specifically that encounters errors in VOCALOID5.

Hatsune Miku Chinese was released with a "standalone" version of the software.
