Chiyu (赤羽) is a Chinese Synthesizer V voicebank developed by Beijing Photek S&T Development Co., Ltd. and was released on April 30, 2019. She is part of the Medium⁵ cast.
A shape known as the tetrahedron appeared on Chiyu's logo. It is present in the second stroke of "赤" character in her name. In the spiritual meaning of Metatron's Cube, the tetrahedron represents fire, which influenced her design, name, and concept.
In March 2019, Chiyu was revealed to be part of the Medium⁵ cast and was one of the girls who derived from a single being known as ZERO who possessed Metatron's Cube.
Chì (赤) means "red" or "scarlet" while yǔ (羽) means "feather", "plume", or "wing". Yǔ is also the fifth note in the Chinese pentatonic scale (la). Together, her name means "scarlet feather".
On November 13, 2017, the head of Beijing Photek S&T Development Co., Ltd., Ddickky, noted that people seem to think that Xingchen was easy to manage because she was the company’s only VOCALOID. He mentioned that he wanted to try to "have five to take care of" to see how challenging it was to manage more characters and asked fans to "stay tuned". This seemingly hinted that there may be additional characters aside from Xingchen in the future. Later that month, it was mentioned that because Beijing Photek wanted to save money to produce content, some big news would be announced at Quadimension Live Tour rather than at a separate conference. This included new merchandise, new official art, and if there was time, new games or voicebanks. It was not specified if these voicebanks were for Xingchen or for any new characters. Details about the announcement are currently unknown.
On April 14, 2018, Ddickky mentioned that the names and designs of the fire, earth, and air characters were decided. While it was not stated what this refers to, it was possible that these characters may be part of Xingchen and Haiyi's series.
On November 9, Haiyi mentioned some "younger sisters", possibly referring to the other elemental characters within the series though not explicitly confirmed.
On February 1, 2019, Chiyu's name appeared in a crossfade video for Haiyi's solo album "Atlantis".
On March 28, Ddickky posted on weibo that Chiyu, Shian, Cangqiong, two Xingchen voicebanks, and an unknown male voice were moving over to Synthesizer V. On April 9, Chiyu's silhouette was shown. Her voice was shown the next day, although she only sang in "Na"s. Another demo was shown and written by kide.
On April 16, it was announced that Chiyu's voicebank would be available for preorder starting on April 19. According to her product page, it was confirmed that she would release on April 30 as a digital download. It was revealed on her first demo that she was designed by Hanasa, ATDan, and Kurumimi. Her voice provider was confirmed to be 呦猫UNEKO.
