History[]

Prior to release on Synthesizer V Studio, Saki was known as "JA-F2" by codename and later "Masaki" when released for Web Synthesizer V on December 31, 2019.[1] On June 26, 2020, Synthesizer V Studio made its debut and a livestream demonstrating the new engine was launched. Saki was featured in this livestream and was announced to be partnered with AH-Software Co. Ltd. in releasing her physical copies, as well as digitals from both them and Animen.[2] Pre-orders for Saki packages started on the same day.[3]

Trial versions of Saki were released for Web Synthesizer V on July 22.[4] She then released on July 30 as a Standard voice database.[5] Saki's Lite voice database was made available on the same day.

On October 30, an AI voice database was announced known as "Saki AI". Saki AI was released on December 25 and a Lite version was also made available.[6][7]

Voice Databases[]

Product Information
Optimum
  Range: C4

Versions
  Lite Version Available?: No  Starter Pack Available?: No  Web Version Available?: Yes

Package details as noted:
JA-F2 (later what came to be "Saki") is a young feminine voice database based on a professional singer. She was made to demonstrate the capabilities of Web Synthesizer V and was the first to be made available for it. This minimized voice database was optimized for the current trends in the audio production industry.[12]

Software issues as noted:
  • JA-F2's voice database was released after Synthesizer V and prior to Synthesizer V Studio, which was before the commercial versions (through Saki) were made available. Web Synthesizer V was noted to be more of a "branch off" of the Synthesizer V Studio development.[13] Therefore, it should be noted that JA-F2 may be very different to the Saki voice databases.
  • As Web voice databases are generally restricted to monopitch (one pitch) only, JA-F2's range is noted to be C4 in this version.

System requirements as noted:

Supported web browsers:

  • Google Chrome (version 77 and up)
  • Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based, version 79 and up)
  • Mozilla Firefox (nightly builds only)
