VirVox Project (VirVoxプロジェクト) is a small doujin circle focused on the marketing and development of male vocal synthesis characters.

History[]

Operating under the direction of VOLOR[1] in May 2021, VirVox Project began it's first collaboration with the Synthesizer V vocal GENBU, providing him a new name (now known as Kurono Takehiro "玄野武宏") for use in the project. VirVox plans to develop male voice synthesis characters [2] and with permission from VOLOR, VirVox hopes to provide various character related merchandise such as badges, keychains, 3D models[3] and even physical copies of software such as GENBU. [4]

On May 5, 2021, VirVox Project released the full artwork previously used by AH-Software Co. Ltd. on their product page for GENBU.[5]

Official profiles for all four characters were revealed on the VirVox Project website on June 18th, 2021,[6] and a survey was conducted inquiring fans about merchandise, voice materials, and requests for future projects.[7][8] All four of the characters have acrylic figures available for purchase on the Japanese doujin marketplace BOOTH. [9]

On November 26, VirVox Project opened a new official website that covers each of their characters, terms of use, news, and promotional uploads.[10] The website also hinted the addition of two more characters, with one of them having a full silhouette teased on the website itself.

Trivia[]

  • The circle name "VirVox" is of latin descent "Vir" meaning male and "Vox" meaning voice. "Vir" was also noted to be a portmanteau of the word "Virtual".[27]
  • The four characters appear to be inspired by the Shijin (Four Guardians), sacred beats of Chinese mythology said to rule over the four cardinal directions of heaven, with each having a representative color, animal and season.
    • Kurono Takehiro - Black Tortoise, Winter
    • Shirakami Kotarou - White Tiger, Autumn
    • Aoyama Ryuusei - Azure Dragon, Spring
    • Wakamatsu Akashi - Vermillion Bird, Summer
