[Road to Miku Day] Who are the Kagamine Twins?

Ahhh, the twin vocaloids. I honestly was not going to do them second, but my friend Ron who is a huge fan of Rin asked me to do them next so as I like to do things for people they are second in this 5 part series! They have lovely blond hair don't they?

 Len's voice was achieved by singing within the chest, while Rin's at the top of  head.

Originally following Miku there was only suppose to be a vocaloid with a low teen voice, but there was also high demand for a male voice- so Crypton Future Media (the company the creates the vocaloid software) decided to make 2 voice packs using the same voice actress. Kagamine Rin was released November 8th 2007 containing a voice bank for Len as well, but on December 3rd 2007 Len was officially unveiled. Even though the first release contained two voice banks, the program was still the same price as Miku.

The twins are modled as 14 year olds, have blond hair, Len is taller than Rin and weighs a little bit more. There are currently 3 versions of the Rin/Len software with a planned  English one on the way but there is no official release date or demos set for it.

There is a very special day coming up in El Paso Texas being hailed as Miku Day El Paso 2013 aka MD39. The event will be held on March 9th 2013 at the UTEP Hilton Garden Inn from 12-9pm.  The event is very small with a few Miku related events. It is only $5 to attend. For more info, be sure to visit the event page.

Rin and Len are featured in all 3 of the concerts that will be showing at MD39 El Paso!
