Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is the first Japanese Vocaloid2 in the Vocaloid2 Character Vocal Series, the third Japanese Vocaloid created by Crypton Future Media, and is the seventh Vocaloid to have appeared overall. She is considered as the most popular and well known Vocaloid and the first to become a pop idol. The name of the title and the character of the software was chosen by combining Hatsu (初, first), Ne (音, sound), and Miku (ミク, future) thus meaning "the first sound from the future." The data for the voice was created by sampling the voice of Saki Fujita (藤田 咲, Fujita Saki), a Japanese voice actress.
The idea behind her was first established as being "a cute female vocal that professionals can create from" and part of the "CV" or "Character Vocal" series who were designed to be vocals with a variety of character and colour. Hatsune Miku was unveiled on the 06/25/2007, at the time the name of "Miku" was only known. Her voicebank was at 90% production at the time of her unveiling and was the first of a series of multiple vocals planned for the Vocaloid2 software. She was worked upon for more than 10 hours a day for 2 months according to Crypton Future media. Her last name, "Hatsune", was unveiled on the 07/12/2007 after a 12 hour journey to Yamaha to gain permission to release the "CV01" voicebank. Due to problems with time, her Vocaloid 2 software did not have time to go to public beta testing unlike past Vocaloid vocals, this also was the same for Sweet Ann released prior to her.
Her voicebank received numerous awards;
■She was nominated for an award in the "All About" awards in 2007, which she later won.
