A keyboard worn over the shoulder that “sings” in real time, using lyrics input in advance to sing with VOCALOID™ at the pitch played on the keyboard. Because no specialist PC or music production knowledge is required, and the melody and vocal characteristics can be changed freely using the keyboard and buttons, anyone can enjoy VOCALOID™ songs, making this a proposal for an all-new way of having fun with VOCALOID™. The shoulder keyboard configuration provides a feeling of unity with the instrument, and allows performers to operate the controls and add expression to the voice with their left hand while playing the melody with their right, making this an instrument that gives the player a taste of the joy of performance.
