1. Which synthes and sound libraries for backing are the most popular among current Vocalo users?

I learned that the famous creators are called "Vocalo P" (P = producer). I searched some of their websites and blogs. Here's an overview about their favorite sound libraries and synthes.

Bass: Spectorasonics Trilian, Prominy SR5 Rock bass, NI Scarbee Basses
Drums: FXpansion BFD, NI Battery, dfh SD2, dfh EZ drummer, etc.
Synth: YAMAHA Motif (HW), Roland Phantom (HW), Cakewalk D-Pro (SW), etc.
Guitar: Real guitars played by themselves, Prominy LPC, Steinberg Virtual Guitarist
Keyboard: Synthogy Ivory 2, Modartt Pianoteq, NI Scarbee Vintage keys

As of now, unfortunately Overture doesn't have any official VSTi xml, any drum map and any "ins" file for them.

Tokyo Polytechnic University conducted an interesting survey. According to it, about 25% of people in 10s, 20s and 30s in Japan show a desire to begin to do PC music creation. They also like Vocaloid music, and especcially 40% of teenage girls love vocaloid music the most of all music genre. Thinking about it, recently Vocaloids are getting to sing much naturally than before.

The report of the survey written in Japanese.

I have yet to hear a convincing English demo of Vocaloid. While the "simply insert melody and lyrics" part of the editing has improved substantially, the quality and realism of the resulting vocal is still a couple of years away. Nevertheless, I am impressed with the progress of this technology and its potential.

It won't be long before this software becomes the Autotune of the music industry. Although, it appears it has already reached that status in Japan. :)

Yeah, to my ears they sing Japanese as 70% naturally as human. There are some vocaloid-craftsmen who excel at moderating the song data. And, since 50 years ago Japanese always love humanlike robots.
