It all starts with VOCALOID2 (the computer singing program) and the creation of Miku Hatsune as a spokescharacter for Crypton Future Media's voice-sampling plug-in for it. Her success lead to an animation program, Miku Miku Dance, allowing her fans to create videos of her singing & dancing to those songs. Variations on Miku's design appeared, followed by new Vocaloids, and now characters from other anime (I see Yui Hirasawa from K-On! and Chiyo-dad from Azumanga Daioh amidst the dancers).

The song, "Seikan Hikou", is an insert song from Macross--Frontier.

I have heard of the voice-music synthesiser computer programme Vocaloid made by Yamaha that allows users to make characters sing music by inputting melody and lyrics. The first and most widely known character is Miku Hatsune from voice sampling of voice actress Saki Fujita. Miku was the first vocaloid character, limited to singing in Japanese only; several more have appeared in later versions. Later characters are capable of singing in Japanese and English.

Miku Hatsune singing Cruel Angels' Thesis AKA the Neon Genesis Evangelion opening.

I don't know if any of these characters are capable of speaking normally. I wonder if characters from anime can be sampled? If you could get them to speak you could replace their voices in anime.  

The first time I saw Miku I thought it was fan art of Lum. There are some vocaloid renditions of Urusei Yatsura songs on youtube although I can only find one at the moment and its not a great example.

The story goes: that's why no professional singers would allow themselves to be sampled to create Vocaloid singing voices>:( (and so Crypton Digital Media went to a voice-actress instead). So, I'll bet that all the actors (mush less voice-actors) in the World are sh**ing square blue bricks over the mere idea that They Can Be Replaced With A Computer.

Nice post, Mister O'Yatsura (Irish, is it? :9 ;)).

How are voices sampled? Couldn't they just be sampled from an anime?

I doubt it, u'd need to remove all background music and sound effects to get a good sample of the voice and any interruption would ruin the sample.

Neo, Neo, Neo ... in these Modern Times, we have the technology to remove the vocals from a recorded song (these devices are available at the consumer level, if ya know where to look). It would be a simple matter to reprogram that same device/software to remove BGM and SFX from a recorded track, thus isolating the vocals. Another avenue would be to locate the original multi-track tape of the artist (considering the era in which UY was recorded), and re-master the thing to isolate the vocals.

IT CAN BE DONE!

(It's bloody amazing what can be done in a modern recording studio. Really. Case-in-point: Aya Hirano sings FLAT. WAY below pitch. Did you catch any of the Haruhi live show cuts on YouTube? HORRIBLE! She gets fixed in the mix for her studio stuff, I'm sure.)

... separating vocal from BGM requires that the two are separate tracks, there is no guarantee of finding that unless you own the original episodes.

Example, all UY episodes on youtube and veoh have one audio track so you cant separate them.

(in a mocking sing-song tone-of-voice) No, it doesn't ...! :*) Not any more, at least.
