|@ Bastian: a virtual vocalist is less expensive and easier to control (thus faster to record) than a real one. |
I don't think that was why Mike has used vocaloids. I think he used them because he found vocaloids an interesting technical gadget. He always liked technical gadgets (see all those flying objects without any sense in videos in Islands era).
That's putting it mildly. I'd say Mike has an OBSESSION for technical gadgets. Either that or he thought the public would go "wow, these voices are being sung by a computer. That's so, like, COOL, dude!" over it. I, personally, don't react like that, and the music would resonate MUCH more in me if it were sung by a real singer - i.e. 'The Gate'.
