Vocaloid Corner: Kagamine Rin/Len

Following hot on the heels of Hatsune Miku's revolution of digital vocals, the double Vocaloids, Kagamine Rin and Len (鏡音リン ・レン) came into play. They utilize the same Vocaloid 2 engine as Hatsune Miku, and are also produced by Crypton Future Media together with a handful of other Vocaloids.

Marketed under the concept of 'two Vocaloids for the price of one', Kagamine (literally 'mirror voices') Rin/Len is described as being the splitting of one soul into two, of opposite genders, so there is one male voice and female voice in the package, and with the obvious exception of pitch, the other qualities of Rin and Len's voices are the same, hence 'mirror images' of each other. Their voices are provided by one person, Asami Shimoda (下田 麻美) who has experience in providing vocals for The IdolM@ster and even lent her voice to Taiko before (Taiko DS3 theme song Dororon Girl)!

Rin/Len never flourished the way Miku did, but are still very popular in their own right. Taiko no Tatsujin's representations of the twin Vocaloids didn't start as strong as Miku, but eventually flourished in equal parts for both twins, starring both solo songs and two Vocaloid tracks mainly made by Namco Musicians and starring both Rin and Len.
