      KyuTurtle It has a perpetual free trial, the engine/resampler is on par with Vocaloid's quality, and it's easy to use - you don't have to learn about a lot of technical things like you do with UTAU. As of April 2019, it now supports English, Japanese and Chinese.

      it produces very nice English Vocals, it has a bit of a learning curve. It is better if you want English vocals but as of November 2, 2018 there aren't any Japanese vocals or any other languages.

      Cadencii vs UTAU opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It supports Vocaloid voicebanks as well as UTAU ones already making it a better alternative. It also has the Vocaloid 2 interface which makes it easier to use. If you want an easier interface to use your UTAU on, this is one. The only downside is that it has a bit of an obnoxious metallic noise for some voicebanks.
