      It's similar enough as to be easy-ish to get into when you have experience with vocal synths and you can make your own voicebanks! You do need a different program (e.g. FL Studio) to create decent USTs

      No way to use English voices or even a keyboard set to English.

      It has a truly absurd amount of voices available for use if you do even the slightest amount of googling, and can sound very good if used well. Additionally, while it may be intimidating at first, it isn't that hard to learn how to use it well.

      Very easy to just put in notes and lyrics, the arpasing vocabulary is easy to understand. And it's new! I hope more voicebanks will become available, though..

      Sinsy vs VOCALOID opinions
      Most users think Sinsy is a great alternative to VOCALOID.
      Voice synthesis in Sinsy is just as easy as in Vocaloid, despite having to create MusicXML file with MuseScore (which is also FOSS)
