    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.

    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

    Not written in the description that it can synthetise vocal, just it's compatible with Vocaloid voice banks.
