SPECIAL FOR INDONESIAN. Are you Indonesian and love Japan? You have to read this post. And believe me, you have to be proud to be an Indonesian.

I'm gonna talking about something unrelated with JUMP. Yep, VOCALOID. Does anyone here kow what's vocaloid? So, Vocaloid (ボーカロイド Bōkaroido) is a singing synthesizer application, with its signal processing part developed through a joint research project between the Pompeu Fabra University in Spain and Yamaha Corporation, who backed the development financially—and later developed the software into the commercial product "Vocaloid".  source: Wikipedia

1. First Album
Okay, that's not what I want to write here. I gonna post something about Indonesian Vocaloid Compilation Album. Yes, Indonesia people, made album for Vocaloid. And yes, I'm proud to be an Indonesian :D
The first album is here, VOCALO.ID.

14 songs in this album. There's 6 songs in Bahasa, and the other are in Japanese and English. And this is Indonesian people's work! ORIGINAL MADE BY INDONESIAN PEOPLE, EVERYONE! If you're Indonesian, you should be proud to be Indonesian. It's bloody hard to use this software, y'know. You just have to type lyrics and input the music. But there's so much lahblah thing that can't be understand by just looking at it and study just for two or three days.

My Opinion: For an amateur, and for the first time making this compilation album, these songs are great. It's cool and the quality is as good as Japanese Vocaloid song. But, Vocaloid is Vocaloid. They're just a software. They sing like a robot. But that's why Vocaloid is so popular. The robotic song they sang is really unique.

2. Second Album

You all have to know that last August 17th was my country independence day. So, to celebrate 66th Birthday of Indonesian, these great people released the second Vocaloid Compilation Album! The second album is Merah Putih Vocaloid (MPV).

For the second album, they put 8 songs. And all of it in Indonesian. Of course this album is dedicated to Indonesia. To all of Indonesia Heroes. For every blood and every drops of their sweat. Kinda funny how they sang Padamu Negeri. Their pronouncement of 'ne'. 

My opinion: I don't know what to say. But when I heard about this compilation album from my friend, I imediately confirm that I'm proud to be Indonesian. It's been around two years 
since I stepped out from Vocaloid-thingy. In short, did you ever heard a robotic yet beautiful voice sing an Indonesian song? Listen to this album and you'll be amazed.

Fyi, before these albums released, someone already made Garuda Pancasila with Vocaloid Miku, but I don't who is that person. And the song is really simple.
