Vocal Range

ASTERIAN's primary vocal range is from C2-F#4, with an additional Falsetto range from G4-C5. The parts of the range in his normal and falsetto tones can be expanded or reduced through the usage of different vocal modes in Synthesizer V Studio Pro.

Vocal Modes

ASTERIAN has 9 vocal modes available for users of Synthesizer V Studio Pro.


Suggested Range: [TBA]

Suggested Combinations:

  • Open - adding "Clear" when using "Open" allows you to bring out more enunciation in ASTERIAN's rounded, dramatic "Open" style.

  • Strained - using "Strained" and "Clear" together creates a bright and tense tone for ASTERIAN.

ASTERIAN's "Clear" vocal mode adds a degree of brightness and thins out some of the additional resonance in his voice. This can be used in small amounts to help cut through a mix, or in large amounts to change the vocal tone more drastically.

Pre-Release Demo Songs

As ASTERIAN was our second vocalist, we wanted to go beyond what had been done previously for SOLARIA's release lead-up. This began with ensuring ASTERIAN had more demo songs available than SOLARIA did on release. As a result, while SOLARIA's release began with 4 original demonstration songs - for ASTERIAN, we aimed for 5.

In "If You Are an Echo", nostraightanswer debuted ASTERIAN alongside SOLARIA in this mellow duet, showcasing his gentler vocal modes as well as manual stylization by avoiding auto pitch tuning functions.

"Ad Astra" is an intense rock piece by Kohikohi showcases ASTERIAN's powerful side, a resonant and commanding bass vocal that easily fronts even the most dramatic songs.

This nostalgic song from Penelope Aveline shows a soft side to ASTERIAN's voice - a warm and emotional tone enhanced by his unique Instant Mode pitch calculations that bring in the natural charm of the voice provider, Eric Hollaway.

This jazz-rock fusion piece by Derek Spear showcases ASTERIAN's playful side (and Instant Mode pitch functionality) as a lead singer for the imagined jazz club ‘Nocturne Alley’, where even scat singing can be performed by this AI singer without sacrificing any realism.

Kkiquu brings a more contemporary sound out of ASTERIAN in "Venom", using manual pitch adjustment to pull ASTERIAN's warm bass tone into more of a pop stylization.

Promotional Images

During ASTERIAN's promotional period, we worked with comic artist rice to have original comic strips created to highlight his unique charms. rice created 3 different comics: the first depicted SOLARIA's anticipation while waiting for ASTERIAN to arrive, the second showed their first introduction, and the third highlighted ASTERIAN's uniqueness as a vocal provided by Eric Hollaway, a voice artist primarily known for his extremely popular TikTok account.

Development Challenges

Despite ASTERIAN's seemingly smooth announcement and promotional period, ASTERIAN faced some trouble internally during development. ASTERIAN was more difficult to work on than previous vocals, his incredibly deep voice required an update to Synthesizer V Studio itself that Dreamtonics was very kind to prepare for us. On top of that, Eric Hollaway, ASTERIAN's voice provider, had to evacuate due to a hurricane in the middle of the recording period. These complications and more behind the scenes lead to a compressed commercial announcement and series of promotions, rather than what we originally hoped for. Unfortunately, our demo songwriters had to prepare most of their songs before ASTERIAN was even finished, which also impacted the pre-release demonstration set. Even with all of these difficulties, ASTERIAN is an incredible, unique vocal that we are more than honored to have as part of our lineup. We hope to focus more attention on him soon for his upcoming release anniversary.
