Huan Xiao Yi (幻晓伊 | Huàn Xiǎo Yī) is a vocal for the DeepVocal engine. She was developed and released by Boxstar, and is the oldest vocal available for DeepVocal. She was originally made for the Sharpkey engine, and was the first vocal released for it.
In the same interview both the name interpretation and introduction, as well as some development information, were revealed, as shown in etymology. Her temporary name during development was "晴音 (Qíng Yīn | Clear Sound)."
Her voice provider has not been revealed, though it has been confirmed she is not involved in the VOCALOID or UTAU communities at all.
Since the debut of DeepVocal on June 7th, 2019, she has become a DeepVocal, and is compatible with that engine.
Boxstar describes her as, "..the singer who leads you to the fantasy world of music." This is reflected in her status as the first vocal developed for the Sharpkey engine. Concept art shows that Xiao Yi is based off of a piano mixed with a magical singer.
When "幻晓伊" (Huàn Xiǎo Yī) is directly translated from Chinese into English, the characters that form her name mean:
幻 (Huàn) - Fantasy
晓 (Xiǎo) - Dawn
伊 (Yī) - Beauty
