Hiroyuki ITOH is the CEO of Crypton Future Media, INC., a music technology company based in Sapporo, Japan. Since 1995, Crypton Future Media is importing music software and various other sound media, but also developing diverse music software, such as the singing voice synthesizer Hatsune Miku which was first released in 2007. Hiroyuki ITOH has established himself as visionary “Meta-Creator”, gradually introducing advanced services that assist the creative process of Crypton product users. Among those is a platform where not only music producers but also illustration artists can exchange artwork and collaborate with each other in the creative process (piapro.jp). He has embarked on yet another new challenge: the English singing version of Hatsune Miku! The software’s release is planned for summer this year.
