Sakanne's VB isn't fully done yet, aliasing and recordings-wise. However, a fresher beta had been uploaded recently. Due to unexpected computer problems, the finished/polished VB will come later.
Access to Sakanne's latest BETA voicebank : http://www.4shared.com/rar/tA7HCM4V/SakanneBetaFULL.html
It's a CV voicebank, containing Japanese, French, Spanish phonems. It's also possible to make her sing a bit in English, and also Italian, using her Japanese, French and Spanish sounds. Contains breathes sounds.
Her voice is high-pitched, but ironically, matches her character side as she tends to sound slightly husky and tomboyish in medium-to-low range (below C4). Her average frequence is B4/C5. It is also quite sharp and tonic (reference to her name which can be translated as "enrgetic sound" ).
Her voicerange is G3~G6 and her optimum range is C4~C6.
She fits better to pop, rock, electro and other genres…
The best sampler to use with her is TIPS, generally without flags, but you can still use a few if you want. If you use another sampler, be careful and use flags if you want to make her sing below C4 (except TIPS, nearly every sampler will tend to make her voice sound kinda raspy and metallic in her low range). Also works quite well with phavoco10.
Here are some examples of her singing:

Sakanne's character birthday is 2nd of March in 1994. The reason she isn't aging like is that her author wanted to keep her UTAUs staying at the age they were when she created them. Indeed, her author started to design and create her on the 4th and 5th of September in 2009. Moreover, her age was decided to be it as she was having the same age as the author when this latter created her. She is a tomboyish girl who likes frenzied songs. Sakanne is very clumsy (she's ashamed when she makes a blunder) and rather mature and can be angry when it's the straw that broke the camel's back…And sometimes all at the same time ! Fortunately, she's patient. Sakanne doesn't say her given name. However, on some papers, her signature it's "M.Sakanne". Moreover, it seems her name ends in "-ko" and it's spelt in five letters. Sakanne's best friends are Albine, Sakura (the two other members of their band "Sanloid" and her other friends are the other UTAUs created by her author. She seems to also be friend with Axel Yügure and Riley Hanshou. Admires MEIKO. Her personnality seems to be complex, despite the informations mentioned earlier. Sometimes, she feels bad, is always thinking about many things, feels very happy….As she says (even if it's Rose's quote) : "It's a nuancier of personality". Sometimes perfectionist.
Her items are turtles/tortoises and passionfruit.
She doesn't like people attacking her friends, being clumsy and making worse mistakes than Sakura.
Her favourite food along with passionfruit are paëlla, religieuses and zucchinis (only if well-cooked).
She is in fond of Spanish culture and loves the language. Sakanne is human and Japanese. As her voicer and creator is French, she is able to sing in French.
Her blood type is O.
Despite the unconsistency and depictions of her own creator/voicer, her color scheme is supposed to be coral (coral, coral pink, coral yellow).
