The Kagamine twins are well known for their very clear and precise vocals, which make them able to sing a variety of genres easily, including rock and electronic pop. Just with a few tweaks here and there they could sing almost any other genres as well - the ability to switch between a more masculine or feminine voice also allows for an even larger range of possible vocals than before.

The virtual singers Rin Kagamine and Len Kagamine are both voiced by Asami Shimoda, giving them a wonderful, youthful voice.


About Asami Shimoda:
Asami Shimoda is a Japanese female voice actress and the voice provider for the Vocaloid2 Kagamine Rin and Len. She was born in 1986 in Tottori, Japan. She developed her gift as a voice actress in her high school days and received a scholarship for a voice actress school. Her professional career started in 2005, providing her voice for the computer game The Idol M@ster. This product spread her fame in the industry and her adoption by Crypton following Saki Fujita was taken with no wonder.

Hi, I'm not sure if this is correct or not, but I'm pretty sure the twins are known for their muffled voices... the reason they had to have an ACT 2. Rin also cannot pronouce the "r" sound normally... at times she will say "kokolo kala; aishielu da, ect" In some songs she will rol her "r" sound. Len might not pronouce things correctly either. This is just my opinion from my knowledge, though :)

Responding to whomever just wrote that, uh, that's not true that she pronounces them wrong. In Japanese, "r" and "l" are the same thing. You'll notice words like "lolipop" are written "RORIPOPPU" because "r"s in Japanese are pronounced like "l" anyway. Mostly, "ra", "re", and sometimes "ro" and "ru" are pronounced "la", "le", "lo", "lu". "Ri" seems to be the only one usually pronounced as "r", but it varies from person to person. Generally speaking, those with thicker Japanese accents, or little kids, say "r"s like "l"s. Hope this help. (But yes, I do agree that the twins have a somewhat muffled voice, not a perfectly clear one.)

They were realised as twins but there relationship varies in songs, BTW Rins voice is a female pubic voice that Asami produces by singing at the top of her head. where Len's MALE! but young voice is produced by Asami singing from the chest. They are both great and I think have the best reaching pitches, plus they are so kawaii,
Watashi wa kagami neren to rin wa subarashī, totemo kawaīdesu aishi, jibun no boisubanku wa, kyōi-tekina pitchi ni tassuru. Anata no koe Asami no tame ni hontōniarigatōgozaimashita
(sorry if I have typed that wrong my Japanese is off)

Just to let you know whoever made this, Len and Rin are not twins! They are in fact the same person. whoever made Len and Rin they apparently spilt them to have good vocal sounds and to increase the popularity for them. So Len and Rin Kagamine are neither twins nor are they lovers.

Rin and Len are twins of course...maybe in some videos they are not blood related...but one thing for sure is they are not same person...bcoz moat of their songs approve that they are twins like servant of evil,looking for u in the sky,a faint wish...among vocaloids, they are meant to be twins..

Actually, they aren't twins (see Vocaloid Wiki). At least not officially, mothy_P uses them as twins when they are Rilianne (Daughter of Evil) and Allen (Servant of Evil), and Hansel and Gretel (I think...), but Shuujin-P likes to use them as lovers (Prisoner/Paper Plane, Utopia) or just siblings (Orphan, A Faint Wish).
Crypton says they were created as mirror images, and there was something about them sharing a soul, but otherwise it's up to the producer of the songs.
