I love the Project Diva and Mirai games, and especially love the music in them. I would love to have the music on my mp3 player and phone, but I have no idea where to buy/download them. I would just download the youtube videos as mp3 files, but a lot of the quality is lost.
Does anyone know? Tha~nks

They're going to be scattered around the internet, because the songs featured in her games are by multiple different people. It's best if you just do some basic Google searching on each particular song you're interested in or look into the producers you like and see if they have any album/single releases, such as Mitchie M's "39D", "The Greatest Idol" and "Realistic Virtual Singing".

There are some of the more popular albums on sale on iTunes, so you might be satisfied with just that. Just search for "hatsune miku" on iTunes and some albums pop up. https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/hatsune-miku/id307078957

Many Vocaloid albums are sold at Comiket. There are places that post links for you to download the albums, but I will not share where these sites are, since they are technically piracy. Sometimes these sites will also link somewhere for you to buy the digital album online, too.

I am not too sure about Vocaloid music, but many of the doujin works that I listen to that are also sold at Comiket will not be up for sale online. You would have to import the CDs and then directly put them on your PC. It really depends on your taste and how heavily you are into Miku.

Hi!
Well as Ocale mentioned above, the songs all scattered over the net, because they are from different producers. But there is some albums, which are named after the game and have the musics on them from the game.
You can try to get songs from iTunes, Google play or Amazonmp3.
If you can and afford, buy the music to support the producers. Some of them sometimes on youtube give out free links to download their music though. ;)

If you go for download from youtube, I recommend first download the video with a software in the best quality and after that convert it to mp3 with another software. But remember to support the authors/producers and buy the music, when it's possible

you can buy them on itunes:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/hatsune-miku/id307078957

some composers also release songs on Youtube. i wouldn't recommend downloading from youtube, if anything because of lower quality.

edit: by the by, if you have amazon prime, some miku songs are included with the prime membership, so you can stream at no additional cost.

Hey thanks! I found the soundtrack to Diva f on Amazon, but I wasn't able to find F2. Guess I'll have to search on Google or just find the songs individually.

I'm not sure about itunes. Are the songs you get from there able to be downloaded so you can listen to them offline, with any software like Windows Media Center or Rhythmbox?

Also, thanks for letting me know about that Prime membership perk! I actually didn't know that

yes, you should be able to download and listen offline. i know this because Apple gave away an album for free, and it downloaded into my computer.
as for Prime, i'm not too much into vocaloid, so i'm listening to artists like ClariS, Eir Aoi, LiSA, etc instead. :p

edit: forgot to add, if you have Amazon music app, you can download your prime songs for offline listening.
never tried this, but i suspect it has the same restrictions as videos: the song will expire after a while (1-2 day after downloading)
unless you bought the song of course. (or maybe i'm completely wrong here and it doesn't expire)

I've downloaded a number of Prime (free) songs using the Amazon Music app for Android, and haven't yet noticed anything disappearing from my offline library. I suspect the app is validating I still have an active Prime membership at least once a day, though. My owned music is unlocked and available to other apps, but downloaded songs that were added to my library for free as a Prime member are locked by DRM.

thanks for the info, and that makes sense. if you're no longer a prime member it would make little sense to still be able to access prime music (free).
