On VOCALOID Wiki we have several bot accounts. The two oldest ones are Tasks126, a bot account belonging to Xuanmien ; and Decembirth, belonging to Bunai. These two bots use the AWB program, an interface permitting for the bots to make many massive and repetitive tasks.
And I'm here to introduce you Tokikobot... It's been one year this little bot is running through the wiki every 10 days... But it's time to publicly tell what she is used for and her limits.
If you can give an alternative and "less pretty" name to Tokikobot, this would be the acronym VWVCU, or VOCALOID Wiki View Counts Update.
The name of Tokikobot is... Not a derivative of my name, but it's inspired by the name of Tokiko Zaizen in the game The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls. It's e…

Current task, replacing the template Derivatives by the new one Derivative.
- Problem: do you see how long this list is??
- Purpose: delete soon the former template so no one gets confused between which template to use.
This blog post will help you for the task.
First, it is advised to study how each template is done.
According to the documentation of the obsolete template Derivatives, this template uses the following arguments:
- 00_id : Replace "00" by the corresponding code
depending of the platform. nnd_id, nn_id, yt_id, bb_id, pp_id,
sc_id... This is where all IDs are set.
- sometimes is followed by 00_comment by replacing "00" by the same code for the corresponding platform.
- author : producers of the work
- singer : vocals in the work
- category : type of t…

I haven't brought something up like this in a long time, but one of the things that we'd probably like to see more of is more song pages for the newer VOCALOIDs.
It's been a few years for some and to see how there aren't many pages to browse is a little worrying because we all know there's got to be more swimming around on these platforms. Something that can be measured as a "rule of thumb" if you will, is giving the vocals a common goal: a minimum of at least 20 pages.
For some, that would be easy! For others, to this day, they might not even have 20 original songs. That's what this blog and list is for: to keep track of who needs it.
Because blogs are easier for me to manage and I still dislike the new discussions format a lot. This is the s…

Some of you know me, and some of you don’t. For those who don’t, I am Speedy, a Youtaite and generally inactive user on the wiki, as of now at least...
I’ve been here for about 2 years, and it doesn’t even feel like that long. I’m still relatively new here, so, get to know me however you like. Anyways, while I was gone, something changed. But I should start with what happened before that. Way before that.
Recently, I changed my gender section to “Questioning identity”. It seemed so sudden, and I’m not surprised if you thought, “What the hell is this? Is she going through a crisis??” I kinda was...with no internet access on my phone, my PC, anywhere, really, I felt trapped and sad. I have few offline friends, so I felt lonely. But enough abou…Read more >
Except not really because I’m going away soon again. But if you want to contact me, email me! My email is email@example.com! Just state who you are, and you’re good to go!
Why did I go away? Long story really, and I don’t want to talk about it. But I’m willing to share some new stuff with anyone who is willing to talk!Read more >
I have this thought in my mind for more than a month now. I decided to share this once for all.
First I would to say, I am not fluent in Chinese as you would think. I may be born in Mainland China, but this does not mean I understand all of the everyday words that other native speakers knows. What I mean is I only completed 2 grades in China: 1st and partially 2nd, which is really embarrassing to share out.
The moment I immigrated to United States, my Chinese language proficiency slipped off real bad, the undesired result of vocabulary and...Chinese grammar too.
As I mentioned, I am a Zh-En translator, but usually the quality of the translation is not-so-good either. I have made a lot of mistakes that other Wikia users have to clean up after. I…

I know that the release of the song Master of the Heavenly Yard marks the end of The Evillious Chronicles, but I wonder: is this really the end? Or is there so much more to tell? My thoughts are that while it may have concluded with Master of the Heavenly Yard's release, it's not over. Since Riliane and Allen initiated a Re_birthday, creating a new world, that, to me, marks the end of the Third Period and the start of the Fourth Period. There could be a whole new story to tell with the start of the Fourth Period and the creation of the new world, such as the reconstruction of Lucifenia, Beelzenia, Asmodean, Marlon, Elphegort, Jakoku, and Leviant, the future of the contractors who have/may have repented for their sins, and more.

Meiko (Japanese: メイコ) (stylized as MEIKO) is a humanoid persona for Yamaha Corporation's Vocaloid singing synthesizer application. Her voice is sampled by Meiko Haigō. She has performed at live concerts onstage as an animated projection along with Crypton Future Media's other Vocaloids (like Hatsune Miku). She was the fourth Vocaloid ever released and the first to sing in Japanese.
The name of the character comes directly from her voice provider's name, Haigō Meiko. Meiko's codename was "Hanako"; it likely came from Yamada Hanako (山田花子), a placeholder name for female characters, and the Japanese equivalent to "Jane Smith". "Megumi" was also a name considered during her development.
Meiko was developed by Yamaha and sold by Crypton Future M…

I currently have VOCALOID4 with the Kagamine V4X bundle. The voices may not be the best (English is definitely the weakest for both), but I purchased them nonetheless and don't regret my decision. I've had the program for three years, and have barely touched the V4 editor by Yamaha, mostly because it felt odd to use and hard to manage. Since V5 came out around a year ago, I have listened to songs by some famous producers I thought were "mediocre" when it comes to tuning. VOCALOID5 actually does a pretty good job at masking the "synthetic" aspect of voicebanks when tuning is done right. I think it's wonderful, especially since some v1-esque aspects came back. The only issue I have is my rationality. My heart is telling me to get V5, whereas…Read more >

Here is the original wiki page
My sad darling
Kiss me right here and now
Before you are bound to her
But we can’t go any further than this because the both of us are-
Together on the road back home
Until the bell for the last train sounds
There’s still another 15 minutes left.
When the magic wears off
We’ll return back to our original suit and uniform
Another 5 minutes left.
Even on Christmas eve and birthdays I can’t be by your side
I’m left behind as I’m nothing but your second lady
I block the door in hopes that I won’t have to wake up from this dream
For just 10 more minutes, even 5 is fine.
Please just look at me!
Please don’t go, darling

Before you become bound to her

Now I know that there is some concern for Piko due to him not getting an update, and that there is uncertainty over wheather or not you can get a import code but I wanted to confirm that yes, you can still get a import code for Piko. (At least in 2019)
I have heard that since V2's permanent retire, you can get a import code from YAMAHA but that seems to no longer be the case.
You'll want to email any import requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Something to note however, you may want to send the email and have its title in Japanese. I at first sent a bilingual email with a English title to no response. A week later I resent it completely in Japanese and I did get a response.
(Also, make sure to send your Piko serial code in the email)
However, if you want a …

So I guess that enough time has passed where I can give my thoughts on VOCALOID5. (I posted a review on Equipboard that will basically sum this up if you don't wanna read allof this: link)
For those who don't know, VOCALOID is my favorite thing in the world. I love every single one of them (even the ones that I "hate").
Infact, it is a obsession and I may have a problem.So I guess if someone like me says that they have a problem with a VOCALOID product, something must be up.
VOCALOID5, as nice as it may look with some cool new features it has had a abundance of bugs and glitches that can make it unusable. The software would fix a glitch in an update, however would also introduce a new one in that same update. The first most noteworthy glitch …Read more >

What necessarily makes a good one though? I'm kind of asking that myself sometimes.
Rather then keep repeating myself, I'm going to write this blog and link to this in future.
I'm going to update this as I remember what to note.
I'm going to describe the aura of the time Piko came out;
Basically in 2011 a large number of fans began to compare Vocaloids that were coming out and it got silly. As a consquences, there were knee-jerk reactions to this. When people said things like VY1 sounded like Miku Dark, people took it as an excuse the poster was trying to say VY1 wasn't special and they got a bit stubborn about the issue. There was also a sense of this towards everything; design, name, you name it they would react to comparisons being made of it with a grudge.
People didn't want the newer Vocaloids to be put down and believ…

So I'm bored and decided to rank the Vocaloids of CFM for no other reason then I don't know if I've done it yet.
They've had 5 releases; Act1, Act2, the Appends, V4x and English.
And of those 5 only the Append and V4x have anything decent about them and the 4Vx range offers the least amount of options of all. So both Kagamines are stuck with the hard luck award and the worst of CFM's Vocaloids overall. So of the two of the Len, Len has always been the worst for his lack of realism being a male voiced by a female and often reported much harder to use. In terms of the grand scheme of things, his Act1 and English are very much guilty of not sounding masculine at all at times, therefore even if this wasn't an issue, the voicebanks …

I saw a tweet from Haneokka, (I think I spelled her name right), in which she spoke against UTAUs drawn in the style of iXima, and like, 10 minutes later, I see a tweet from MystSapph in which she spoke against it as well, and when I opened the tweet to see the comments, several people were in agreement with her, with one person referencing the "balding Miku" thing, and another making a comment about the "neutral" facial expressions characters illustrated by iXima receive.
I fail to see what the problem with iXima's art style is. In my honest opinion, I think people are just sour over the fact that it's not the cartoony anime style they're all used to and got their panties in a twist over someone bringing something new to the table, in this…Read more >

Hey there. I joined about five months ago, but I'm actually starting to do things here. Not much, though. I'd like to start making a Utau but I'm not enitrely sure how. Should I introduce myself? Okay, well, I like to draw, I guess. GHOST & Hachi are two of my favorite Utau/Vocaloid song producers. I might do a lot of Utau covers of their songs. I probably won't use anyone's Utau or Vocaloid besides mine (if I figure out how to make one). Anyway, seey'all.Read more >
I would like to apologize for my inactivity lately.

I have had to go home from work early and/ or just call out alltogether because it has been getting so bad. I can't help but wonder if I'm even going to be able to keep my job or worse.

I am serious when I say I am tired of all the cartoon box art we have for VOCALOID voice banks, regardless of how the product sounds. Ever since the release of Hatsune Miku, I believe (not sure, since there's not lots of evidence) that there has been an increase in cartoon style avatars for boxes. This especially became common in V3 and V4.
Also, when the V5 standard vocals were released, there were a bunch of people who were upset because their designs looked like something from The Sims 2. The issue is that their vocals were high quality, yet some people only seemed to care about what the "character looked like." They're allowed to say that, but when I see dozens of comments saying the same thing, I'm reminded that VOCALOID has sometimes …Read more >
Hey! The name is Makaia, though most people nowadays call me by a name I made up for the main character of my orginal story, Mac Skyrunner. I am an aspiring VOCALOID artist, primarily using Hatsune Miku, and then comes the rest of Crypton Future Media's crew, and Megpoid GUMI. I plan on being a vocalist in most of the songs too. I am currently saving up for Miku's voicebank, which well be my first besides the free Utaloids, and FL Studio (I'll move onto Logic Pro eventually).
I have finished writing the lyrics for many of my original songs, and have the background music ready in my head, so I am just waiting on the money for the software. Song titles for my finished songs are "Living Young," "Orb of Music," "Joyful Synthesizer" (this one is…Read more >

So I found this cool drawing of Luka on Google images, then it dawned on me that that's probably the artwork of Luka used for the New Luka demo video that featured a silhouetted version of Luka.

Do you think that's probably the design of Luka V3?Read more >

Its no secret the Vocaloid craze is over and that we're seeing a decline since 2014 in growth. But what remains is strong right? Well... Yes and No.
As I've pointed out for the last couple of months, V5 has presented itself with a number of problems going forward and some producers have slowly been jumping to CeVIO while others watch Synth V. For us Vocaloid fans, the joy ride is over and it remains to be seen if Vocaloid will see a increase of sales this year like every year since 2007. I haven't seen any sales reports, here is praying.
I think this reflects, however, in the most recent Vocaloid Mirai Komachi and Haruno Sora. These two girls have been popular, sure, but at the same time neglected. ITs not just them but V4s era in gene…Read more >
Okay so when your a Vocaloid fan, you get this impression at first you have to love Miku. Everyone who thinks you a Vocaloid fan that isn't thinks that you do. When you defend Miku people think your doing it because you love her.
But I don't love Miku and the 8 years in the fandom I've spent saying I don't, its true though.
Basically the issue is Miku is at her core something I'd have loved in 2000-3 when I was just getting into Anime via the internet. I saw anime in the 90s creep in more and more and there was a huge buzz in the early 2000s over it on the internet especially when combined with the amount of shows on TV. To the point wherein by 2006, I was sick of anime. Well, not anime itself, but of the fans and the attitude towards a…Read more >

It’s release announcement time again! We’ve been spoiling some hints online the past few months, but it’s finally here: TeamLayetri’s new album “Lone Wolf” will be released on December 16, 2018! And man, we’ve done a lot to make this album happen…
Let’s start with the good stuff: songs. There are a lot of those on this album, 11 to be precise. From reworked older songs to metal, we’ve put together a truly diverse compilation of our musical possibilities. Here’s all the songs on the album:
- Alone LayetriP, Takahiro178, Hatsune Miku
- Under the Cherry Trees LayetriP, Takahiro178, Hatsune Miku, danielvw
- Lone Wolf LayetriP, Takahiro178, Xin Hua

Yes, there's a lot of MASA on here. I've been listening to a lot of MASA songs lately and I'm honestly suprised by how much I like it.
This is entirely my opinion, please do not be offended.
8. エルゴノミックヒーロー (Ergonomic Hero)
My first ever MASA song was The Fox's Wedding. My second was Ergonomic Hero, and I was pretty surprised. Normally it wouldn't be something I listened to, but like a lot of MASA songs it's so freaking catchy. Not like "Oh my gGakupo this is all I can think about" catchy, but like "Wait, when did I start humming this?" catchy.
7. マトリョシカ (Matryoshka)
So, I didn't listen to Matryoshka until literally yesterday. And hey, it's pretty good. Not my favorite song in the world but it's pretty good. I personally prefer IA and Lily's cov…Read more >
Thought I'd do this for fun, but these are my predictions going forward, I want to see what comes true.
Okay here there are;
- 1 or 2 new Korean Vocaloids
- 2 to 4 Chinese
- 2 or 3 new English, since we've only got Zero-G going forward
- 8-12 new Vocaloids for Japanese
One of the biggest issue is this is likely going to be a expectation going forward in Vocaloid in general from now on. Vocaloid is slowly trailing off back to the days when Vocaloid was expecting to produce far less overall stuff in my opinion. We'll not see it fade away entirely and it likely due to its loyal Japanese fandom be around for another 2 engine versions at least.
- About 4 a year on average
- I don't think there is too much concern unless we near the 2 year period ending, …
- kicks in door* HELLO! It's me, that one person.
After, I kid you not, MONTHS of working on it and being afraid to post it, I finished a freakin' song.
Since I can't make the page myself (potential bias and whatnot), I would really, really appreciate it if someone could make a page for it. Please.
If I'm not allowed to do this then tell me I'm sorry feel free to delete this I'm so freaking hfdjks stupid but I'd really appreciate it if it were possible okay tHANKS BYERead more >
I don't doubt that there might be users that suspected this or outright know what i'm about to say and i'm sorry if i'm making it sound dramatic but it is imporatant to me okay! It's already cold and my anxiety is only maikng me tremble more.

Speedyblue brought up the suggestion that Vocaloid Wikia should have a Discord server. She's brought up that plenty of other wikias do it, so why not this one?
And why not?
Good question. Good suggestion. Anyways, here's Vocaloid Wikia's Discord server.
Channels should be straightforward. You've got a place for general chatting, a place to reach admins, help section, page requests, and channel suggestions. Trying to avoid voice channels if we can help it folks! Also, please set your nicknames on the server to your Vocaloid Wikia username if possible or at least a shorten version of it so we know how to reach you over here if needed!Read more >
