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
Kiss me right here and now
Before you become bound to her
But I can’t bring myself to say these wor…

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 email@example.com
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 usually don't like to talk about my personal life on the internet but it's been getting out of hand and I feel like I owe everyone an explanation.

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. And if I do get fired I am absolutely certain that because of my visible disabilities, tourettes tic, and inability to get a further education I can't help but fear that I may never be able to get another job again.

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
- Warm My Heart LayetriP, Takahiro178, Hats…

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.
(I'll be talking on third person for a while so i apologise if the whole thing sounds cringy or something along the line)
So i've been here for a while and i guess i hid something that's sort of important but not really. The thing is i'm worried it might be breaking the wiki's rules tho i've never read them to know....(yeah sorry about that, haha... it's really only because i didn't see a link to them anywhere)

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 >

Hi all. I’ve made an embarrassing mistake...so, I was adding subtitles for the Japanese lyrics of Let's Be Honest, and when I clicked the add translation button for Japanese, I accidentally published a Google Translated version of the English lyrics...I have since cleaned up my mess (the revised subtitles are still being reviewed), but if anyone knows how to prevent this from happening in the future, please tell me, and I’ll take your advice. Thank you.Read more >
Hello everyone, I would like to question with you the best "second name" for Leon and Lola. I think the best second name would be Saisho, because saisho means first, and they were the first vocaloids. What do you think?Read more >

The situation has been resolved, I'm unblocked from the wiki
It turns out the reason I was blocked is because I was one of the many innocent IPs who were unintentionally blocked because VOCALOID Wiki had this troll going around doing things they're not supposed to here, and they won't stop doing that, so they had to do one of those range blocks or global bans to drive them out. Unfortunately innocent IPs(me included) got caught up in it because of the troll's country or something like that.
And I understand if you're not fond of this Damesukekun person but it wasn't their intent so don't be picking on them, it's not worth starting an internet war.Read more >
Hello, everyone. I didn't know how to contact the admins so I'm writing this. I really hope you admins read this. I've got a friend who has been blocked in this wikia. She wrote a post about that, saying that she hadn't been in this wikia for a long time and she didn't understand how did that happen. Here you have her post about this: https://www.deviantart.com/tomboyjessie13/journal/Blocked-on-Vocaloid-Wiki-for-abuse-763494754
Damesukekun blocked her. I've heard this is something that happened sometimes, but I really hope someone changes this. Please stop blocking people randomly. The motive written was: abusive multiple accounts but in fact she only has one account, and she rarely uses it.

Hi all. I’d like to announce that HatsuneMikuIsAwesome is actually a fake account I created to see how fast I could get banned from FANDOM for being a hardcore troll. I’m extremely sorry for doing this, and I know it was a stupid thing to do. If you decide to block me, that’s okay; I’ll deal with the block. If you don’t, I promise to be good, and I will never (intentionally) break any more rules.
Thanks for reading, and hopefully understanding.Read more >
I know this is a stupid question, but I’m just curious. Personally, I would really like to have French and Italian Vocaloids, but having Cantonese Vocaloids would be nice too.Read more >
Hi all... I really want to keep sensitive topics of the wiki...but I just want to share something...
If you’ve read my userpage (which I doubt), you may have noticed that I said I have depression...well...in the past few weeks, I wanted to kill myself...
If you are wondering why I want to kill myself...it’s mainly because of extremely low self confidence and bullying...I usually tell myself “You are a worthless piece of dog shit, who has no purpose in this world other than to be made fun of and ridiculed.” I’ve also been frequently bullied for being partially blind...
I’m absolutely sorry for wasting your time by having you read this...please yell at me and tell me I’m worthless in the comments...I’ll just...hide in a corner...Read more >

I won't really be active this weekend. I've brought my cruddy slow laptop with me and it generally hates my browsers, so I won't work on anything this weekend for the most part. If there's anything of urgency, please ask the other admins first unless it's something only I can answer (and there really shouldn't be? lol).
Also may lessen my activity due to a new semester at school.Read more >
The channel MurasagiYT has been taken down for some reason or another, so the associated derivatives on the Nanatsu no Tsumi to Batsu and Shukufuku no Messiah to Ai no Tou pages were removed accordingly. I'm not sure why they would take down the channel.
Apparently, according to their Twitter Page, it seems that ONLY their YouTube Channel got wrongly terminated for spamming and deceptive advertisement. Must've been a mistake. On the other hand, their NicoNico account is still active, so the appropriate links are brought back.Read more >
This is going to sound rather stupid, but I don't know what my first vocaloid song was and I'm trying to figure it out. There are 3 potential songs and I'm not sure which one qualifies as my first song.
Senbonzakura- The first time I listened to it was the music box version without any vocals, so I'm not sure whether or not this would count. This was before I knew about vocaloid.
Echo- I heard the song through the Undertale animation (because I'm a WEEB) so it wasn't the actual version of the song. I'm not sure if that would count or not, because I still didn't know what vocaloid was then.
Outer Science- I listened to this song right as I learned about vocaloid (so like last November) but instead of the original version it was the Shirou Nova…Read more >
I hate being negative, but I have a question to ask, just because I’m curious. Actually, you can just read the title. Maybe you don’t like the tuning, or the lyrics, or something else about it just BUGS you. My personal least favorite is Pane Dhiria, as I find Kaito’s tuning to be awful in that song. Other songs that I don’t like are This is the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee, Maigo Life, and Starduster (“Ai O” is said too many times.) An honorable mention would be Gay Sex for just being so damn creepy.Read more >
All of these have been taken from things people have said or done to me. The first half is things people have said and the second half is things people have done. A lot of these things are just stupid...
Please don't take this seriously, it's just a list of how people have triggered me by being idiots and saying weird stuff about vocaloid.
- "Sorry, I don't watch vocaloid..."
- "Oh my gosh Gumi stole Echo from Undertale!!!"
- "Hey, wasn't Hatsune Miku the first vocaloid?"
- "Yanhe's a boy!"
- "Piko's a girl!"
- "Flower's a boy!"
- "Gakupo's a girl!"
- "Fukase? I never knew they made a vocaloid based off of Ronald McDonald..."
- "Wait, you like Cantarella?! Oh my god that's way too mainstream!!! You really need to listen to more different vocaloid songs!!!" (I had the…
I don't think I'm the first person to discover this, but it seems like in all the songs I listen to there is some sort of pattern depending on the vocaloid who sings it:
Hatsune Miku: Jealous evil person who kills to get her way (Scissorloid, Rotten Girl Grotesque Romance, Gift From the Princess who Brought Sleep)
Kagamine Rin: The reason Len is always dying (Fear Garden, Servant of Evil)
Kagamine Len: Always dying (Prisoner, Fear Garden, Servant of Evil, Cantarella, Evil Food Eater Conchita...)
Megurine Luka: Either kills Miku or is in love with her (Scissorloid, The Tailor Shop on Enbizaka, magnet, Deja Vu)
KAITO: Miku does something yandere to him or vice versa and they end up together (Cendrillon, Cantarella)
MEIKO: Is always killing people …Read more >
I'll admit, sometimes the vocaloid community really annoys me. I don't think I'm alone in saying that. So here are some of my pet peeves about vocaloid and the vocaloid community. This is going to be a longer post than what I usually do, so just be prepared.
Please don't be insulted by anything on this list, it is just my opinion and I don't mean to offend anyone.
Kagamine Rin & Len
I am quite a fan of the Kagamines, but it annoys me when people call Rin and Len "twins". I know amateur fans call them twins (I used to but only while I was still getting into vocaloid) and I can understand why. Same surname, same age, same color scheme, it would make sense. However, it's never been confirmed by Crypton Future Media that they are actually twin…Read more >
I'm desperate. I'm having trouble making a VocaVerse account, so I have to resort to here (first blog post, hope I'm doing everything right).
Basically, back in the days of Vocaloid Otaku, there was an EngToJap plugin that automatically rearranged Japanese phonetics to fit english words, meaning you could automatically turn a section into Engrish. I had this plugin, but then my computer had an accident and I basically had to restore everything. I didn't realize that this had caused me to lose the plugin, and now Vocaloid Otaku is gone and I don't know where to find it again.
Were any Vocaloid Otaku users able to save the plugin or at least back-up the site so I can find it again? That plugin was my best friend when making Engrish covers. If …Read more >
