A Company refers those heavily affiliated with the development and promotion of a VOCALOID™-powered voicebank or character. While most companies that take on the task of developing a VOCALOID are audio based; it has become common for record companies and related subsidiaries to collaborate with a primary company to develop their own voicebank.

The marketing of a VOCALOID varies by company and some companies may provide their vocalist with a basic profile, backstory, or personality that the consumer can work with. The illustration of a vocalist has no effect on the software and is done purely for decorative purposes.

In order for a product to be classified as a "Company" on the wiki, there should be acknowledgment by the YAMAHA Corporation under their licensing terms and there is a VOCALOID™-powered vocal in development or fully released. This includes characters from games with vocals powered by the VOCALOID™ software, as well as privatized vocals.


It can be noted that fanmade Derivatives and other synthesizer characters such as UTAU are not classified as "VOCALOIDs" their presence is hosted on the wiki due to official acknowledgement by a company.
