Current DevelopmentsEdit

Engine AimsEdit

Currently, a few things have been announced for the future of Vocaloid itself;[1]

  • More languages are in planning, currently French, Portuguese, and Italian are considered.
  • More human-like, "ultimately toward AI". See VOCALOID:AI.
  • Better note inputs, to make ways of using the editor more fun.
  • Better suitable for more genres of music.
  • More innovative than the V4 engine

Announced VocalsEdit

These are VOCALOID voicebanks known to be in production. Their status and licensing are unknown, but most are presumed to have commercial licenses.

It takes approximately 4 hours in total for a Japanese VOCALOID to be recorded. An English VOCALOID can take from a week to over a month to record all its samples. Pieced together during more than 4 months of tuning and assembling the software together, in addition to the possibility of a second set of recordings being made for better sample selection, a VOCALOID may take anywhere from 6 months to over 2 years to complete.

Furthermore, until consent is given, VOCALOIDs cannot be talked about by staff or their vocal providers.[2] This is due to legal grounds and therefore, fans must aware of this and respect the process involved in making just one of any of the VOCALOIDs.

YAMAHA will also not acknowledge any VOCALOID that has yet to be licensed. Therefore, a vocal may have been made in VOCALOID itself, but has yet to be licensed. Bare this in mind on all unreleased and upcoming projects.

Announced Ceased DevelopementEdit

The following are confirmed companies or developers who have left VOCALOID;

Company Details
Voctro Labs, S.L. Left VOCALOID to develop their own vocal synthesizing technology. They never really had much success within VOCALOID. Although MAIKA received satisfactory levels of success, Bruno and Clara were among the least successful VOCALOID voicebanks ever produced.
PowerFX Systems AB. Left VOCALOID for unknown reasons. Since 2013, they had been focusing on their own product, Soundation, in conjunction with the release of YOHIOloid, who fared not much better than the majority of their previous successes. PowerFX reported struggles to profit from VOCALOID despite the success of OLIVER.
Crypton Future Media, Inc. Left VOCALOID to develop their own synthesizing software: Piapro Studio. They are currently in partnership with YAMAHA despite leaving VOCALOID. Though the switch occurred, their characters would not change who they are.
Beijing Photek S&T Development Co., Ltd. Moved to Synthesizer V. The reasons were cited as due to licensing costs, development limitations (caused by VOCALOID's regular engine updates) and other general restrictions.
Vocaloid Next Departed from VOCALOID before releasing their first VOCALOID Ring Suzune. Reasons were related to money.
NetEase NetEase's gaming branch was initially collaborating with Shanghai HENIAN Information Technology Co. Ltd. before departing from VOCALOID before releasing their first VOCALOID Zhanyin Lorra.
1st PLACE Co., Ltd. Currently developing for CeVIO Creative Studio. IA Japanese remains on VOCALOID but it is unknown if any future developments will occur.

Restricted accessEdit

These are vocals that producers have, or currently have limited access to.

Trial versionsEdit

Trial versions of voicebanks are often released to act as a method of users testing to see if they like the vocal. Trial versions tend to have restrictions such as limited day usage or limited functions. Often they have other issues with them, such as they are made from beta versions of the software. Producers making demos might also be issued Beta versions of pre-released VOCALOIDs or even the full version of the software.

This section contains those that were made able to be accessed by the general public, in many cases, the demo is only given out for a limited amount of time or issued on a limited number with a magazine or other means. All other pre-released versions or unreleased versions are listed elsewhere in the "Restricted Access" section. On occasion, a VOCALOID may also come with demo versions of other VOCALOIDs made by the same studio which may or may not be declared prior to purchase, in this case they may be absent from this page because of the difficulty in confirming them.

Retired voicebanksEdit

There are some VOCALOID voicebanks that were available commercially that have now been removed from sale or will be removed from sale in the near future. Vocals that have seen retirement may continue to be sold for some time after their initial retirement; however, they are on limited supply and will sell only while the stock lasts. Their usage is limited to those who are able to access these vocals before or since their retirement, as no new stock has been released containing their vocals.

Please note that when a new verssion of the engine is released, there is a risk of support for older versions being removed. They may or may not be removed from sale. Currently all VOCALOID and VOCALOID2 vocals are considered "retired" completely, even if they are still able to be purchased and a lack of support may be seen for their vocals.

Aside from this, there were no additional differences between the products and users with the older versions did not need to purchase the new "SE" products.[24]

Private licensesEdit

Private voicebanks are created under license for non-commercial use. Private vocals are much harder to confirm than commercially released vocals and their progress is impossible to determine; however, they are becoming more and more common. The voicebanks in the section are listed by VOCALOID engine era. Unlike commercially released vocals, private vocals are only allowed to be used by producers who have been given permission and are hired to create songs for use by the license holders.

There were no known private licenses released during the VOCALOID era. However, the original intention of the engine was to be released only as a privately licensed product; this did not happen because Crypton Future Media was able to convince YAMAHA it was more beneficial to release VOCALOID as a commercial product. Therefore, it is known that this kind of licensing was considered for the software from the start and would have been Vocaloids original intention.

During the VOCALOID2 era of development, YAMAHA began to test the waters to see if it was profitable to create VOCALOIDs for private use and began to develop VOCALOID-flex as a means to allow VOCALOID to extend its capabilities beyond just singing. A number of vocals were created in the VOCALOID2 era; take note this does not mean they were using the VOCALOID2 software. After VOCALOID3 was released, YAMAHA sought to make the licensing of such vocals more common. A number of vocals were created in the VOCALOID3 era; take note this does not mean they were using the VOCALOID3 software.

Project Details
N/A A VOCALOID-flex voicebank was used in the game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.[25][26] This was the first private license of VOCALOID known to have been announced commercially. Due to popular misconceptions, its name was believed to be "ZEKE" after the "Gear" (the games name for its Mecha) "ZEKE" as it is the most frequent Gear the player will know within the game. However, it actually remains nameless and despite its association with ZEKE, VOCALOID-flex was used for several "Gears" within the game.
Akikoloid-chan LAWSON convenience store chain's mascot, "Akiko-chan" received a makeover and synthesized voice on the VOCALOID3 engine to become "Akikoloid-chan," who acts a navigator for LAWSON's Niconico channel. Commissioned albums using her voice have been granted. On July 23, 2014, it was revealed that her usage in music had been discontinued. Despite this, she will remain as a public character representing LAWSON.
Ueki-loid Older Male VOCALOID, Ueki-Loid is the first attempt to resurrect a dead singer and has the voice of the late singer Hitoshi Ueki. It has been stated that this vocal will never be released commercially. Ueki-loid was made to demonstrate the capabilities of the VOCALOID software. He is now VOCALOID3. Also, his creation marks the start of a new series of Vocals called "Legend of VOCALOID".
hide "hide" is also having a vocal revival similar to Ueki-loid. hide died in 1998, and was the guitarist of group "X-Japan".[27]
Project 575 Kobayashi Matcha and Masaoka Azuki, characters in the Project 575 series made by SEGA, are confirmed to have voices using the VOCALOID2 software.[28]
ONA ONA was revealed to be an alternate mascot using VOCALOID MAIKA's voicebank,[29] marketing more heavily on the Catalan capabilities of the software. She was later confirmed to be used for concert purposes only.[30] Before Voctro Labs confirmed that ONA used MAIKA's software, it was originally stated that she was a Catalan Vocaloid; but this has since been debunked.
Anri Rune Anri Rune originally started as a virtual announcer for Fuji Television. In 2013, she received a VOCALOID voicebank and debuted with her demo song "Hallelujah Super Idol". Afterwards, she slipped into limbo for a long period of time. She was eventually confirmed to be a private vocal and would never sell.
Kojiloid Kojiloid (コジロイド) is a private English VOCALOID vocal produced as a guide by Crypton Future Media. The voice provider is known by the surname of "Kojima" (コジマ), Kojima was a English teacher who was brought on for the Miku English project team. It was part of a resource pack made in the development of Hatsune Miku English and was created as a guide on how to pronounce words and mimics the way Kojima speaks.[31]
Zhang Chuchu Since September 2016, Shanghai Wangcheng claimed that they were making a VOCALOID voicebank for the main character of the manhua "Chǔchǔ Dòng Rén" ("楚楚动仁") branded by Migu Comics: Zhang Chuchu.[32] A female voice provider audition was launched and Wan Su was confirmed to be the winning participant.[33] Chuchu was later confirmed to be a private vocal on April 30, 2018. Users who would like to use her in exchange for their music production may apply to get her.[34]
Yuecheng (King) A second VOCALOID from Shanghai Wangcheng was made known in March 2017. This time, the VOCALOID voicebank was for Yuecheng, the twin brother character from the manhua "Mànhuà Jiā yǔ Dà Míngxīng: Yuèróng yǔ Yuèchéng" ("漫画家与大明星:悦蓉与悦成" / "The Manhua Arist and The Idol: Yuerong and Yuecheng") published by NetEase Comics and would be made in collaboration with Chengdu Yuefang Cultural Broadcast Co.[35] Like Zhang Chuchu before him, a male voice provider audition was launched and Nuochen was confirmed to be the winning participant.[36] Like Zhang Chuchu, Yuecheng was later confirmed to be a private vocal on April 30, 2018. Users who would like to use him in exchange for their music production may apply to get him.

Exclusives/LimitedEdit

Since the start of the VOCALOID3 era, a new type of release appeared; exclusive/limited vocals. These are given out in limited numbers or in exclusive events as prizes; they are not for sale. Thus, there are a limited number of ways to obtain them.

VOCALOID Details
galaco 2012 This former voicebank was offered as a prize in the VOCALOID music contest held by the VOCALOID shop. Anyone who achieved 1,000+ views on Niconico with an entry in the contest would be able to get this VOCALOID for free.[37][38][39] However, usage of galaco was not intended to be permanent and users that wanted to continuing using her had to constantly extend her expiration date. Users were unable to obtain her voicebank after December 31, 2012. Her code officially expired on January 31, 2013. Any codes that were given extensions expired on April 31, 2013. She was bound to the account of each individual and therefore re-sale was not possible. An updated version of her voicebank was released in August, 2014.

Misc. unreleased/cancelled voicebanksEdit

The following is a list of known but unreleased VOCALOID voicebanks intended for commercial release. These vocals managed to reach a status where they could be released commercially; however, for one reason or another were never released. Some producers may have access to these vocals, as they were given the voicebanks by VOCALOID studios to use with permission. This list does not include beta stage voicebanks (such as CV-4Cβ) or unnamed known delayed projects (such as Project If...).

Unless there is a license linked to the vocal, YAMAHA will not acknowledge these voicebanks. YAMAHA only acknowledges licensed vocals.

  • BIG AL - There exists two vocals for BIG AL that are unreleased;
    • "Ronnie" was a VOCALOID voice bank and was confirmed to be Big Al's original vocal with a different vocalist. When quality issues occurred, the voice was dropped.
    • BIG AL's second voicebank with Michael King was not released and was replaced. The voicebank had a quality related issue, but the provider was unable to complete a recording session to improve results, and therefore a new provider was found.
  • Sweet ANN - during VOCALOID, a prototype vocal for her called "JODIE" was created, but never released. Reasons for a lack of release are unknown.
  • RUBY - a Japanese vocal was made for her but due to the workload and licensing fees, it could not be released.[40] Success of her English vocal may lead to other vocals being considered for her.[41]
    • In addition, RUBY was originally developed for VOCALOID3 and was redone for VOCALOID4. Voicebanks were produced for the VOCALOID3 version, but never released.
Crypton Future Media VOCALOID2
  • MEIKO Append VOCALOID2 - Featured in the Project mirai games, but did not meet the VOCALOID2 era deadline. It was released for VOCALOID3 as MEIKO V3.
  • KAITO Append VOCALOID2 - Also featured in the same games, like MEIKO's VOCALOID2, it failed to meet the deadline for the VOCALOID2 retirement. It was released for VOCALOID3 as KAITO V3.
    • Also, it was reported that voicebanks "Mellow", "Serious", "Solid" and "Sweet" were recorded, as well as a couple of others that brought the total of voicebanks for KAITO up to 6. Two of the vocals were dropped from the package altogether. "Vivid" and "Power" are also named as other recorded vocals done with a new digital mic; nothing else has been said on these vocals, however. Much has changed in the production process in regards to KAITO's product and Crypton did not mention everything in regards to this issue.
  • Megurine Luka Append VOCALOID2 - Generally believed this was delayed because of VOCALOID2's retirement from sale. A few witnesses to a VOCALOID2 version of the package in commercial use have been noted. It was released for VOCALOID4 as Megurine Luka V4X.
  • Male vocal - Originally known as CV04, this VOCALOID was originally destined for VOCALOID2, but after Crypton Future Media got caught up in Hatsune Miku's plans, they ended up delaying the release of new vocals. There is little known about the status of the VOCALOID2 vocal and how far it was in production. Whether or not he will be released in the future is unknown.
  • Hatsune Miku (English) VOCALOID2 - Miku's English voicebank had not yet begun production. Upon the VOCALOID3 release, Wat mentioned that a VOCALOID2 version was developed. This vocal was never released as it did not produce satisfactory results. It was eventually released as "Hatsune Miku V3 English".

In February 2014, Wat mentioned that he was playing with the wavelengths of experimental vocals he hoped to one day release. The 3 vocals mentioned were KAITO "Light", Miku Falsetto and MEIKO "Hard".[42]

  • Miku "Falsetto" is a vocal which has never been released (engine unknown). It was recorded as a sort of 7th Append, and its existence was made known in December 2010. The reason for its lack of release was that they felt releasing it as an independent vocal would be useless.
Internet Co., Ltd. VOCALOID2
  • Megpoid Extend VOCALOID2: Never made the VOCALOID2 deadline, but was released as the V3 Megpoid product instead. It is generally unknown how far into the project INTERNET Co., Ltd got before the transfer from V2 to V3 began or if the VOCALOID2 voicebank was ever completed.
  • Megpoid - Falsetto: Was cancelled when VOCALOID entered the VOCALOID3 engine due to the difficulty matching all 50 sounds in the falsetto voicebank to the normal Megpoid vocal. The idea for this vocal was eventually reworked into kokone.[43]
  • Megpoid English update: When asked about possible updates for Megpoid English, Noboru responded that the English bank for GUMI would be updated at a later time but there is currently no schedule.[44] When asked about what this meant, Noboru replied "this year or next" (2016/2017). In regards to making more than 1 vocal, he noted this may be too difficult.[45] However, in 2019, when asked if there would be any voicebanks for VOCALOID5, Noboru stated that there are currently no plans, which may likely mean that GUMI's English update is currently not in production.
YAMAHA (Bplats, Inc.)
  • ZOLA PROJECT: A number of temporary vocals had been recorded to find the 3 most suitable candidates for ZOLA out of 40 singers in their teen-twenties years.[46]

On May 18, 2015, Gui Xian Ren confirmed that Lorra's voicebank was completed.[50] However, in February 2016, it was confirmed that NetEase abandoned her project and she entered long-term suspension. She could only be renewed if another Chinese company is interested in her.[51] In 2017, Joyme Network was confirmed to be the new owner of Lorra and intended to use her as a video game character. It is currently unknown if a VOCALOID voicebank will be produced for her.[52]

Giuseppe

  • Lucía: On March 18, 2016, VocaloidMaster Giuseppe posted on Facebook that he was developing a potential female Spanish VOCALOID4 named Lucía. She made her debut with two conceptual designs by artists AkiGlancy and Riisago. Giuseppe attempted to contact different companies with previous VOCALOID experience (such as PowerFX, Zero-G, and VoctroLabs), however, they were not interested due to the costs of obtaining a VOCALOID license. Demonstrations of her voicebank were uploaded on Giuseppe's SoundCloud account.[55] Her voice provider was confirmed to be the daughter of one of Giuseppe's friends. Lucía was named after the voice provider.[56]
  • LUAN: On July 17, 2016, a demo of a potential new Spanish VOCALOID, LUAN was released. His voice was allegedly programmed by Guiseppe, and set for release by an unknown, independent company.

He was conceptualized as a male seahorse civil officer who served Otohime, but had no official design. This information was revealed as Kaoru Yoshizawa's final contributions to the VOCALOID fandom.[60] It should be noted that it was not explicitly stated if ViNO was meant to only be a character from LUMi's world or if he was meant to be a VOCALOID product.
Yuzuki Yukari - Unity with VOCALOID version.

The Unity with Vocaloid project has presumed to have ended due to the retirement of both the download to the SDK download and the removal of the website.[61]

Beta/Prototype voicebanksEdit

These vocals exist but are only prototypes and usually, but not always, listed with a "β" ("beta") on their name. There is no indication they were ever meant to be commercial products.

As beta versions, these vocals may not be acknowledged by YAMAHA due to a lack of a Vocaloid license related to them.

VOCALOID Details
CV-4Cβ was a voicebank from Crypton Future Media that used VOCALOID-flex. CV-4Cβis a prototype Vocaloid produced by Crypton for robot model HRP-4C performed at CEATEC JAPAN 2009 and it was created by sampling a Japanese seiyuu, Eriko Nakamura.[62] It has a new Vocaloid engine which is called Vocaloid-flex.[63] Hatsune Miku and GUMI were also used as voicebanks for HRP-4C. It is not confirmed to be a commercial product.[64][65]
???? A prototype male Catalan voicebank done by the MTG was featured in a technology demonstration. Jordi Bonada, Voctro cofounder, was the provider.
Project if... was an experimental voicebank project by Crypton Future Media with several voicebanks known and was a experimental project aimed at a elementary school setting. The series mostly comprised of child vocals but at least 1 adult was known. This project was to follow the Character Vocal series but has not been mentioned since late 2010. Only prototype vocals have been seen so far. At NYCCon 2012, it was confirmed the focus is updating and creating English versions of current Vocals leaving this project with no further news. Junger März PROTOTYPE β, a child vocal is the most notable of these voicebanks.
???? In 2015, a song made using the prototype VOCALOID2 engine was shared. The vocal used for the test was a male vocal, its voice was rough and lacked clarity. It was built for Japanese and what little is known about it as it was never commercially released.[66]
Ausgris A sample of a male vocalist developed by VocaTone was showcased early 2016. It was later explained that "Ausgris" is a working title.[67] On Vocatone's Tumblr they replied that it's unlikely they will keep the name.[68]

A preview of the finished design was revealed on VocaTone's social media.[69] A few details about the product were revealed on Tumblr: the vocalist is described as having a quirky and upbeat voice, able to sing and speak at a low pitch. The vocalist was not a singer and sung-spoke the lyrics. The voice is described as "fun to use".[70]

It should be noted that the demo was of a single pitch, more would likely be added if the project continued. VocaTone also had a few ideas on names that would suit them better then "Ausgris".[71] One thing holding back the product was the recent number of young masculine vocals that were being produced at the time of demonstration. VocaTone stated Ausgris would be released if there was interest, but would remain untouched for the moment.[72]

A full image of Ausgris was revealed on OLIVER's official twitter account on September 16, 2016.[73] Their release remains uncertain.[74] Altough originally introduced as a 'young male vocal', Ausgris was later confirmed to be agender.[75]

On December 11, Vocatone stated on tumblr that Ausgris is still "chugging along!"[76]

In July 2017, Vocatone stated that they were making steady progress with 3 potential English vocals; one of which being Ausgris.[77]

???? On December 10, 2016 VocaTone announced that they were working on a new vocal.[78] When asked about it, they confirmed that it was a separate vocal from Ausgris.[79]
VIVI On January 27, 2018, a character named VIVI was introduced.[80] She was confirmed to be a vocal made with the VOCALOID engine. However, she is currently not licensed by YAMAHA. VIVI is planned to be a trillingual, with English as her main voicebank and her two other voicebanks in Chinese and Japanese, which are stated to be currently in development. As of now, two English demos and a silhouette have been released.[81][82] VIVI was revealed to be female.[83] On January 30, VIVI was confirmed to be cancelled/on hiatus. It was explained that due to the lack of permission from a licensed company, VIVI's voicebank cannot be developed further nor released.[84]

Rumour millEdit

These vocals are rumoured or hinted to be released but their status has not been made official.

Possible future voicebanksEdit

This section contains hints, confirmations and suggestions put out by VOCALOID studios.

Company Details
Zero-G Anders confirmed that if English VOCALOIDs become more popular, Zero-G will consider making Appends/Updates for their VOCALOIDs. Also, Anders confirmed if there is demand updates for all past Zero-G VOCALOIDs to newer engines, it is a possibility. The major factor in this though is the workload needed and involvement in the process against the demand.

Later they confirmed they will likely never update any of their VOCALOID range vocals.

In February 2015, in response to a fan's email, Zero-G expressed a desire to update AVANNA to VOCALOID4. However, their current main focus is to produce new vocals for the engine.

Celtic male; In the pre-release promotions for VOCALOID3, a male and female pair of vocals were announced for the VOCALOID3 engine. While AVANNA, the female, was released, the male did not. In March 2015 in response to a fan's e-mail, Zero-G responded they have yet to find the right voice for the role.[85]

They would consider XSY compatible vocals for DEX and DAINA if they sell well.

Zero-G have confirmed they currently are not interested in making voicebanks for any other language besides English and only want to focus on English.

In August 2017, an admin of Zero-G's Facebook page asked what type of library their followers would like to see next and their suggestions may be considered. Requests for a VOCALOID4 update for MIRIAM was especially noted to be in high demand and may be considered depending on the producers' reply.[86] Later on twitter, Miriam Stockley acknowledged the support.[87]

VocaTone When asked about an update for OLIVER, VocaTone responded there would be issues with trying to give him one, including but not limited to: finding another voice source and a high demand for an update. However, it would be a consideration.[88] PowerFX, who distributed the voice of Oliver are now only focusing on Soundation and Vocaloid has been dropped. Oliver is unlikely to receive an update.

VocaTone responded to a comment about doing an Irish or Northern Irish accent and agreed with the comment this would be "pretty hot". However, they are focusing on the American accent more before they venture into other accents and languages.[89]

In regards to a bilingual English and Spanish vocal, VocaTone commented that they would love to "give it a whirl".[90]

Internet Co., Ltd. During 2012, a fan asked about other English vocals while Megpoid English was in production.[91] Lily and Gackpoid were brought up in a tweet during the Megpoid English development..[92] But English vocals could only occur if they were profitable.[93] Noboru had expressed hope to one day make a Gackpoid English.[94]

It was later mentioned that there are currently no plans to make any new English voicebanks.[95]

In October 2014:[96]

  • it was mentioned again there are no plans for Gackpoid English.
  • They also have no plans to do any Megpoid English Extends like vocals such as "Power" and "Adult".
  • Lily English also was confirmed as having no plans. It was explained the reason there are currently no further plans for English vocals at this moment is due to the time (recording, developing and the time of all individuals involved) and money involved.
  • They also have no male vocals planned currently, but it was expressed Noboru wishes to do one in the future.
  • Noboru mentioned that there is a lack of vocals for English (and other languages). This is an issue that is trying to be resolved ~~(by those working with VOCALOID), though they (INTERNET co.) do not have the solution yet.

Noboru confirmed that they wish to update all VOCALOID3s to the VOCALOID4 engine, but there is no specific schedule.[97][98] As of October 2015, only Gackpo and GUMI received VOCALOID4 updates. As for new voices, Noboru tweeted that he wants to propose a new recording method for V5.[99]

YAMAHA Corporation/Bplats, Inc.
  • When speaking about possible future updates to Unity-Chan, her developers spoke that if they feel they need to do fixes, the voice will likely come out around 2020. The vocal will reflect the growth of Kakumoto in 2020 if this occurs.[100]
AH-Software

In an interview, Tomohide Ogata expressed a desire to produce English versions of their VOCALOIDs, however, the project is too complex. He went on to explain that because all of their providers are Japanese, they would would rather seek English speakers of a similar voice to the Japanese versions from the United States and United Kingdom. They are currently considering how to provide bilingual capabilities for now, but are focusing on Japanese first before other languages such as English, Spanish, etc. They acknowledge the demand across the world for the vocals and want to move a plan into place as quickly as possible.[101]

Shanghai HENIAN Information Technology Co. Ltd.

In a Q/A session with Shanghai HENIAN, fans asked questions about a possibility to update their VOCALOID3s. The company responded that it was always in consideration, but noted that upgrading a VOCALOID was not an easy job. It would require a lot of time, funding, and effort in order to revisit a VOCALOID, and the company's current operations and survival simply does not allow them to update any vocals for the time being.[102] However, when asked about their plans, Shanghai HENIAN revealed that they were hoping to create a voicebank for Yuezheng Longya. It was also mentioned that there may be plans to create VOCALOID4 updates for Luo Tianyi, YANHE, and Yuezheng Ling.[103] In September 2017, preparations for a YANHE upgrade was mentioned.[104] Tianyi V4 was released in December 2017. In July 2018, it was confirmed that Ling was in the the recording process for VOCALOID5.

When Longya's voicebanks, "Normal" and "Soft", were revealed, Rosary stated that a "Power" voicebank was planned but was set aside to make time to focus on developing and releasing Mo Qingxian and Zhiyu Moke. The "Power" voicebank was labelled as delayed and may see a future release.[105]

MI7 Japan Inc.

It was confirmed that Macne Nana French was noted to be a possible future vocal due to her provider also being able to speak French. With the cancellation of ALYS, the possibility of a French Nana is now limited.

In regards to the entire Macne family becoming Vocaloids, there is increasing demand for this to occur. However, the problem right now is money and this may have to be figured out. Options such as Kick starter and other crowd funding options are being considered.[106]

When asked again about the possibility for other Macne vocals to get VOCALOID voicebanks, they said that getting a contract/ license was expensive and would depend on how successful Nana and Petit are.[107]

Akatsuki Virtual Artists

In an August 2017 interview with VNN, it was asked if it was possible for LUMi to have an English voicebank in the future. The AVA staff answered that there are no plans, but noted they have an interest in making one someday. This is also dependent on how well LUMi's Japanese voicebank sells. When asked about a Chinese voicebank, AVA noted they're more likely to support the Chinese fandom through concerts rather than a new vocal for LUMi.

It was also asked if a new VOCALOID or further developments for LUMi would be possible. AVA responded that both were in consideration but would rather focus solely on LUMi for the time being.[108]

Fakes/JokesEdit

OfficialEdit

  • Kasane Teto was an April Fool's Day joke on April 1, 2008 made out by the perpetrators to be a new Crypton Future Media VOCALOID. The legacy of this prank continued on for years after its original run and even today some less-informed fans believe she is a VOCALOID. Some time after the joke, an UTAU voicebank for her was created.
    • The group behind Teto, the "VIPPERS", have also passed off other characters ("VIPPERLOIDS") as being by Crypton Future Media (actually a variation, like CRVIPTON or CRVYPTON), such as Namine Ritsu, "CV03" Yokune Ruko, and "CV04" Kotone Tsuru.
  • On April 1, 2012, VocaTone announced that "James" would be made into a VOCALOID known as Bird-loid, however, this was an April Fools day joke.[109]
  • Another April Fools' day joke in 2012 was "Animaloid", which turned out to be also a hint about the upcoming MAYU VOCALOID.
  • Furimoman, was an April 1, 2014 VOICEROID/VOCALOID3 male vocal from AH-Software Co. Ltd..[110][111] Furimoman was featured alongside other AH-Software characters later on in April 2014 during a live stream event.[112]
  • Itoh Hiroyuki was an April 1, 2015 VOCALOID4 male vocal from Crypton Future Media, Inc.. His voicebank was claimed to use the E.V.E.C. system, making him a V4X and he was part of the "CEO Vocal Series" of Crypton. When his cart button is clicked, the button moves off screen and is replaced with a small advertisement to purchase Megurine Luka V4X instead.[113]
  • Kaede-san was an April 1, 2016 female cat by YAMAHA. She contains the banks Ikaku, Normal, Matatabi and English. She also comes with the JobPlugin "NekoNuigurumi". When her add to cart button is clicked, an image comes up saying 「うそニャー!」 (It's a joke, meow!).[114]
  • Hideki Kenmochi tweeted that he had been asked to make a vocal based on the politician Donald Trump's voice. The estimated price tag on such a vocal was jokingly spoken in USD as $10 million + tax.[115][116]
  • Acme Iku V4 was an April 1, 2017 VOCALOID4 female vocal from StudioS. cillia made a "demo" of this voicebank, chaosmaid. StudioS retweeted this demo. Later, was reveiled that vocal on demo is actually Yumemi Nemu with GEN parameters.[117]
  • VOCALiLi: On April 1, 2018, a male character from Shanghai Wangcheng made his debut and was introduced as VOCALiLi. He was based on Ren Li, the president of Shanghai Wangcheng, and had previously made appearances in the Butterfly manhua series as the boss.[118][119] A demo featuring his voicebank was shown.[120]

FanmadeEdit

Due to suspected scams in recent years, we urge readers be considerate and careful when supporting unconfirmed projects, especially if they ask for financial endorsement.
  • Ange Wayne: A fake VOCALOID who was spammed over many websites (mainly English speaking ones) for over a month including (but not restricted to) Yahoo Answers, YouTube, the VOCALOID Wikia and VOCALOID Otaku forums. A website was also produced for Ange Wayne.[121]
  • Rune: (not to be confused with Anri Rune) A VOCALOID who was introduced in much the same manner as Ange Wayne, it has been deemed fake until proven otherwise for its manner it was introduced in. A fake "VOCALOID3" logo is found on the video; Twitter and Facebook accounts were also made, showing poor quality art work. The company behind it, "AudX", does not appear to exist.
  • Ion-Nation: Appeared in Late 2012, boasting a boy-band of young male VOCALOIDs. They made several videos and claimed to be part of "VocaTonF and PowerFK".
  • Taku: On October 31, 2013, a group called "VocaloMaker" claimed to be making a Spanish-Japanese VOCALOID that would need further approval from YAMAHA to continue. The video "demonstrating" Taku has been removed.
  • Seion Kodokuna: On March 30, 2014, a YouTube channel by the name of 未来のメディア (Mirai no Media Co.) uploaded what was claimed to be a demonstration of a new private VOCALOID using the voice of "a 10-year-old boy". Two more demos were released, one of the two covering a Brazilian song using the Japanese phoneme set, and also including further details on the vocals. The description noted that the VOCALOID would be a tri-lingual bank, using Japanese, English, and Portuguese. However, it was later revealed in the description of the fifth video uploaded that the user had created both the account and videos as a joke, as well as the VOCALOID used for this was that of the POCALOID version of Masaoka Azuki with GEN parameters increased.
  • VIBE: On December 28, 2014, a small group decided to create a local joke for Spain's Day of the Innocents, where idea was to make the UTAU, VIBE, into a "VOCALOID4" with a Portuguese voicebank and extra phonemes to mimic Spanish and English. The group had designed a silhouette and a fake screenshot of the VOCALOID4 engine with edited in phonemes and voicebanks. The voice provider of the UTAU posted the images onto the VIBE fanpage, only to gain a few likes. However, by the next day, the joke was found by a humor page and the "news" was moved over to another website, who thought VIBE was actually going to becoming a VOCALOID. As the page was still local, the group behind VIBE kept silent. Afterwards, VIBE's "VOCALOID4 announcement" became viral in social media sites such as Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook, obtaining more attention from the Western fans. To continue the joke, the voice provider "leaked" information about VIBE's "development" on Twitter. Eventually, on the night of December 29, the voice provider admitted that VIBE becoming a VOCALOID was a hoax, however, she was inspired by the fan's reaction to the joke. While VIBE is not a VOCALOID, the group is now motivated to try to make the fake "VOCALOID" a reality.[122]
  • STELLA: In early 2015, a virtual idol was introduced as a private 'Virtual Idol' made for a program that was based on common synthesis architecture. She was intended to raise money for the Americans for the Arts Foundation.[123] She was later 'revealed' to be a VOCALOID4 with three voicebanks: "Core" (original), "Sun" (Power)" and "Moon" (Soft).[124] On January 18, a viewer noticed an issue with a STELLA demo, where the video was edited with an overlay.[125] It was then proven that STELLA was not an actual VOCALOID and the video was removed as soon as this was pointed out.[126][127]
  • IVY: appeared in Jan 2016 under the name of "Project Jupiter". Project claimed to have the backing of PowerFX. In less than a day of announcement, project was announced cancelled due to 'negative feedback'. Though "proof" of legitimacy was supplied, proof was dismissed as suspected hoax by some and there was doubt on the financial backing choice as instead of using a site like "Kickstarter" the project was prepared to use "GoFundMe".[128]
