Default Can anyone tell me about...?

Vocaloid? What is that about? I'm was looking for a cosplay for an upcoming convention and I keep seeing Vocaloid and was curious as to what that was about.

Vocaloid is a voice/singing synthesizer program for Computers. It allows users to input lyrics and melodies to create songs from pre-recorded voice samples. There are various versions of it, each branded as a certain singer. Such examples are Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Len and Rin. People use these programs to make these characters sing songs. Most songs would be collaborative works by users of the Japanese website Nico Nico Douga. The software and projects that are created from it have a huge following as you've seen from the large amount of cosplayers.

I hope that answers your question

Vocaloid is not an anime series either, although it does show & have promise to be IMO ^^

Also the composers who make popular vocaloid songs can make money. There are also "fanmade" and real vocaloids. An example of fanmade is Neru Akita and Haku(not sure of her last name) they have no offical voice. There has also been a video game made out of vocaloids called Project Diva (there is also a second one, I own it) Neru Akita and Haku are both in it even though they aren't offical. If you want to get into vocaloid then this song is a good example of a good vocaloid song and a popular one-



Lots of vocaloid songs have stories to them (like the one above) and some of them are nonsense. Vocaloid isn't an anime, there is an OVA for a popular Miku song called "Black Rock Shooter" (the OVA also has the same name) the main character is "Black Rock Shooter" but she's not a vocaloid, some people look at her as one so it's your choice to look at her as a vocaloid or not. Here is a list of "real" vocaloids and "fanmade" ones

"Real" vocaloids(one sthat have their own voices)
Miku Hatsune
Rin Kagamine
Len Kagamine
Gumi
Luka Megurine
Lily
SF-A2 Miki
Kaito
Meiko
Gakupo
Piko Utatane
(I might have forgotten some)

Fanmade vocaloids
Neru Akita
Haku
Genderbents of real vocaloids

Also there are "Utauloids" but those are hard to explain.
