What is Vocaloid?

Vocaloid is a singing voice synthesizer that was created by Yamaha Corporation. The technology enables users to synthesize singing via inputted melodies and lyrics. Synthesized voices utilize data extracted from the voices of real life performers and singers. The voice data includes songs from Hatsunemiku, Gakupo, and many others from the Vocaloid voice library.

Musical works that utilize Vocaloid voices are called “Vocaloids.” The “Vocaloids” epitomize a culture of independent or in house content production. This culture has led to the release of popular CDs as well as the creation of Vocaloid as a music genre.
