Vocaloid is a singing synthesis software created by Yamaha. Standing for "Vocal Android" it is a computer program which you can use various singing voices to create songs. Each voice is provided by a "seiyuu" or voice actor, and then named and given box art. The first Vocaloids were "Leon" and "Lola" created by Zero-G who sing in English. Then they also released Mirium. After this the first Japanese Vocaloid was released, "Meiko". After this "Kaito" was released, the first Japanese male. Vocaloid 2 was the updated version of the program, and the first voice released was "Sweet Ann" by PowerFX. Crypton, another Japanese company then released "Hatsune Miku", who is now the most popular and well known Vocaloid. Vocaloids later released by Crypton, in order of release are "Kagamine Rin and Len" and "Megurine Luka". Various other notable Vocaloids by different companies are "Gackpoid", "Megpoid", "Prima", "Hiyama Kiyoteru", "Kaai Yuki","SF-A2 Miki", "Sonika" and "Big Al". An update for "Hatsune Miku" was later released, named "Hatsune Miku Append". This contained 6 human-like voices suited to different genres. The other Crypton Vocaloids are also scheduled for Appends. Vocaloid 3 has been confirmed, and will be the most realistic sounding program yet.
I love "Vocaloid". Hatsune Miku FTW.

Vocaloid is a computer software developed by the Yamaha Corporation, famous for its musical software, motorcycles, and pianos. Vocaloid is intended to be used for the purpose of creating songs, as it is a singing synthesizer. To use, one inputs a melody and lyrics into a pianoroll interface, selects the voice(s) they would like to sing the song (i.e. the famous Hatsune Miku), and selects the 'Play' function of the software. There are currently 25 released Vocaloids, which can sing in English and Japanese, and in a short matter of time, in Chinese, Korean, and Spanish. Vocaloid is usually either loved (by fans of J-pop and anime) or detested (by those who are not J-pop or anime fans). The most popular are Hatsune Miku and Kagamine Rin/Len. Users of Vocaloid to create original songs are commonly referred to as "Producers". Notable "Producers" are 'Akuno-P/mothy', whose complex stories bring a tear to one's eye, 'Owata-P', who makes viewers laugh with his silly songs, and 'Machigeriita-P', who has successfully given Vocaloid lovers the chills with his horror-filled masterpieces.
Honestly, Vocaloid is a truly fickle thing: one moment, you hear Megpoid: Gumi singing about time travel (Time-Warped By Chopping My Stag Beetle; I kid you not, that is the song's real name), and the next about committing double suicide with her boyfriend (Sunset Love Suicide)! Guess it depends on the producer, though.

a computer remixing and voice editing program, in which one is supplied with different seiyuu, or voice actors. one shall proceed to type the melody and lyric of a song, and upon pressing play, hear that character sing the chosen song. there are many different vocaloids, but the most common is the first... hatsune miku, literally meaning 'voice of the future'
she dons bright blue pig tails, a super tiny mini skirt, arm warmers, and flings a leek. there is much of vocaloid on youtube and nico video.
I love to listen to vocaloid remixes! they sound so nice.

My favorite on vocaloid is vocaloid meiko. I love her voice!

An extremely awesome music-making software. It has countless characters to choose from with different voices. They sing best with Japanese, probably because their origins come from Nico Nico Douga. The pack includes some that aren't Vocaloids but still are included, like Kasane Teto, and remade Miku Hatsune's, like Haku, Teto, and Neru.

Vocaloid is a well-known Japanese meme, probably because of their uniqueness, their ability to sing anything, even English songs.

Vocaloid is a software that you have to pay and know Japanese kanji. The yen/dollars needed to buy the software is very expensive.
My favorite song that is sung by Vocaloid is Triple Baka, which is sung by Miku Hatsune, Teto Kasane, and Neru.

"VOCALOID" is a singing synthesizer produced by the YAMAHA corporation. You enter the lyrics of a song into the program, add music, and then you can have one of the Vocaloids sing for you. Some of the vocaloids are MEIKO, KAITO, Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Gumi Megpoid, Kamui Gapuko, and Megurine Luka. Vocaloid is neither an official Anime or Manga. It is only a singing software.
My favorite "VOCALOID" is Kagamine Len!
