What is Vocaloid?

Vocaloid is singing synthesizer application software created by the Yamaha Corporation. This software enables users to synthesize singing by just typing in lyrics and melody. The most well-known Vocaloids using this software are the ones made by Crypton Future Media: Meiko (released in 5.11.2004), Kaito (released on 17.2.2006), Hatsune Miku (the most famous Vocaloid) (released on 31.8.2007), Kagamine Rin & Len (released on 27.12.2007) and Megurine Luka (released on 30.1.2009). The next Vocaloids using this software were developed by Internet Co., Ltd.: Kamui Gakupo (released in 31.7.2008) and Megpoid (released in 25.6.2009). Recently, a new Vocaloid codenamed SF-A2 Miki has been created and released by AH Software; additionally, two other new Vocaloids have been made by AH Software named Kaai Yuki and Hiyama Kiyoteru (all three released on 04.12.2009).
