  • "Extend" was the original name given out as the Internet co Ltd version of Crypton Future Media's "Append" vocals. It was abandoned for "V3" when it came to actual releases.
  • Native is a updated version of the "Vocaloid2 Gackpoid" software. It is intended to be as close to the original in sound as possible but being a more updated and higher quality version of the V2 vocal.
  • "Whisper" and "Power" are the 'extend' vocals, they are the same as "Native" but the tone is different. They don't have the same samples backing them as "Native". Whisper gives a soft, gentler voice and Power does the reverse. They allow Gackpois to be used for more songs then what the "Native" allows alone, or can be used alongside them to add more depth to the song.

Although you say that, fans today still use the term "Extend" to point out Vocaloid updates that don't require their original voicebanks. :)

"Extend" could be described as an "Add-on" to the vocals. Think of it like a stack of bricks where 1 voicebank is a brick. You can have as many of these "bricks" as you like for your main vocalist (Like Gumi) to make a tower of voices for them.


"Append" would be much closer to your "Expansion pack" where you're adding more voices to a starting voice for a vocalist (Like Miku). Think of it like a game where you have the main game and expansion packs to add onto the gameplay.


"V3" is simply the term used to refer to old vocals that have been upgraded to the Vocaloid 3 engine. In some cases (Like Kaito and Gakupo) more than 1 voicebank was in the software release but not all (Like Lily).


Sorry if the examples above sounded weird but it's the best way I could describe them. :S

No it's okay, your explanations sounded fine to me :)

(PST If it's the post above the one you're about to make it's best not to quote it, especially if it's big)

Sorry, I'm still getting new to Vocaloid Wiki, I just do it to let people know that I'm replying to them, besides I'm shy ;;

There's no one else posting right no so there's really no need, or alternatively you can just write "@Serza" in your post which means you're directing the post (or that part of the post) at me.

We are okay with new editors, it takes a while to get used to being on a wikia. I've been wiki editing since 2004, if you don't give people a chance then you loose more then you gain when they walk away from the wikia.

Even I took 6 months to get used to this system... And I dove into the deep end by editing wikipedia originally. :-/
