This is an article about the Gachapoid V3 software for the VOCALOID3 engine. Gachapoid is the product name for VOCALOID Ryuto.


Gachapoid Extend 2011Edit

In 2011 it was reported that Gachapoid, Lily and Gackpoid would be considered for updates if there was solid enough grounds for it. It was later confirmed that all VOCALOID2 vocals would receive VOCALOID3 updates.

Gachapoid V3 2012Edit

On December 3, 2012, in conjunction with Megpoid receiving an English update, Lily and Gackpoid were also mentioned in relation to having been considered for English vocals. However, there was no talk of an English Gachapoid in their plans.[1]

Gachapoid V3 2013Edit

On December 11, 2013, after a long period of no news, it was tweeted that they had no plans for Gachapoid V3.[2]

Gachapoid V3 2014Edit

On August 19, 2014, during a stream it was announced that Gachapoid V3 was starting production.[3]

On August 24, it was stated Gachapoid V3 would only receive a "Native" voicebank, and therefore would have no "Extend" voicebanks.[4] On September 9, two demonstrations were uploaded by SSW on YouTube and NicoVideo. On the following day, it was revealed that he would be released on September 17. It was later confirmed through a tweet that Gachapoid V3 would be download only.[5]

According to the Internet co., Ltd product page, the vocal was updated as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of Fuji TV's broadcast of Gachapin. A contest was held to celebrate the launch of Gachapoid V3.

Product Information
  Tempo: 90 ~ 150BPM  Range: F2 ~ A3
Package details
Improved version of the Gachapoid vocal. This vocal is download only.

The package also contains demo song data and illustrations.

Vocal traits as noted:
  • According to the updated V3 product page, the Gachapoid vocal is tailored for all genres.
  • Updated voice is smoother than the original.
  • Once imported into VOCALOID4, he is available for XSY.
    • As of Ver.4.3.0 of the VOCALOID4 engine, with the exception of the original Galaco and Rana vocals (which are not counted as an official Internet co., Ltd release) all VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 Internet Co., Ltd. vocals can XSY between each other.
    • In total if user was to own every VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 XSY capable INTERNET co., LTD vocal, this offers the equivalent of 812 additional voicebanks achievable via XSY. The total tone variation offered by the combined packages comes to a theoretical 841 voicebanks in total.[6]
    • Note that Users of the updated XSY list have to understand that as confirmed by Internet co., Ltd themselves, depending on the combination of the two vocals a level of extra unwanted noise may be generated.
Phonetic notes as noted:
  • Triphones added. This smooths out vowel connections, and is confirmed to be the cause for the improved smoothness overall in the Gachapoid vocal.
Software issues as noted:
  • Even with the voicebank update, Gachapoid V3 maintains the same particular vocal quality than the original VOCALOID2 package, and in consequence the library is not intended to produce realistic or natural sounding results.
  • Going outside the optimum range causes the voice to start loosing the qualities which make it sound like "Gachapin", an issue that was not so noticeable in the VOCALOID2 version. The voice begins to sound more natural whilst it is voice acted, although it is notable that due to being voice acted he always maintains a level of unrealistic qualities to the voice. Further, producers should be aware that as these occurs outside of his "best range" the quality will be lower than within the optimum recommended range given by the developers.
