Below is a list list of job plug-ins for Vocaloid. Each of these plug-ins is designed to enhance the Vocaloid software usage in some way, from minor to major.
This feature of the software was introduced starting from Vocaloid3 and Yamaha also features their own plug-in store, where users of the software can purchase these plug-ins. Plug-ins, however, are not necessarily supported by Yamaha themsleves and are maintained by their programmers who made them. With that in mind, it is worth noting that ones in particular that are not made by Yamaha and may not be 100% guaranteed to work with all features of the software, or in fact other plug-ins for the software. Many of the plug-ins developed by the Yamaha Corporation are free, therefore these additional plug-ins are often worth trying out.
Despite their usefulness, a few of the plug-ins may be covered by software DAW or other audio enhancing software. Therefore they are not always useful for the specific Producer working with the software, and Vocaloid is perfectly usable without the aid of these plug-ins. Some plug-ins are already included with the Vocaloid 3 editor despite appearing in the Vocaloid store and therefore are a part of the standard Vocaloid package.
It is not just Yamaha producing plug-ins for Vocaloid 3 and there are currently other unoffical plug-ins being produced. There are some risks involved with these particular plug-ins, however, this does not necessarily mean they will harm Vocaloid 3 or your computer.
Do note, that Vocal libraries voicebanks themsleves are counted also as a type of Plug-in for the software; they are however not listed here, as they are listed as "vocal library plug-in" rather then "job plug-in".
Plug-ins which are featured as part of the regulaur Vocaloid3 software will be listed on the Vocaloid3 page. Some plug-ins are not listed in certain language versions of the Vocaloid store, so you may not be able to purchase these without looking at the specific version to find them.
VocaListener is a singing synthesis system that automatically estimates parameters for singing synthesis from a user's singing voice with the help of song lyrics.. Its creators are Tomoyasu Nakano and Masataka Goto. VocaListener is the most anticpated of the plug-ins as its existence was known and demostrated since Vocaloid 2.
AIST（National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology) developed the system in where users can adjust the limits to where the original singer can normally sing to where the Vocaloid can better match the original singer's inflections and details to the point of sounding like the original singer.
In demos, Hatsune Miku and the Append voicebanks for her were used not only seperately but blended together, this added many layers to the singing output that a single voicebank alone could not achieve, resulting in a much more human-like tone.
- Demonstrations of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin(Act1), KAITO, MEIKO, Kagamine Rin(ACT2), Kagamine Len(ACT2), Gackpoid, Megurine Luka, Megpoid, Kiyoteru Hiyama, Kaai Yuki, SF-A2 miki, Hatsune Miku(Append), Lily, VY1, Gachapoid, Nekomura Iroha, Utatane Piko, Kagamine Rin(Append), Kagamine Len(Append), VY2
VocaListener was never made available for download. This version was restricted to research groups only.
VocaListener2 was announced in July, 2010. The "2" has since been dropped from the name.

Master Tune is a simple Plug-in designed to finely adjust musical scale in a whole part to such as 442Hz. Chaneable range is 412.0 - 455.0Hz. It was designed by Yamaha themselves.

Tunes the selected notes in a manner similar to the style of an 80's Japanese idol singer, by tuning pitch bend up at the end of the note. Made by Yamaha.
A Japanese only plug-in (will not work with voicebank libraries of any other language). Fills up the selected portion with metronomic "pi" and "po" syllables.

Adds vibrato to all the notes in the selected portion, using dynamics and pitch bend instead of the built-in vibrato feature. Developed by Yamaha.
