While "VOCALOID" refers to the engine version of the same name, "VOCALOID(s)" can also apply directly to the mascot/avatar/persona of each "character" made for the VOCALOID engine. However, not all VOCALOIDs have a physical form or a biography.

For a list of VOCALOID voicebanks by engine, see Status.

The term "VOCALOIDs" was a term fans of the software began using as a method of identifying the mascots specifically for the VOCALOID™ software. While most packages adopt a character, not all opt for one and some remain avatarless. The mascot, or lack of one, is intended to act as a starting point of which the Producer can expand on and adapt their work to. The design itself can be adapted and altered to the Producers needs. Some mascots have a biography included with their package while others leave only vague hints or none at all. The mascots also form a starting point for the marketing of merchandise based on the VOCALOID.

The mascot has no effect on the software itself and is done purely for decorative reasons.

ClassificationEdit

In terms of classification, it is generally considered that "VOCALOIDs" earn their classification when:

  • They have a VOCALOID™-powered vocal released. This includes characters from games with vocals powered by the VOCALOID™ software, as well as privately obtained licensed vocals.
  • They officially are confirmed as having a licensed vocal in development or planning stage has begun with a company who has licensing to produce Voicebanks.

Derivatives are not classified as "VOCALOIDs" nor are characters powered by other software such as UTAU and neither are supported by YAMAHA Corporation.

Note that Yamaha themselves only acknowledge Vocaloids that have been released under license. Vocals in development, but not currently licensed, though use the engine are not acknowledged by them. For those interested contacting Yamaha on unreleased vocals directly, please bare this in mind as Yamaha may not acknowledge Vocaloids in developement.
