Vocanode is an artist community and host that for creative VOCALOID/UTAU works outside Japan. Their slogan is "The video hub for overseas VOCALOID and UTAU"
The site as a response to other Vocaloid-related communities as Piapro and CreCrew, and as response to the lack of community for the "oversea" Producer. While the website also hosts images and audio, the majority of the site is a directory of videos added by their original creators. Registration on the website automatically confers the user a channel, and users can add media to their channels, which currently has to be in the form of links to YouTube videos. Most videos are of either original or cover songs made using VOCALOID and/or UTAU. Metadata for videos is more customized for the community and users can add videos to albums, playlists, etc.
