So I'm composição literária this hopefully to help people who are newer to the fandom and don't really know all of the vocabulary a person may drop when talking about vocaloids. I'm going to try and include as many words as I can and make the definitions as clear as possible, please comment if there's a word you'd like to see on this list or needs a better definition ^^.

Vocaloid1 (V1)- refers to the first group of vocaloids to be released, using early, now primitive V1 technology (basically they don't sound as clear/realistic as vocaloids from later series) includes vocaloids such as LEON, LOLA, Miriam, kaito, and meiko.

Vocaloid2 (V2) -refers to segundo group of vocaloids to be released all using what I'll leave as saying "V2 technology" basically meaning they sound clearer than V1, but not as much as a V3 may sound. Includes vocaloids such as Miku, Rin, Len, Luka, Gumi, Gackupo, Lily, Piko, VY2, etc.

Vocaloid3 (V3) - refers to third and most current group of vocaloids being released. All using the latest technology in hopes of sounding even clearer and mais realistic than past vocaloids. Includes vocaloids such as SeeU, Oliver, Merli, Maikia, YOHIOloid, Avanna, Mayu, IA, Cul, etc.


Voicebank (VB) - Every vocaloid has a voicebank, literally their voice. When a person says a vocaloid has multiple voicebanks it means the vocaloid is capable of mais than one language. For example "Luka was the first vocaloid to have separate voicebanks for English and Japanese" Also can refer to a vocaloid in production. "Upcoming voicebanks"

UTAU/UTAUloid - A UTAU is a fanmade vocaloid that was given it's own voice using the UTAU program. A program that allows a person to manipulate their own voice into one working like a vocaloids. See link

fanloid - Like an original character based off of vocaloids. While they have their own designs and characters they DO NOT HAVE ORIGINAL VOICEBANKS. See link

Utaite - A person (human) who sings covers of vocaloid songs usually on Nico Nico Douga or Youtube. Some popular ones include 96Neko, Ashe, Kradness, and Miku-tan. See link

Voiceroid - A program currently being used in some V3 vocaloids to improve TALKING clarity. See Yuzuki Yukari or Tohoku Zunko

Derivative - A fã made character based of an official character. Examples include Yowane Haku, Akita Neru, Sakine Meiko, Hachune Miku, and gender bends.

Pitchloid - A fanloid who's voice is made from pitching a current vocaloids voicebank up or down, can be illegal.

So these seguinte 3 definitions are confusing, I'm trying my best to define them, if someone else has a better definition please comment.

VIPPERloid - VIPPERloids are vocaloids companies create as April Fools jokes saying they are going to release them (perceived as real vocaloids in production) Teto Kansane is the most popular example. See link

Boukaloid - roughly translates to "so-and-so-caloid" (fake vocaloid). Popular example being Akita Neru. See link

Voyakiloid - Fanmade vocaloids that are portrayed as being depressed or grumpy due to their lack of cantar talent. Literally translates to "Grouchloid" A popular example being Yowane Haku. See link
