VocaDB has the little known events feature which was originally used for album releases such as Comiket and The Voc@loid M@ster. Earlier, events were expanded to cover character birthdays. Now I want to expand the use of events on VocaDB to cover concerts as well. Currently, concert setlists are modeled as song lists, but I have made it possible […]
I wanted to write something about a new feature we implemented. It’s a field for artist’s personal description.
2016 is now over and again it’s time for some reflection. One of the big things for us in 2016 was reaching a milestone of 100 000 songs, further solidifying VocaDB as the definite source of Vocaloid/UTAU discography information. Thanks to all of our editors for that! The number of edits and songs contributed per day has […]
VocaDB gets new editors almost every week. Some of them are artists who registered to update their artist profile. Others add one or two songs and then leave. But there’s also those who stay. VocaDB is designed to be as easy to edit as possible: the editor inputs minimal amount of information and the system generates bidirectional […]
2016 is coming to an end in about 1 month. I decided to write something about VocaDB – where we are we now and where we’re going.
Our goal is that the information on VocaDB is both accurate and reliable. Because VocaDB is a database specifically made for singing synthesizers, those synthesizer voicebanks are given more attention than on other music databases. If it’s known that the song uses a specific variation of a voicebank (such as Miku V4X Sweet), we want to display that […]
As noted earlier, VocaDB’s translation system is basically limited to 4 language options: original, Romanized, English and other. Up until now this included lyrics, meaning you weren’t able to specify the actual language of the lyrics (unless it was English). This made it inconvenient to add translations to many languages. That’s now fixed. There’s fields for original and […]

VocaDB’s user interface is currently available in English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Russian and German. I’m extremely grateful to the people who have helped with those translations. For reference, here are statistics about the visitors’ native languages, as reported by Google Analytics: Sometimes I get requests to add more user interface languages to VocaDB. VocaDB includes a lot of strings, […]
Maybe you’ve seen the Suggestions, requests, features to improve the website thread on the site. Related to that, I want to explain a few things. I consider VocaDB a large, mature website. It’s feature complete in the sense that it has everything that I originally planned it would (and more), and there aren’t any major limitations/problems with editing or browsing the […]
