Vocaloid Corner: Camui Gackpo

Originally distributed since July 2008 as Gackpoid (がくっぽいど), the male-voiced Camui Gackpo (神威がくぽ) was the very first Vocaloid released by Internet Co., Ltd., as well as the first one of the family to be voiced by a major Japanese singer.

Much like for other Vocaloids, his name is read and modeled after the person who provided the bases of its voice, which in this case is Japanese singer/actor/musician GACKT. Despite the name's origins, it's not uncommon to see this Vocaloid being referenced instead by his name's romanization of "Kamui Gakupo" (かむいがくぽ). Gackpo's Japanese-style clothing is already a huge indicator of his voice being programmed to speak and sing in Japanese only, unlike the later Internet Co., Ltd. Vocaloid Megpoid GUMI. Despite GUMI's higher popularity slowing down the works for later versions of the Gackpo Vocaloid, it gained updated versions under the VOCALOID3 and VOCALOID4 generation, being the latter gen's very first male Vocaloid voice getting a retail release.

As of today, Gackpo's voice can be heard in Taiko gaming only as part of the fictional Vana N'Ice unit.
