Internet started their Vocaloid development with the first Vocaloid 2 singing synthesizer Gackpoid on July 31, 2008,[3] whose voice was provided by Japanese international singer Gackt. Gackpoid includes OPUS Express for mixing vocal parts with accompaniment or phoneme data.[4]

The second product, Megpoid, was released on June 25, 2009 and is voiced by Megumi Nakajima.[5] Due to the success of Crypton Future Media‘s “Append” series, Internet announced they will be working on an updated version of Megpoid called Megpoid Extend in 2011.[6]

Yamaha’s first Vocaloid called Lily was later sold via Internet’s website.[7] Internet also released Gachapoid based on the voice of Gachapin,[8] a popular Japanese television character. Gackpoid, Megpoid and Lily would also be released in Taiwan.[9]
