What is Vocaloid?

I was wondering if Vocaloid was an anime or manga? The chars were pretty neat looking so I went to look for mangas to read online and it's just a music/singing program? Does it have a series? I'm pretty freaking confused, though I want to try the program either way. lol

Vocaloid is NOT an anime or Manga.

Vocaloid is about singing.

Its different characters. Only Miku sings the song, she's not the main character.

Black Rock Shooter and Vocaloid are different not the same.

There is a manga for VOCALOID, called Hatsune Mix. It's done by KEI, the artist who draws Crypton's VOCALOIDS (except for Meiko and Kaito). It is a collection of nonsensical, non-episodic side stories, and is a far cry from good. If you want to check it out, it's up to you.

There are a handful of 4-koma and gag comics for VOCALOID published by CX (mainly a doujinshi anthology label). All fall in the realm of doujinwork in their style and legal status though they're commercially published as "parody". Even the ones illustrated by KEI provide no canon for the characters and are published without Crypton's direct involvement.

They're comparable in style to commercially published doujin collections for Shounen Jump series and 4-koma series like Lucky Star and GA.

Commercial doujinshi anthologies:

While technically manga ~ none are "official" works

I'm aware that Hatsune Mix isn't canon in any way or endorsed by Crypton (which was why I said they were side stories); I was just stating that it was done by their artist. Thanks, though.

Hmm I think the PSP/arcade games are the only official business beside the actual programs themselves.
The real joy of Vocaloid is in the great songs people produce.
:> Officialness doesn't really matter.

I totally have to cosplay a Vocaloid. lol Well, I was planning on it next year. And thanks for the clarification. I couldn't believe they had Gackpo, I was surprised they were able to get Gackt's voice, probably the only Japanese singer/actor/actress I'm familiar with out of all the Vocaloids.
