Porter Robinson has always been a huge fan of Vocaloid music, and we can hear a ton of inspiration for that in his To feed album in the way he modulates his own voice on many songs. Today, in collaboration with Yamaha, Porter officially released his own voice bank based on the effects he used in To feed called “Po-uta”.
Starting March 7, the new voicebank is available for purchase (download only) from the official VOCALOID STORE. The voicebank is also included in the “Plus Voicebank Set” for VOCALOID6, which is also available for purchase and download from the official store.
VOCALOID music changed my life and was a key influence for about 10 years.
I REALLY hope Vocaloid fans like it especially
it meant a lot to me when Sad Machine came out and I felt like despite being an outsider to the scene, the VOCALOID community embraced it

The new “Po-uta” voice bank for VOCALOID6 allows users to create voices from To carry Robinson, authentically reproducing the vocals used in his own songs, known for their clarity and exquisite highs. This ensures a striking presence that won’t be overshadowed even by loud music. Using VOCALOID’s “Style Presets” feature, users can also choose from thirteen Robinson-approved singing style presets to automatically adjust vocal style, pitch, and more. This makes it easy to recreate vocals used in hits like “Shelter” or “Musician”.
To show off Po-uta’s abilities, Porter created a demo song titled “Humansongs”. Listen below!
