BSUP01 Keine Tashi


KEINE Tashi is a character and set of vocal libraries developed for the shareware UTAUopen in new window, a singing voice synthesizer. I developed KEINE Tashi over the course of several years, from 2012 to 2015. Three vocal libraries have been released to the public, the most used one being his JPN Power Extend one. On March 10th, 2017, I announced I would cease any kind of activity related to UTAU.

Character and vocal libraries

Here’s a copy and paste of some old pages describing KEINE Tashi:


  • Codename: BSUP01 恵音བཀྲ་ཤིས་ KEINE Tashi

  • First name: Tashi (བཀྲ་ཤིས་), Tibetan name meaning “auspicious”

  • Last name: Keine (恵音), Japanese name meaning “Blessing sound”. It reads as “keine”, although its regular reading should be “megumine”.

  • Model: BSUP (Bödkay Shetang UTAU Project)

  • Number: 01

  • Gender: male

  • Birthday (lore): June 28th, 1991

  • Birthday (first release): October 14th, 2012

  • Weight: 154 lb / 70 kg

  • Heigh: 6′0″ / 182 cm (very tall for a Tibetan)

  • Hair color: black

  • Eyes color: brown~black

  • Appearance: Tashi wears a modernized Tibetan suit from the Amdo Region (Chinese: 安多 Ānduō), colored in blue. He also wears some turquoise jeweleries.

  • Favorite food: meat momo (Tibetan raviolies)

  • Character item: a Tibetan manuscript

  • Voice and creator: Phundrakopen in new window (me)

  • Likes : to meditate, calligraphy, old books, manuscripts (is that a self-insert?)

  • Dislikes: selfishness, lies, arrogance

  • Personality: Tashi is somebody very calm, sweet. He really enjoys old books and manuscripts, and he LOVES meditate! He’s never hungry, so, he can stay meditating for 2~3 days meditating, just like that, until he realizes that he should eat something. And he always keeps quiet, it’s really hard to make him angry.

    But when he is, his anger becomes wrath. Anyone who experienced it can attest how complex and difficult it is to calm him down. Strangely enough, shortly after being confronted by Tashi, the victims of this wrath see their quality of life greatly improve. Maybe these people needed to hear some truths they refused to face before?

Although I cannot add anything to this legal notice, I would also like if you followed the following rules of thumb regarding this character: any religious use of this character and its vocal libraries is forbidden, except for folk music, and Buddhist and Bön songs. However, due to the current controversy, any song linked to His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa is strictly forbidden until said controversy has been officially resolved. This is also applicable to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Venerable Shamar Rinpoche, and Tai Situ Rinpoche. If you have any question or if you are unsure, please email me.
