IDEA : Voice Changing Application {VCA}
« on: April 19, 2011, 09:03:33 PM »
Greetings everyone!

Well, the title primarily says it all.  Essentially I am looking for some software that would allow me to change the pitch, timbre, frequency, vibrato, tone, anything and everything in regards to the voice.  I am not adept at programming, one day when I have spare time lol, but I hope that someone here will be able to help me with this request.

Something that would allow one to change the gender, species { alien, fairy, leprechaun, etc }, tone, and pitch of ones voice, either through sliders or numerical inputs would rock. Also, the ability to use it for Skype or video recording software would be nice too.

Hopefully this post is not too disjointed.

I downloaded that app to try it, but it claims I need to download "ther virtual driver"...  what virtual driver?

as far as I can tell, I have no clue what virtual driver to install so this software is a bust for me.  Thanks for the find though!

Are you holding someone for ransom?

Or a serial killer who doesn't want the detective investigating to know the perp is his partner when he leaves taunting phone messages.   :Thmbsup:

yeah, was a long night last night  :P

No, I have a few animations that I am working on that I want to add differing voices to and I don't have the vocal talent to do so.  I am making some children's animations and my voice is a bit tooo deep to pull of a child's voice per se :D

A friend of mine used to participate in a voice acting forum where people would volunteer to work on various projects (some were also paid). I don't remember which forum it was exactly but you might try these:

Thanks for the suggestions Oshyan.   I will look into them and decide if it will work for me.

I was hoping to just get away with some software that would do this on the fly for me though.  I can use my audio recording software to do it, but setting things up through that often take a long time to get working properly without audio loss due to the way the plugins were originally written.

Perhaps this is just too complex for the Coding Snacks arena.

Yeah, you might find a tool to do it but the results will be better with even an amateur voice actor I reckon. :)

I don't know how Google Voice Search works, but if it requires that my own utterings get sent to Google, I might feel more comfortable having some kind of transformation/changing happen to such data before it gets sent on to them.
