What is a voice changer?
A voice changer is exactly what the name states; it changes the sound
of your voice. In addition, many voice changers can go further than just changing
the sound of your voice, many voice changers can change the gender of a voice
(for instance, from female to male) and enhance the voice in many different
Voice changing technology is primarily used for fun, but it can also be helpful
for home security or to hide your identity when an unknown person calls your
phone. Most voice changing devices are fairly cheap and are reasonably priced
for the average person to afford.
Frequently Asked Questions:Answers
and questions about voice changers.
How Do "Voice Changers" Work?
The vast majority of "voice changers" shift the pitch-sensitive fundamental
waves of the users voice (via microprocessor) and offer various pitch shift
options. "Low end" models offer less pitch options and use a less
effective (and lower cost ) microprocessor than "high end" models.
Since pitch is only one element of the human voice, there are limitations as
to how much change can be made without resulting in an "unnatural"
or "digital" sounding voice. High end (Pro) models use additional
electronic circuits to offset or buffer the unnatural sounds as well as more
efficient pitch shifting microprocessors . Lower end models are generally for
use as a novelty item for practical jokes or for kids. (Kids love them as gifts)
If you have a serious application, consider only the "Pro" models.
Can I Really Change A Female Voice To a Male Voice And Vice
I'm glad you asked that question. The answer however, is not so simple. Since
everyone's voice is different, everyone's result when using a voice changer
is somewhat different. Generally speaking, a voice changer can increase or decrease
the pitch of your voice by one or two octaves while maintaining a realistic
sounding result. They do, in fact, a very efficient job of disguising your voice
even to people who know you well. Most people can find two or three settings
on the voice changer that, with a little practice, can have amazing results.
The more selection options the voice changer offers, the better the results
and the more "voices" you can effectively use. However, for a typical
male voice to sound like a typical female voice or vice versa, you must change
the voice by several octaves. This usually results in a voice sounding like
Mickey Mouse or Darth Vader. The same applies to a child to adult sound and
adult to child sound. On the other hand, some customers have reported good results
in "gender" changing. We believe this to be rare exceptions to the

What About The New Executive Pro Voice Transformer?
I was afraid you were going to ask! The New Voice "transformer" is
a "horse of a different color", "a new dog", and very different
from a voice "changer". Here is a simplified explanation, for more
details, click on product in our "Voice Changers" menu.
The Voice Transformer addresses not only the pitch, but also the "formant"
element of the human voice. "Formants" are non pitch-sensitive fixed
harmonics that change along with vocal cords and the physical shape of the vocal
tract to add distinctive characteristics to a person's voice. Got That? Pop
quiz will be forthcoming! The Voice Transformer also give you control of timbre,
tone, and even reverberation (In case you want someone to think you are in church
when you are actually having Sunday morning "brunch" with your neighbor's
wife!-Just kidding, of course).
If you don't understand the theory, no matter, here is the
Slide controls give you an almost infinite number of voice selections.
A male can be efficiently transformed to a female voice and vice versa.
A child can be efficiently transformed to an adult voice and vice versa.
An 8 "presets" memory allows you to instantly change to preselected
voices in the same conversation. (You can be the entire board of directors on
conference call and there is no chance that two people will be talking at once!)
Very user friendly, connects to your phones handset cord jack in seconds.
In Summary, for the professional, or someone who wants the "best of the
best", this is the unit. As you might expect, this unit is considerably
more "pricey" than our line of voice "changers".
