Out of curiosity I downloaded a few feebie Voice Transformation programs for use with headset voice-gaming (Skype, Ventrilo, Teamspeak, etc). It had a few sliders for adjusting the waveform of the voice, changing pitch and timbre to make the voice sound male, female, very young, robotic, and so on.
However, they’re very … digital. Choppy. Of course, I don’t have a sound card in that machine.
Is this technology going to get any better? Or have we hit a wall with how much we can alter a voice without detecting the artifacts?
