Voice ThingScotts Valley, CA (March 5, 2008)–Antares Audio Technologies has released Voice Thing!, a PC application for changing voices in real time. Designed for online gaming, voice chat, VoIP, and video and podcast production, Voice Thing! reportedly can change a person’s voice in a variety of ways.
Based on technology developed for Antares pro audio voice processing applications, Voice Thing! requires only a microphone and any PC application that accepts audio input. Voice Thing! lets anyone subtly or radically change the character of their voice, turn their (audio) self into a monster or alien, or create the effect of being in a wide variety of sonic environments, from small rooms to huge halls.
“With the increasing popularity of PC-based voice communication in online games and avatar-based social communities, as well as voice chat, VoIP and podcasting, we thought it would be great to make some of our pro-level technology available in an affordable and easy-to-use product for gamers and other casual users,” said Marco Alpert, Antares VP of marketing. “Whether you’re using it to sound like the character you’re playing in an online game, creating unique voices for podcasts or audio for video, or just messing around with friends, Voice Thing! sounds great and, most importantly, is just a heck of a lot of fun.”
