How to use VoiceSFX

VoiceSFX is our most entertaining program. It allows you to change the pitch from Helium Breath to Sulphur Breath, Sweep Up or Sweep Down, Echo, Flange, Chorus, Robot Voice, Slow Monster, Treble, Bass, Fade In, Fade Out, and Fast Squeak. You can save to wave, mp3s, and export to wave, mp3s, and Real Audio.


Here’s how to use it. You can either take a file that’s on your computer (either wav or mp3), or record a file using your microphone, line in, internet, or anything your sound card supports. We include three sound files- sf1.wav is a bell gong, sf2.wav is a glass crashing, and sf3.wav is a scream from a woman.

Load sf1.wav. Turn everything off and listen to it. Yup, it’s a bell gong. Draw the arrow towards the bottom (towards Sulphur Breath) and click on Sweep Dn. Interesting! Then move the arrow towards Helium Breath, de-click on Sweep Dn and click on Sweep Up and Flange. Very interesting!

Load sf2.wav. Turn everything off and listen to it. OK, it’s just glass crashing- nothing too it. Then add Backwards and Flange and Slow Monster to the wav. Pretty astonishing!

Let’s say you want to record a file you have on your computer, making adjustments to change the pitch, echo, flange, chorus- it’s up to you! You can always remove the effect. You can create sound tracks, greeting cards, storytelling CDs, and MP3s, Add customized audio to your website or YouTube soundtrack. You can easily export your creations to MP3 and send them to your friends!
