Voice modifier...

Well, I've searched the forums and came up with some results, but not really something "big" so to say...

I need help with finding avoice modifier/"synthesizer"... I need to sound a bit like... a robot : D or rather like... someone whos talking through a radio with no reception... kinda like a robot... ..'

so... I've seen that it's possible, but they're expensive... Sure, I can't pay 500$, no way, but I need somthing that works, so nothing like those 5$ neither (I've hear they're crap).

Any ideas?

I need this for two projects I'm working on, I'll use helmets for both, so space shouldn't be a problem... unless it's...huge.

btw, it might help how it's suppouse to sound... Did you see the movie Fun with Dick & Jane? You know they got those... voice things there that makes em' sound kinda like a... I don't know how to explain ..' let's say robot again, but still not like a robot ..'

(ignore the second half)

Found a link : D

something like that, but not as much robotic... more... Dath Vader like is what I'm looking for... xD (But if I can't find that and can find somthing like in the video, I'll go with that. If I can find anything, that is... : D)

So... anyone knows? :'D

And No, I am not gonna record the parts I'd like people to hear... : D

Dalek voice changer. it's $60-$80 and it comes built into a helmet but i bet you can take it out without wrecking it. if you don't know about the daleks from doctor who watch some youtube videos to see if that is the voice you want

You can also try looking at walkie talkies. Hide one as the speaker, and keep the other constantly keyed for you to talk through. Unless you need one with a static sound, so you might need to experiment with a magnet. That might mess up the reception enough.

In Sweden we don't celebrate Halloween as much as in America, so we don't got as manny things neither. I might find something, but probably not. Thanks for answering : D

JonathonWolf: hm... maybe that would work... I'll see if I can find something to work with maybe...

bros: Sounds a bit intressting, but do you know how big the helmet is? One of the helmets I'm gonna do is quite small...

Just can't let go of that "Fun with Dick and Jane" thing XD no one know's if this might exist somewhere? The only things I find when I searsh is for your computer, not something "portable"...

Thanks fo the help : D

Apparently, this is the same kind of thing people use for stormtroopers.

hoh, I'll check that out, I think I'll look into the cheaper things and destroy (...) some, and see what effect I can get. : D

Thanks for the link : D



*But I'm still looking for the "Fun with Dick and Jane" thing, so if anyone knows, I'd like to know. I've searched the net and didn't fins anything so far.*

Bump...

no, not a bump (ok, a small one) but I thought I might ask at the same time...

If you own a toy voice modifier, how is the quality and what's the name for the modifier? Can people hear you at all (Is the quality som bad/is it really good)?

This is closer to what you were looking for. Looks like the main unit is about the size of a shoebox, though.

EDIT: Found this as well.

Thanks for the links : D

I believe I've found the orange (Discovery) one before, and I've read rewievs that said it's both crap and good... So it's... confusing... ..'

A shoebox? it dosn't look like that from the view, 15-20cm wide maybe? oO


And the other one is what I find mostly (at least they look kinda like that...) so does anyone know about the quality of that one? I read about this one too that it's both crap and very good... so everything is quite confusing ..'

Thanks again : D
