As of today Voice Changer is on sale for $.99.
Normal price is $1.99.
Tomsoft’s Voice Changer does exactly what the name says… it changes your voice! Record something goofy, choose your desired sound effect, and then press the Play button to hear your voice warped with the effect of your choice.
There are currently eight different ways you can mess with your recordings:
- Slow Down
- Speed Up
- Evil Demon
They’re all fun to play around with, but my personal favorite is Evil Demon because it can make you sound like the super-deep voice you hear in movies when a girl gets a phone call from the psychopath who’s fixing to chop her head off.
You can save your altered recordings for playback later which is good, and Voice Changer’s App Store page says that soon you’ll be able to email those recordings after a future update gets released.
One thing I don’t quite get is why there’s a (fake) volume control pictured on the app… volume control would be great but this little “aesthethic” touch in the graphics really should be taken out until it becomes an actual control (which is apparently in the works as well).
Something else to be aware of is that Voice Changer doesn’t like long recordings. I tried to make recordings of various lengths, and about two minutes was the longest one I was able to successfully create. Other recordings of three and five minutes (which I tried several times) couldn’t be saved because the app froze up, making the Stop button untappable.
Chances are you won’t want to make long recordings anyway because that means waiting a longer time for Voice Changer to crunch your audio with the desired effect. If you stick to recordings of one minute or less you should be ok.
I don’t know what I’d do with this app other than maybe use it to make some carefully orchestrated prank phone calls, but I could see kids really having a lot of fun with it (probably by making carefully orchestrated prank phone calls). Voice Changer can be a fun little toy in the right hands and it’ll be even better when the email function becomes available, so if you won’t miss a buck (or two, after the sale) go ahead and give it a try.
