Voice Changer Software Into Voice Changer Hardware

I'm making a costume. It's a cosplay. What I Have: Voxal Voice Changer. I already know it's capable of making exactly the voice I need. What I Need: A way of synthesizing my voice with that voice effect as part of my costume. Is this possible? The voice I need isn't a very complex one, but it's not a simple pitch change, either. All it is is a little flanger and a little vibrato, but so far I can't find voice changer devices that allow this without being hooked up to a smart phone or a computer, nor was I able to find portable voice changers that included this effect. They're all girthy with lights and dials, and that's hard to conceal on a costume. I noticed Voxal has an export voice feature that allows users to create .voxal files out of the voices, so I'm wondering if there are existing voice changers that could have this file uploaded to it some how, or if there is a way to make or modify a voice changer to do this. Let me know what you think.

Voice-cancelling earphones or headphones

Many brands compete with noise-cancelling technology, but all offerings seem tuned to mitigate frequencies other than voices.  I appreciate that on an airplane or gun range, but in an open office plan, the only common attempt at mitigating vocal pollution is to add white noise variants.  White noise systems have limited effectiveness and alleged health drawbacks.  My noise cancelling headphones cut the white noise, effectively enhancing voices that I want to shut out.  I can use "sound-isolation" instead of "noise-cancellation" but they are bulky and hot.  I'd think it would be possible to use noise-cancellation technology to target vocal frequencies.  Thoughts?

troubleshooting voice modulator

About four years ago I bought this robot voice kit for a halloween costume: http://www.kemo-electronic.de/en/Hobby-School/B107-Robot-voice.php (the scematics are near the bottom of the data sheet) I never finished it and now that I put it together it's not working. The signal goes through to the amplifier, but without the modulating happening. Does anyone know what the problem could be, or if there is a way to narrow it down without desoldering and testing the components individually? Thanks

Voice changers

I know voice changers have been done, but theres only 2 instructables for some rather simple changers and other forum queries are quite old. What I'm looking for is a diy, real time voice changer circuit that can alter pitch and modulation, preferably with pots for fine tuning rather than presets, hopefully without the tinny sound I hear from the majority of samples I've listened to. An amped output with volume control would be cool too to overpower the users voice a bit easier. I'm looking for an output akin to this as an ideal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dqr5K0K4wL4 I'm no stranger to micro electronics, I can read codes and, with a little review, understand gates and ICs but still have no clue how to design my own circuits to do more than flipflop and turn things on and off. Any ideas ? Kits, DIY plans etc ? Simple and portable is better, want to incorporate it into a costume.

Help with JARVIS-like Smart Home

Hey guys, I am planning to do a project with Smart Home theme. I would like to create JARVIS-like application, which would be able to recognize my voice and then do appropriate action. Example: Temperature Sensor Me: "Jarvis, Show Temperature" Jarvis: -"Temperature displayed sir" I am planning to buy a very cheap Tablet, on which I would like to write an Android Application, which would create "jarvis" and other activities. For example, if I say "Show Temperature" the activity would pop up, where the temperature will be displayed. I will messure temperature with a Thermometer (DS1280 most probably). And I'd like to use a Bluetooth module to communicate Wireless with them. Temp. Sensor -------- > Arduino board ------------> Tablet All of the above are on different locations. I need help with this project, so if anyone could do an instructable on how to do this - would be really awesome! What do I need ? - Temp. Sensor - Bluetooth Module - Arduino Mega - Speech regonition software (BitVoicer probably) - anything else? Also, is the TFT display (http://www.geeetech.com/wiki/index.php/3.2TFT_LCD) good enough to replace the Tablet ?  Meaning, can I write such an Application to this display ? Thanks, David

The problem is that I haven't found a chip that will store so many sounds seperately, so do you know of any???I've seen the Arduino Wave shield, but I am looking for something with not so many parts.EDIT: I have decided to use the wave shield design, so I don't need any more feedback, unless you have a really brilliant idea

Help with an Idea to hack Amazon Echo Alexa for robotics

Hi Everyone! I have been consumed with the idea of using an Amazon Echo as a foundation for a robotics project.  It has a simplistic IFTTT command ability which would make great functionality for a robot.  There are lots of simple on off switches already compatible with the device.  The Echo is cloud based and constantly learning so the voice cammands will be come more and more streamlined over time.  It already is wifi and bluetooth enabled, can play music and search the web for you.   My idea is to add mobility.  I don't know if I will ever attempt this but I am intrigued to see what we can come up with.  Using RFID tags to identify people in my home, I can imagine easily telling Alexa to come to me or to do certain activities.  Set alarms for reminders to take medicine and then bring it to you etc.  I just feel like this allows an easy leap for some home robotics.   One idea is to marry it to a Roomba so it has other functionality.  Add a wireless video camera.  Keeping it as "off the shelf" components as possible would be great.  I don't know where I am headed with this but I would love for others on here to chime in and put in their two cents worth.  Thanks for reading this and I hope to hear from some of you.   update:  I'm thinking of making an Instructable from what I've learned so far. instead of posting add ons here in comments.

Leonardo - Warning System + Voice Recognition

I designed and built a warning system, using 3 sensors, that detect when an object is approaching. The system also has a toggle switch and a buzzer. When the toggle switch is in the OFF position: If there are no objects nearby the LED turns GREEN, if either sensor 1 or 3 detect an object the LED turns YELLOW and finally if the object is between sensors 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 the LED turns RED. When the toggle switch is in the ON position:  Same as OFF position + buzzer  beeping depending on color of LED. Now I would like to add voice recognition to my system. I purchased a JY-MCU Bluetooth Wireless Serial Port Module and was able to test it using a simple program that changed the color of my LED depending on the command I gave it using my phone. My problem now is that whenever I tried to add the voice recognition capability to my warning system its not working. The code I'm using makes sense but I'm new at this so I might be missing something. I'll be posting 3 codes: 1)Warning System 2)Test for Voice Recognition 3) Current non-working code.

MS Agent Voice Recognition ...not TTS

I can't seem to locate any code snippets for the MS Agent Voice Recognition control. I understand It's not really supposrted any longer but I recall the voice recognition was incredibly accurate; especially for its time. The text-to-speech wasn't much impressive, but I'd really like to see some code for the VR; just to jog my memory as to what needs to be done. I remember it being relatively simple to create your own database or data file of words [or hard code it]. I have VB6 loaded with everything ready to go [tts AND vr], just don't remember how to initiate the "listening" and interface with the input. I have the current MSNET IDE, but not sure if those old controls are compatible. If I have to switch over though, it's no biggie. Any help is appreciated. I have an excellent ible idea I'd like to see come to life.

How do I splice 2 cell phone voice cables together

I have a Palm Treo 700p and a PhoneLabs Dock n Talk that I'd like to connect. Currently, the only way to connect them is via Bluetooth, which stinks, as there is a long lag between placing/answering a call and making the actual connection. Some phones connect via cable, which has no lag (these cables carry voice, similar to a handsfree cable). I've got the cable that plugs into the Dock n Talk box and I've got two different cable choices for my Palm (2.5mm headphone jack for voice/handsfree, and a Palm/USB data cable: http://www.amazon.com/SYNC-CABLE-PALM-TREO-700wx/dp/B0030BH3EC). Can I splice anything together to connect the Dock n Talk to my Palm via cable?

OK so i just thought of something, but I don't know if it can be done. Ive googled and such, but i was unsuccessful. Is it possible to take an audio frequency and create electricity? Similar to a solar panel, but the instead of taking light, i take sound. Ive seen on instructables those LED candles that play a song. You can hear it with a solar panel and an amplifier. I want to know how to do the reverse. Could I take a sound, and power something with it. it would have to have SOME power to begin with, i would assume. maybe a charged capacitor? maybe i would take a microphone and somehow convert it into power (not data) I don't know how to do this. Does audio have positive and negative leads when connected to a circuit? this is really cool. I could charge my cell phone by talking on it! I could scream at my light bulb for being turned off (due to know power) and watch it light! _could anyone please either post an instructable (and let me know), post a detailed explanation on how to do this, or post a link to said detailed explanationThanks!

I'm stuck between a rock and a voice coil.

I know I think I've posted a question like this before. I have a new sub, it's a car subwoofer origionaly (200 watt max (not rms)). So far it's running off the internal amplifier that came out of my old/blow sub (it was rated for around 100 watts). And I have it ported out the side. I had to do some work on the dust cap, it was torn and the torn peice was flapping and making a lot of noise, so I put nail polish enamel on it, a few coats and seems to have worked, but now on the odd beat it sounds like one of the wires going to the voice coil are loose or it's rubbing on something because it makes almost a crackle noise. I figure if it was rubbing, it would make that noise on every singe beat, but it doesn't always. Is there a chance some of the enamel dripped down into the thing the voice coil sits in and it's rubbing somehow? Thanks for any ideas guys!

"speaking piano" reciting the Proclamation of the European Environmental Criminal Court

A "speaking piano" reciting the Proclamation of the European Environmental Criminal Court at World Venice Forum 2009. Austrian composer Peter Ablinger transferred the frequency spectrom of the childs voice to his computer controlled mechanical piano. (translated from German) Peter Ablinger: I break down this phonography, meaning a recording of something the voice, in this case -, in individual pixels, one can say. And if I have the possibility of a rendering in a fairly high resolution (and that I only get with a mechanical piano), then I in fact restore some kind of continuity. Therefore, with a little practice, or help or subtitling, we actually can hear a human voice in a piano sound. link: youtube

Modifying Altec Lancings "Life Jacket 2" Waterproof portable speaker.

So I got one of these portable speakers for work. Works great though it could be a touch louder. It lets you charge your phone while either using Bluetooth or direct aux input. Now there's only one problem/annoyance. Every time you power on/off the device and sync to Bluetooth, this voice confirmation plays this audio file that's much longer than it needs to be. "Powering on! Welcome to Altec Lansing" when Bluetooth kicks on "You are now paired! Enjoy!" when you turn off "Powering off!" Anyway, I was already planning on modding it by adding an amplifier to the Line In, since its much louder when a PC is connected vs a phone. I may also add more 18650's but with 15 hour battery life its not necessary. Unless I plan on turning it into a charging hub for all my co-workers phones or something. Anyway, I am here to try to get some help on disabling the voice, its only really a problem because on max volume the voice is WAYY too loud and usually startles people. Here's a review video that shows all the features. Amazingly I can't find a Youtube video of the Voice Confirmation. Here's the useless manual. Manual I Already emailed Altec Lansing to see if there's anyway to disable the voice. I have several images for you to see. I can grab more if necessary. Alternatively, would I be able to just replace the entire board with another one? Such as, an amplifier, USB charger, 18650 charger, and some hacked up Bluetooth headset (with no voice-confirmation) I ask because I rather like the case for its shock resistance capability, and the control buttons are removable so adding new controls and switches would be easy.

Time/date based portable digital voice recording system? See Collaborations

I’m new to instructables & need input for digital voice recording system for memory impaired people (no short term memory) Need to record real time based voice all day/ everyday in stealth mode. Need time & stamped into recording/ otherwise it is too time-consuming & software intense & $$ to be practical/ which means it will not work. Never working in the past because of hassles with analog tape systems & not time/date linked. Music industry had the newest digital voice recorders w removable memory but not time based & microphones choice is wide range especially w/o experience. Need to search & recall audio files using an appointment type schedule or Day-Timer as a reference. Controls need to be simple on/off, preferably on by default (remember, users r memory impaired & will forget to turn things on). Without time base into original recording, it's hard to delete not needed recording time files. I'm now thinking small camcorders can record higher quality, be time based/ & provide more control, options, etc over regular recording. Brain injuries & dementia cause most memory loss problems. This system is considered adaptive equipment for disabilities. I'm hope instructables has the users with technical background who can help with this project because I'm @ a standstill pulling it together. Anyone with electrical audio engineering background? How many M's r out there? Digital audio combines new stuff from several industries. Mics from music & hearing aids, stealth portable wiring already in mp3 jackets & vests. Anyone interested? I don’t know how collaborations work & this may be the first according to the website? rafdo designs

In the process of hacking the rather cheaply made RS digital voice recorder I bought recently...

Remember the pic of the voice recorder I had in my April Fools entry ? It looked like the first pic below. It uses a cheap speaker for both speaker and mic. The sound from it is less then desirable, but not because of the chip used, but because costs were cut by using the speaker instead of a decent little Electret mic :-( Well, I have started to work on changing this (as it was unusable as it was): I first soldered in a little mic from an old dictation machine (yeah, it used reel tapes) and this helped. But I wanted it to be more under my control, so I added a switch inline to the mic. Now the sound is great, but it is still barely audible, so the next step is to make a 5X or 10X amp for the playback. I might even get ambitious and put a preamp inline with the mic. This I have been working on in my "spare time" and also hope to get a CAKE (torte) entered into the contest on Monday.....busy busy busy :-)

This song drives me crazy!!!

Okay so here's the deal: I downloaded a Coheed and Cambria album off of zune marketplace. Love that album! But one thing, there is this song called "Always & Never". It is very catchy, great guitar... but there is just something about it. Weird background voices/noises, it freaking hypnotizes me!!! Does anyone know if there is a story behind this odd song?If you have never heard the song before go here and tell me what you think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYKZfM-itEUP.S. I know I have said it before.. but there are freaky background voices/noises. Listen for them. It's like giggling, screeching, gibberish baby talk, random words.
