Skype Voice Changer 3.0

"Change and record your voice in Skype call."

Overview

AthTek Skype Voice Changer will guarantee a good laugh during your Skype calls. It changes your voice pitch to be like a male or female voice and even includes sound emoticons to use during your sessions. You can also record your calls just with just one click, in case you want to listen to them later or share them with friends.

Installation

Installation finishes without problems in only a few moments since it doesn’t consist of many steps, and the installer is relatively small. No 3rd party software is included (e.g. toolbars) and neither does it contain any sort of malware.

It can run under Windows XP (SP2 or later), Vista and 7 and has no special requirements to work.

Interface

The interface is common, but nice nonetheless. It has a pane on the left with 4 buttons and each one changes the content in the main area of the window. The first one is “Change voice”, where you can pick the desired voice. The second category is “Audio setting”, and the third one is “Record setting”. The last one is the “About” category.

In the toolbar menus you will find many other miscellaneous functions of the program.

Pros

There are 4 different voice styles for you to choose from: male voice, female voice, cat voice and dinosaur voice. Moving the slider to any of those will automatically change your voice. You can further tease your contacts by sending them sound effects directly from within Voice Changer, most of which can be downloaded from the product’s website.

The calls you make can all be recorded and played at a later time, plus you have the option to save your voice in a separate file from the contact’s voice. After you have finished recording, you have the ability to convert the output format of the recording into MP3, WMA, FLAC and OGG.

Cons

Sometimes, only half of the phrases you said would be changed and the rest would not even be picked up by the microphone. Also, when a call is made, the program would crash for a while, although this could probably be resolved with bigger RAM capacity and stronger CPU.

As for the limitations on the free version of Voice Changer, the only voice that you can change to is Cat’s voice, and that’s only for one minute per call. Moreover, you can send up to 3 sounds in every call.

Alternatives

AV Voice Changer Software (paid) is used to change your voice in online games (such as World of Warcraft, EVE Online, Second Life, Lord of the Rings Online, Everquest, Counter-Strike, Battlefield 2 and others) and instant messaging programs (like Skype, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, XFire, AIM, GoogleTalk, Teamspeak, etc.). It has many features that make a live chat session more enjoyable, for example background sounds, sound effects, voice mimicker, voice analyzer, and many more. Compared to Athtek Voice Changer for Skype it has many more capabilities, but is heavier and needs more system resources. MorphVOX Junior (paid) is another voice changing software that supports many online games and instant messaging applications, with many built-in voices and sounds.

Conclusion

If you’re going for a hilarious chat with your friends, Skype Voice Changer will be the only tool you’re going to need. Go ahead and test it with your friends, the results will be priceless.
