My Glados voice changer.

My Glados voice changer.

Postby PelPix » Sun Aug 24, 2008 9:28 pm

So, after a bit of bitching around with custom plugins for audio programs to compare two sets of voices and work with the difference in pitch/timbre/fluidity, I've created a little program adjusted to my own voice that turns it into Ellen Mclain's voice.

Just her voice. Her accent, her vocal attributes, and her fluctuations are all up to how good you are at acting.

Current problems with the setup:
None that I can see

Problems with hardware:
My microphone is the shittiest piece of shit to ever crawl out of a pile of shit.

Here's a sample, the only one I could get any sort of comprehensivity out of. I made it a bit higher to stand above the murky noise-filled shitlands that are my microphone:

This is a little test, with little to none of ellen mclain's vocal querks.

Here it is filtered over with the correct filters. What is at least partly hearable over the noise is promising enough to continue:

I got a professional recording microphone after these, and started making more.

Despite the quality of the microphone, the changer itself still generates a lot of RAW NOISE.

I made a whooshing sound in this one that kind of ruined the filters:

Not much credit should go to the changer itself, I just sound a lot like ellen mclain.
Gee, it sure is 5 in here.

the first two.. you should remove the links to them, they sound like 9 lbs of shit.
but the last two are pretty good. i wouldn't really call them "glados" replicas. but they make some good glados "replacements" very robotic, yet human. close. very good.

Whether it's a replacement or a replica depends on my acting, and I didn't really want to go through 15 takes to get it right.

I CAN get it right after 15 takes though.

The voice clips sounded... okay. But you are right about the first recordings being a piece of bullcrap. After that, it just didn't quite sound GLaDOS-y. Although, it is a good attempt at trying to change your voice into some resemblance of it. Keep tweaking it a bit more, and you might be able to include some of your not-crappy results in a custom map :D

The voice itself is perfect, an exact match in terms of pitch and formant, it's my acting that's not. It still sounds like me because I'm NOT ellen mclain, and my impersonation isn't the best.

Well Pel, I'm still using your old meathod, (involving some text to speech and melodyne filters,) and getting great results. All of my speeches in my map (see my sig!) are custom thanks to you!

I'm willing to bet my voice is closer to Ellen Mclain's than anyone elses here.

I'm certain it is. The biggest issue with my own voice (next to it being male) is that I sound too much like a robot. I just have a boring, monotone voice...
