Yes and no - there is no tool that does this fully automatic - you have to set up and tweak the chain your self, but once you're done it can be used with any input (i.e. "live"). (tl;dr: good impersonation -> pitch-shift w. formant control -> matching eq) Details Like you suggest yourself in one of the comments, you have to use a mix of both a good pitch ...

There are different aspects in "the Mickey Mouse voice (effect)": One is the relatively high general pitch of the voice. Mickey has always been spoken by a man, but the speakers voice's pitch or frequency (called 'F0') has always been at the level of a higher woman's or a child's voice. So, there is generally two possible ways to achieve that: a) if ...

Have you considered flex-pitch in a product like Logic X? I don't do music and therefore haven't used it a lot, but you can make some interesting effects with it. You record the phrase in your normal voice, then use pitch correction to change the note and octave to your liking. It seems like you have a decent ear for what makes the Mickey voice (high ...

A couple beautiful plugins for achieving this effect that are fun to even use in tandem for a richer warble: https://www.xlnaudio.com/products/effect/rc-20_retro_color http://www.psychicmodulation.com/echomelt.html I endorse both enthusiastically! And if you want some more grit and hiss, add TB ReelBus to your arsenal. It's designed to simulate magnetic ...

Hi, I could well be wrong, but it sounds like this sound is created by a couple of synthesisers. There is the initial impact, followed by a wave lowering in pitch with the lfo slowing down. Then there is a choir style pad coming in and raising in volume at the end and the wind style one too. I would go about this using plugin synthesisers and layer it up- ...

That particular effect is quite simple to do. As I don't know you (that I know of), I'm gonna assume you see the initial hit as a part of the sound your looking for, but not the choir at the end. That hit is part of the soundbanks of my Roland SPD-20 drumpad-set actually. Don't know what it's named as I don't know where my manual is and the settings is made ...

Ok, so I think I understand the problem now. When you control the pitch with the LFO you're controlling it directly with a signal which (operating at signal rate) has a massive range and resolution, so it can control the pitch very precisely. When you use the pitch-bend wheel or write any automation in Pro Tools you are essentially writing in MIDI ...

Sounds like you're looking for an arpeggiator. With some plugins, you can either program a step-sequenced arpeggio, which triggers on a MIDI note event. These will mostly be atonal/chromatic, and won't necessarily adhere to any scales that you're using. There may be some that have this intelligence however.

In the most basic form of pitch-shifting, we play a sample faster or slower. This has some side effects along with the desired pitch shifting - the duration and the formant of the sound are also shifted. In your case, like Thomas already mentioned, it is the shifted formant that causes the squeakiness. A formant is formed by the resonances inside a ...

For what it's worth, Adobe announced a tool (Project Voco) at Adobe Max last year that goes way beyond the typical 'voice changer' apps and EQ setups. It can literally change one voice into another with a sufficient sample of the desired voice. Scary and potentially very useful. But mostly scary (-:

I am no expert, but could your guitar have been tuned to Just temperament, instead of Equal temperament? Correct me if I am wrong, but if one tunes the guitar by the ear, it does not necessarily sound completely in-tune from all chords? One does need to use tuning meters to check nice tuning against equal temperament instruments (like pianos or more ...

Binaural Beats is a psychoacoustic phenomenon that occurs between 2 frequencies as perceived in a binaural space. To contrast - in a piece of music, you are listening to not only infinite number of frequencies, but those frequencies are inconsistent and change with song structure. To create binaural beats in a song, every frequency will require a new ...

You should also check out Nuendo, Cubase and Pootools. They all have variable time/pitch stretching capabilities.

The Adobe Audition Pitch Shifter, Pitch Bender or Stretch and Pitch effects will not let you shift all notes in your audio track by 5.5Hz. Instead, it allows you to shift in tonal increments, such as semi-tones, cents or by ratio. What this means is that different frequencies will be shifted by different amounts. As an example using a Ratio of 2 would shift ...

A pedal does one thing well. It doesn't care what audio you put into it, it'll do its thing regardless. As long as the signal is not too loud, you should be fine. Certain frequencies may sound better (hence why they make certain pedals specific to bass guitar), but generally (if it's a decent pedal) the actual tone of the incoming signal should not be ...

Like said in the comments, the fist thing to do is to separate the frequencies we want to affect from the rest. This can be done using LPF/HPF combo to form a BPF (I find it easier to set my cutoff frequencies using 2 filters rather than a BPF because with BPFs you have a center frequency and bandwidth (Q) which requires some calculations to figure out the ...

I suspect that most sounds dogs hear are still focused below 20 kHz, with only some extra overtones that reach higher. With humans it's also this way: we only can properly distinguish sounds up to about 8 kHz. Higher frequencies are still well sensible, but they don't carry much useful information for us, mostly just a feeling of openness / clearness / ...

Have a look at Flux IRCAM Trax vocal transformer. It can be used to changed gender and age of the voice. Otherwise you might want to look at Symbolic Sound KYMA. This is a very expensive option however, and you need to find someone who knows how to use it well.

You can use a match EQ to read the EQ curve off of one sound recording and apply it to another. It can be used for example on a compilation album to make all the tracks sound like they were recorded in the same session by applying the EQ curve of one track to all of the other tracks. If you use a match EQ to apply the EQ curve of a recording of Bob to a ...

One of the most common plugins used for voice transformation would be a pitch shifter. You can usually find one included in most DAW software (Logic, ProTools, GarageBand, etc). When used tastefully in small amounts, it can contribute to altering a voice while still sounding somewhat realistic. If you use GarageBand, I know there are some basic vocal presets ...

The difference is that "moving" means relative to the medium through which the waves are traveling. So if the source is moving relative to the medium, the waves actually propagate differently than if the source is stationary relative to the medium. "Notice that in both cases, moving observer and moving source, if the source and observer are moving together, ...

I am not sure sine I haven't tried this, but you can map the cliplauncher to your keyboard. So, if you were to map that together with the semitones, in theory you should be able to pitch way longer than the normal -+48 semitones. this would then work live as well since the cliplauncher is for the track in general, not a set clip. This way you can resample ...

The following assumes the effect really works as you think. I don't actually know! Before you start undoing any pitch-shift you will need to separate the tracks. This can't be done properly with ordinary EQing, but should be rather accomplishable with a comb filter, since speech (at least the parts that respond critically to a pitch-shift) consist mostly of ...

The Sennheiser - MKH series are analog-boost-eq inside the mic preamplifier in order to get an extended frequency response. I used MKH - 8020 @ 192kHz for slowed down fx and I get high frequency noise. Neumann mics don't have this eq boost, the highs may be more natural and less noisy. I don't know for Schoeps and DPA.


1

Sennheiser MKH 8020, 8040, and 8050 record out to around 50kHz. They are outstanding, quiet mics. Schoeps MK capsules with CMC-6 XT bodies record out to 40kHz. Also amazing mics. A little more self noise than the Sennheisers, but they sound great and handle mid range frequencies very well.

The human voice. Channel your inner child and sit in front of a good mic (in a good room) for a bit and make the weirdest sounds you can think of. Roar, moan, cough, flutter your tongue. Put the mic againt your throat...whistle...blow raspberries... Make as much material as possible. Now repeat all of this with a friend of yours who is the opposite gender, ...

I ask that simple question in google "best pitchshift for sound design ?", and finally the first response was this page . Great, but I saw it was in 2010... So What's up in 2013 ? Personnally : Audiosculpt far away (3 octaves makes musical effects not so aliased), but it's not a plugin. Needs more time. Melodyne is incredible for "vocal-like" sounds, and ...
