Audacity Robot Voice

Audacity is not only suitable for recording your own voice, but also, for example, if you want to change the pitch. We have already recorded a tutorial for this in the past. An interesting possibility for editing is also to create a robot voice in Audacity. For this, only a few settings are necessary to create a robot voice from your voice in Audacity. Of course, it always depends a little on your own voice and your requirements. Therefore, try out a little bit and take our given values as a help, but in no case as absolute, unchangeable values. By the way, this is generally a good tip in Audacity. Trying out functions and values expands your experience with the program and, in some cases, leads to very interesting results by chance.

Can I also create the voice of GLaDOS from Portal?

That is certainly possible. However, this is different from simply creating any Audacity computer voice or having to work with a model. With GLaDOS, it is not only the sound and the pitch that are important, but also the appropriate, droning pronunciation. We are currently working on a tutorial for the appropriate implementation and will link it here as soon as it is ready.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Record your voice in Audacity
  • Mark the track with a double click and copy it with CTRL + C
  • Go to “Tracks” -> “Add New” -> Stereo track
  • Paste the copy with CTRL + V
  • Keep the copied track as marked and click on “Echo” under “Effect
  • Set the delay to 0.04 and the attenuation to 0.6
  • Go back to “Effect” (the track is still marked) and “Change Pitch”
  • Set the change to -10% (variable according to your ideas)
  • Make another copy of the first track (repeat steps 2-4)
  • Under “Effect” select “Change Tempo” and set the value for Change to something between -2 and -5
  • Note: Changing the tempo is only worthwhile for shorter sections, as in the long run the offset will become very large. If in doubt, always edit for smaller sections
  • Now select the first audio track and go to “Effect” and “Change Pitch”
  • Set the value to +10% this time
  • Done!

As you can see, it’s not difficult to create a robot voice inAudacity. And by using different settings you can always get different results. Even an inverted reverb (which comes before the voice) can sound interesting and create a very special characteristic. The possibilities are endless. We wish you a lot of fun with your projects!
