I want the really low sounding voice from the infamous(2 kids died getting highest scores)... arcade game Berzerk for my robot. I actually have all 30 words from the Mame emulator program but they are all the same tone and pitch normal mid range pitch.The original arcade game was able to vary the pitch up high and low randomly in the game which made the robots sound really evil. I was actually reading the comments from the guy who programmed the game at Stern electronics back in 1980(he chats with everyone on youtube today still) Not sure if he was joking but he said back in 1980 voice synthesis was really new and expensive,his game had 30 words and each word was a separate micro chip that cost $8000.00 each! Berzerk was the first talking arcade machine! Does anyone know if it is possible to change the voice pitch up or down in the windows EZ builder?I did figure out how to add different beeping sounds at different pitches but to do that with the voices would be cool,really love the low deep darth vader pitch from the game!Possibly is there a free voice reader text to speech emulator that could simulate this? The "david" I use now is not good for a robot voice from the windows 10 speech reader. *tired*
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Get access to the latest features and updates with ARC Early Access edition. You'll have everything that's needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Does changing the pitch in Windows speech synthesis settings do anything for you? ARC has a speech synthesis settings control.
have you tried Audacity at all for Ubuntu or Windows?
You can easily control pitch with it.
Not sure if it would suit but its something ive recently looked at so thought maybe it might help?
Type this into your Terminal-
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/audacity
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install audacity
Check this instructables page out, it helped me with my Voltron robot voice
*Edit: @NEWAGETOMY whoops I didn't realize those youtube vids were tutorials, probably explaining the same thing as the instructables page, my bad
I actually bookmarked your link so all good.
Hows Voltron coming along?
Hahaha, it is extremely difficult to find a good voice for your robot isn't it...
I would LOVE to have a HAL 9000 voice for my robot too, it is simply the best at being emotionless and deep at the same time! But I guess although it seems to be fairly easy to produce, it might be as well impossible...it kind of works thru the context, and also the pauses and timing of this voice only character make this Ai one of the best I have ever see in cinematic context!
Or course one of my old school fav's...
http://www.text2speech.org/ It lets you input text and create wav or mp3 files for download. The default male sounds 80's ish to.
The CFS Technologies homepage has up the license key needed to unlock the create a wav file feature. http://www.cfs-technologies.com/home/
I just used it to created some Short Circuit robot sound files because I think the American Voice #1 sounds spot on for the none "alive" Johnny five SAINT robot voices.
Edit----So I tried my old win7 laptop with the Cylonix program and I had CNN news playing on the internet with that Wolf Blitzer reporter in real time it was changing Wolf's voice talking just like a Cylon from that old 70's Galactica tv series! this is too much fun!
