  • Is this possible? Replace your leadvox with the timbres of another singer?

    I wonder if this can be done....     Replacing your solo leadvox on a track with some software algorithm that transforms your voice recognizably  into the vocal timbre of another singer?

    Thoughts?   If not,  I expect it's in the pipeline...

    Well, if I speed up the pitch a little bit without changing tempo, I end up sounding like Bart Simpson. And if I slow down the pitch without changing tempo, I sound more like Morgan Freeman. But that's about as far as it goes.



    However, think about the Variax for a second...it's able to transform the sound of a string to the sound of a different string. Can something similar for voice be far away? I don't know. Don't forget that part of a voice's distinctive characteristics is unpitched sounds, so I'm not sure what an algorithm would do with that. Pitch correction algorithms sure seem to have a hard time with the concept.

    Simplicity, my new album project, is now streamable from my YouTube channel.

      If this sort of thing became available and it actually sounded 'good', I'd probably start recording using computer software

      My singing voice is the one thing above all others that I don't like, hence I double-track it and add effects

    You can change the timbre of for example a male singer into a female singer with the Pitch Tool and Formant Tool in Celemony's Melodyne Editor.

     

    For the Formant Tool there is no video manual made yet:

    but may watch the videos:
