VALENCIA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Voicemod (www.voicemod.net), the world leader in augmented voice and interactive audio, has introduced a powerful voice pitch shifting technology called PowerPitch which enables extremely creative voice shaping in real time and with ultra-crisp audio quality. PowerPitch technology will not only upgrade Voicemod’s existing vocal filters for more realistic sound, but is also available in Voicemod’s UGC audio lab now and in the future, where it will allow users to create custom voices with a previously unimaginable quality and diversity. PowerPitch invites creativity and experimentation into online social interactions for users and their avatars, both in and out of the metaverse.
Voicemod creates social audio tools that allow everyone to easily create and control their own sound identity in the metaverse. People using Voicemod can share the voices they feel best to reveal their true selves, the way they want to be heard, through a mix of voice filters, voice morphing, hyper-realistic voice skins, soundboard effects, music effects, user-created speech-on-the-fly vocal changes, and a variety of other real-time audio customizations.
Anyone can benefit from Voicemod’s hands-on approach to voice customization to easily hack their own voice and sound the way they think it should sound. Deceptively simple, Voicemod’s robust new PowerPitch technology unlocks a hidden plethora of creative opportunities for people to express themselves imaginatively as they play, work, create and entertain. PowerPitch allows users to easily adjust their vocal pitch to shape a more desirable and accurate voice for their avatars, in real time, without sacrificing audio quality, and without needing complex audio knowledge to do so.
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), approximately 7.5 million people in the United States suffer from voice disorders, which can cause problems with pitch, volume, and quality. In the new era of remote work and video calling, PowerPitch not only provides a voice enhancement option, but also gives professionals extra confidence in their voice exchanges.
Matching the visuals appropriately with the sound is often seen as the deciding factor in forming a fully fledged and believable identity for a character or avatar in the metaverse. Tabletop Role Playing Game (TTRPG) players can impersonate dozens of characters per session. With PowerPitch, Voicemod aims to give players, creators, and developers more creative freedom to avoid mismatched visual and voice avatars for a more engaging immersive experience.
“Interactive audio is often overlooked as an essential component of a truly immersive metaverse experience,” said Voicemod CEO and co-founder Jaime Bosch. “High-quality voice avatars that can be customized in real time will become increasingly essential to complement visual avatars in commercial and entertainment metaverse environments. Voicemod PowerPitch enables a winning solution for creating unique sound identities for gamers, creators, professionals and businesses.
Additionally, the new PowerPitch technology is available for B2B and metaverse tech-focused businesses through the dedicated Voicemod Development Kit site enabling the first major evolution of in-game and in-app voice chat. By making voice chat even more immersive, entertaining and inclusive, game studios and developers of social and content creation apps, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) targeting gamers, streamers and social communication accessories, will be able to reach new levels. engagement and retention of users in the metaverse.
