If you always wanted to sound like someone else when making calls in Skype you might find the Skype Voice Changer application handy. The software provides the means to change the voice in Skype but can also alter the voices in mp3 or wav files that get loaded directly into the software. The current release is an experimental release that makes use of filters to alter the voice in Skype in realtime. All that needs to be done is to select one or multiple filters from the list of available ones and press the Connect To Skype button in the top bar.
The program provides access to a dozen filters ranging from Delay and Tremolo to Chorus and 3 Band EQ. While it is not currently able to change the voice in Skype to that of Darth Vader, or any other famous living, dead or fictional celebrity in this regard. Each filter can be configured separately by using the sliders that appear after the selection. The amount and function of the sliders depend on the selected filters. They usually range between 3 and 6 different sliders to change the frequency, length or delay.
Multiple filters can be combined with each other to use all their effects for the voice changing process. Skype Voice Changer is currently available for computer systems running Microsoft Windows. A version of the Microsoft .net Framework seems to be required to run the software although no details are given on the program's homepage.
