Sonic Charge Bitspeek
Sonic Charge has launched Bitspeek, an effect plug-in that will make you sound like a robot.
Bitspeek is a real-time pitch-excited linear prediction codec effect. Linear prediction coding is a voice compression technology that appeared in commercial products in the seventies and was implemented in some well-known speaking toys of the early eighties.
Sonic Charge applied this technology to create a VST / AU effect plug-in that analyzes audio, extracts a number of parameters (including pitch, volume and formant data) and then resynthesizes the audio using a simple oscillator, noise and filter architecture.
A number of playback parameters that adjusts the pitch and tonal quality of the sound as well as support for MIDI and a beat-synchronized "formant freezing effect" have been added.
Pricing & Availability
It costs $29. It's available for Windows and Mac OS X (Intel) in VST and AU effect plug-in formats.
