New Voicemod PowerPitch technology enables real-time speech hacking in the Metaverse

VALENCIA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Voicemod (www.voicemod.net), the global leader in augmented voice and interactive audio, has introduced a powerful voice pitch shifting technology called PowerPitch enabling highly creative voice shaping in real time with ultra-clear audio quality. PowerPitch technology will not only upgrade Voicemod’s existing voice filters for more realistic sound, but will also be available now and in the future in Voicemod’s UGC audio lab, where it will enable users to create custom voices with previously unimaginable quality and diversity. PowerPitch invites creativity and experimentation in online social interactions for users and their avatars, both inside and outside the metaverse.

Voicemod creates social audio tools that allow anyone 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 distortion, hyper-realistic voice skins, soundboard effects, music effects, user-created speech-on- the-fly vocal changes and a variety of other real-time audio adjustments.

Anyone can take advantage of 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 possibilities for people to imaginatively express themselves as they play, work, create and entertain. With PowerPitch, users can easily adjust their vocal pitch to form a more desirable and accurate voice for their avatars, in real time, without compromising on audio quality or requiring complex audio knowledge.

Speech Hacks

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 working and video calling, PowerPitch not only provides an option for speech enhancement, but also gives professionals added confidence in their speech exchange.

Matching the images to the sound is often seen as the deciding factor in forming a full and believable identity for a character or avatar in the metaverse. Tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) players can mimic 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 part of a truly immersive metaverse experience,” said Voicemod CEO and co-founder Jaime Bosch. “High-quality voice avatars that can be modified in real time will become increasingly important as a complement to 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.

In addition, the new PowerPitch technology is available to B2B and metaverse technology-oriented 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 media and content creation apps, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) targeting gamers, streamers and social communication accessories can reach new levels. user engagement and retention in the metaverse.
