Voice editor software can refer to a number of different types of software programs that allow for the editing, manipulation, and altering of voice and voice recordings. These types of programs can be freeware available for free download and use or professional software that requires purchase and licensing for continued use. Voice editor software allows a user to create vocal recordings through a computer, access those recordings to edit and manipulate them in a number of ways, and potentially export those recordings into a single audio file for use in other applications such as video editing or video game design and composition.
A number of different industries and home users can use voice editor software to achieve different effects and purposes, depending on the application such programs are needed for. One of the most common uses of such programs is to edit voice files into a longer vocal performance. This is often done for recorded spoken audio as well as musical compositions that include vocal performances such as singing. Voice editor software will usually display audio information in a visible wave pattern, to allow easier copying, cutting, pasting, and other types of manipulation through a graphical user interface.
By using voice editor software, shorter recordings or various parts of longer recordings can be separated and pieced together to create a new composition. This can be done to assemble different audio clips into a single monologue or dialogue, as well as to take different elements from numerous recordings and assemble them into a single, seamless creation. Such editing is often done in the music industry to create a single vocal track using various takes and performances to capture the best possible performance by pulling out the best parts of each recording. Voice editor software can also be used to alter a vocal recording or vocal input in a number of ways.
Some types of voice editor software are programs that allow manipulation of vocal information to make a voice sound like a different person. This can be done to create more dynamic or varied recorded vocal performances for use in movies, television, radio, or video games. Some programs can even change a person’s voice in real time to allow a person to talk on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services, in video game chat programs, and other types of person-to-person communication. This is often done simply to have fun, though it can also be used to disguise a person’s identity or gender.
