Treat the sound yourself

Have you ever wanted to change the way your voice sounds without the help of recording software?

How about some audio processing on your own?

We’ve put together a number of tried, tested, and real techniques to do just that! Here are some ideas for how to sound like you’re underwater and sound like you’re on the phone.

Change the tone of your voice

If you’ve ever played a brass instrument such as a trumpet, trombone, or trumpet, some of these ideas will be especially easy for you to implement. All of the following, except for the helium balloon idea.

What does it look like underwater

Fill a bowl with water and speak over the water. Make yourself look like you’re underwater.

Make sure to keep your nose out of the water and you should be fine!

How does it look like you are in a tunnel

Do you have a tube around the house that you can use as an alternative to a tunnel? Speaking in the tube can create a different echo and give you a slight echo .

How do you look like a squirrel

Very small doses of helium, when inhaled, can temporarily change the pitch of your voice. While it does not change your vocal mechanics structurally, it does affect the vibration of your vocal folds. The result is that your voice sounds louder, even louder. Although it may sound elegant or fun, keep in mind that inhaling helium is dangerous. Helium is not oxygen and inhaling it may cause serious medical side effects.

This may be unreasonable but don’t use helium regularly or audition for a long project with the help of helium. Don’t put your health at risk in order to preserve a character in a cartoon or an audiobook.

How to make a train sound

Tin or aluminum foil. Loud sounds sound better than low pitched ones.

Make a robot voice

Use plastic wraps, also known as Saran/Cling wrap. Pull the wrap tight over your mouth and then say your lines with a monotonous connection.

Using a cardboard box

You can try placing a cardboard box over your head (make sure there is enough room to breathe or cut holes in the box for air) and just place the microphone outside the box. If there is a place, try it with the mic inside the box as well and see what happens.

Mute your voice with a blanket

Blankets draped over your head can help make a muffled sound when you speak. 

Try a roll of toilet paper or a roll of tissue paper

Try using empty toilet paper or a tissue roll and see what happens. Since there is no paper on it, you will find that it is easier to use and the sound is better than if you used a roll of paper on it.

Block your nose with nasal sound

If you have the illusion that you are sick, have a congested nose, or have a blocked nose, try to block your nose when you speak. Don’t forget to breathe through your mouth. It looks like me! You can also produce a similar glandular sound without blocking your nose to produce an eccentric nasal sound.

Blur your voice with a hand fan

On a hot day, have you ever cooled off with the help of a small handheld fan? Try to talk close to the fan and hear your voice rocking choppy and jerky. I imagine this as sonic strobe lights. Definitely worth a try!
