|SciFi Deluxe Plugin Online Help
For CoolEdit Pro/2000
The Deepenator tab in the SciFi Plugin allows you to pitch scale your
voice into a monster, radio personality, or helmeted villian. This type
of effect has been used in many different movies in varying degrees.
Some examples where this effect has been used are from: Star Wars, the
Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, True Lies, and many others.
Below is the Deepenator dialog tab and following are descriptions of
the controls. Click on the image for help on the respective sections:
Channel Controls (for right and left channels)
The SciFi deepenator is a stereo process, meaning that the left and
right channels are analyzed independently. There are controls for right
and left channels, respectively.
Reverb Delay Slider:
Sets the delay, in milliseconds, of the reverb applied to your
voice. Increasing this value will add a longer reverb time, resulting
in longer delayed echoes of your voice. Both left and right channels
have independent controls.
Reverb Power Slider:
Sets the strength of the reverb applied to your voice. Increasing
this value will increase the intensity of the reverb. Both left and
right channels have independent controls.
Comb Delay Slider:
Sets the delay, in milliseconds, of the echo to your voice.
Increasing this value adds more echo. When used in conjunction with
the Reverb Delay Slider, you can
emulate differing helmeted effects and sizes. Both left and right
channels have independent controls.
Sets the amount of pitch scaling applied to your voice, determined
in half steps of an octave (there are 12 half steps in an octave). A
value of 0 corresponds to no shift. A value of -12 corresponds to
shifting your voice down one octave. A value of 12 corresponds to
shifting your voice up one octave. You can emulate lowering your
voice by setting the pitch scaler negative. You can raise your pitch
of your voice by setting the pitch scalar positive. Both left and
right channels have independent controls, so you can apply different
pitch scalers to each channel.
These controls provide some randomization of some parameters to
create interesting effects.
When enabled, selects a new random Pitch
Scaler for each block of data. The new pitch scaler is selected
within a range of the specified value from the
Pitch Scaler Slider. Thus, if you selected to lower the pitch of
your voice, the new random pitch scaler will most likely be negative
values, so the speech cannot jump from low pitch to high pitch
instantaneously. This is applied to both channels.
When enabled, selects a new Reverb
Delay value for each block of data. The new reverb delay will be
less than or equal to the value specified in the
Reverb Delay Slider. This is
applied to both channels.
The included presets demonstrate many of the functions of the
sliders and some commonly used effects. Please try them out, the best
way to find cool effects is to experiment with the controls.
