||Vortex 2 Voice Changing Module
Our Vortex 2 voice amp is a programmable sound effects and real-time
voice changing module that allows one to change their voice and play out
high-quality sound effects in a package that can be body worn.
voice amp is capable of producing high-quality voice effects that are
lacking in the mass-produced toys seen on the market today. This device
produces "movie-quality" effects to be used by voice-over enthusiasts,
movie makers, or costuming hobbyists.
This Vortex 2 voice changer also features several innovations not
found in any other voice amp in its class:
- 16-bit CD quality output and DSP technology.
- Stereo output – voice + sound fx on left channel, chorus sound
fx on right channel.
- Push-to-talk mode, enables voice output and disables
external sounds so you can talk at will.
- Auto VOX mode automatically disables external sound fx while
- Digital voice output volume control.
- 6’ remote pushbutton cable to control all the boards features
with a single fingertip
- Tunable onboard voice compressor – compression ratios of 1:1 up
- Compatible with all (Radio Shack) type amplified speakers,
OnTour Ipod speakers, xtremegadget, etc.
- Uses any electret mic – board even supplies phantom mic power.
- Small form factor ideal for body-worn applications: 3.4" x 2.2"
- External sound fx from CD player, MP3 player, etc can be piped
into unit and automatically mixed in with voice output.
The voice board will run off any DC power supply from 6V-18V. A 9V
battery is sufficient to use, but may not last long. Use alkaline
batteries or lithium batteries for added life. You can also use a 6AA
battery pack for extended costuming sessions.

We have many real-time voice transformations that you can choose
from. All you need to do is pick a voice effect with your package!
Below lists a couple example applications we have done in the past.
contact us for more details on the available voice effects.
- Dark Lord voice deepener
This voice effect transforms your voice in real time to sound like a
dark lord - adding helmeted reverb, echo, shifting your voice down
in pitch, and slowing your voice so it replicates the effect heard
in the movies. External breathing sound can be mixed in with voice
- Ironman voice
This voice effect transforms your voice in real time to sound like you are in an ironman robotic suit - adding mechanization and proprietary small-reflection echo. The pitch of the output voice can also be lowered to match the user's expectations. External sounds (like a Jarvis or servo effects) can be mixed in with voice
- Cylo-vocoder voice
This voice amp transforms your voice in real time to sound like a
robotic cylon - doing a full-band vocoder. The pitch of the output voice can be changed. External eye "sweep" sound can be mixed in with voice
- Bounty Hunter voice
- Protocol droid voice
This voice effect tranforms your voice in real time like a protocol droid, adding the correct phasing to accurately reproduce the gold/silver droid movie effect! External servo sounds can be mixed in with the voice using a separate mp3 player.
Available from Radio Shack
