Mouse voice

Hi

Would you know an ABLETON LIVE FX, or a M4L device that would allow me to get a voice style like a mouse voice in cartoons (without falling into exaggeration)?

Thanks so much
Best regards
Denis

…why not just record the audio and pitch it up? That’s what the studios have been doing for more than half a century. Do you need it to happen in realtime? If so, then a pitchshifter is in order – maxforlive.com has a few – both under “pitch shifter” and “pitchshifter”, for some reason.

Hi WETTERBERG
Thanks so much for answering

I need to do it in realtime indeed.
So I’m going to look for a pitch shifter in maxforlive.com ; thank you ;-)
By the way (sorry, I’m a begginer)… in which folder placing M4L devices (I have a Mac Book and Snow Leopard, Max 5 and LIVE 8) ???

And…. which object can I use in Max to create a pitch shifter ? —> gizmo ? Anything else ?

Best regards
Denis

Real Mickey Mousing (it’s actually called that) is a time-based effect, so you’ll probably get more authentic results using the classic delay line method than you would with gizmo.
Have a look at http://msp.ucsd.edu/techniques/latest/book-html/node125.html which shows a PD version, which is pretty straightforward to translate into Max – just substitute a tapin-tapout pair for vd~ and a pong~ for wrap~,
Cheers

And Sam Tarakajian (among others) has shown how to implement this in Max:

(feels like I post this link every month!!)
