Dehumaniser is a prototype application that transforms voice into monster sounds in real time. It has already been used by acknowledged sound professionals in the film and video game industry.

There are several presets, which create different creature sound effects that are applied to the voice. Additionally the user can create new presets.

By pressing record the program records the output and the input at the same time with the name of the chosen preset inside the program, the user can record the dry signal of the voice and use it again as an input. There are several parameters that affect the sound and two modes for controlling these parameters, a simple mode and an advanced mode.

Additionally, Dehumaniser has the option to use a microphone as an input or a prerecorded sound file. Thus, the user can play a recorded voice on a loop and adjust the settings while listening in order to achieve the desired result.

You can use it within a DAW by downloading soundflower for Mac or jackaudio for Windows.

It has been used for the ABC’s series 666 Park Avenue, for the video games Kingdom Rush: Frontiers Dragon Commander & Divinity Original Sins and many other feature films and video games.

Very cool, and a great example of Max in the industry, which is always great to show students.

I think the link in the main part got messed up by the forum software; it’s linking back to this page.
