Talk:Altered Voice

From This Might Be A Wiki

I'm pretty sure that "Synthesized Voice" is not the correct term here. Speech synthesis is something else entirely, and I don't believe it's been used in any TMBG songs. Since I'm bored at the moment, here's what Robot Parade would sound like: robot-parade.mp3. Very different than a vocoder. — scragz

You're right, I've never heard them use a synthesized voice either. With Robot Parade it's a harmonizer. In Man It's So Loud In Here it's a vocoder.

Mono Puff did once. In Hidden Track (Mono Puff). Besides that, you're right. We should move it to, like, Altered Voice. - Whirrrlwind 15:37, 13 Apr 2006 (CDT)

Anyone else think (I'm unsure) that Cyclops Rock deserves a seat here? During the chorus I think there's a bit of altered voice going on... --Lemita 18:14, 22 May 2006 (CDT)

I don't think so. it's just distortion. --liam 18:16, 22 May 2006 (CDT)
That's still altered. I'm adding it for now. --DoubleDenial (talk) 14:09, 27 April 2019 (EDT)

How about High Five!?  !  ? I can't tell if it's just Beller's falsetto voice multi-tracked. Same with Prevenge and Feign Amnesia. ~ magbatz 17:01, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Isn't there some sort of altered voice on The Secret Life Of Six? The "He acts sunny and funny" and "He announces he bounces" part? I might be wrong... -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

I agree--I think it should be added. --MisterMe 14:16, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

I kinda think Old Pine Box should be in the "Briefly used" section, I mean, it's a short song, but it's still not got buckets of altered voice, right? --ΰΌΊπ„žπ„†β“†β“€β“”β“›βŽˆβ’Ήβ“žβ“œβ“œβ“β“–β“”π„‡ΰΌ» 10:17, 3 March 2012 (EST)

i agree with this notion. -Apollo (colloquia!) 14:32, 3 March 2012 (EST)

Anyone for I've Got A Fang? Just before the instrumental break there's a part where Linnell's voice is slowed way down, and then speeds back up before the final verse. --MisterMe 14:16, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

Good call! ~ magbatz 18:00, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

The "they hear the sound" segment in The Bells Are Ringing: is that altered? I'm not totally sure. ~ magbatz 14:09, 3 March 2014 (EST)

I tried asking Flans on tumblr but he declined to answer...they just posted my original question with the goofy picture I submitted. Sigh. --MisterMe (talk) 11:00, 5 March 2014 (EST)
After a couple more listens I'm leaning towards no. I think it's just a few layers of Linnell having fun doing exaggerated slo-mo-type voices (in a song full of weird twangs). IMO. There's also that reverby effect on the vocals in the bit about the girl with cotton in her ears, but I dunno if that alone would make the vox "altered". ~ magbatz 02:53, 6 March 2014 (EST)
