On the main panel, click on the Comparator button to open VCSD Comparator.
- In the Voice section, click the Add
button to open the Voice Impor
- Click on the Browse
button and select the Barack Obama's original voice file.
- In the Person
textbox, type the name for the voice as "Barack Obama"
- Type what he says in the voice file into the Phrase
field: "We were founded upon the ideal that all are created equal."
- Click the Import
button to finish the import process of the new sample voice. The Voice Import dialog box will be closed.
The newly added sample voice will be set for the comparator automatically (see Fig. 3).
Note: To re-listen to the new sample voice, click the Play (1) button.
- In the Record section, click the Rec (2) button to start recording your voice. Try to mimic Mr. Obama's voice over the tone, speed, rhythm and volume.
: The quality of the final result also depends on how you mimic the sample voice in this step.Note
: If you receive an error message saying that "Cannot make comparison. Please, try to record your voice again," it might because you spoke too low or too fast that VCS Comparator couldn't detect the voice. Close the message and record your voice again.
- If the record of your voice is qualified, VCS Comparator will make the comparing automatically, then suggest the best settings in Pitch, Timbre & Adv. Tune that make your voice sound most alike to the sample of Mr. Obama's voice.
- Click OK
to close the Comparator and return to the main panel. The suggested settings will be applied to the Voice Morpher module.
Now you can speak to the microphone to check if the changed voice is what you want or not. If you are satisfied with it, you've done, you can save it as a nickvoice file for later use. If you are not, try adjusting slightly the pitch and timbre (using the Voice Morpher graph) to see if you can get a better result. You may also want to apply advanced effects to make the result voice sound better, we have a simple instruction on that in step 4, and 5.
Tip: You can use the Timbre, Pitch and Adv. Tune sliders in the Morpher module (3) of VCS Comparator to manually change your original record voice to what you think is alike to the sample voice yourself, then click the Compare (4) button to get the comparison result. However, it is recommended you follow our instructions above.

: In most cases, the equalizer preset works well. But if it does not, try the other ones or load your own settings. You can also make changes on the preset when it is loaded in the Equalizer
tab. If you don't like the effects at all, click the On/Off
button on the tab to turn if off.
If you feel that the output voice has background noise, follow this step to eliminate them. But firstly, you are recommended to save your current morphing settings, click the Save button on the Voice Morpher module on the main panel to save them. The saved file will keep all the settings that are being applied in VCS.
