AV Voice Changer Software can change a user’s voice to any desired output quality regardless of gender and age by changing its Pitch and Timbre. The big nickvoice library and effect library are handy for use.

Voice Changer Software works with Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, and other voice communication applications for online games which then allows Gamers to change their real voice to suit with their characters (electronic voice of a robot, shrill cry of a sorcerer, etc.) and thus, make their games more vivid and exciting.

In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to install, and setup Ventrilo then use Voice Changer Software to do voice change for it.

System Requirements for running Ventrilo in Games online:

  • Run on most machines. CPU utilization by the Ventrilo server is negligible.
  • Good or high upload and download bandwidth capacities due to voice communication.
  • The more concurrent clients connected to a server, the greater the bandwidth utilization.

Ventrilo is composed of two different components:

  • The client application: This is the primary user interface which must be downloaded and used by gamers.
  • The server application: The system run by the Game's provider, all clients must connect to it in order to communicate with other people.

Ventrilo is supported somehow differently in different platforms. So, it is recommended that you should download the appropriate platform version. This tutorial covers the version for Windows.

Both the Client and Server applications of Ventrilo can be downloaded from  here.

Note: Distribution or redistribution of any of these packages requires authorization.
