PLEASE help me!  

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I hope I'm posting this in the right place...

First off, THANK YOU, to whoever helps me with this. Idk what to do.


Here's what I'm trying to do...


I wanna make/record prank calls using a voice changer with little to no latency.


More specifically:

1. I wanna use Skype to make the calls.

2. I wanna record the calls. I wanna record BOTH me AND the other person in stereo, not me in one ear, them in the other. Both voices in both ears.

3. I wanna use Morphvox Pro as my voice changer. I like this one because it has a real-time noise reduction tool.

4. I wanna do all this with very little(none, if possible) latency.

How can I do this?


So far, I've been able to do all that except for the latency part. I can voice change, call, record no problem, but my voice lags from the latency, which messes up the call.

I can get rid of the latency using Ableton Live and Asio4all, but I can't records calls then because when Asio is active, I can't use any other sound.


So, what can I do to get around these issues?? Do I need an external soundcard or something? Is there a simple fix somewhere?


Please, guys. HELP ME!

I would greatly appreciate it. smile.gif

I'm not going to offer suggestions, but I AM going to offer a warning.

Prank phone calls, even those that aren't threatening, are illegal in a lot of places.

A quick Google search turned up this thread that specifically spells out the law in Texas. Your state might be different.

Look it up and think before you act.

That is so stupid. It is called called ID and number block folks. If you have to send some one to jail, send the person who is getting upset to jail for being stupid enough to not call the phone company and have the number blocked.

Not saying it isn't a stupid law, just that it is a law.

Do you realize how childish you sound? Do you realize how pathetic your reasoning is? If you fail to put bars on your first floor windows and someone breaks in through the windows, should that absolve the person of wrongdoing? Of course not.

The mods should delete this thread, regardless of whether it's against the TOS or not.

Way too serious for OP wanting to record a Skype voice changer conversation. Is that even classed as a phone call? What are you doing at the moment? There isn't any free multi-client ASIO and I'm not sure there's even any reliable paid for either. Have you tried Virtual Audio Cable? You could probably set up a/some virtual soundcards/repeaters and set the buffers/latency as low as it will go before it skips. It may do better than standard DirectSound.

Finally. Someone actually posting to help. Thank you!


"What are you doing at the moment?" - You mean, what am I doing for my calls? Right now I'm using Skype for making my calls. I'm using Morphvox Pro for changing my voice. I'm using Pamela for Skype to record the calls. All that is working fine, it's just that, there's latency. If I don't use Morphvox, and I just talk through my mic normally, the latency is really low, but when my voice goes through Morphvox, there's latency. So, my sound card is too slow or something? I can change my voice in a DAW or something that allows VST plugins, using a plugin voice changer instead of a program like Morphvox, and then I can use the Asio4all drivers and this gets rid of the latency issue, but then I can't make the calls because when I use asio4all, I can't use anything else. So, basically, I need to know either how to reduce my audio latency so I can use Skype, Morphvox, and Pamela without any latency, or I need to know how to be able to use Asio4all with windows sound at the same time.

By Multi-client Asio, I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but there's a program that I have on my computer right now that's an asio wrapper. Basically, I can run multiple programs at once that use asio4all without them cancelling each other's sound out. The problem is, neither Skype, Morphvox, or Pamela support Asio4all.

No, I haven't tried Virtual Audio Cable. What is it?

Virtual sound cards? I've never heard of doing that. Will that fix my problem? How can I do this?

I haven't used any of that software except ASIO4ALL and it mutes Windows when it's active and there's no way around it, if it's fine until you add MorphVox it sounds like that's the problem. What happens if you use a DAW and VST without ASIO? Do you get the same latency that Morphvox adds?

Virtual Audio Cable makes virtual sound devices/repeaters between devices, they're available to any software and they're more configurable than a normal soundcard (similar to ASIO, you can fix/reduce buffers and lock sample rate/bit depth). You could try for example a repeater from your soundcards mic to a virtual soundcard, then do what you're doing now but using the virtual soundcard, it may be the same or worse but you'd at least get access to the buffers that are unavailable in normal soundcard drivers to try reducing them as far as possible. It's free to try and the one device and unlimited repeaters you get in the trial version would be all you'd need.

Without Asio, in a DAW, the latency is bad. I think my sound card just sucks.

I downloaded VAC and stopped using it withing like 2mins. Holy moly is that confusing. Lol.

You know what, I think I'm just gonna do my pranks with my normal voice and add effects afterwards. This is just too much trouble. I can't believe something like this is such a problem to accomplish. rolleyes.gif
