Reader Andre Redert sends word of Cylon Voice – an iOS app that is designed to do one thing – turn your voice into a Cylon’s:
As fans of the 70’s Battlestar Galactica Cylons, we put all our effort into creating the app “Cylon Voice” for iPhone/iPad. It emulates the analog vintage vocoders (EMS) that were used to create Cylon voices, in real-time.
- Gold and silver voice, in normal, fat and mini style (total of 6 voices)
- Full emulation of analog vintage vocoder (25-bands)
- Stereo, real-time and zero delay/latency
- Live mode (with headphones) and repeat mode (without)
- Engine and eye sound effects
- Sound equalizer (iPhone/iPod 5-bands, iPad 9-bands)
- Sampler: record, play and share your own Cylon voice
- Elegant, intuitive interface, with video demo/instructions
- Works on all devices with iOS4.2 and higher (iPod Touch 2G users need an external microphone)
This isn’t designed to be a full-featured vocoder (and MIDI support is missing in action). But as music toy apps go, Cylon voice looks like fun for anybody of a certain age.
“By your commmand!”
It’s $1.99 in the App Store.
