What are voice changers?
Voice changers or voice modulators are devices or software programs capable of changing the tone and formant of an audio signal, which in most cases comes from a microphone. These professional devices can perform this task online, real time or processing an audio file (WAV or MP3) already recorded. It-s common for mic morphers to include sound effects that serve to mask a sound.
The first versions of professional voice changers were small hardware electronic circuits whose purpose was to be used together with a phone intended to disguise. With the passage of time they have begun to use to play phone jokes, play online, to customize the vocal tone in chat tools or to trolling friends and family.
What is a voice changer?
A voice changer can be an app, a software for pc, it can be integrated in a mask (if it is going to be used in a costume, for example) or it works as a toy for children. Voice changers are also considered instruments such as talkbox or vocoder, VST audio effects such as autotune or didgeridoo. In case of being an app this can be available for Windows PC, Android, OSX, iOS or Linux. Some voice changers in the apps are designed to make celebrity voice impersonations.
What voice changers are safe?
It is important to consider the safety of a voice changer before buying it in a store, either physically or online, or installing it on a PC or mobile device.

How do voice changers work?
The operation of a voice changer or transformer is very simple:

- Once the signal is processed, it is sent to the output device (speakers, recording program or headset).

Are voice changers illegal? Can you use a voice changer?
This kind of audio processors to modify the tone and the formant of voice with effects are legal and can be used everywhere. What is not legal is to commit crimes by using a voice modulator for example to scare or bullying someone on social networks, or to disguise the voice to threaten someone in a phone call.
If the goal using a voice changer is to have fun, it is not illegal. If you discover someone who uses software or a voice processing device to commit a crime, you should notify the police as soon as possible to take care of the problem.
And remember there is no bad tool but misuse of this.
Can voice changers be reversed?
At first it is very difficult to reverse the effect that a voice changer applies to a voice. What is possible is to cancel part of the audio processing to be able to clearly identify an audio that has been modified.
For this it is necessary to identify what type of sound effects have been applied to a sample to be able to counteract them using VST plugins or processors in an audio editor. For example, in case the voice sounds with a low tone, you can reverse part of the effect by raising the pitch and applying an EQ in the high frequencies. So you can reverse part of the effect of the voice changer.
