Blog #30 - I need a tutorial for a HK-47 voice filter

Sith Holocron

Going through various Star Wars video games, I've found numerous other sound files performed by Kristoffer Tabori. He voices our favorite homicidal droid from the KOTOR series, HK-47 (and his various "family members".)

 

I'd like to listen to these various sound files and have them sound like HK-47. To be specific: I don't want to hear a filter used in HK-50 or HK-51 lines - just HK-47's filter. I just need to figure what the closest filter settings to the ones used by Bioware and Obsidian are.

 

I have two programs which I use to do sound editing: Goldwave and Audacity. Though I'm more familiar with Goldwave, I'm perfectly willing to use Audacity to achieve my stated goal.

 

Can anyone provide a tutorial to teach me - and likely others that actually read this blog - how to create such a filter?

 

Off-topic: I never thought I would've created 30 entries in this blog. Huh!

 

PS: If you visit this thread, why not post a note of some length explaining what you thought of this entry as well? I always wonder who reads my blathering.

Your best bet to try would be Onderon 501OND. There are a few HK-47 lines wihtout filter there, making perfect testing grounds.

How about this?

 

Filter Test #1

 

The "Before" section has no filter on the lines. The "After" is the first test filter as suggested over on Reddit.

 

 

Setting in Goldwave were the following.

I'm not an audio guy but it sounds amazing to me. I couldn't tell that it's not the official filter.

Hello, I have everything the same in the photo but my voice sounds nothing like HK-47. Is there something I'm missing?

Post a before and after of your voice as a YouTube video so we can all hear the difference. I will check it out when I get home from work.

Perhaps that's because you don't sound like the voice actor for HK.  This is just a filter to add that static that HK has.

 

Presumably, you used the same filter that I illustrated above.  When you listened to that video I posted above - "Testing HK Filters" - did the filtered portion sound like HK-47?  If so, it may be the issue is your acting.

phattdippa, this is like the third time that I've seen you in here. Are the instructions confusing in any way?
