    How to Add a Cellphone / Radio effect to your voicesample


    It's very easy to give your (voice-)recording a cellphone or radiolike effect. As usual the instruction is given for the 100% free program Audacity.

    - Select the sample or the sampleparts you want to have the effect layed over.

    - go to Effects -> High Pass Filter

    - at Rolloff (dB per octave): select 12 dB

    - Cutoff frequency keeps to 1000,0.

    - Click OK.

    thats all.

    I you install FFmpeg library into Audacity, it has AMR cell-phone codecs ... http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#How_do_I_download_and_install_the_FFmpeg_Import.2FExport_Library.3F

    If you then save your audio in AMR format it really does sound like a cellphone : it has the compression artifacts , as well as the reduced bandwidth.

    Here is an interesting alternative. A friend of mine was trying to add a phone effect to some vocals in one of his tracks, and could not get it exactly right using plugins.

    I suggested he called his mobile phone from hi s landline (or vice-versa) and recorded the vocals/sentence he was trying to create.
    It worked wonderfully !

    So, yes, you can use VST effect plugins and Audacity effects. But most likely you have access to the real-thing. - Just record it!

    I want to believe.
