Voice Candy

1.5.1
10 February 2011

Recorder with 8 different effects; discontinued.

Overview

Voice Candy is a fun and useful recorder for the Mac. It does for the microphone what Apple's Photo Booth does for the webcam. Voice Candy makes recording enjoyable by providing eight different effects, such as Vader and Chipmunk, to alter the speaker's voice. Once you have made the recording, you can use it to set a reminder, send an email, or take it with you on your iPod. You can also extend the capabilities of Voice Candy by writing AppleScripts to integrate with other applications.

Features include:
  • 8 different effects to record with that alters your voice
  • Set a remind with your recording
  • Awakes your Mac from sleep when reminder fires
  • You can snooze the reminder
  • Global shortcut key setting
  • Run as a menu app
  • Email recording
  • Send recording to iTunes
  • Extendable through AppleScript

I downloaded this for free via the Macheist offer and I'm glad I did. Several of the effects are not all that great which makes this app mediocre in my humble opinion. The Old Radio, Phone, Bad Sci-Fi, and Sore Throat should be improved or replaced. Chipmunk and Mouse are good but are too similar. Vadar, Robot, and Mouse are probably the best. I would say if the developer improves on the present offering and adds more voice effects it would be worth buying. Until that happens I suggest prospective buyers download it first and make sure it's what you're willing to pay for.

Works PERFECTLY under Mavericks (10.9.2) My only complaint is the use of the oddball .mov format for saved files. All attempts at converting the resultant files to .mp3 fail.

I downloaded this From MacHeist too! The license disappeared from MacHeist as they were doing a house cleaning getting rid of old applications. I was willing to buy a license fot this app but it will not launch in Mavericks. I have to trash it. It is a fun application.

Very nice application, it reminds me Audio Fun Machine on my Atari Falcon 15 years ago... It would be nice to have a "Preview" (or "Pre-ear" ;) ) button, as if you only want to play with the effects you need to press the record button, even if you do not need any recording at all. An option to change effect settings (pitch height, echo delay, lowpass/hipass values, etc..) could be a great feature as well.

Voice Candy has a major design flaw - if you record an audio file and then quit without saving it, the file is lost. This happened to me after recording an important interview and being interrupted - I did not for a moment consider that the software would allow me to quit is without a) saving the file anyway, or b) without giving me the option to save it before I quit. So nice little bit if software for playing with - but not for serious work.

Not to mention that passing out a 1 star rating just because the app is missing a single safeguard is unreasonable at best.

Of the 8 predefined voice effects, only 3 or 4 of them make for more or less interesting selections, IMO. Why not give Voice Candy the capability for the user to customize his/her voice according to an unlimited range of variables. As it stands now, I'm really not impressed.

I would buy this if it could also synthesize a Parrot's voice. Anyone know where I can get Parrot speech for MAC OS X? EC

Note to the developer: I just clicked the download link and it made Firefox completely unusable because it started downloading it as text into the browser window, which slowed Firefox down to a crawl! What's worse is it's not easy to figure out the complete download path until you've clicked the download link. If you will add the following to your apache configuration (you can do this in a .htaccess file), your downloads don't appear as text in web browser windows: AddType application/octet-stream dmg More info here: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20040211102018600

Thank you for pointing this out. We switched to a different web host very recently and this escaped us. It has been fixed.
