Screaming Bee MorphVOX Pro

Screaming Bee has released MorphVOX Pro 4.0, an application for high-quality voice modification to online games, instant messaging, and the multimedia studio.

The new version sports an enhanced professional user interface, extended file format support and an extensible plug-in architecture.

“MorphVOX Pro again sets the standards for voice-changing software,” explains Mark Ramirez, CEO of Screaming Bee. He adds, “The new user interface will greatly improve productivity through ease-of-use and better accessibility. We’ve also added an assortment of features such as extended file-format support, easy management of voices, and the ability to add professional-grade plug-ins to the application.”

Changes in MorphVOX Pro 4.0

  • Completely redesigned user interface with user-accessibility in mind. The all-in-one graphics interface simplifies the workflow for voice manipulation. The “Studio Mode” setting puts all the major voice controls in a single resizable window, boosting user productivity.
  • Import many more file formats, including Wave (.wav), Ogg Vorbis (.ogg), MP3 (.mp3), and Windows Media Formats (.wma).
  • Add professional-grade plug-in applications to the program. This includes the recently released Batch Converter Plug-in that allows morphing of multiple files at one time. Future modules can be added to MorphVOX Pro using the same plug-in architecture.
  • Better management of the growing list of voices and sound effects with the Add-On Manager and Favorites Lists. Users can also back up all settings in MorphVOX to a single file, providing data security and archiving capabilities.

MorphVOX Pro Voice Changer is available for Windows PC and costs $39.95 USD. A demo version can be downloaded from the product page.

Pownce Is Not Twitter, Nor Is It As Important As Twitter

I must admit I’m not with it when it comes new services like Pownce and Twitter, so it’s nice to see Tony Hung (Deep Jive Interests) talk about these in a little more detail.

Twitter and Pownce

Tony writes:

Pownce is an web-based instant messaging system that can be used ex-browser if you download the Adobe Integrated Runtime. Oh. Its wrapped up in a pretty slick package, and you can send group messages. That’s pretty much it.

It shouldn’t be confused with services like Twitter, which are really continuous partial attention services, or something that I’ve described as ambient broadcasting.

Read the article to find out more on how Pownce differs from Twitter.

Availabot tells you when your IM buddy is online

Availabot IM notification

Availabot is a physical representation of presence in Instant Messenger applications. Availabot plugs into your computer by USB, stands to attention when your chat buddy comes online, and falls down when they go away. It’s a presence-aware, peripheral-vision USB toy… and because the puppets are made in small numbers on a rapid-prototyping machine, it can look just like you.

Great idea!

You can have as many Availabots as your system has USB ports.
Currently it only works on iChat on Mac OS X 10.4 but they’re looking into extending it to simular apps on the Mac and possibly Windows in the future.

Check Availabot @ Schulze and Webb for more information. A video of Availabot in action is available as well.
