What will you find in the Voice Marketplace?
Creative professionals often need to quickly create content in many voices using a single source actor, but the precise identity of the target voices might not matter. Think loop groups, walla, minor characters.
It’s a bit like the difference between needing a movie star and needing a good character actor.
To serve this need, we decided to complement our existing bespoke voice cloning service with a Voice Marketplace, where you can pick from a menu of pre-existing target voices. Initially, these will be what we call sui generis voices.
This means that the voices do not belong to any particular person, but are produced by combining characteristics of the voices of many people.
Here are some examples of voices you may find in the Voice Marketplace (exact voices subject to change).
How does the Voice Marketplace work?
Quickly create content in many voices using a single source actor in cases when the precise identity of the target voices is not that important.
You supply a sample of the source voice you want to use
We currently require 30-60 minutes.
We adapt our system to work with the new source voice
Stand by while our computers crunch numbers.
Make recordings and get conversions to the target voices of your choice
Our web-based tool lets you record or upload voice recordings and receive conversions to the target voices of your choice. Turnaround time is a few seconds to a few minutes.
In the future, we will add more sui generis voices as well as cloned voices of real people that we will license. We are working to license voices from both the present day and the past.
With cloned voices, there may be an additional step to ensure your specific use is approved by the voice owner.
