MorphVOX Junior

Voice chat is booming in online games (not to mention VOIP), but it can be disconcerting when the beautiful elf maiden next to you sounds more like Gimli than Arwen. MorphVOX Junior is a freeware program which will shift your voice to male, female, or 'tiny folks,' improving game immersion as well as increasing your chances of people giving you free stuff because they think you're as hot as your avatar. Well, sort of.

The vocal distortion is well done, but it's not of the same quality as you might see in movies or TV shows. Even with echo suppression turned on, I always had a slight reverb/overlap effect. The selection of voices is also fairly small--a single male, female, or 'tiny folk' morph are all that's included in this free version. The commercial version offers more options.
