Cloned Cube is a Portal mod. It takes place after GLaDOS' fall in Portal. You assume the role of Chell's secret clone. You have to escape or else you may just be tested to death. There is one obstacle. CUBiS is trying to kill you.
What do you think of her tone? CUBiS is the main antagonist in Cloned Cube. (Meaning she is the villain or basically a replacement of GLaDOS) Decide on what you think of her voice.

I've had some trouble with CUBiS's voice. Just in case you didn't know CUBiS is basically our version of GLaDOS. We wanted to create a voice that didn't sound exactly like GLaDOS. We couldn't afford Melodyne and we're not pirates so we tried some creative solutions. Here is our first attempt:
Take note that I used Melodyne for this voice when I had the trial (but now I'd have to clear some registry keys to install the trial again so I won't do it). After the trial finished, I decided that I wanted to purchase Melodyne Assistant which would be the lowest cost item that could do pitch modulation and the effects for GLaDOS's voice. Then I realized it wasn't worth $100+ program to make just one voice for the game. I looked up opportunities for a free way to get such voice. I tried vocoding in Audacity but then one weekend I stumbled upon G-Snap and Wavosaur after some tweaking after watching a video on autotuning with G-Snap and some final vocoding, I came up with this:
So, what do you think of this voice? Is it good because it sounds good in-game which I'll be sharing soon.
Well, first I did the Wavosaur effect that I show in the video below, then I ran the sound file through Audacity with a Vocoder effect (that unfortunately refused to work on video). And voila! The effect is seen in-game.

What do you think? Should I put Melodyne Assistant on my Christmas List or stick with Wavosaur?
