Need help with HK-47 impression

Although I could not add the right effect on the voice over I was wondering how I can sound more like HK-47. Keep in mind I am 14 years old and my voice hasn't broken.

Here I am doing a comparison to the TSL's HK-47 against my own quoting the same lines. I made mistakes :\. Feel free to skip through the mp3 file:

P.S: I am using Audacity, if anyone knows how I can replicate the HK-47 voice effect I would be very happy.

Well, there are plugins, and actually I had been attempting to go this route myself.

I'm twice yer age. :D

I believe what you are looking for is the "green box" radio intercom plugin. I can sorta make myself sound like a number of different characters including HK units. I'd be glad to help any way I could.

I can also imitate sidious and malgus. Maybe Sion if I could just get the accent right.

Thanks! I'll check that plugin out. Can you do an impression of an HK unit so I can take pointers? I feel that since I can't change my physical voice I can at least get his mannerisms and pitch right.

EDIT: Are you sure it's called that? I can't find it anywhere on the internet but I managed to make a kind of radio effect.

Gladly, I'll just pull it up here and make a YT vid...Oh what the ****?

*10 minutes pass, a reload and re-log in later*

Not sure what got changed in my system but I sure haven't done anything to the isn't working anymore for whatever reason. Sorry about this, I'm going to have to resolve it on my own time and I'm a bit preoccupied atm.

IIRC the particular one was some kind of intercom effect panel. Can't remember if it was listed or if I found it independently...

Audacity has a plugins library on its own page.

That should get you started. There are more plugins than are listed in the library, of which I'm sure the folks there (and of course, here) would appreciate being notified.

As to doing the voice, depends on your pitch and voice range. Suppose you could post up a YT clip of your best attempt and I could try to tell you how close I think you are (or aren't) to it.

There is a clip of the same actor doing the voice for HK-47 once again for SWTOR.

My voice is midrange, somewhat on the deeper end.

Thanks for replying. Did you see the download link on the original post? It should work. I find it a better alternative to YouTube videos seeing as its only audio.

But I'll see what I can do to improving it.

Just checked out the intercom effect, but couldn't really find anything like you said. I'm sure it goes under a different name but I did find a tutorial for phone/radio effect but like I said that's still not the desired effect :\.

Hopefully you can resolve that issue, take your time if you need to. Also I couldn't find Kris Tabori recording the lines for swtor either :\.
