Every Cylon Needs a Voice

Post by piRatemaster » Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:21 am

In the process of ordering the suit I've come across a dilemma. Should I buy the $92 MP3 with prerecorded voice lines or instead use Voice Express to rather, record my own lines, and find a way to install that into the helmet?

The most accurate way to make a Cylon voice isn't much of a problem for me. It's just not genuine. On the other hand, 92 bucks is a lot of money on top of what I've already spent!

Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi Buddy,
Take a look here, a lot of people are having great success with this set up and i have one myself, it's a lot to put out but once you have it, it will really add to the experience.

The biggest problem I see with that VT-3 system is a speaker. I'm getting the full 2 grand set, so I'm hoping speakers are preinstalled.

like i said the VT3 route is a viable option but the full set up armor i don't think comes with pre-installed speakers, that part is up to you, what i plan to do is use the Aker amp so that at least i can turn the volume up a bit and hide the speaker on my belt somehow and disguise it.

sorry i can't be much help as i am still in the sanding and filling staged in between building other star wars costumes.

i do not think that there is a lot of people visit these boards much, as a cylon isn't a cheap costume to do in regards to others, so it's just the hard core regs who keep posting.

good luck with your build and i look forward to seeing your pictures.

Regards.

piRatemaster - are you getting a VT3 kit from Kropserkel? I would think it would include a speaker. If not, they are cheap. You could even grab one (or two small ones) out of a junked car. :)

It really comes down to if you want an on-the-fly real-time voice changer for interacting with others at a con. Or if you'll be happy with random MP3 player system. Perhaps in time you could actually have both... no reason you can't have your cake and it too for us Cylons. :twisted:

Ian is right. There are few Cylons... and fewer with voice systems. I hope to soon be the only one with a VISION system - HAHA! *secret plans*

Oh, crap! I totally forgot about this topic, sorry. I am buying the full Kropserkel kit. The big enchilada. Everything. Tried to get Comic-Con tickets too, but no frakking luck there. Comic-Con's too commercial for me anyways.
