    That's a good idea. I don't have any voice altering equipment and software though. I will look to see what I can find and how much it costs and if it doesn't break my bank I will do it. I will also have to get the OK from Tricia.

    I can't make any promises though.

    LOL! I am a Woman.

    Thanks for your words of encouragement!
    I always suspected that there's some weird collusion going on between Dwntwnslim and quietgirl. They both like eachother all the time

    You're a natural Dwntwn, always thoughtful and very knowledgeable. You will all be great - good choice - posters with interesting perspectives. Thanks Tricia!

    I kinda figured that after the nail polish posts.

    You don't have a thing to be nervous about, Slim, because you know your stuff. All of you LISK-meisters do. I can't wait to hear you hash it out Sunday night.

    There is an all-in-one app for both changing one's voice and spoofing one's caller ID for JB iPhones ( link ). Or one could download the free voice changer app for the iPhone ( link ). Then, simply sign up for a throw away google voice acct, pick an LI exchange, install google voice on their phone, and call from there, while using the free iPhone voice changer. All for the cost of USD$0

    Even so, voice altering software/equipment, can only take a person so far. That is, it alters the tone, pitch, and can even add distortion. It however is unable to mask unique annunciations and pronunciations, or the metre, for that matter. In other words, people's vocal signatures are unique and tough to truly mask.

    Good idea if I had an iPhone. I don't have a Mac either.

    Also, I've never run or used voice altering software/equipment. If I find something I can use, I'm going to have to play around with it to make sure I know how to use it properly. I will also have to make sure the software will even run on any of the machines I have.

    I'm still not sure if I have the time to do all of this in addition to the other preparation I have to do for the show. I will make an effort, though.

    Imo, it's not really worth the effort. Even if the unsub used such software to mask his voice between callers, he would not be able to mask dialect, etc. Besides, imo, the caller is someone who would want his victims to remember him, not some synthetic voice.

    Eta ~ the only worth I could see from such an exercise is to let listeners hear altered and unaltered convos to demonstrate how this software actually works, and how it is so not like TV.

    The quality of software available to change one's voice varies. Some of the good stuff is quite expensive. I don't have access to that kind of software.

    There is also software available (also spendy) that allows a person to record a voice that is not their own. This requires a large sample of that person's voice. A person can use that recorded voice in real time for deceptive purposes. I don't have access to that kind of software either.

    Right. For operative types. Highly doubtful that this guy works (or worked) for a TLA org. Not that someone who works (or worked) for, say, the CIA, would necessarily be above such proclivities. Just that if you're looking at that sort, they would have better covered their tracks. Moreover, their psychological makeup does not really fit the murders.
