How to alter a voice recording to enhance age or pitch

Does anyone know of any software that will take a voice reording and "age" it (i.e. make it sound like it came from an older person). Also, same thing with pitch. Can you recommend anything that would change a Soprano into an Alto?

Either way, I want something that sounds realistic.

Thanks...

I use a program called Cool Edit 2000 which I'm sure can do what you want. But I believe it's been purchased by Adobe and renamed as Adobe Audition. It's also rather expensive. I'm sure there are cheaper software solutions.

I used a program called goldwave. I think its pretty common too.

I got a free version of it from a mag. It worked fine but only let you use 2 of 8 options every time you opend it. I figured out a way to bypass this though:

Open the program choose which ever filters/effects you want & when you need some more save the sample to the clipboard, close program, open it again & choose two different options & Viola! Pretty clever huh?

Anyway changing pitch isnt a problem (use a pitchbender), making it sound older im not sure how to do that, might take a bit of experimentation.

Good luck.

I also recommend Goldwave. You can download it for free here:

You will be asked to register once in a while. Whether you do or not is entirely up to you and your conscience.

Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge can do it. It's much easier to make a voice more masculine or feminine than it is to make it sound like an older version of the same voice, since the enunciation will be the same in the altered version and it rarely is in a genuine aged voice, but (for example, with a man's voice) if you raise the pitch slightly (this is where you need the good audio editor, because most cheap ones will raise the pitch by speeding up the recording--you want one that will not speed up the recording to raise the pitch) and then add a very little bit of warble into the voice you can make it sound older.

I use SoundForge 6 for all my audio work - did cost $350 but well worth it. And you can always buy the slightly-less-featured but still fine for most people version that sold for $80-$90 last time I looked
