Help/Advice with character voice acting lines.

Hello dudes and dudettes!

Alright, so this will be a somewhat short post compared to my previous post about my ambition build, but it follows the same suit of armor and it's character.

Basically, to sum it up, I'm working on a new suit of armor that I am aiming to fit a certain persona that I aim to achieve by the use of pre-recorded lines and sound effects that can be activated by pressing buttons that will be in my suit's gloves. This system will have eight buttons, each button having up to ten different sounds recorded into them. A button can be used for confirming something, lines to disagree to something, adding to the character lore, giving orders, or Halo Smart AI responses to the character, as well as prop sounds effects.

So, I need some advice to help find a voice that sounds like the voice of Locus from RvB, minus sounding like chronically being stuck inside of a toilet. However, I aim for the voice to be a little more tense and almost have that straight-to-the-point-dead-inside-I've-seen-some-****-I-want-to-unsee voice. With perhaps an AI sounding something along the lines of Freckles from RvB, or maybe even a female AI that I have yet to decide on. Obviously the main voice and AI voice, if the AI is not female, would need a voice changer. But what it also comes down to is finding dialogue. If y'all have ideas for lines and dialogue, let me know in the comments too please!

See ya on the other side,

I'm (hopefully) going to do be doing some voice recording for a HL2 map soon, and a while ago found this tutorial. Followed it through and it didn't turn out too bad for a first attempt. It uses Audacity.
You could probably play around a bit and make some lines to sound like Locus! I would need to rewatch a bit of RvB to be able to think of lines.

You could either sample lines from the show (that would involve getting the content and chopping it up into soundbites. Or you could use something like Reaper to record yourself or someone you know with a similar voice, then play with some of the EQ and Filter settings until you get it how you want it to sound. Not difficult, just a lot of work.

Ive never heard of Reaper before, it looks like an awesome program, I'll certainly have to try it out. Thanks!
