We’ve all seen and heard those sci-fi TV programs and films
which include characters – either real "living" beings or fully robotic ’droids
– that speak with electronic sounding voices.
The living beings are often heavily modified with mechanical
and electronic prosthetic devices. The modifications extend to voice changing

by changing the pitch of the metallic sound from a high through to a low pitch.
There is also a "depth" control, which adjusts the amount that
the metallic sound is impressed upon your voice, from a relatively normal voice
through to a fully metallic voice.
