When you first start Voice Changer Plus, it is ready to record and play back in your own voice.
To play back the recording in a different voice on iPhone or iPod, tap the picture in the center of the screen. You will see a list of voices that you can use. Scroll up and down to see them all. Tap one to select it. On iPad, the voice list is always visible, so you can just tap on one.
Once you have selected a voice, tap the green Play button again. The recording that you made before will be changed and will play back in the new voice.
Important: If you tap the record button again without saving your previous recording, the previous recording will be erased.
To save a recording, tap the "save" button on the lower right corner of the screen. You will then be asked to name the recording. You can enter a name or accept the suggested name. Tap "OK" to confirm your name and save the recording, or tap "Cancel" if you decide not to save.
To share a recording, tap the "share" icon on the lower left corner of the screen. The first time you do this, you will be asked to confirm your consent to share. Tap "YES" to confirm. You will then be presented with the following options:
In many cases, your recording will be converted to a video before sharing. This depends on whether the service requires a video format to share your content; otherwise, it will be sent as an audio recording. If you have upgraded, the picture that is used to make this video can be changed on the Settings view.
Tap the "List" button on the upper right corner of the screen to view a list of your previously saved recordings.
Select a recording by tapping on its title. Now you can:
When you reload a recording, you can change your voice again, even if it was already changed – this is a great way to get creative by layering on more voice effects.
To delete a single recording, swipe to the left to reveal Remove and Delete buttons. The Remove button will remove the recording from you device, but a copy will be saved with iCloud, and you can download it again by tapping the Cloud icon. The Delete button will delete the recording from all of your devices as well as from iCloud, and cannot be undone. You can edit multiple recordings at once by tapping the "Edit" button on the top right corner of the screen. While editing, you can also drag your recordings up or down to change the order by using the drag handles on the right.
To exit the list view, tap the button at the upper left of the screen, or slide the screen over from the left edge.
Once you have a recording for playback, you may want to shorten the length of it. On the main screen, hold and drag one of the blue handles on either side of the recording on the top of the screen. This will cause the header to say "Trim." On either side, you will see an option to cancel the Trim control, or shorten (trim) the recording. You can preview the trim you have made by playing the green Play button at the bottom before actually trimming your recording.
Note that trimming a recording will also make any voice changes permanent, so it's a good idea to save the unchanged recording first if you might need it again.
Once you have a recording for playback, simply tap the picture to be shown a list of Voices. You can scroll from top to bottom to see all of your choices. On iPad, the voice list is always visible, so you can just tap directly on one. Tap the Voice you want to switch to, or tap the "Cancel" button at the upper left of the screen to keep the Voice you had before.
You can turn your recording into a ringtone or alert tone to use on your phone. Tap the “Ringtone” action button in the share sheet. Your ringtone file will be sent to the File Sharing section for iOS apps in iTunes. Next, connect your device to a computer and start the iTunes app. Select your devices and click on Voice Plus. Select your ringtone(s). Ringtone files end in “.m4r”. Drag or save them to the desktop. Double click the ringtone files. Select the "Tones" tab, then check "Sync Tones and "All Tones" in iTunes. Sync your device using the Sync button. Assign your ringtones in the Settings app on iOS, under "Sounds". Tap the Ringtone action button in the share sheet in Voice Changer Plus to refer to these instructions. You can also refer to the video below for step-by-step instructions.
Voice Changer Plus requires you to allow it to have access to your device's microphone to work. If you selected "no" when the app asked for permission to use the microphone, you will have to turn it on. Go into the Settings app on the iPhone home screen and select Privacy, then Microphone. Make sure the switch for Voice Plus is on.
If you bought any upgrades for Voice Changer plus in the past, they will be permanently available on all your iOS devices. However, they may appear to be lost if you delete and reinstall the app. This can happen for example when you get a new phone. Here's how to get your upgrades back for free:
Be sure to use the same iTunes account you used to make the original purchase.
If you are having trouble restoring a previous purchase using the Restore button, here are some things to check.
1. Must use same Apple ID: Your upgrade purchase is credited to your Apple ID. If you need to restore a purchase, you must use the same Apple ID that was used to buy it initially.
2. Bad WiFi or cellular connection: The app needs to reach Apple’s servers when you attempt the restore.
3. Temporary Apple server issue: This is rare but it has happened. The solution is is try again later, perhaps the next day.
4. Credit Card issue: The iTunes account must be in good standing with a valid credit card, even though Restore is free.
5. Device Restrictions: Check device settings in the Settings app under General/Settings. In-App purchases must be permitted.
You can import and export recordings by using iTunes file sharing. Files are exported in m4a and m4r formats. You can import files in AIFF or MP3 format. Open this link in your browser for details:

Q. Where are my recordings?
A. Before version 5, all recordings were stored in the iTunes File Sharing folder for the app. With this scheme, your recordings would only be backed up if you did an iTunes or iCloud backup. There were two problems with this. First, many people don’t do backups. Second, to restore your recordings, you would have to do a full restore of your device, including all other apps and data.
Apple has since introduced private cloud storage for apps, called CloudKit. In version 5.01, new recordings are backed up using CloudKit when they are saved (this is not the same thing as iCloud Drive). For this reason they no longer go into the File Sharing folder. The advantage is, you can restore just the recordings you want, without having to restore your whole device. Also, your recordings will automatically be available on all your devices. Note that you must be signed in to iCloud for these backups to happen.
Unfortunately, in version 5.0 there was a bug which stopped recordings from being automatically imported from the File Sharing folder. But if you didn’t delete the app, they are all still there. Version 5.01 fixed the bug and you can import them manually. Just tap Import, select File Sharing, and accept the import.
Note that you can also now export your recordings to Dropbox, Google drive, iCloud drive, and to other apps. You can also still export them to the File Sharing folder if you want to.
