Opacity: Adjusts MorphVOX's opacity level. Move to the slider to the left to make the application more transparent.

Use 24 hr clock: This changes alarms and time announcements to use a 24 hour clock (e.g. 14:42 versus 2:42 pm).

Show Add-On Links: Show add-on link in the alias, sound effects and background lists. This gives you quick access to any new downloadable MorphVOX packs.

Skins
This page lets you pick the skin to be displayed.

Sound Settings
This page gives you access to advanced sound settings.
Sound Threshold: This determines how loud sound needs to be before being Morphed.  With more background noise, this level may need to be raised higher.  Leaving this setting higher ensure that background noise isn't being morphed.  If this level is too high it may result in the voice not being morphed properly. The default is Low. 

Sound Quality: This determines how much processing is dedicated to morphing your voice.  The higher the slider, the more CPU time will be consumed by MorphVOX and the better sounding the morphing will be.  The default is the 2nd position.

Voice Pickup: This adjust how sensitive MorphVOX is in picking up your voice. Slide it to right if you are getting yoddling or choppiness in your Morphing. Slide it ot the left to increase the crispness or cleaness of the speech.

Listen Delay: This slider determines the delay between when you speak and when you hear your voice. The default is the first position.

Background Cancellation: This works in conjunction with "Sound Threshold" to completely eliminate background sound or noise.  Turn this off if you find your voice is choppy.

Hum Reduction (60 Hz): This reduces the noise from any electrical source that produces a 60 Hz Hum.

Full-Spectrum Sound: This maintains full frequency (20-20,000hz) sound during morphing to produce a better quality sound.  Turning this feature on does use more CPU however.

Echo Cancellation: Check this to remove/reduce any echo when you have MorphVOX set on listen mode (so you can hear yourself talk).  The default is to have this unchecked.
 

Device Settings
This page allows you to manually set the microphone and speakers used by MorphVOX.
Microphone: This drop-down will list all the valid microphone input drivers on your machine.  Choose the device that is attached to the microphone you will use for input into MorphVOX.

Playback: This is a list of devices used to play audio.  Choose the one you would like MorphVOX to use for echo/Listen and auditioning sound effects.  Usually this should be left as "Primary Sound Driver".

Playback Volume: Allows you to access the Windows playback volume control.

Use Legacy Drivers: Use an older way of capturing and playing back audio. This should only be used if you are having audio glitching problems, or you are using echo cancellation.

Microphone Volume: Allows you to access the Windows recording/microphone volume control.
