Click Here If set your System microphone to "MorphVOX Audio" then MorphVOX must be running to get any audio to come out.

You can solve this in several ways:

  1. You can set the recording program to use a different capture driver other than the default.
  2. You can run MorphVOX while you are recording.
  3. You can change the default device for sound recording back to your sound card's driver Click here for more Information. If you choose the third option, be aware that some programs only take input from the default device, and will now bypass MorphVOX.

We found that the most compatible way to use the morphing effects with other programs was to create a virtual driver. This allows any application to use it, and there are no tricky backdoor hooks that will break in future versions of the OS or compatibility problems with unknown programs. This driver has been rigorously tested.


To record the output of MorphVOX just change the program you use to record audio to use the "MorphVOX Audio" driver as the microphone input.

You may also record your voice directly to an audio file from within MorphVOX. Click Here for more information.

The best way to run MorphVOX with games that take as much horsepower as your computer can give them is to use the voice toggle key.

You can turn on voice key toggling under Preferences (File: Preferences menu). Click on the "Sound Settings" item on the left and check "Talk when key pressed." In many games, such as CounterStrike, you assign a keyboard key to your microphone; just assign the same key in MorphVOX.

The voice toggle key tells MorphVOX to get out of the way and only try to morph your voice when the assigned key is held down


The primary cause of MorphVOX not morphing your voice is because of low microphone levels. If you have run Voice Doctor and it indicated that the levels were low during your recording this is the cause of your problems.

You should adjust your microphone levels until Voice Doctor indicates "good" levels when recording.

If the levels are still not high when the slider is all the way to the right, most sound card drivers expose a "Microphone Boost" check box in the Volume Control.


It's important to talk in a normal voice, if you sing it, or speak in a higher or lower note then normal it will affect all the Aliases. Try re-running Voice Doctor.

If it still sounds off, just tweak the voices by selecting the Alias and going to the Tweak Sound drop down panel. After you get the right sound, just click the red check next to the preset name on the tweak panel and you'll never have to mess with it again.

Often just a slight adjustment to the Timbre or Pitch makes all the difference."


Download and run the following dmg: MorphVOX Uninstaller


This may be due to over correction of the timbre. To improve the quality, try moving the Timbre slider to the left or moving the Timbre Strength slider down.

The "play" button next to a sound effect is so you can audition the sound before deciding to annoy your friends with it. Once you select an effect by clicking on the name, you can send it out by clicking on the bigger "play" button at the top of the Sound Effects panel.


This typically happens with CPU intensive games on older machines when you have the Listen button on. You can reduce this condition by:

  1. Open menu item MorphVOX/Preferences and select the Sound Settings link.
  2. Set the Sound Quality to 2nd (medium low) position.
  3. Minimize MorphVOX.

If the sound quality is just fine to the listeners, then the stutter is an artifact in playback that you don't have to worry about. This was designed so that MorphVOX will give a higher priorty to the game and sound broadcast and lower prority to the playback. This ensures that your game or broadcasted sound doesn't stutter. You may even get better performance during a game by turning off the Listen button.

If you still have concerns about the output quality of MorphVOX, please contact support [at] screamingbee.com.


This usually happens because the speaker output is fed back into the microphone which then gets morphed again and put out the speaker.

There are a couple of solutions to this problem:

  1. Use a headset microphone instead of open speakers (recommended) so that the output does not feed into the microphone.
  2. Turn down the volume of your speakers and reduce the sensitivity of the microphone until it stops.
  3. Turn off listen and use Push to Talk so that the microphone is only active when you speak.
