Ive seen a couple of CP's with sick Vocoders that do the radio sounds before and after talking and I was wondering how this is accomplished?

dont use them, you will not make any sense to anyone. literally no one will understand you and you'll be made fun of, rightfully so
There is an app called voicemod if you will buy the premium version then just use the things that has radio in it or sum in other version there is an hl2 cp vocoder but yeah if you dont know what to do with your money then buy FL studio now feed me with best answer

Strongly recommend against this, I did it myself for a month on Impulse and can easily say its a terrible experience for everyone.

All users that I am to meet so far using vocoders display levels of behavior from high immaturity all the way to toxicity (Toxicity being very common), I believe the one and only exception so far I've seen is TSGE.

I personally used FL-studio, as just like TSGE I was very proficient in sound design and was even often commended for sounding extremely accurate to Half life 2, but that does not matter, as nobody will understand you because not everyone is capable...Furthmore it requires you to speak in a very exhausting and annoying way to get even a minority of people to understand you at all, as you need to strongly emphasize your words and slow down your speech as the original voiceactors did for the UU delegates in Half life 2.

Speaking in greater depth about this: People (Myself Included) will automatically and subconsciously expect you to be a terrible person if you use a Vocoder, yet again completely fairly as it is very common.

Everything you say will sound aggressive or 'ticked off' due to the vocoder and especially if you try to emphasize your words for it to even be somewhat understandable.

Yet another downside to this is also the fact that it takes much lower noise levels to make you inaudible, even for those who can understand through thickly distorted Voicechangers like myself, so if even 1 other person is talking while you are it is impossible for ANYONE to understand either of you as their voice will be mixed with a fumbling static that is your vocoder

The only pro I can say for using a Vocoder is that it makes it much easier on you to behave cruelly IC and not feel bad because it very much emphasizes to those around you that VC from you is always in character, making it clear that you are not OOC'ly just a toxic cunt who wants to feel tough...Although unfortunately for most Vocoder users as mentioned earlier that is often actually the case.

You will never ever be able to talk OOC in VC while a vocoders on because nobody will pick up on it and assume it is IC or just kind of not want you there anyway (I often feel this when someone with a vocoder joins in a VC OOC conversation I've started and I often feel bad for feeling this way towards them but it clutters and ruins the conversation alot, whenever they speak nobody else can and it becomes a mess)

Another kind of mean-in-its-contents but true statement about vocoders is the truth that nobody really wants to admit aloud:

If you do not have a very imposing or masculine voice you will sound hilarious, this does not just mean sounding like a kid, infact I aim more towards the fact that alot of the CP's of impulse with vocoders often have very geeky voices, the vocoder only emphasizes this and makes you sound more silly.

I also see you have recently been promoted to
OFC, welcome, now please heed my words and do not use a vocoder...ESPECIALLY as an OFC, you will be mocked even more so than before because of how cliche the 'Vocoder-Powertripper-OFC' Is, regardless of how powertrippy you are or are not.





Now as for the 'intro/outro radio sounds' that you show interest in

As far as I have seen I am the only person yet to do that and I use that regularly, although of course no with a vocoder anymore.

How do you do it?:

An E2 I made

Can I have it?:
Not at the moment​

Vocoder's aren't for everyone, but if you can do it well I don't see why you shouldn't.
DO NOT use Clownfish.
DO NOT use Voicemod.

Get the FL Studio trial, and look up a tutorial on how to get it working, it isn't hard.
Again: Vocoders are not for everyone. Like Ben said, you have to be comfortable holding down specific voices for prolonged periods of time, which may be stressful and not worth it in the long run.

First of all, Thank you. Lol

Secondly, everything you need is within a certain link right here for the real time FL studio setup.

Reddit link: https://www.reddit.com/r/VRchat/comments/m25mb2
Follow what that guy says, and you’re mint.

As for the radio on/off sounds. I just use soundpad from steam for like $5 and drop the sound files into there.

Have them set into a group and bound on sounds to mouse 4 and off to mouse 5.

While yes, some people think it’s annoying and aggravating, (call me what you will, but) I personally feel like it adds to immersion.

This coming from the guy who has 8 different filters for several characters… Including (but not limited to) a HL1 low quality filter.

Considering that you have stated that you actually already use a vocoder, I now suggest you get off it ASAP. It's clearly disliked in the impulse community and carries around a terrible reputation.

That's hardly true. I've had more people ask for my vocoder than people make fun of it. And most that did make fun of it are banned minges with 200xp.
