David Letterman's girl voice

I just watched the youtube video of your night on Letterman. I might even have watched that as a 4 year old, it seemed vaguely familiar (I used to stay up past midnight watching TV as a toddler in mom's bed, waiting for dad to get home).

I was shocked at the beginning it sounds like you are repeating everything Letterman was saying into a mic, as the delayed voice sounded like a woman. How were you able to do that? I didn't notice any weird artifacts, which is unusual (or so I thought, maybe its really common ).

BTW, thanks for coming here!

Hi!! Thanks for your question.

That horizontal rack of gear you see in the Letterman video was something I called the "Voice Box," as it allowed me to very quickly manipulate a microphone input or use my voice to "control" other sound parameters. With David, I'm using the Eventide Harmonizer and also a delay...so you hear his voice being harmonized up and delayed.

All my best,
Suzanne
