You Shall Become a Dalek!
You know the score-youâ€™re home alone, just watched an episode of Doctor Who featuring the Daleks and before you can stop yourself, youâ€™re doing your own impression of the metal meanies. The only problem is that you canâ€™t emulate their grating tones in the same way that Nick Briggs does because you donâ€™t have a ring modulator (the device that enabled the signal-processing method that was used to create the grating, mechanical tones of the Daleks back in the â€˜60s, and is still used today by voice artist Nick Briggs) to hand.
Well worry no more because if you own an iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad (wot no Android? – Ed) you can now download a rather nifty little app called the iExterminate which changes your voice into that of a Dalek!
Completely unofficial and in no way linked to the BBC, the app comes loaded with 4 pre recorded phrases and four preset settings. So as soon as you download it, you speak into the phones mic, record your phrase and then apply one of the preset modulations to get yourself â€œDalek-isedâ€ straight away.
There is also a suspicious looking Dalek eye staring at you when you open the app which actually lets you manually adjust the modulation for your specific needs!
This genius little invention is guaranteed to raise a giggle and is a steal at 59p (at least 10% of profits will be going to the Alzheimerâ€™s Society). If you have the opportunity, get this now!
The full review can be found at SFX.com with an audio advert for the app which sounds an awful lot like Nick Briggs doing a Davros impression!
