While I was "exploring" many of the settings on my VoiceWorks, I took a break and my sons had a very convincing "young girl/little girl" sound they were laughing at. I was pretty impressed. Now....with many things, it all starts with the **INPUT**. I have a lower voice than they do...but, not by much as they've JUST passed the puberty stage. Depending on the actual sound you're looking for, they/we were most successful by starting out with the higher voices, narrowing it down to one SINGLE voice that's the closest to what you're looking for...then shut off the dry/original/unaffected voices
The VoiceWorks is still in production (as of a few weeks ago according to a TC-tech and they are still selling great in many of the major tores (on-line, brick & mortar).
You also reinforced my point on "LIMITED BUDGETS" and why the VoiceWorks should not ONLY be kept in the line-up, but keep adding a few new features and a great MANUAL & DVD Tutorial. Once they get the "feel" for it....it would be a LOT easier to justify an upgrade (and feel it's not a BIG GAMBLE).
I hope this helps. Besides doing those "odd" vocals....there are some REALLY SWEET harmonies in this thing. Some are so good it makes you want to find some songs to sing "A cappella" if you don't already have some!
