Now more than ever, Audiences want to feel connected to brands. When they do, the difference it makes can be monumental. In a recent study of US consumers, 57% said that they would increase their spendings with a business they felt connected to, 76% said they would buy from them over a competitor and 68% were more likely to recommend them to others.
How can voice cloning connect you with your audience?
Whether you have a business, a brand, or a project, you can benefit from scalable voice cloning as a service, due to the significant impact it has on your sonic branding. Not only will your new cloned voice help your customers feel more connected with your brand, therefore increasing your revenue, but it will also save you hours of time and money too, therefore decreasing your costs.
Imagine this for example: You are the CEO of a small business and you want to create digital content for your customers or prospects in a way that fosters a personal connection between you both. However, as much as you might love to be able to record yourself producing this content, you also have countless other tasks you need to juggle. This can make it almost impossible to find the time for recording hours of content in a studio, and then spend hundreds to have it edited and mastered.
So, what's the solution?
By cloning your voice, you can streamline this process and automate the content so that it is personalized to you and your users in minutes instead of hours. Not to mention, with api.audio by Aflorithmic, you can add your chosen sound design template over the script of your cloned voice, and master it too, so the entire audio production process is automated end-to-end.
How is it possible to clone a voice?
With just 2 hours of recordings, we can complete the cloning process using the base model of a male or female voice, and then personalize it with the unique data from your voice based on approximately 2000 recorded phrases.
As you can imagine, the more data you provide, the more accurate and higher quality the voice will be. We recommend two hours of recordings, however, there is no upper limitation on the amount of data, the more the better!
How does it all work?
Now, we know you’re probably wondering how we can make this happen for you. And once you understand the process behind it - It’s pretty fascinating!
Our machine learning process uses pattern recognition to find the combination between several different data factors. Since voices are unique human identifiers, it’s not possible to labor the data as it is in other data cloning processes. So what we must do instead, is get the cloned voice as similar as possible to the real voice. As this is subjective, and not quantifiable, we are constantly performing extensive stress-tests on the voices, which are then listened to and evaluated by our team of experts.
How can you do this?
- First of all, you will need to start off by telling us what you would like to use your cloned voice for: Sonic Branding, Sales and advertising, Children’s stories, or whatever your individual use case may be.
- Based on this use case, we will then provide you with one of the different scripts we have, whether that be a sales script or storytelling script for example.
- You will then need to record the script of approximately 2000 phrases. As this is done through an app, you can do it from home using your mobile phone or computer. However, for the best sound quality we recommend the most quiet place possible as it is important to avoid all and any background noise.
- After we receive the data, we will then begin the voice training process and let the machine learning do its magic. We may complete this deployment process once, or sometimes even twice, to ensure that it is as accurate and well-trained as possible.
- Approximately one week later, your voice model will be ready for you to start integrating into your digital content through api.audio by Aflorithmic!
Aflorithmic’s Best Practices for Voice Cloning:
- Know your tone - Depending on the use case you would like to use your cloned voice for, you need to adopt an appropriate tone. For example, just as there are different scripts for sales and storytelling, your tone should also reflect these differences. So if you are looking to clone a voice for sales purposes, it’s best to speak with an uplifting and engaging tone. Whereas, if it's for storytelling, your tone can be more calm and chilled.
- Consistency is key - Whilst the overall tone can differ on a case to case basis, the intonation in your recordings should not. This means that it’s important not to vary your intonation too widely within the recording process by sounding happy or sad in different moments. The idea is to speak as neutrally as possible, so that we can clone the most accurate and adaptable model of your voice.
- Eliminate background noise - Naturally, the models are very sensitive, so any background noise could affect the voice training process. That’s why, if you don’t have access to a soundproof studio, we recommend recording in the smallest and most quiet room possible to avoid any background noises.
- Complete it quickly - Due to a variety of different factors, it’s possible for your voice to change slightly from week to week. So to avoid any inconsistencies, we recommend completing the recording process within a three day time period.
