A computer application that offers a powerful voice engine, with a growing catalog of 40 AI characters, provides a novel alternative for video game development or audiovisual projects when producing voices.
Replica app offer AI voices for games and videos
Replica, an application developed by Replica Studios of Australia, introduces interesting tools, such as one-click export to Unreal Engine, Unity, and support for Roblox Studio.
Replica’s app introduces a new mechanism to power game and film creation with the addition of artificial, yet high-quality voiceover lines and dialogue, saving studios weeks of costly voice acting retakes and script tweaks.
The Replica application includes 40 AI voice actors with the ability to convey realistic moods and emotions and a novel one-click export system to Unreal Engine, Unity, and Roblox Studio support.
The Replica is working closely with game studios to help them leverage voice AI, and has hosted over 120k audio sessions in the last three months of its web app, which has now been merged with its desktop app into a one-stop solution for creators. A portfolio showcasing the best of this voice library can be found in the demos section of its website.
Replica’s AI voice engine allows you to create more expressive characters at scale by producing synthesized voice from scripts, with easy-to-use style filters that control the mood or emotion of the voice. It also has more advanced controls for adjusting performance characteristics such as pace, emphasis, and intonation of utterances.
An unprecedented solution on this scale
For an app to offer this service with all the goodness described above is not something that goes unnoticed. Commenting on this recent release, Shreyas Nivas, co-founder, and CEO of Replica Studios said, “Our new Windows and macOS desktop app offers even more accessibility to Replica’s high-quality AI character voices and significantly facilitates voice production for games and filmmakers. We think creators will love the innovative one-click export to Unreal Engine, Unity, and Roblox Studio support that our app offers and we can’t wait to see the projects created with Replica voices, from games to animations, feature films, and more.”
Josh Holmes, co-founder of Midwinter Entertainment commented that “Replica made it incredibly easy to quickly produce voice lines and build the development of Scavengers, before recording the final lines with the actors. And the quality is very impressive. So much so that most people beta testing the game think the Replica-generated lines are actual voice recordings of our actors.”
Matt and Ben Horton, award-winning feature creators at Roblox, noted that “Replica’s AI character voices have real potential to be a game-changer for producing animated and game-based narratives, particularly for Roblox content creators looking for depth and variety from easy-to-set voices.”
Creators around the world can download the desktop application for free at replicastudios.com, with free credit to create up to 30 minutes of voiceovers.
