     You’ve seen them before: those toys that have a microphone and a speaker. You talk into one and out comes an altered version of your voice; perhaps making you sound like a fairy or a lumbering beast. For the past few years, I have looked for a software product online that lets me do the same thing with my computer, but I’ve been unsuccessful. So I made my own. This program demonstrates the use of DirectX’s DirectSound API (you’ll need DirectX 9 or later). Unlike most programs, it is not limited to just capturing sound or playing sound. It does both. Honestly, this program is a little uncharacteristic of me, as it has few comments and is terribly sloppy. The main reason is that I am still struggling to understand this complicated side of programming, too. Still, it’s a fun toy and demonstrates one way of dealing with the nasty problem of synchronizing two separate sound streams. Happy coding and Happy Halloween.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
