Changing your voice on a microphone can be a difficult process, if you don't plan to purchase expensive vocal or external FX processors. However, you can record your voice with real-time vocal effects using music production software, like Cakewalk Sonar and Sony Acid. These enable you to hear vocal effects, such as vocoder, echo and reverb in real-time as you're recording.

Plug the microphone into your computer sound card in the "Mic" or "Microphone" slot. Click the "Start" tab, located on the bottom left of the start up screen. Click "All Programs" from the scroll down menu, then "Accessories" and "Entertainment." Select the "Volume Control" tab from the menu and make sure the "Microphone" box is checked.
Open the music production software and create a new file by selecting "File," then "New." Create up to five new audio tracks by selecting "File" then "Add New Tracks." Enable the record function on track one by selecting the "R" located in the "Track Field." Right click track one and select "Effects" from the pull down menu.
Set the effects that you want, such as vocoder, echo, distortion and vocal patterns. Click the "Track Window" on track one to expand the "Track Option" box. Turn the microphone on and talk into it to test to see if you're getting a signal in the "Track Option." Check the microphone connection to your sound card, if you're not receiving a signal.
Click the "Record" button located at the top of the screen. Speak or sing your choice of words and select the "Stop" button when you are finished recording. Place the "Start Clicker" at the beginning of the recording and click "Play" to hear it back.
Change the vocal effects or delete the recording, if you are unsatisfied with the results.
