In early February, Voicemod closed the purchase of Voctro Labs, a company specializing in music technology and AI. “The acquisition of Voctro Labs is a big step towards our vision that unlocks new forms of expression for our users and allows us to enter stomping in the business of singing technology and AI vocal identitiesBosch said in a company statement.

Voicemod, the revolution of live voice modulation
We could say that the history of Voicemod begins in 2014, when the brothers Jaime, Juan and Fernando Bosch founded the company. But the truth is that, before this, in 2009, they had already jointly launched a B2C voice change application, and after experimenting with real-time voice modulation and other technologies, it was when they shaped their great project : Voicemod.
Although a few years ago they considered closing the company, they finally went ahead and today they can boast of employing 156 people and having billed 12.5 million euros in 2022. During all these years they have developed expressive and immersive audio tools that facilitate the creation of sound identities, as well as the interaction with personalized sounds.
The experience evolved and caught the attention of the gaming and streaming industry. It went from being a platform to apply voice filters from Windows to offering various solutions. An example of this would be tunaa web portal where you can share sounds so that other users can take advantage of them and make use of various functions to create their own songs.
