Adjusting a voice to match another: Change Pitch, what else?

This is kinda fun, but frustrating because I don’t know the term for the tool I want, nor how to locate it in the drop downs. I wish the Index had all the terms; searching many levels of the Manual is kind of hit & miss and slow.

So I successfully put Loud File after Good Volume File and made a single file, Two Voices.
Note what I have is a Stereo file, the first voice is about 8 minutes followed by the second voice for about the same time.
Then I reduced the volume of of Loud to match Good.
So the overall volume level is the same from start to finish; the second voice doesn’t cause the listener to turn down the volume anymore.

But the “timbre” of the second voice is hard on the ears; not “mellow” like the first.

Effect “Change Pitch” tells me IIRC that the first voice is B2, the second F1. Any hints on using this tool?

I did use the Equalization Effect to “flatten the treble” and it improved the second voice quite a bit. But still not quite there.

The Bass & Treble Effect might be of use, but I have a feeling what I want to do is mellow out the “punchiness” of the second voice and I have no idea how to do that. What should I fool around with?

Playing around a bit:

Change Pitch Effect:
FIRST VOICE B 5 (1002.273 hz)
SECOND VOICE G#/Ab 6 (1633.333 hz)

reduced second voice by two half-steps
still has lots of bass “rumble” in the sound.

Bass & Treble Effect:
BASS down 12
TREBLE down 8 (?)

then Compressor on the first few seconds;
moved the THRESHOLD all the way to the right
and increased the attack time.

Now the start of the speech does not jar the ear with sudden volume and “punchiness.”

So you win. I would have bet nobody could do it. “Make my voice sound like…” is a frequent forum request. It usually fails.

Not trying to make them sound like anything in particular, just want the second voice to not annoy the listener when making the transition.

That’s still world-class production editing. I sat for a live recording of a Very Well Known Singer and she needed, as the phrase goes, a lot of work. I wasn’t there for the post production, but when they got done, she sounded very professional, smooth and musical.

That’s why these people get flown to New York for a recording session.
