Ike question

Postby Annabis » Tue Nov 09, 2010 6:02 am

Ike sounds exactly the same as he always has since season 1. The boys and even Wendy have slightly different voices then back in the first few seasons. Does anyone know who does the voice of Ike?

In one of their commentaries, Trey and Matt said that random little kids belonging to the cast/crew do Ike's and the other kindergartener's voices.

It seems like you can understand Ike better recently. He is forming coherent sentences as opposed to the random little things like "cookie monster" and "pooped my pants" that he said in earlier seasons.
Wow... that's pretty hardcore.

A little kid. Funny that you think the boys' voices have changed even though the same two people have voiced them from the beginning, while Ike's voice has remained the same even though a new kid voices him every couple of years or so.

Yeah, and it no longer sounds like he was recorded with a GE tape recorder sitting on the table in the middle of a room.

A lot of little kids of the same young age do sound alike; so Ike's voice sounds pretty consistent all these years and pretty generic sounding.

The other voices: Matt and Trey are getting older, they aren't making their voice sound as different for the characters as much as they used to in the beginning because of technology. They can speak into a computer that changes the pitch of their voices several octaves. This sound is different from the sound from the first few seasons when such equipment was not used.

If you watch season 1 you will notice a slight difference, especially with Cartman. Maybe it's just that small children all have close to the same pitch. While Matt and Trey's tone slightly vary from episode to episode, plus their recording technology has definitely improved. :assface:

I thought for Ike. It was little kids at first and now Matt does his voice.

I heard that somewhere.

Nope. They always get children of SPS to do little kids' voices.
