Voicemod, the world’s leading audio avatar company, announced today the close of an $8 million USD Series A led by BITKRAFT Ventures. Voicemod’s vision is to enable gamers and content creators to find their true voice by providing immersive audio experiences via personalized voice avatars. The company will use this investment to launch mobile applications, expand further into the Asian markets, and invest in neural network-based (“AI”) voice and speech conversion technologies to create even more unique and realistic voices.

Using a combination of AI and Digital Signal Processing technologies, Voicemod offers users the ability to change one’s voice in real-time in order to enhance the overall gaming and streaming/social sharing experience and empower players’ desires to experiment with alternate personas. Voicemod allows gamers to switch among various voices, integrate sound memes, or experiment with game play-context related voice effects.

“We create sound effects that can take gamers and content creators anywhere and allow them to become anyone or anything. We believe that everybody should be able to express themselves creatively through sound so that every experience is amplified,” said Voicemod CEO & Co-Founder Jaime Bosch. “Image and video filters have increased in popularity and Voicemod is bringing the missing piece – a voice filter that enhances gameplay with fully immersive audio experiences. Thanks to the backing from BITKRAFT Ventures, we will be able to advance our mission to create more entertaining and engaging interactive audiovisual communication.”

“Voice is a fundamental signature of human identity.

As BIG’s League of Legends team’s main partner, the insurance group also backs the department that has an EU Masters championship and multiple trophies under their belt.

“We have been watching the triumphant advance of esports in Europe with great enthusiasm for some time now,” says Martin Gräfer, member of the Board of Management of the insurance group die Bayerische. “With our commitment to Berlin International Gaming, we are now taking the first step in this young, dynamic and rapidly growing environment. It gives us immense pleasure to do this side by side with one of the absolute big players of German esports clubs. We can’t wait to go on a title hunt together with BIG and the BIG Family.”

“As a club, we are very honored to be able to accompany such a traditional insurance company as a partner in esports for the first time,” says Daniel Finkler, CEO Berlin International Gaming. “The partnership is another milestone in our history and shows the relevance of the German esports market.

Since 2016, die Bayerische has been the main sponsor of the traditional football club TSV 1860 München and thus has a prominent presence in traditional sports as an insurance partner. In addition, the insurance company also supports clubs and projects in popular sports and is involved in social partnerships.
