I couldn't tell you--not won't, but can't! I don't know what her real name is, so while she might be one of the voices we got from online auditions, I'm not sure.

Just throwing my two cents into the pot: I was also put off by Oberon's voice, particularly because he sounds absolutely nothing like he does in KQ7, not even close. The lisp or whatever it was didn't even bother me that much; it was just that his voice isn't as deep and powerful as Timothy White's (the voice of the original Oberon and Feldspar). Just dropping it down a couple octaves would probably make it a lot better, though it's more than likely too late for that now.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

It's just what happens when he comes over into our world.

Haha! Okay then, that makes sense. ;)

A couple octaves? Doing that even to a woman's voice would make it no longer recognizable as human speech.

Here's what Oberon's voice would sound like if it was dropped three semitones (a quarter of an octave). Better perhaps, but there really isn't a way to get rid of the nasal element.

I was being partially facetious. A music major I am not. The point was that dropping it down would help.

Oh, that's loads better. You can kind of tell that it's been tampered with, but other than that, he sounds a lot more like the Oberon from KQ7.

I'm musically inclined, so I had a knee-jerk reaction with the "couple of octaves" suggestion. Haha.

Same here. People don't seem to realize what an octave is when they use it in discussion. But when you illustrate what an octave is, it makes a lot more sense.
