Voice really matters when making a virtual environment come to life. Humans are social beings, and the metaverse as currently promoted is a social environment where participants create unique personas in both home and workplace settings. Avatars will allow players to express themselves the way they want to be seen as human, alien, animal, vegetable, cartoon or myriad other options. Players can try on new looks temporarily, the way they try new outfits. Gender and species are fluid. A truly complete immersive experience requires a combination of 3D visuals and real-time audio to enable people to express themselves in the way they want to be heard. Participants want a sonic representation of themselves that is just as original and unique as their visual avatar and they want the tools to customize their voice as meticulously as their appearance. There must be a harmonious marriage of both augmented audio and 3D video to keep the player immersed and engaged. Real-time audio defines how people can bring the ultimate individuality to their content, making audio the great equalizer of the metaverse.
