what's this then?
More or less it's an app you can install on your smartphone. It repeats everything you say on the mic back to you at a settable delay, typically half a second or so. The sound of your own voice talking over yourself triggers a reflex pause in your speech and more or less gives you verbal Parkinsons.
On the OTHER hand, the exact same technology has been used to correct a stutter in a kid who could barely get a sentence out. They strapped this thing on him and he did a speech in front of his whole school.
It just has the fun effects of fucking up those of us with normal speech patterns.
If you get it, use headphones otherwise your device will feedback on itself like a motherfucker.
Yet another job-creating commercial venture brought to you by the Military-Industrial Complex! As seen on Guantanamo Shark Tank!
This is why I only use zero-latency monitoring on my setup.

If you can use zero latency these days. In radio before digital processing and stream feeds, it was a big deal that a DJ could monitor the signal off air in their headphones, so they could hear the final mix that listeners were getting.
Nowadays there's so much delay, and so much effort is being put into getting low latency, where I think audio pros would do better to give up monitoring the final mix, and just use an in-studio replica with low delay.
He hasn't got a speech jammer, he just likes to retard it out.
