Apple Watch measures heart rate once in 5 seconds, which may degrade the whole experience. We do not recommend purchasing an Apple Watch for heart rate streaming and we still strongly recommend using a dedicated heart rate monitoring belt or armband for better, more accurate results. This Apple Watch update may be an excellent way for you to try all of Pulsoid's capabilities with a device you already have and upgrade to a dedicated heartbeat monitoring device later.
Your voice changes depending on your emotions all the time: slight changes in tone tell people around you if you are angry or scared, confident or nervous. It trembles, switches tone and volume, etc. But do you know what it won’t do? It won’t make you sound like a literal baby when you are terrified from a jump scare in Resident Evil or a robot when you are completely unbothered. Well, at least it was this way before our Pulsoid x Voicemod integration.
Here’s how to set everything up:
Chances are you have a Pulsoid heart rate widget set up already, if not check out this article 'How To Add Real Heart Rate To Your Stream'
If you don’t have a heart rate monitoring device here’s a guide on how to pick the right one for you Heart rate monitor for streaming
- Open the Integrations tab, find Voicemod in the marketplace and add it to your list.
- Click 'Configure' next to the Integration to set up and launch it. This integration works locally so you’ll need to have the Voicemod configuration tab open while using the integration.
- Configure your integration:
- Make sure Voicemod is launched and the status is 'connected' on the integration page. This step is important for integration to work and get all available voices for ranges
- Choose a default voice to use once your heart rate is outside of all other configured ranges.
- Change existing heart rate ranges (edit from-to bpm values, choose a certain voice profile, or a random one) or remove any. You can click 'Trigger' to check how you will sound when your heart rate is in the given range.
- Add new ranges by clicking '+'
- Click 'Update' to make changes live

You see, heart rate monitors are great: their data flow is accurate and almost instant, they are very low-key and you may even forget that you are wearing one sometimes. But they also may not be as informative as you want. It’s nice for active sports where all gear you wear should let you forget about it as much as possible but for streamers, who have to manage their whole layout, a bit more feedback and control would be quite helpful: it’s hard to argue that being reminded if your heart rate monitor is off and seeing what is your heart rate on the spot is nice. Stream Deck is such a popular product and chances are you already own one. So why not get the best from it with this new Pulsoid plugin?

VTubing is a world where creative freedom strives. You can quite literally create your avatar from scratch to better fit your personality. Unfortunately, though, some ways of expression are sacrificed in the process. Human emotions manifest themselves in very complex ways and not all of them can be conveyed to their fullest extent with only face or body tracking and manual tweaks to the avatars’ appearance.

Pulsoid can now be connected to Lumia Stream and it will allow your heart rate to interact directly with many aspects of your stream. This includes, but is not limited to TTS, chatbot messages, OBS changes, audio; But most importantly, it’ll make it possible for your lighting to respond directly to the changes of your heartbeat. Imagine your whole room turning red after a jump scare in a horror game. Or your lights pulsing faster and faster in the heat of a team fight. Or even having your lights beat to the same rate as your heart. That sounds spectacular in our book.
