Question Recording A Cell Phone Call

I have a BOSS PS-5 Pitch Shifter pedal I use with my guitar and I want to use it to prank call/play a joke on someone I know (haha... you'd have to know them... and I'm really bored)... anyway I want to record it on my Olympus VN-4100PC Voice Recorder... I bought a Radio Shack Wireless Phone Recording Controller 17-855 on ebay to record it but the problem I'm having is the headset I have has 2 1/8" output cables... one for the microphone and one for the headphone/ear. I need to be able to run the mic cable through the pedal (1/4" input and output) and then bring it back together with the ear cable, run them both into a Y adapter (2 1/8 female to 1 3/32 male) so I can input it into the Recording Controller. I haven't bought my adapters yet but I'm starting to doubt whether the layout of this will work when they get merged back together as the go into the controller and the into the phone. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!

Just FYI the jack sizes are:
3/32 stereo male from the controller to cell phone
1/8 mono male from the controller to recorder
3/32 stereo female input for the headset
both headset cables are 1/8 stereo male
both input and output on the pedal are 1/4 mono

Funny idea! Assuming that you just want to shift your own voice, you'll have to route the headset mic (only) thru the Boss and see if it works OK with the mic. It may, or may not. If the mic needs DC to function, that could be a problem.

You may have to build the cable you need. 2.5mm split to 1.4" to go thru the pedal. And extension - cable female to male - that you can tap into might be easiest.

Good luck!

I do want to shift my voice but I do really know squat about making cables. If I could get specs to what you're talking about I might be able to find someone to make it for me.

I suppose I could use a regular SM-57 mic or something... would that work?

It might, but you still need to hear the call, somehow. For that you need a special cable.

If I knew what type cable or cable specs I would get it.
