    I know we normally use 'in' in constructions like 'He said it in a soft voice'. Would 'with' be out of the question here?

    Thanks in advance.

    "He said it with a soft voice."

    That sounds fine to me.

    I would stick to the normal in. The use of with is relatively unusual, though not "out of the question".
