  • Vega - quieter voice than others?

    Now that I am using the Singularity, I have noticed that Vega seems to be a lot quieter than my other two crewmen (Orion and Midnight). Perhaps the sound files need to be equalised across the board? I only have the three crewmen, so I can't say what the others are like.

    Yes he was quieter mainly due to Mr spiner speaking quite softly himself. We did raise him slightly for this test so further feedback on that is welcome

    You see, TheThingIs, eventually you'll be allright.

      He’s definitely quieter which is probably more of a problem because he’s in the same crew as Tom Baker! It’s not a massive issue.

        LEO has the same issue, can hardly hear him when ASTRA is at normal volume.

          The individual voice packs have different normalization levels from each other, which is what causes this. Before the format of the audio changed, we were able to use normalization tools to fix this and re balance the voice volumes to a more unified level. Now we have to wait for HCS to do it due to the format that's currently used (I personally haven't found any available freeware that's capable of doing it).

          Now we have to hope that it will be addressed now that the Sigularity Beta makes this issue much more glaring. I find even within the same profile, some of the voice files are way too quiet when compared to the rest.

          PLEASE HCS,... normalize all the voice files to the same level,... or at least to levels that make sense (IE: when a character yells, make it louder). When you have for example "Acknowledgement" responses that are all recorded at different volume settings, it just doesn't sound right.

            this is actually very high on the list with Singularity. Some were done, tentatively but it's a lot more complicated than you think

              seeing as the .ogg file format (Ogg Vorbis) I am highly surprised that there are no free tools that will normalise. I always thought that Audacity supported it (quick look at the Audacity wiki shows that it does)

              4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong

                I had a look at the sound files and Vega is mono and both Celeste and A.S.T.R.A. are stereo. This seems to make quite a difference when it comes to playback on multi-speaker systems.
                Certainly, you can open the ogg and wav files (Vega is OGG) with something like Adobe Audition, tho I don't want to mess around with them in case I screw something up. Also, there are a hell of a lot of files so it would be quite a bit of work to get them playing similarly to the other voice packs.
