adjust level sounds using FREE AUDIO EDITOR
« on: October 11, 2009, 07:17:31 AM »

How to Change the Volume on a WAV using Free Audio Editor


Go to "File" then "Open." Double-click on the WAV file you want to adjust to open it.

Go to "Effect" then "Amplify." Type in a number less than 100 to decrease the volume by that percent. For example, if you want the WAV to be half as loud type "50." Type in any number greater than 100 to increase it. After choosing the volume click "OK."

Go to "File" then "Save" to save the changes. This new volume is permanent and will be the same across all programs.

This simple little exe will batch convert all sounds in the Samples folder from 22,050 to 44,100 or vice-versa.
http://www.wavosaur.com/

Tools/Batch/pick source & destinatioon folders/pick Function/Run--> takes a few seconds
For 22,050 --> 44,100 pick Re sample 44,100.
For 44,100 --> 22,050 pick Re sample 22,050.  :)

This program has 2 versions, the free and masters.
The free version is awesome and I'm using it. ;D
I was thinking, if the free is so good, what kind of software can be the masters?! :o
Wave Pad Audio Editor:
http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/index.html

Almost forgot... This program is a very good tool for editing sounds.
You can cut, merge, save in a lot of formats, apply filters, equalize, apply effects and edit samples byte to byte.

My 2 cents.

Thanks for hooking us up with the tools guys !

Paulo
I have a question ,
I didnt post in the tech help becuse its reguarding the Level Trim tool.
I downloaded the tool and did a search on how to use it but came up with nothing.
I dont know how to use the Lev Trim tool.
I do know which Wave sounds I want to change and were they are.
The only thing I want to do is reduce the volume of some sounds and increase others.
Is it only the Wave sound , or do I have to modify the .prs ?
I dont want to change anything  other than the level that they are heard in the game.
How do I know the current level and how do I change it to a new level with out changing other values ?

Thanks for your time.

Well it all depends on what you want to do :

_You want to edit only one (or several different) wav sounds :

I use Audacity do do that :

http://download.cnet.com/Audacity/3000-2170_4-10058117.html

_ You want to edit ALL the wav files of say, an engine, and give them the same value :

then edit the SPL value of the corresponding .prs file. Keep in mind that SPL values are given in decibels, and that you will only hear a small difference if you increase or decrease the value by 3 db steps.

example 103db is sligthly louder than 100db

In the example below if you set the spl value (in red) to say, 116; the engine will sound louder

[common]
mode         relobj pos
type         mixer
infinite     1
EAXMix       0
occlusion   -200
occllf       0.25
eaxroom      10
obstruction -200
obstrlf      0.25

mutable      1

[spl]
110


[samples]
DB605_starter.wav
DB605_1000.wav
DB605_1500.wav
DB605_2000.wav
DB605_2700.wav
DB605_2701.wav
xDB605_1000.wav
xDB605_1500.wav
xDB605_2000.wav
xDB605_2700.wav
DB605_dmg.wav
1.wav
x2.wav

Of course and as usual you will BACK UP your files and folders FIRST ... ;)

Thanks Mick !

Say I have a engine sound that I really like , every thing sounds great but I would like the start up to be a little louder only in the external view.

I also have a 50cal pack that I really like , but is too loud ( for my personal taste ) in external view at close range.
Internal sounds nice , as it does from a distance.


What would you recomend ?
Is Audacity very complex ?
I dont ever intend on using it for anything other than adjusting the wave volume .

Thanks again for the help.

"...but I would like the start up to be a little louder only in the external view."

Well as far as there is only one kind of start .wav files, I mean there is no difference between internal and external startup sequence wav sounds (unlike engine sounds where the x files are for external sounds), so I am afraid that if you increase the volume externaly, it will also increase it from inside the cockpit...

So I am not that sure that you can differentiate internal and external start-up sounds, I am sure people like Jafa can tell you ...

Same with what you want to do with your 50cal pack,may be this is doable through the .prs file but I don't know how to do it ...  :-[

Audacity isn't that easy to master but well if you only have a few files to modify then you could send them to me by email and I'll do my best ... check your PMs ... ;)

Thanks so much Mick !
I really appreciate the help and the fact that you would take the time to work on them for me. ;D
I was able to bumble through it last night , with your advice  I finally figured out how to adjust the volume on the waves.
Im very happy with the way it sounds now.
With some trial and error I played with the gain and got everything accomplished .
You are right , Audacity isn't  easy , for someone like me anyway.

I had trouble with Audacity closing due to errors , and its far more tool than I need.
I think Ill keep messing with

 ;D Shure can dude.... here is the internal of MY db 605 -air . start . begin- prs here you will see ive added an extra start up sound just for external perposes "X"DB605_starter.wav in editing the wav ive got it at the desired audio level and as you can see here ive added "distance" values to it so it cannot be heard over a certin distance  , make sense , im petty shure that if all you want to do is add value to say a start sound then you probably can.



[samples]
DB605_starter.wav
xDB605_starter.wav

[sample.DB605_starter.wav]
env      8


[sample.xDB605_starter.wav]
env      0 2
controls  dist

[sample.xDB605_starter.wav.dist]

minlo 0
minhi 0.3
maxlo 20
maxhi 100
value 0.6
pmin  1.0
pmax  1.0

You must unselect "encode to mp3" and "analize", because will be you to set the sound level, +4 or -4... good luck.
