I found the doc on CCO about the registry settings for AGC adjustment. It seems the only one we should even attempt to adjust is the AGCtargetDB value. The recommended values are -12dB to -18dB, however, when I look at my registry key, the value is something like 43678. Is this some kind of anomaly? How do I go about entering a negative value in this field?<br><br>Thanks<br><br>
Actually, you'll probably want to use -26dB there since this is (roughly) what the prompt are recorded at.
That number there is a decimal value for a negative number in hex (the registry editor doesn't show negative numbers). you do negative hex max by counting backwards from 0 where negative 1 is FFFFFFFF, negative 2 is FFFFFFFE etc... Kind of a pain. Helps to use the Windows Calculator to convert from a negative decimal number to a hex.
You can use the Advanced Settings Tool (which ships with this value as an option in Unity 3.1(2) or later or you can get it off AnswerMonkey). This lets you just select from a drop down list the dB level you want and you're done. A little less error prone.
The set volume tool adjusts the dB level of standing voice names and greetings, it doesn't set the dB level for new recordings in the registry while it's at it (although I suppose it could).
the pubs folks are looking at publishing an updated "volume issues" document for 3.1(1) and later (AGC support started in 3.1(1)). The basic course of action is:
1. Set the WAV volume adjust for record and playback both to 0 (this can be done via the Advanced Settings Tool as well).
2. Set the AGC to -26dB and restart Unity.
3. Use the Set Volume tool to relevel all your voice names and greetings to -26 dB as well. Now all your WAV files should be the same level and all new recordings will be at that same level.
4. If the playback is a little low you can adjust the playback boost for the WAV file a dB or two at a time until you're happy with it (don't ever set the record boost to anything other than 0 with AGC enabled). This can be done with the WavGain utility with Unity on line.
That should be it. This is what we'll be suggesting ALL 3.1(1) and later systems do... 3.1(3) comes with AGC enabled automatically for new installs so only upgraded systems will need to do anything special here.
pop out to the AnswerMonkey.net site and go to the WaveGain tool on the General Tools page. It has the registry settings you need to edit there and you may consider using the WavGain tool to adjust the volume playback level on the fly with Unity running until you're happy with it (lots easier than fiddling with the registry, restarting Unity, rinse, repeat).

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
