Re: Messages

check out the volume tech tip :

http://www.answermonkey.net/AudioDecision.htm

Unity 3.1(1) will have proper inbound AGC control (i.e. all inbound recordings will be "pushed" towards -26 db roughly) which will help with this. Sounds like you have inbound recordings coming in way too hot. You can manually adjust the record level down on pre 3.1(1) systems (the audio decision tip covers that) which sounds like what you need to do. The problem will be that inbound recordings from different sources (i.e. internal vs. external calls) will come in at different levels and pre AGC you can only statically bump down record levels.

Re: Messages

Unity 3.0 by default has the G.711 quiet prompts installed.

Re: Messages

Well thats weird because I checked the registry on the unity box and comparing it to what the G711 Quiet prompts would be its different...
Default normal prompts: playback level fffffff6, Record level 5
Quiet prompts: playback level fffffff6, Record level 0:

so I have it without the quiet prompts loaded correct?

Re: Messages

The quiet prompts are more than just a setting in the registry. They are a set of hundreds of prompts (.wav files) that have been recorded at a lower db. You can feel free to adjust the registry if you want.

Re: Messages

No you should not because they are already on there. Prompts have changed between 2.4.6 and 3.0 too.

Re: Messages

I'd bump down the record level in the registry... the tech tip in my first post has instructions for how to do this (i.e. you'll probalby want to set it for a negative number if it's already at 0 which requires a little hex math). Without AGC that's about your only option in this case.

Re: Messages

oh yeah... bump that down to 0 and I'll be you notice a big difference. A value of 5 means we take the inbound recording and bump it up 5 db so if it's coming in a little loud, it'll be made a LOT loud then and cause the message to clip or break up which sounds like the case. If 0 is still too loud keep dropping it by a couple db until it's where you want it.
