Can the Spoiler Sound be made Softer??

Recommended Posts

Hi GuysI just like to know as the title say, when you deploy the spoilers in-flight to slow down, are they really that load up front in the cockpit?And is there anyway of making it softer, like editing the sound.cfg or some where else, or do I need to reduce the sound of the file by recompiling it?Any ideas?I really LOVE the PMDG 737 and fly it alot and that spoiler sound is only thing I really find anoyingly loud.Kind RegardsJannier

There are two ways to do this.[1] Use the built-in Windows Sound Recordera. Locate the spoiler sound make a backup of itb. Go to Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->Entertainment-->Sound Recorderc. Go to File-->Open & open the spoiler soundd. Play the sound to note its present volumee. Go to Effects-->Decrease Volumef. Test the sound again (u can play with the volume levels)g. Save the sound[2] Use Audacity - its very capable and *free* audio editora. Start Audacity & open the spoiler sound in itb. Press the Envelope button (blue line between two triangles)c. Click in an area inside the soundd. You will see white dots appear in a line:e. Dragging a dot up or down will increase/decrease the volume of the soundhttp://www.transom.org/tools/photos/200404...city/audenv.giff. Dragging just *ONE* dot or down is a fast way to adjust volume of the *entire* soundg. Save the soundDownload Audacity here:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/about.phpHope this helps :)

quite simple there Jannier,go to fs9 main folder/sounds find the folder named pmdgclick on it - inside youll see a folder named 737ng or something like that - click on itthen(not sure the direct name of the spoiler sound) but search around and c which one makes that roar soundmake a back up paste it soimewhere where u can find itthen go back to the 737ng folder, right click on the filea menu should open upclick on the record tab, then a window should open up that shows the schematic for that file, Im forgetting the steps now, but search around the tabs at the top - u should c option to increase/decrease the volume - just click on either until it suits your taste - close down the window to save or just click the save tab, fire up fs9 and you should be good to go.This will work only if you have .wav files assigned to windows media. Any thing else light real 1 player and u wont get the option to record when u right click on the file.Its going to work, I do it on almost a daily basis so dont worry, and its a lot easier than the way It sounds so. Any problems just replace with your backup and get back to me.enjoy your flights.Gideon.

It's located under Program Files/Microsoft Games/Flight Simulator 9/Sound/Pmdg/737tng/Spolier.wavRight click on it and select Record.A little program will pop up called Sounder Recorder.From the Sound Recorder menu, select Effects.Then select Decrease Volume. It will decrease it by 25% just as the increase option will do. IMPORTANT: On my computer the sound files for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 are very loud outside the sim when played using Sound Recorder or any .wav playing program. If your system volume and speaker volume is the same as when you played the sim, keep in mind these sounds are very loud. Keep that in mind when adjusting the file volumes for these wavs.

I just read this thread a little better and realized we all basically said the same thing. :-lol I just wanted to make what Gideon posted a little clearer, but the first reply was the same. Oh well, I included the warning about the sounds being louder outside the sim. This may not be the case for everyone, but for me it is, and I play the sim pretty loud. If I adjusted the sliders any higher in FS9, I wouldn't be able to hear ATC.;)
