Unable to hear/understand users
Hello. Figured I'd ask here since I can't seem to find anyone on the servers I talk on that can figure it out. For some reason, I am unable to hear/understand certain people. Now other people on the server can hear them just fine. But when they speak, I only hear a broken static. And this only happens it seems with a few people overseas (ex. U.K., Germany). Additionally, with another person, I have their special effect: volume turned up by 800% and I can barely hear her but yet she is loud to everyone else. Can anyone explain/help me with these issues?

is the codec speex?
have the users that have static and yourself reset the amplifiers in setup to zero.

Yes the codec is speex. As to what the other person has their amplifier set to, I'm not sure. My inbound is set at -2 b/c other people were refusing to turn their outbounds down from like +6.

Try this and see if it helps your case, it did mine. I wa having lots of problems with some being so loud that I couldn't understand what they were saying and some so soft I couldn't hear them.

Open the setup and click on SFX, under the Avaliable window select COmpressor and add it. Select properties and set the sliders as close as you can to the following:
Gain 18
Attack 0.01
Release 511
Threshold -30
Ratio 100
Pre delay 4.0
Click ok

This made ALL the users on VENTRILO the same volume to me, and brought those very loud down so I could understand them.
Hope this helps you too.
