you can also set the following which will control all users connected without having to do each individual user.

[FONT=Verdana]Normalizing Volume per Server[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Right-click on ServerName[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Select Miscellaneous / Special Effects[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Select Compressor and click Add[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Under Compressor Properties use the following settings [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be (see below)[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Attack = 0.01 [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Release = Around 500 [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Threshold = Around -30 [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Ratio = 100 [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]- Pre delay = 4.0 [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Or these settings: [URL][/URL][/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]What the settings do:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Gain [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]How much volume you feed into the compressor. Not really relevant unless everyone is too quiet, then you can turn this up a little; turning it up too much will sound EXTREMELY BAD.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Attack [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]How fast volume change will happen. example: setting this to 500 means that any- [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]thing coming in will only be dropped in volume after a half a second. for vent this should [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]be set as low as possible. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Release [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]how fast the compressor stops changing things. not really that relevant with vent, setting it around 500 is good for voice material. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Threshold [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]This sets the point where we actually start changing what[/FONT][FONT=Arial Unicode MS][FONT=Courier New]’[/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Verdana]s coming in. Whereas 0 is the absolute loudest you can have for an input, -60 is super quiet. Average users will probably come in somewhere around -25 to -15, with the occaisional few being really q[/FONT][FONT=Verdana]uiet, which is why I have this set so low. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Ratio [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]How much any sound below the set threshold gets compressed and/or modified in the volume department. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]If you still want to hear SOME volume variation then set this lower (2-4)... the higher you set it the closer in volume everyone will be. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Pre delay [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Mostly just deals with processing; with computer and digital processors they can look ahead a few milliseconds to see what needs to be dropped in volume or changed before it actually comes through the speakers. Highest is ideal.[/FONT]
