Default Individual levels

Is there a way I can lower the volume/levels of individuals that are too loud for me?

Yes, right click the user, go to Misc. Choose Special Effects. You will see Volume, Add it and then lower or raise as you would like.

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]
