Can anyone tell me if there is a way to make a downloaded song louder or quieter? I have some songs that I like but they are very quiet or too loud.

Should be able to do this by dragging the CON into the Quick DTA Editor (C3 CON Tools).

 

Scroll down to 'vols', it will look something like this:

 

      (
         'vols'
         (0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 -3.00 -3.00)
      )
 
These are dB volume gain per audio channel, try kicking it up by +6 dB:
 
      (
         'vols'
         (6.00 6.00 6.00 6.00 6.00 6.00 3.00 3.00)
      )

 

Save the file and close it, then compare the result with the original (_backup) in Visualizer and you will hear the volume changed.

I think the DTA edit will require you to clear your songcache in order for the game to recognize it.

Also you may need to rename the file.

Does this actually work?

There is a remark in an old thread saying only negative values work, so you can lower a custom's volume but not increase it.

In my experience so far, it's quite rare for a custom to be too loud, but there is at least 10% of them with low volume. Some are so low that the crowd noise becomes really annoying, so just pumping up your speakers doesn't help.

Or is there also a way to lower the crowd volume?

You can't go higher than 0 IIRC, but if the song's volume is at -3, you can go up to 0.

That's a pity, it seems quite common for me to find customs that are significantly lower in volume than in-game songs... for example your own Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is possibly the lowest ever, was it a limitation of the original audio file?

Is there any option to instead lower the crowd volume when the song is already at 0dB? Or even disable the crowd noise altogether?
