You've adjusted the gain (-eadb) on a whole heap of them. Was that intentional?

Hi,
I used the RMS levels adjustments in your mixdown as reference, assuming you modified the volume of whole samples; Those conversion instructions should be run on original DAGGER.SND

What I did (mostly Unix command lines):
Create the table of RMS levels from original DAGGER.SND:

Code: Select all

(Run DaggerSoundExtract.exe under Wine)
$ for i in *.wav; do mv "$i" "${i%.wav}.raw"; done
$ for i in *.raw; do sox -r 11k -e unsigned -b 8 -c 1 "$i" "wav11k8b/${i%.raw}.wav"; done
$ for i in *.wav; do echo -e "$i\t$(sox "$i" -n stats 2>&1 | sed -ne 's@^RMS lev dB *\(.*\)@\1@p')"; done > rms.lst
Do the same on your mixdown DAGGER.SND to create a second table of RMS levels.

Create the table of output names from Daggerfall Unity's SoundClips.cs:

Code: Select all

$ ls *.wav|perl -ne '$fn = $_; chomp $fn; $n = $fn; $n =~ s@^0{0,2}(\d+)_\d+\.wav$@\1@; $map = `grep "= $n," ~/src/daggerfall-unity/Assets/Scripts/SoundClips.cs | tail -n1`; chomp $map; $map =~ s@^\s*(\w*).*@\1@; if ($map eq "") { $map = $n } print "$fn\t$map\n"' > dfu_names.lst
Join all tables and create conversion instructions (spaces in -t" " are tabs):

Code: Select all

$ join -t "     " rms.lst ../../mixdown/wav11k8b/rms.lst|join -t"       " - dfu_names.lst|perl -ne 'chomp; @args = split(/\t/); $gain = $args[2] - $args[1]; print "ecasound ".($gain != 0 ? "-eadb:$gain " : "")."-i resample-hq,11025,$args[0] -f:16,1,44100 -o ../wav44k16b-mixdown/$args[3].wav\n"'

Thanks for Info Helegad! I downloaded it :)

Pango, why it would not be safe to share? Id like to see the files, Im curious.

Ah, I see, I thought you converted directly from my files. Good thinking :)

That looks promising...
Make all sound effects respect volume setting (by Allofich)

Was that specifically a DFUnity problem? All SFX respected the volume slider in OG Daggerfall, at least they did for me.

Anybody got any feedback for Tamriel Mixdown?

The patch (re-)sets the volume in several places, I assume in some cases it didn't (say, sounds triggered by quest events, stuff like that). Also, that ensures that if you modify the volume slider, it will immediately take effect (or a close approximation).

I removed noise some AmbiantCrickets.wav
Was simple enough for this one, as you can select silence between chirps. Also, they're higher pitched than background noise

Ok, it took the whole afternoon, but I filtered noise (hiss) from all sounds the best I could:
SoundClips-1.2.zip
I removed the sounds not used in game (all numbered wav files), so it's a bit smaller.

They're still some sounds I've not totally satisfied with:

Code: Select all

  AmbiantPeople1.wav
  AmbiantPeople2.wav
  AmbiantPeople3.wav
  AmbiantPeople6.wav
  EnemyFrostDaedraAttack.wav
  EnemyIceAtronachAttack.wav
  EnemyIronAtronachAttack.wav
  Spooky2.wav
  SpookyHigh2.wav
The AmbiantPeople*.wav have unique noise and no silence, so they're hard to clean (but maybe not impossible).
Others are in a bad shape to start with, so maybe I just don't know how to get better results out of them...
