decnetFrom where to where ?Oct 02 00:00
decnet.......Oct 02 00:00
MinceRfrom user to windowing system or other uiOct 02 00:05
decnetYea, spongy mouse syndrome ..Oct 02 00:06
decnetHow do I get the volume to stay the same, when the source volume is different?Oct 02 00:16
decneteg: Low youtube video, turn up volume, start local video, volume at full blast.Oct 02 00:17
MinceR 02 00:20
decnetSome setting that will actually detect the volume in the room.Oct 02 00:21
oiaohmdecnet: really currently there is nothing you really can do about that audio problem.   The issue is normally "Dynamic range compression" compression and how it was set.   So yes just because something sounds low volume or high volume electronically that does not have to be the case.Oct 02 00:22
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Dynamic range compression - WikipediaOct 02 00:22
decnetLike something that adjusts the screen brightness depending on the light in the room.Oct 02 00:22
oiaohmdecnet: I know this from having run should halls and having to use db meters for people safety.Oct 02 00:22
oiaohmshould/soundOct 02 00:23
decnetDynamic compression should do it, will look it up, thanks.Oct 02 00:23
oiaohmThere are some files that sound low audio that you can turn the volume up on in a sound hall and you can exceed safe db levels and the sound still sound low due to where it in the human audio range.Oct 02 00:24
oiaohmdecnet: its the same reason why the advertisements on tv can sound louder than the main program because the advertisement  can have had aggressive range compression. Oct 02 00:26
oiaohmdecnet: bad part is every video can have a uniquely set to no set dyanmic range compression.   The files that sound low are  normally are more natural recorded without dynamic compression.   Oct 02 00:28
oiaohmA lot of people are surprised to find places like churches and theaters having a dynamic range compression device on their sound system that is adjusted on usage case to make the sound appear louder to the crowd while in fact using a lower volume/db.Oct 02 00:29
decnetPulse Audio + Dynamic range compression ?Oct 02 00:30
oiaohmdecnet:  Note the gif  different time frames have different amount of dynamic range compression applied by default.Oct 02 00:31
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Dynamic range compression - WikipediaOct 02 00:31
oiaohmYou don't want to apply too much Dynamic range compression either or you will totally ruin the audio.Oct 02 00:32
decnetI know, i tried on some videos that had too much effects that drowned out the audio.Oct 02 00:32
decnetaudio == dialogOct 02 00:32
oiaohmTo be correct different time frames different general level of dyanamic range compression applied.   But in every time frame of production you get outsiders.Oct 02 00:33
oiaohmA good dynamic range compression device in a hall has decompression option as well.Oct 02 00:33
MrGreenFriendoiaohm,  Youtube now has Loudness-Normalization built-in. Much better than the old Peak-Normalization.Oct 02 00:34
oiaohmYes you have rapid change presets at the sound desk.Oct 02 00:34
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: even than that can screw up and push particular vldeos audio higher than it should be.Oct 02 00:34
oiaohmAudio is a true pain in the ass to level mix.Oct 02 00:35
oiaohmYes Loudness Normalization is to blame why some Youtube video the voice is stuffed because the auto guess has screwed up.Oct 02 00:36
decnetI got the effects-drowning-out-the-dialog issue mostly corrected in VLC, no similar options in MPV.Oct 02 00:38
MrGreenFrienddecnet, what option did u use in VLC?Oct 02 00:39
decnetHold on ..Oct 02 00:40
MrGreenFrienderr, use to do DRCOct 02 00:40
MrGreenFriendDRC *should* be easy to do by the end-user, which is why it is sooo stupid that Record companies apply so much DRC/clipping to songsOct 02 00:41
XRevan86kaniini: was that registered by you?Oct 02 00:42
-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-Notices by - LoadAverageOct 02 00:42
oiaohmdecnet:   most people are not aware we have the db scale and the phon scale.     db is the hardware and sound wave pressure(how likely it will damage ears).     phon scale what on average will sound the same loudness to a human. Oct 02 00:43

-TechrightsBot-tr/ | How to Fix Movies with Loud Action Music and Low Dialogue VolumeOct 02 00:43
decnetI use a pair of speakers, stops the ears ringing after too long on the earphones.Oct 02 00:44
oiaohmdecnet: ears ringing you need to check the db level of your earphones.Oct 02 00:44
MrGreenFrienddecnet,  if u are talking about movies, low Dialogue has to do with a low center channel (when it is down-mixed -> 2-channel)Oct 02 00:45
decnetI need to have more sense, too much heavy metal at full blast :[Oct 02 00:45
oiaohmPeople always wonder why I use quite cheap earphones.Oct 02 00:45
MrGreenFrienddecnet,  so u should be able to raise the center-channel, in the 5.1 speaker setttingsOct 02 00:46
oiaohmLot of the cheap drivers are not able to make high db even if you set them wrong.Oct 02 00:46
oiaohmdecnet: you can be giving yourself progressive industral deafness by having db too high.Oct 02 00:46
decnetYea, I got the dialog issue fixxed, i want the same actual (as heard) volume on all apps, browser, VLC, MPV regardless of source.Oct 02 00:47
oiaohmThere is a second horrible one on older movies.   Older speakers were not great at particular ranges so when you designed the audio in movies for that you also resulted in the effects being loud on modern speakers as well.Oct 02 00:48
oiaohmWhy because modern speakers are way better in those ranges that use to be weak.Oct 02 00:48
oiaohmWe have a calibration standards for video colors we don't in fact have a proper one of those for audio. Oct 02 00:49
MrGreenFrienddecnet, maybe try VLC 'stereo output mode: headphones'Oct 02 00:49
oiaohmdecnet: time frame of when a video was make will be a important factor.Oct 02 00:50
oiaohmmake/madeOct 02 00:50
MrGreenFrienddecnet,  how did u fix Dialogue issue?Oct 02 00:50
decnet 02 00:50
decnetHelps with one of those actions with lots of explosions :]Oct 02 00:51
MrGreenFriendoh, okay. goodOct 02 00:51
oiaohmdecnet: that compression there is dynamic range compression.   Oct 02 00:51
oiaohmdecnet: but the problem is that is a per audio setting.Oct 02 00:52
MrGreenFrienddecnet, 02 00:52
-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-Cool Guys Don't Look At Explosions - YouTubeOct 02 00:52
oiaohmI cannot get you away from having to change settings with different audio items.Oct 02 00:52
decnetMrGreenFriend asked about fixing loud effects muffling audio.Oct 02 00:53
oiaohmA lot of people do themselves long term harm pushing earphone and speaker system volume too high  in db instead of adjusting the compression.Oct 02 00:53
oiaohmAdjusting the compression moves the phon value not the db valume.Oct 02 00:53
decnetThe second problem, is how to get the same volume from all devices regardless of the actual audio source.Oct 02 00:53
oiaohmvalume/valueOct 02 00:53
oiaohmdecnet: you cannot.  There there no correction standard.Oct 02 00:54
decneti know, I was just wondering, thanks for the discussion.Oct 02 00:54
oiaohmdecnet: even in db the phyiscall different speaker makes have different sound curves and that is before you get to phon.Oct 02 00:55
MrGreenFriendoiaohm, 02 00:55
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: that is so right.Oct 02 00:56
decnetI got one better, I once charged a doctor for unhiding the menu at the top of msWord ..Oct 02 00:57
oiaohmA lot of people sell that they can make the sound appear the same on all the devices.Oct 02 00:57
oiaohmWhen in reality due to lack of standard you cannot.Oct 02 00:57
oiaohmIf we had equal to icc profile for audio it might be possible.Oct 02 00:57
decnetI know, it's just on my wish list. First the machine would have to detect the sound coming out of the speakers then adjust all the volume controls on the machine, simples ;]Oct 02 00:58
oiaohmbecause you would have each device make a profile of it output shape then use that to correct incomming audio to everything is right.Oct 02 00:58
oiaohmbut there is no standard like that for audio.Oct 02 00:58
oiaohmdecnet: yep we would need a standard calibration device as well that does not exist either.Oct 02 00:59
oiaohmI know what you are asking for and I would love to have it as it would make my life at times a million times simpler.Oct 02 01:00

oiaohmdecnet: here is the horrible thing.   Lets say I am running a hall presenting something and a work place health and safety inspect happens to be in the hall(they don't tell you they are there) and some sound out speaker goes db too high say hello to 30000 dollar fine here in Australia.Oct 02 01:02
oiaohmdecnet: I would really like a standard as it could save me from fines.Oct 02 01:03
decnetWell, obviously you would take great care in such a situation. Although your average metal head wouldn't notice :[Oct 02 01:03
oiaohmThis also explains why when a person like me is operating a sound desk and someone else touches  the controls I am ready to kill them.Oct 02 01:04
oiaohmI can have spent over 8 hours setting the sound desk inside legal limitations for the presentation.Oct 02 01:05
oiaohmdecnet: your average metal head band is normally the worse to work with they have the idea they need to lift volume instead of adjust compression.   Volume=db on most devices(the thing you get fined for breaching) and compression = modify phon. Oct 02 01:07
MrGreenFriendoiaohm, what headphones do u use?Oct 02 01:07
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: fairly cheap ones from aliexpress.Oct 02 01:07
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: less than 15 AUD.Oct 02 01:07
MrGreenFriend:)Oct 02 01:08
oiaohmI normally go for full ear cover with Microphone.   Not that I use the microphone just makes them simple to put in the right way round quickly.Oct 02 01:09
oiaohmMrGreenFriend:  this is what I am using right now.   As you can see quite cheap.Oct 02 01:12

oiaohmUnless you go really expensive wired always beats wireless.Oct 02 01:14
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: wow on what.    How cheap or how good of design?Oct 02 01:15
MrGreenFriendboth  :)Oct 02 01:15
oiaohmI gave up on really expensive headsets a long time ago after I lost 3 sets to having transport boxes put on them.Oct 02 01:16
oiaohmSo near enough came good enough.Oct 02 01:16

<--decnet has quit (Quit: Leaving)Oct 02 01:17
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: yes more expensive sets than I use can give a better range.   For listening to training videos, basic tuning stuff the decent cheap ones are good enough.Oct 02 01:19
oiaohmBeing cheap someone crushes them you don't care too much.Oct 02 01:20
MrGreenFriendyupOct 02 01:22
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: I do have a basic list of features a headset has to have.  1 must have decent cable.  2 that cable better only connect to one side(connect to two sides will break).  3 must have a volume control on the headset not in the lead.Oct 02 01:22
oiaohmand of course must have a mic so I can pick them up in the dark and put them on right way round.Oct 02 01:23
MrGreenFriendu could just put tape/etc on one side, instead of a micOct 02 01:23
oiaohmI want to be able to grab another one off the shelf it one pair breaks and I don't have to change anything.Oct 02 01:24
oiaohmand having the mic adds less than 1 AUD to the cost.Oct 02 01:24
oiaohmThat 1 -4 of my features is in my priority order.Oct 02 01:25
oiaohmdecent cable is more important that most of the other features.   Then cable to 1 side is next important feature,   then volume control then mic.Oct 02 01:26
oiaohmMrGreenFriend: on these really cheap ones I do recommend using a good quality socket /plug combination on a short lead.   There plugs when you are inserting and removing them every day have bad habit of tip snap off because they are not filled.Oct 02 01:29
oiaohmThat is really the only down side of these really cheap ones and those short adapters are almost indestructible.Oct 02 01:30
oiaohmYou get expensive headsets with a lot worse defects.Oct 02 01:31
oiaohmMrGreenFriend:  << I guess when I said cheap you were thinking these bits of true cheap junk.Oct 02 01:34

MrGreenFriendyeh, impressive that $6 headphones are good enough to useOct 02 01:36
oiaohmThere are cases I would spend more.  Like these are tempting if I was in fact using the microphone just to have a microphone offswitch on the headset.Oct 02 01:40

oiaohmOther than mic quality of course.Oct 02 01:41
oiaohmI am not a person who spends more than 30 USD on a headset.  Spending more than 10 USD is exception not the rule on a headset for me.Oct 02 01:43
