80db max noise detector or fixer (or something like that)?
« on: December 07, 2008, 06:26:44 AM »

hi,
got an interesting question...

sometimes noise gets really noisy here and I can't tell if the speaker is too loud / or someone is speaking waay too loud, or needs to reduce down speaker volume...

is there an app or utility which :

a) from microphone, reduce down input from 100db to 70db (or below) ... ?
b) from speaker, if someone speaks too loud, auto-adjust speaker volume to max 80db. (Cut off anything above 80db.) ?

for PC / Intel 80x86/Windows XP.

You mean something like a compressor/limiter for voice chat? Or am I completely nuts?

hi,

you play some sound or Mp3 music. for 30 secs -- 30-40db and for 10 secs - 90-100db.

what i would like is during the 10secs, <something> would auto-detect the loudness at 90-100db range during the 10 secs and then lower speaker volume and after the 10 secs, put back volume to normal

any idea?

I can do it... Can you pop into IRC so we can sort it out?

What you really should do is process your mp3 library with ReplayGain, and use an mp3 player than supports RG :)

Ah, I thought you only meant for MP3 playback, sorry.
