Audio inconsistencies mean that my users are turning their volume up and down and sometimes I’m scaring them with uncomfortably loud volume after a previously quiet clip
A colored audio meter on the recorder (with target audio levels) so I can make sure my voice is “just right.”
(edit to original post based on feedback) Another use case with the same underlying problem is normalizing audio across media with a editor based solution
Instead of fixing the problem they added a bandaid
We probably should have broken this out into 2 ideas. Before we know which way to go with this, we’d like to get additional clarity on the problems to solve. This idea got a lot of votes so we didn’t want to wait until the next idea round-up to get clarity.
From the feedback we heard two problems:
While recording screen, I want to know my audio level is in the target range so my users aren’t having to change their volume
I don’t want my audience to have to adjust their volume during my video because of inconsistent audi levels. I’d like a way to normalize the audio levels of some or all my audio media in my project
We’d appreciate if you could help us out here. We’ll update the status on idea once we have that additional information.
With respect, you need to read this entire thread and the threads merged into it. Multiple people have submitted very detailed technical requests, more details in fact than your survey. This thread and the threads merged into it go back multiple years, please read the whole thing, many of us have contributed many details. Perhaps you could ask questions about some of the very detailed requests posted previously. Thank you.
From Wikipedia- Virtual Studio Technology (VST) is a software interface that integrates software audio synthesizer and effect plugins with audio editors and recording systems. VST and similar technologies use digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware in software. Thousands of plugins exist, both commercial and freeware, and a large number of audio applications support VST under license from its creator, Steinberg.
