Recalbox 7.0

Starting music and background music are "too loud"

  • Sup folks.

    I don't know if any of you have this problem, but on my TV at home, the startup music is way to loud. I've tested on many volume levels on my tv, and any volume configuration between 55% and 90% at EmulatonStation(50% makes Emulationstation way too quiet and games become almost without sound)

    Am I the only one with this minor issue? Every time I quit a game, i have to be prepared to lower down the sound of my TV.

    I don't know if there is a feature request open to lower the default background music level(by editing the files, or having a separated relative volume) or to have a separated audio level control to ES.

  • @nwildner idem.
    The most simply way, edit video to lower sound level?
    The video is here: /recalbox/system/resources/splash

  • @lbr59 i think a simple way to do it is by editing the files with Audacity.

  • Ihad the same problem. As @LBR59 said, the video is located here:
    If you are on Linux (but I can imagine ffmpeg tools are also available on windows), this simple command line will create "outputfile.mp4" with the sound lowered:
    ffmpeg -i recalboxintro.mp4 -vcodec copy -strict -2 -af "volume=-15dB" outputfile.mp4
    Hope it may help
