View Full Version : How do we control the sound effects?

I mean, the echo/reverb etc?
Haven't found that in tutorial, but maybe i've missed it somewhere.

I love the sound effects of the new engine, probably i'll make a track inside a concert hall someday :D

EDIT: will you also implement some sort of phaser/flanger effects when the car is distant from camera (in the replay especially)? In real life the sound of car goes and reflects through a lot of "obstacles" which changes its phase, and makes a little flanger appear.

The reverb is currently calculated by the AIW corridors. I'm sure this will get some attention when we do the AIW tutorial :) .

No spotter sound for me, I use stereo monitors for speakers, Do I need 5.1 to get the spotter?

So what? narrow corridors makes it echo?

Yes, the edge end of the collision corridor controls the reverb right now (typically if it's shorter than the max length we can assume there is some kind of wall there)--closer the car is to it the more reverb you get. We also have plans to add reverb zones to increase reverb in tunnel-like areas--not sure when this will make it in though...

A question, so it's clear, the reverb/echoing is managed by the rF2 Engine for the outside sounds.
But when you are in cockpit, is there a "post" processing on sounds to get more "loud/echoing" on the inside sounds or not? (not sure if I'm clear).
In another words, do I need to add "cockpit closed" effect on my on-board sounds or is it managed/added by rF2 now?

From what I understand it is managed by rF2 and calculated based on the track being driven.
