Re: IRLP automated system announcements - Audio Levels?

If you can't upgrade or have the old software, put in a "pad" (pot) between the node and the radio and pad the overall audio (man talking in the box) down to a comfortable level, then run the slider for the user level up where you want it.

I realize this is a hardware fix and in most cases, it might be more appropriate to just upgrade the software.

In my case it's easy because I plug the node into a port on a controller, so I set the port level to the "man in the box" level, and then adjust the user's voice with the slider in the node software for where I want it.

If the level of the audio announcements is significantly higher that the
node audio, you may have an old script on your node. Some of the old
scripts that mixed the "node number 1 2 3 4, link active" scripts have
been replaced. They used to be VERY overbearing.

There is no way to adjust just the audio of the announcements. I would
suggest that the nodes you are connecting to are sending weaker than
normal audio, and you have turned yours up too loud to compensate. When
adjusted right, the announcements should sound the same as the audio
coming in.

Hello Group;

Is there a way to control the audio level (volume) for system
automated messages that is being fed to the repeater? i.e. Something
like a "Node 1234 CONNECTED" message - can the level of that be
reduced so that it still plays, but isn't too loud and overbearing?
Does one of the volume sliders in Alsamixer control that audio line,
separate from normal voice audio?

Thank you - Tim.
