Hello there,

I'm pretty new to all this but I'm instantly hooked.
I still have to figure out a lot of things especially on the Blorb-making tool.
Is there a manual for it?

Thank you for your great work,
Novoxxx from Germany

No manual, no...Borbifier isn't too hard to use, but its a bit buggy. I haven't heard from the guy who wrote it in awhile...I'm hoping it gets a bug-fix soon...

This topic wouldn't hurt to read:

http://www.gersic.com/soundborb/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3

It describes how to make a borb using a text editor...

Ok

thank you for now... I have read the thread you was talking about.
I'm afraid I still do not understand the "sad/happy" and "intesity" enough.

Every borb has 3 main "moods"... right?
So will the neutral sound play while the sad sound does?
Or will they play after each other because it is either "sad->neutral->happy" ?

Now what's the intensity for... Does it control how often the "single shot" (random) sounds will play?
Can I define a single shot sound to link to a special mood? Hmm ... still a lot of open questions...

Thx

Hey Novoxxx,

There are two sliders on Sound Borb, Intensity and Happiness. The Intensity slider controls the volume level of any sound that is marked as an intensity sound in the .dat file. The Happiness slider controls the volume level of any sound that is marked as either Sad or Happy in the .dat file. When the Happiness slider is all the way to the left, Sad sounds are audible, and when the Happiness slider is all the way to the right, Happy sounds are audible. Other spots on the slider give varying levels of either sound. Neutral sounds are not controlled by the Happiness slider...

Yes, just set looping to false, random to true, and mood to Happy or Sad

Hope that helps...

Thanks,
Tom

Hi there,

thanks for the explanation... It was very useful to me.

Now here's my thoughts. It is great to have an easy to use tool and I like the concept. But I am a sound nerd and even after a one night session I want the total controll... Rolling Eyes

A random factor would be nice, to be able to give each sound diffrent chances to be played. A volume for the sounds would be handy too. It would be much easier to adjust levels inside the borb tool.
Then I would like to make the sad and happy area less strict. The idea would be to let the sad and happy sounds play even when the slider is not 100% on one of he corners...

Hope you don't mind me brainstorming here...
Greets,

Those are good ideas...I'm thinking the next version will have a lot of this sort of functionality...

Sorry for not having a good manual as of yet. Still I've dusted off tthe Borbifier source and I'm conducting severe tests to make sure and secure that it works as it should. Once that is done and a manual is written then I'll hand out version 1.1, please bare with the bugs.
