A few days ago I saw this amazing guide on how to not make your ears bleed in the game: >>
Since tinnitus and hear loss is super dangerous I wanted to make another guide to help you guys not lose your hearing and maybe hear a step or two more in the game.
The GUIDE (f you peacekeeper)
We are gonna use another setup and the software we are gonna use is called VoiceMeeter Banana and since most of us don't have dedicated sound cards we are gonna use another tool called VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device from the same guys. All the software is free to use unless you wanna donate to this amazing team.
VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device:
Step 1: Download and install VoiceMeeter Banana
Step 2: Download an install VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Device
Step 3: Restart PC
Step 4: Go to Sound Settings and click on Sound Control Panel
Step 5: Scroll down an make CABLE Input your default audio device.
Had one step too much don't wanna change everything. xD
Step 7: Right click the CABLE Input and select properties, go to advance tab and change Default Format to 16bit, 48000hz. If you leave it at 24bit you will probably experience sound lag in game bcs the size is too big. Don't worry though it will not affect your sound quality.
Step 8: Do the same 16bit, 48000hz for your headphones in my case its the Speakers PRO just above Cable Input.
Step 9: Type Banana in your search and open Voicemeeter banana. Careful though if you don't type banana you could end up with basic Voicemeeter which doesn't have compression.
Step 10: Top Left under Hardware Input put WDM: CABLE Output (VB-Audio Virtual Cable) and than top right find A1, click there and find WDM: Your Headphones here** in my case its Speakers (PRO).
Step 11: Now comes the sweet part of tuning up your compression. I was testing a bit and found that the compression ratio of 3 with -3dB works fine so guns don't scare the shit out of you and you having hearing like you are wearing a
Have fun, and don't kill me when I wiggle pls. 🙂
