OVERVIEW:

USERS CAN NOW EASILY CREATE THEIR OWN CUSTOM VOICE PACKS FOR MSFS FS2CREW PRODUCTS.

USING OUR NEW CUSTOM VOICE RECORDER TOOL, CREATING NEW VOICE SETS WITH YOUR OWN VOICE IS VERY EASY!

USERS CAN SEND THEIR RECORDINGS TO THE FS2CREW TEAM, AND WE WILL INSERT YOUR SOUNDS INTO THE PROGRAM!

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1: RECORD YOUR NEW VOICE SET!

  1. DOWNLOAD THE FS2CREW VOICE RECORDER TOOL.

    [THE TOOL IS CURRENTLY IN A PUBLIC BETA.  THE DOWNLOAD LINK IS IN OUR DISCORD CHANNEL]

  2. THE INSTALLER WILL RUN SILENTLY.  A NEW ICON WILL BE CREATED ON YOUR DESKTOP.
  3. LAUNCH THE FS2CREW RECORDING TOOL VIA THE DESKTOP ICON.

  4. GO TO THE PROJECTS MENU AND SELECT THE DESIRED PROJECT FOR YOUR FS2CREW PRODUCT.

     

  5. FOLLOW THE ON SCREEN PROMPTS TO RECORD EACH LINE/WORD.
  6. YOUR RECORDING WILL AUTOMATICALLY PLAY BACK AFTER YOU RECORD IT SO YOU CAN TEST FOR QUALITY.
  7. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU RECORD EACH SESSION IN A SINGLE SITTING TO ENSURE THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE REMAINS CONSISTENT.  
  8. ENSURE THERE IS NO BACKGROUND SOUND (EXAMPLE: AIR CONDITIONING NOISE).
  9. GO SLOWLY.  DON’T TRY TO RECORD TOO FAST OR YOU MAY TRIP UP THE PROGRAM.
  10. IF YOU’RE NOT SURE WHAT SPEAKING STYLE TO USE, WATCH  COCKPIT VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE TO GET A SENSE OF HOW YOU SHOULD TRY TO SOUND.
  11. YOUR RECORDINGS WILL BE SAVED TO YOUR DESKTOP IN A NEW FOLDER CALLED “FS2CREW RECORDING TOOL”.

  12. THAT FOLDER WILL CONTAIN A SUB-FOLDER MATCHING THE PROJECTS NAME.  YOUR RECORDINGS WILL BE SAVED THERE.  ONLY UPLOAD THIS FOLDER TO FS2CREW.  WE DON’T NEED THE JSON OR TMP FILES.

  13. THERE IS A JSON FILE LOCATED IN THE FOLDER.  DO NOT DELETE THE JSON FILE.  ALL THAT FILE DOES IS KEEP TRACK OF WHICH SOUNDS YOU HAVE RECORDED.

 

STEP 2: POLISH YOUR VOICE SET!

  1. IT’S CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU LISTEN TO YOUR OWN RECORDINGS TO ENSURE THEY SOUND GOOD.
  2. YOU CAN USE AN AUDIO TOOL LIKE ADOBE AUDITION (OR ANY AUDIO TOOL OF YOUR CHOICE) TO EDIT YOUR SOUND FILES AS DESIRED.  FEEL FREE TO ADD FILTER EFFECTS.  
  3. TRY TO REMOVE ANY DEAD AIR AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF YOUR RECORDINGS.

 

OPTIONAL:

YOU CAN TEST YOUR SOUND FILES LIVE IN GAME BY OVERWRITING ANY PRE-EXISTING VOICE SET.

HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NEED TO ADD THE SAME PREFIX TO YOUR SOUND FILES TO MATCH THE ORIGINAL SOUND FILE.

TO SAVE TIME, YOU CAN USE A PROGRAM LIKE “FILE RENAMER” TO EASILY ADD A PREFIX TO A LIST OF FILES VIA A BATCH JOB.

THE ORIGINAL FS2CREW SOUND FILES ARE IN .OGG FORMAT.

THEY ARE LOCATED HERE:

C:Program Files (x86) [FS2CREW PRODUCT NAME] binAudio

 

STEP 3: SEND US YOUR RECORDINGS!

  1. WHEN YOUR VOICE PACK IS COMPLETE, PUT THE SOUND FOLDER CONTAINING YOUR AUDIO IN A ZIP FILE AND SEND IT TO US VIA WETRANSFER.COM
  2. USE THE ‘GET TRANSFER LINK OPTION“.

  3. SEND US A SUPPORT TICKET VIA THE “CONTACT US” PAGE ON THE FS2CREW WEBSITE, AND PASTE THE “TRANSFER LINK” INTO THE TICKET.

  4. WE WILL SCAN AND CHECK YOUR SOUND FILES FOR QUALITY, AND THEN PACKAGE THEM INTO THE NEXT SOFTWARE UPDATE FOR DISTRIBUTION.
  5. IF DESIRED, YOU CAN DELETE THE FOLDER ON YOUR DESKTOP THAT HOLDS YOUR RECORDED AUDIO.
