Foreword


Beneath the surface of skyrim audio..there`s a treasure to be found!


For centuries no one was able to reveal the place it has been hidden


Once upon a time a brave magician named Foggypath took a closer look at the rare audio books in the library of the Elder Scrolls


Indeed he found the clues leading him to the place those valuables has been dig into


it was the castle of the long lost sound masters


He accomplished his long and dangerous journey to reach the abandoned holdfast..only to discover it`s terrible shape


After a long time creeping and crawling through the ruins, he finally started to destroy the castles basement in order to bring out the concealed jewels and gold coins into the daylight


Not only that, he also decided to craft some fine pieces of his own..which are said to even exceed the hoard he has found


The legend says, he eventually comes back to the place to excavate more of his finding


It is now about time to share his discoveries with all the companions of skyrim

detailed description



Mod description by user named LuisCypherrr


It makes it easier to hear the special sound characteristics of each sample. Excessive amounts of sub bass were removed that would overpower or muddy the rest of the sample.


Special sound characteristics were additionally emphasised via EQ. For example, when a dragon lands you can clearly hear stones flying around instead of only the thump in vanilla. In Dwemer Ruins pipes and steam noises are easier to hear, which were masked by an overdone bass rumble in vanilla.


As you can see, the vanilla sound is loud in the beginning but its volume falls off rapidly. In game, you will only hear a small part of the sample, because the quieter parts will get masked by other game sounds. The modded sample shows a slower drop in volume, allowing you to hear "more" of the sample.


Several samples that were too quiet and almost unnoticable in vanilla were made louder.


Several volume spikes were reduced, the overall sound experience should be easier on your ears.


And much more!


Great mod, give it a try!



What has been done to those nasty samples?



applied psycho-acoustics to calculate precise harmonics that are related to the fundamental tones of sound


increased intelligibility, restored harmonics and improved clarity...recaptured natural sparkle and punch


added convolution reverb with reference to environment,featuring top quality samples of real spaces


utilized high end analog emulation bass compressor, mid, high, and harmonic processing


applied mid side processing adding depth and changing width on stereo samples


used various Equalizer individually to shape and give character to the sound


used high quality vintage channel analog compression for altering tone


attenuated ground loop hum, DC offset, and low-frequency rumble


reduced some reverb events to get rid of unwanted room info


regulated the amount of phase-compensated lows and highs


added subtle tube saturation to add air and imaging


used subtle delay individually, where needed


created the effect of lower,deeper bass


reduced excess sibilance “ess”+“shh”


zero crossing point looping






to be less technical here are some of the benefits of this mod



clearer samples, removed nasty ringing and other bad sounding parts among other things to make it more pleasant to the ear


reverb/delay..added better room info to the samples..for example birds sound like their actually between trees


of course this is not overdone to keep it all as natural and realistic as possible..however you'll notice it


the clarity when multiple samples are played at the same time, there is far less masking happening


for example,thunder played during heavy snowstorm/wind,you will hear any sound very clear


detailed tone as a result of altering frequencies and compression methods


increased brilliance and presence in otherwise dull samples


no unwanted pops/clicks/crackle while playing loops


less boomy,hum free,accurate and precise bass


no conflicts between other mods!


it is CTD free!








Afterword


let me know if there are some issues, so i can fix them


let me know if you like or dislike this mod..leave a comment..thx for taking care..have fun!
