The Audio object does not register an increase in volume, when I set a sound file's dB level above 0. This prevents me from increasing the volume of my sound files above their original level. I have tried setting dB levels, both in the initial Audio "Play" action, and in the Audio "Set ("tag") volume" action. Minus values still work, but plus values are not registered above 0.
Attach a Capx
Description of Capx
This capx plays a simple countdown audio track (e.g. 10... 9... 8... etc), in the "On start of layout" event. It has three buttons, which are all labelled. The first will reduce the audio tracks dB level to -20, the second will reset the dB level to 0, and the third will set it to +50.
Steps to Reproduce Bug
- To test the Audio "Play" action: (1) Enable one of the Audio "Play" actions (in the "On start of layout" event) and disable the other two. (2) Try step 1 for all three versions and you'll notice that dB settings above 0 do not sound any louder.
- To test the Audio "Set ("tag") volume" action: (1) Enable the Audio "Play" action with it's dB level set to 0 (in the "On start of layout" event) and disable the other 2 options (note: this is currently set as the default option). (2) Run the layout and press the "Lower volume" / "Reset volume" / "Raise volume" buttons. Once again you will notice that dB settings above 0 do not register as being any louder.
Setting an audio files dB level above 0 has no affect on the volume of the audio track.
When increasing the audio files dB level above 0, I had expected the volume to increase.
