What are people's thoughts on the new voice packs?

16 posts in this topic

Posted

So I was playing around with the new voice packs and while some of them sounded interesting it seems like all of the voices by in large were a bunch of monosyllabic unintelligible grunts or screams which didn't really hold up in quality to the original voices.  Like I founds some cool voices that seemed interesting on some sound effects but others in the same voice pack sounded cringe worthy.  like some of the famale voices when you first start riding your horse the "giddy up horsie" sounds were these odd sounding grunts or screams that sounded incredibly awkward or wierd/out of place.  Some even sounded like the character was having a siezure or throwing a tantrum. 

The other annoying thing was that the "preview" sounds in the character customizer were very limited and strange and didn't seem to give an accurate depiction of the voice. 

But then again I could just be being a nit picky bastard.  What are your thoughts on the new voices?

Really dislike the way it only shows you the emote sounds, not the combat sounds. Accidentally gave my tamer a voice deeper than schwarzenegger and when she falls off a horse she sounds like an old man wheezing to death. 

I don't have any problems with the voices they gave, but they really need to show how they actually sound in the beauty shop.

Yeah.

If you want to try them a bit further you can select the voice, then go to the actions menu (still on the editor) and make the character do the other emotes, such as the three combat ones.

But it's still incomplete as the character makes very little sound and you end up not knowing exactly what you're choosing. And yes, I also noticed that the sound is incoherent even in the same voice. Some actions actually sound ok or appealing, but then there's one in which you get a grunt. I think it's 5 or 6, for instance, that the female voice is quite "cuddly" (if one can define a voice as cuddly) but if you choose the emote she rejects/says no to something it comes out as an orc growling.

I think it was pointless considering it's only client side.
