"Dynamic Range" audio settings: tested and demonstrated - Rainbow Six Siege

9095 ratings | 333094 views
I have had a lot of requests to cover the best settings options for Rainbow Six Siege so let's kick things off with the audio settings. The most confusing option here is the Dynamic Range. The in-game description explains nothing, so in this video I will be testing out the different settings to see exactly how different types of sounds are affected at different ranges.

I used Night Mode, but when once i had a situation where someone blew up a hole in the wall next to me, and I died because I did not hear it, i've changed it back to hi-fi

On Hi-Fi, the sound of barricades smashing, or breach charges being used can be tracked down. On TV it's possible but harder. On Night Mode, you can faintly hear them but can't know from where as its too low

On HiFi, you can tell more easily where the sounds are coming from. On Night Mode, they are more "2D"ish
░KenLinx░ (14 days ago)
How does this demonstrate that Night is the best mode? It will really mess with you if someone is right next to you and you think they are further away. The inconsistency with the closer and further sounds in Night mode is the reason most pros choose TV.
omgwtfrofltomato (19 days ago)
like the aspect ratio video, you've once again, set up tests that dont resemble actual in game scenarios. this information isnt practical. theyre not bad results, just obvious? and more importantly do not test for the average in game scenario. i wouldve liked to seen tests of you in a different room, on a different floor. in a room, same floor, but 2 rooms away. below an enemy with and without a hole in the roof. all the tests you did represented a scenario where the enemy is in front of you. at that point u dont rely on sound you just kill em. please adjust your tests to produce results that resemble common fighting scenarios.

Its actually harder to tell where sound is coming from if you use tv or night mode

I think the test that would have mattered would have been enemy footsteps while you are shooting. Thats the reason why i play night mode.

Night mode compresses the dynamic range. Now it will depend on your output speakers, quality of drivers, and what extra software filter/eq settings are applied. You cant just assume it sounds all the same. Your sound card also makes a difference. Here merely all that was was tested was left and right channels and loudness. However pay attention to the audio tapers, and clarity. There IS a difference. However most cant tell, their ears are too lazy to tell. This usually matters more to audiophiles. P.s. also remember is game there are ALOT of sounds at once. Dynamic makes a difference here too. But compression also changes if you switch it to say night mode so they become part of a closer frequency which may in fact muddle them together.

Rivenor Black thank you. anywhere i can read up on more detail?
Simon Verhoeven (1 month ago)
Would it work to download a compressor tool en crank it, so that the dynamic range gets even smaller?
Marcel89 (1 month ago)
so basically with night mode you can still hear quieter sounds while loud sounds are played?
KillaKami (27 days ago)
Marcel89 loud sounds are quieter, and quiet sounds are unaffected.

On a related note, i dont know if that has happened to you but....(and a big stinky one at that) i sometimes have the problem that sounds from upstairs sound like they are comming from downstairs and vice versa. Any idea what that is, and why that happens?

I've been using Night Mode for a while because it does make those loud sounds quieter. I don't want to deafen myself trying to hear quiet sounds over loud sounds, anyway. I do think I have lost positional accuracy, however.

Night mode for sure. I always get ran out on and I mostly blame it on how loud my gun is whilst they’re running out. I main Lion/Jackal and their guns are pretty fucking loud, especially Lions.

+Rogue-9 Hello, since you configured Night mode, did you take advantage and improve your gaming?? Thnkss
Revierie (3 months ago)
I use tv to get a nice blend of the two. All information is important, so when I use tv it seems to equal them out a bit imo. Just my opinion though.

I’ve been using Hi-Fi for ages and it only worsened my gameplay as it makes some noises extremely loud like the bullets your shoot and rustling sounds you hear when people move. it’s kind of pointless because High Elo players are able to counter that. on the other hand, Night-Mode is alternatively better due to the fact that it lessens the excessive sounds such as your bullets, and makes footsteps louder when they’re close to you. You’ll notice that when you’re roaming or tracking, you’ll hear more footsteps often which is crucial. Overall, Night-Mode is significantly better due to the fact that you can increase your ingame volume and not be disturbed by the excessive sounds you hear from Hi-Fi
I actually play on night mode before this video and it’s nice to know that it’s the best
TJM99 (3 months ago)
It drives me mad when I can't even tell where the sounds are coming from because it sounds like its straight ahead but it's actually under me, or just some other crap, this is with a headset too.

Interesting video, Rogue. Just wondering if Hi-Fi could make it easier to track enemies through walls, though.

also I tried night mode day one becaUse I played it at night and it just sounds Vetter for anyone to creep up on me... who knew that was an advantage until present

Do playing siege without HUD on. practically pro league play. I tried the red pill and I never went back after that. Check out my videos of that experience guys for tips and tricks and team coordination. add the players I play with if you want. thanks guys. also subscribe and leave a comment in some of the vids for your chance to win a $50 psn reward card. Have a nice day ya grigzzly bastards :D

Doom2508 (4 months ago)
Audio Engineer here! What its basicly doing (like you already found out) is it makes loud stuff quieter while leaving the already quiet sounds alone, this lets you turn up the over all volume so you're essentially making the quiet things louder while making the loud things a more reasonable level. What you are sacrificing however is being able to hear more accurately how far away your enemy is. This doesn't seem like a massive issue in this game but in CSGO the footstep sounds are extremely accurate with a good pair of open backed headphones, honestly it feels like wall hacking at times because the sound of just one footstep can tell you exactly where they are. Turning down the dynamic range on CS:GO would completely remove that because they sound the same whether they are 5 or 10 meters away.

With night mode you can turn up your sound higher to better hear footsteps because the load isn't as loud.

You have music volume at 60..but with music on, i hear the annoying pumping sound when the time is running out at the end of a match. Does it not bother you?
Naz95K (4 months ago)
i usualy listen to music in the back ground... so i dont use the ingame sound lmao hearing your enemy is over rated in my opinion unless you are playing ranked

Officially playing in night mode hoping for improvement in awareness since I "sound whore" so much and as a console controller player I'm now trying out a ridiculously high sensitivity cause when I play mouse and keyboard on my friends pc I notice controlling recoil is easy with a high dpi so in theory it should be similar with a controller and I hope to see results as I begin testing it right now in casual
Moritz Paul (4 months ago)
Im pretty shure that the nightmode cuts the sub frequencies and the extreme low end, since those frequencies penetrate your houses walls the most, and you can hear them the furthest

when you said "loud sounds don't give important information" that's a lie, i'm pretty sure u can hear gun shots from further than the steps (even sprinting) so and enemy might be in a place and shot, you wouldn't hear him. Better have the one that makes sounds higher imo, only downside would be if u are being surrounded by guns and explosions (you wouldn't hear the steps)

Eric Rudd (4 months ago)
Hi Rogue-9....I think it's great that you took this experiment on. Nice job. I listened to your tests and it seems you came to an accurate conclusion....switching from HI thru TV to Night seems to decrease dynamic range. As a point of background...I worked as a recording engineer for over 25 years. I would like to point out a slight wrinkle in your science. Most people misuse the term "db." The term decibel is meaningless without mentioning a "reference." And the science is a little complicated. I'll try to give a couple of examples. Almost all digital meters....like the one used in your editing software...display decibels as "dbFS." "Full-scale" is the reference in this case. What that means is....when the meter has reached "zero" (0), there is no amount of digital 1's and 0's that will make the sound any louder. The sound will just become distorted because once the sound reaches "zero" the waveform will just be cut off....it simply clips. Our ears are tricky things. When we determine that a sound is "loud", our ears actually are responding to the AVERAGE level of the sound, not the peaks. And your digital meters reflect this phenomenon. For example, you can set the input on your digital recorder to a certain level, then tap your pencil on the side of your desk next to the mic. Your meter might "peak" at zero or above, but to your ears, the sound is not "loud." It's because the average level of your pencil hitting the desk is not that high...the peak is, however. Back a few years ago...many pieces of audio gear at meters with needles on them instead of light segments. This meter is called a VU meter, and measured decibels(db) referenced to a certain amount of electricity that passed through them (another type of reference). This was indicated by "dbv." (volts) But more importantly, these meters were designed to be "weighted." In other words...they responded less to peaks and more to the AVERAGE level of sound....thus, they more closely matched how our ears work and are a better indication of how loud something actually is. What does this all mean for your tests? Well, it DID sound like the peak levels of gunfire and explosions were reduced when switching to night mode. And this was reflected by your numeric measurements. And you were also correct in deciding that...by lowering the peaks... you are effectively REDUCING the dynamic range of the sound of the game overall. You are bringing the soft sounds and peak sounds closer together. Or thinking of it another way....when playing "at night" there might be less extraneous sounds going on while you play.....your little brother is asleep and not screaming at your sister, for example. So you might not need as much of a "HIFI" experience to overcome the outside sounds. "TV" mode, I would guess, would be optimized to overcome your TV's "poorer" ability to reproduce sounds as compared to your stereo or expensive headset. I'm assuming this is all clear as mud. It's a complicated subject, but I hope helps to shed some light on this idea of "loudness."

HDR is not so much about how loud or silent single sounds are, but more about how a whole landscape of loud and silent noises sound like. How do footsteps sound like if a grenade blows up right beside you? That's what HDR can effect differently. Hi-Fi probably makes the grenade sound very loud and the footstep in the distance very silent, while night-mode equalizes all those volumes much closer together. You don't have to turn up your volume very much to hear everything in night mode. In HiFi you have to turn the volume way up to still hear the silent sounds.
