How to change default Bank .ogg compression quality?


(Arcus) #1

Hi, when I make new banks it defaults them to .ogg (which is fine) and 37% Quality — which seems oddly low.

Any way to change that default? And is there a reason why 37% is the default? My understanding is the % roughly maps to .ogg’s own 1-10 quality.

The creators of the vorbis codec consider quality 5 to be undetectable, and recommend quality 3 as the best balance between fidelity and size.

There’s no way to change the default in 1.7. However 1.8 has a newer workflow which includes setting defaults.

Ah, thank you Nicholas! Will test. I wasn’t aware of that.

Which 1.8 are you referring to? I’m on FMOD Studio 1.07.06.
