  • Sound/Microphone are louder when watching games live.

    Hi. I don't know if this is a setting caused by your audio problems during the International or if it's just a random bug, but my in game-sound seems louder when I cast live games(I felt like this the second time as well as my first time a week or two ago).

    Additionally, I don't know if Dota 2 has any effect on this, but my mic volume that I end up recording(using adobe audition) is also quite high compared to when I pub games and record audio. I don't know if this is just my physical reaction to talk louder when I can't hear as well or what, but my audio peaks look MUCH different(and I have to shift all of the audio down before rendering by 5+ decibles).

    Actually, I just checked my audio levels(of the first recording I did), and during the first live cast, I actually manually adjusted the audio down, and this game I did not, and the audio levels looked the same, so it appears that all of my audio(in game and mic recording) is being stepped up by observing live games. Is this possible?

    Btw, I was in the English casting spot for the first game I did, and the Russian for the second, so I don't believe it makes a difference.
