DASHBOARD

Game and Global Preferences

The first section of the "Dashboard" is the "Game Preferences" section. There will be a dropdown menu for game presets as well as a dropdown menu for global presets.

Game presets save the audio settings, but not any macros you have created. Global presets save the audio settings as well as any macros you have created. Neither the game presets nor the global presets save the assignment of the setting wheel or the button on the headset. Four game and four global presets can be saved at the same time.

As you change settings, either the “Game Preset” or “Global Presets” dropdown text changes to orange. To keep the settings you selected, click the Preset drop-down menu, then click Save Preset As to name the new preset.

The default game preset options are Signature sound, Bass boost, Treble Boost and Bass and Treble Boost. When you create and save presets, they will also appear in this list.

The global preset has an option at the beginning (default). When you save global presets, they appear as options in the global preset list.

Under the "Game Preferences" drop-down list, there are three settings that can be activated and then adjusted, as well as a slider.

Game Treble Boost - This setting adjusts the volume of the treble in the game path. To adjust this setting, set the switch to "On" and adjust the slider to the setting you want.

Game Bass Boost - This setting controls the volume of the bass audio in the game path. To adjust this setting, set the switch to "On" and adjust the slider to the desired setting.

Game Dialog Level - This setting controls the volume of the game's vocals and dialogue. To adjust this setting, set the switch to "On" and adjust the slider to the setting you want.

Game / chat mix - This will balance the incoming and chat audio. If you only want to hear game audio, move this slider all the way to the left under the word Game. If you only want to hear chat audio, adjust this slider to the far right under the word Chat. Leave the slider under the word "Mix" to hear an even mix of game and chat audio.

Microphone volume

Below the Game Settings is the Microphone Volume section. In this section three settings can be activated and adjusted.

Microphone volume - To adjust this setting, set the switch to "On" and adjust the slider to the setting you want.

Noise Gate Threshold - The noise gate is the point that the outgoing microphone audio must reach in order for the microphone to transmit that audio. If the audio is too quiet or just a little quieter and does not meet the Noise Gate requirements, it will not be transmitted. To adjust this setting, toggle the switch to the "On" position and raise or lower the slider as needed.

Variable microphone monitor - This will allow you to hear yourself through the headset when speaking into the microphone to prevent accidentally yelling at other people. This setting allows you to adjust how loud you hear yourself through the headset when speaking into the microphone. To adjust this setting, set the switch to "On" and adjust the slider to the setting you want.

Right sidebar

Master Volume - Controls the volume of all incoming audio - both in-game and in chat. Make sure this is at a level that is comfortable for you.

Game Spatializer - This records stereo sound and adjusts it to mimic multichannel audio. This optimizes the audio to be played through the speakers for the best stereo experience.

Superhuman Hearing - Allows you to hear and focus on subtle audible signals, e.g. B. enemy footsteps or gunfire. Turn on the Superhuman Hearing feature and choose one of the following options: "Legacy", "Footsteps Boost" and "Gunshots BoostThe Superhuman Hearing volume can be adjusted in the Audio Settings screen.
