Why can't an option be programmed in our software to allow the user to select or deselect radio effects? Also, why hasn’t the person who figured out a workaround ever let the rest of us know what it is.

Not exactly sure what it is you are asking, Joe. What do you mean by 'radio effects' ?

He’s referring to theoretically being able to turn on/off realistic sounding radios in case some people, for whatever reason, would rather have it sound like it currently does.

Again with the sound tinkering..........

This is a learning network. There are several active members for whom English is not their first language. They have not had to show English proficiency for a real life pilot's license. Even the native English speaking members, who are training, welcome clear audio, otherwise the network could be full of "Say again".......
When we fly RW, some of us have Bose A20s, some have DCs, some have noise cancelling, others don't, there are in ear variants, and the list goes on and on. They all give different sounds, and even the radios and audio panels are different in age, performance and so on. There may be local interference, range difficulties, and other difficulties.

Leave it alone, please!

If you really feel the need to distort things, do it yourself! Invest in a bit of audio software to trim the frequency range and introduce a little distortion plus noise. There is no requirement to inflict your personal preferences on the rest of us.

That’s why most of the people here are proposing/advocating for a way to toggle it on and off.

Yes, I got that, Kevin. However, I just felt that it was not a vital thing for PilotEdge's programmers or staff to be working on. I wonder just how many of the users (all the users, not just this thread's contributors) really want this - or even care...........

I speak for myself but I want crystal clear sound. Have been on vatsim and I don’t like their sounds. Please do not destroy the sounds.

I concur. With Squawkbox, the plugin for vatsim the sound quality is so bad i have to almost silent all aircraft sounds to understand and hear what any if them say. On PE i can enjoy clear ATC and enjoy the sounds of the model.

The sound quality is a big reason i pay for this service... outside the obvious learning aspects.
