I am using sound component to set up my audio files for my experiment. My audio files are recordings of utterances produced by speakers.
For the “volume $”, I see that I can enter a number between 0 and 1. It’s a normalized value between 0 (minimum) and 1 (maximum). Does this mean that it will automatically bring the amplitude to a target level no matter how loud or quiet the original sound is?
In my study, it is important to keep the volume of the original sound so that listeners will hear the difference between loud and soft voice. I tried leaving that entry for “volume $” blank, and it makes syntax error.
Is there any way for me to keep the volume as it is in the original recordings?
