The obsidian V3 soundboard only takes .lsu files, the obsidian V4 soundboard will take .lsu and .wav files. So if you get the V3 board you'll have to convert .wav to .lsu.

Hi everyone,

I am brand new to UltraSabers (going to Post Office tomorrow to pick up my first saber!).  I was messing around with sound fonts that I want to load onto my saber, and found that the new launcher accepts the 48000 Hz .wav files.  Is there a reason we need to convert the .wav files to .lsu?

I am sorry if this is a silly question, like I said I'm new.  Thanks!

The Obsidian V3 and below requires all files to be LSU. Apparently the new one (V4) takes just about anything. I gotta get my hands on one of those... Smiley

See, I tried this and it just kinda made the font I picked up play faster and higher pitched. Which is definitely not what I want.

Any advice here?

In fiddling with it, I found that reducing the speed of the sound to 90% puts it back about where it was.

Ignore the prior post, I figured it out.



At least on my Obsidian, adjusting the Sample Rate on the track itself made it higher pitched and it wouldn't load into the Obsidian sound wizard anyway, complaining that it was the wrong Sample Format.



What worked for me was not to adjust the track, but just set the project to 48000Hz. Save the file uncompressed and it worked just fine.



Hopefully that helps.


(Mods feel free to delete the prior post, because I couldn't figure out how to delete it or edit it)

So you have to do this for every single wave file included in a sound font? Like if I DL'd one I have to do this process for every hum, boot, clash, etc. sound?

So I just did this for a sound font that is native at 22,050 hz and I followed the instructions here and amped it up to 48,000 and it sounds all speed up, high, and just terrible. How do I fix this?

What's hard to understand about swish swish stab?

I have three sabers with Obsidian v4 and I'm planning to load some soundfonts from saberforum.com and eventually saberfont.com. However, the Mario soundfont I pulled from FX-Sabers gives me the "uncompressed 16 bit mono at 48000 samplerate" error message when I try loading it into the launcher. Does this mean that I'll have to open them in audacity and edit them down to the correct parameters?

Is this needed for all SaberFont.com fonts as well, since those are rated for Plecter and NEC boards only?

It doesn't have to be a .lsu file for the final product like the instructions say since Angel_Rain's cat font is in .wav form, right?

 Ive got the most of this down through trial and error, the speed issue was friggin annoying.  but I cant figure out how to get the file size down to get all my old plexter lab fonts to actually fit..how the heck are you all pulling this off? I mean I'm ending up with 5mb files for each font., and that a ton more than each bank itself handles. I just want my Darth maul fonts to work....

I followed this step by step too and converted a soundfont I love but it sounds awful, no where near loud enough (Even though I amplified by 3dB, tried it by 6dB also but it was awfully distorted) and sounds VERY low quality ... Any tips on how to get around this??

I followed the Audacity procedure but I have a I-mac. The V4 launcher does not have the feature of converting wav files to lsu. I think I'm missing something. let me know if you can help. thanks.
