Hello all -

This thread has indeed been helpful, thank you. We have a number of Ultrasabers in our house, but I just purchased my first Obsidian v4 with Emerald secondhand. I have downloaded and unzipped the default V4 soundfonts (all 7) and I notice silent is not included. I assume that silent has no soundfonts except for the beep for the tag/boot? The previous owner appears to have replaced most of the default soundfonts so I would like to restore them. Is my best option to format the memory and then load up each of the 7 default fonts, saving them to my HDD for future loading? Is there a better way? How do I get the 8th (silent) back? Is there a way to save sound fonts from the board if you do not have the original files? Lastly, I see there is a Default Obsidian Soundfont and a Default Obsidian V4 Soundfont Package which contains a Default Obsidian Soundfont... are these two soundfonts the same?

Thanks

I don't have a V4, but I think that the Silent font has nothing else than a tag sound. Formatting the memory is always a good option if you get a saber secondhand.

Yes, you should have the option to save the sound font before you copy it onto the board.

No, the Default Obsidian Soundfont is for the V3 board only as it only contains the files for one font. The V4 package contains all 7 fonts that a V4 comes pre-loaded with when you buy it from UltraSabers.

Thanks Racona Nova! I apologize for bombarding the thread with so many questions.

Is my best option to format the memory and then load up each of the 7 default soundfonts, saving them to my HDD for future loading?
  • So the default package I downloaded from Ultrasabers does not contain the upload file, I need to load each to each bank and save to my HDD and then writ to the board?
  • Is there a better way?
How do I get the 8th (silent) back?
  • It looks like I have an option while formatting to "protect" the 8th bank which is currently the silent soundfont, I assume this is how I retain it?
Is there a way to save soundfonts from the board if you do not have the original files?
  • To clarify, the soundfonts that came with my secondhand saber, can I pull those off of the soundboard and save them to my HDD before I format the memory or will I just lose those soundfonts?
I see there is a Default Obsidian Soundfont and a Default Obsidian V4 Soundfont Package which contains a Default Obsidian Soundfont... are these two soundfonts the same?
  • I see the difference in zip files, but is the Default Obsidian Soundfont contained in each the same or are they different (do they sound different? Said another way, is there any reason to download the V3 version with a V4 board?

No problem, that's why we're here Smiley

So, your second question: Yes, you have to fill all banks first before you can save them on the HDD. There's no other way. Once you have that font saved, you don't have to go through that if you want that font on a different saber.

Third: I think so. The 8th is normally the Silent font, so if you can protect it, I'd really try that!

Fourth: That should be possible. Go to the "Write sounds" section in the Sound Wizard, choose "Save" below the Bank overview and give it a name. That should save the font.

Fifth: I don't know as I don't have a V4 for reference. I can't imagine that they're different, but someone with both the V3 and V4 should have more info. But if you have a V4, then I would stick to those fonts in the V4 package. The V3 wouldn't make sense.
