Required: VoiceAttack v1.6.9 Recommended: EDDI (free)
Music & Innovation. Two words we love…
Give Voice Attack the ultimate gift! VMX Player 2! VMX Player is the ultimate voice controlled music and audio system for your own music and/or ours. VMX is much more than just that though, it is an evolving eco system of exclusive content which can be used whether you are gaming or not, therefore stopping VoiceAttack from gathering dust.
Amazon Echo et al feel like out of date, 20th century rejects next to this beast. We feel that simply throwing a music system in as an afterthought to another product doesn’t quite cut it, hence a dedicated music system with full focus on audio and music. Does it play nice with other Voice Attack software? Yes, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t. You may need to link profiles depending on what you want to use VMX Player with, it’s simple to do.*
Music Packs: One of the main packs you can add to VMX Player are Music Packs. These are soundtracks geared towards replacing original game scores and can be used as game triggered music or played as a regular album. We believe music is so important, it guides our emotions, lifts us when we are sad and of course conveys a ‘feel’ for games, it provides themes for your in game experiences that will stay with you for years, we want to innovate and really do something special here. They are licensed for your use in VODs, streaming etc as well. Every Music Pack you own will add to the pool of available music in game.
Mix variants: VMX stands for Variant Mix eXtensions. This is the technology which allows you to add, replace or remove instruments within a mix all in realtime. Want to hear how a track sounds without vocals? Simply say “remove the vocals”, want to hear with a different lead instrument? Say “replace lead instrument” voila! You can even have variants included or excluded in your context driven soundtrack!
Voice Expansions: VMX Player supports both TTS (Text to Speech) options and Voice Expansions, we think you should have the choice whether to have your music system voiced by TTS or by a Voice Expansion, so the choice is yours. Our Voice Expansions range from celebrity voices to YouTube gaming personalities and more!
VMX supports the following audio formats (plus others!): MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, WMA, MP4, AAC, AAC+, Commodore SID formats (SPC, VGM, VGZ, VTX etc), Playstation Audio, Ad-Lib chip tunes, 8 & 16bit music module formats and more!
Playlists via simple drag & drop. Add your own playlists, they’ll be automatically organised for you, you can even assign them to events within game (see below).
Assign playlists to events. When coupled with EDDI, you can assign playlists to events by saying for example “assign this playlist to docking” so the current playlist you’re listening to will initiate whenever you dock. You can also specify which playlists to assign to which event i.e “assign playlist 1 to undocked”. This being VMX, we didn’t stop there, you can manage event assignments by deleting them, changing them or calling up a list to see what you have assigned where.
VMX Player also features the new G.L.I.D.E system, which automatically varies transitions and fades whilst using context mode based on what type of event transition is occurring in game i.e slow transitions for System Map in Elite: Dangerous to faster transitions when moving to combat.
VMX Player in free update 2.1 (due Q1 2018) will support our unique Hybrid Audio Blocks system, this system is currently being enhanced. Audio Blocks is a dynamic system which creates music on the fly out of small chunks, or blocks, of audio. It composes something different every time. Audio Blocks has been a user favourite feature since the beginning. We’re working on making it even better!
You can also switch VMX’s music player over to a ‘dumb player’ and handle your own music that way if you wish or if you use Spotify, iTunes,Windows Media Player or VLC, control of them is supported via VMX hand-off mode.
EQ Presets and control VMX now supports voice control of EQ presets, you can save them so that they’re always set, presets such as bass boost, higher treble, cinematic etc are possible, or take finer control via the player interface.
Drag & Drop. All of your playlists, MusicPacks & Voice Expansions can be added by simply dragging and dropping them in. Voice Expansions and MusicPacks can be set by simply saying ‘set voice Obsidian’ or ‘set Exploration pack’ for example. That’s it!
Built in update notification system: No complications or messing about here. When you start up VMX Player if there is an update available for VMX or a Music Pack, Voice Expansion etc. It will tell you which one has an update available. You simply download the new pack from your account and drag and drop the new one in. Easy.
V-STAR. VMX 2.0 ships with the first, early iteration of V-Star, an interactive and self diagnostic/auto repair system. It will automagically test for things like profile merges to make sure VMX’s crucial initialisation routine is ran, it’ll check for plugins as well as various other VoiceAttack settings and VMX status. V-Star will integrate even more tightly with the online manual in near future as well.
The smaller but, still, cool things:
Choose whether to show or hide the music player interface, choose whether to add playlists et al to the player manually and then take control later via voice, or do everything via voice. It’s upto you!
Take control! Shuffle mode, loop mode (repeat), play random playlists, play random mix variants, loop music packs or play all music packs (global loop). Play, stop, pause, rewind, fast forward. They’re all there!
Volume control system specify a volume in percent or nudge the volume up or down
Attenuator: Reduces music volume whilst voice overs are speaking
Switch soundFX on/off, voices may be switched on or off too
MOTD (Message Of The Day) system: VMX Player also has an MOTD system that will give a short line upon startup, if there are important messages to give out to users, they will appear there, but also when there are none, we let our fantastic users submit funny MOTD messages on our Discord channel. Submit one yourself and it may just go out to all of our users!
Free updates, both feature additions and bug fixes will appear for the life of VMX Player 2.x series. Oh and… we have some incredible updates coming. VMX Player 2.0 is just about to get started 😉
