Adding custom voices to your radio is critical for beginning drone pilots. For example, not know what flight mode you are in, or whether your motors are armed or not can be the difference between a safe day and a day in the hospital. New pilots are nervous, they have invested time and money into that quad and they don’t want to see it crash. Their nerves are on high alert when that quad is in the air so having the radio communicate with you with a voice is the sound of reason. The sound of calm.
Hey everybody. Steve here. Welcome to an impromptu video on how I got custom sounds on my TX 16 S I recently just finished up a seven part series on the TX 60 S taking you from essentially the very, very beginnings and all the way through to, um, covering topics such as logical switches. And we essentially created a bunch of special functions, which had some fairly unique, custom sound Role, proportional role, integral role, derivative pitch proportional. Those look like on the radio was essentially here when I flipped the switch Proportional.
So you can really have a whole bunch of fun with this thing. I mean, uh, in addition to being able to add switch sounds, you can add a new hello sound and just all sorts of fun thing. So, let’s take a look at how we did This. I’m gonna go ahead and bring a window in here. All right. So I’m going to zoom in so that you can see the, you are very clearly here, uh, and I’ll also include the link in the description below so that she actually didn’t even really have to worry about it. This is a free thing that you can try, and essentially what you do is come down here and they have a lot of voices. I mean, a ton of, uh, voices. I’ll just give you a quick example of here’s a female voice Conscious of it’s spiritual and moral heritage. The union is founded on the end of visible male voice conscious of its spiritual and moral heritage. The union is founded on the invisible universal values of human dignity, freedom equality.
So now I have listened to a lot of these voices and I’m going to go straight to the voice that I like. Uh, it is this Lisa version three. The reason why I’m picking this one is if you have the Amber pack, I think this voice right here is the one that sounds most close to the Amber Conscious of its spiritual and moral heritage. The union is founded on the indivisible universal values.
So we’re going to just go ahead and replace this text, and I’m going to start adding the things that I want it to say. Role proportional, role, integral role, derivative pitch, proportional pitch, integral pitch, derivative. You are proportional. You are integral. You are derivative.
What you want to do here is absolutely make sure you remember to include the periods so that, uh, the voice pauses. So they’re a bunch of different ways that you can record the voice. Uh, you can just take a recording device, put it up to your speakers. If you’re using a desktop and record it that way, uh, you can actually go to this website on your phone and use the screen recording software on your phone. You can also get some screen capture recording software, um, Snagit is available for, I think it’s 50 bucks. Yeah, 50 bucks. Um, but you get a free trial, so you can actually do this using just the free trial, but I’m just going to go ahead and say, buy the software. It’s worth it. So I’m going to use my screen recording software at this point to record all nine of the voice prompts. And here we go.
Role proportional role integral role derivative pitch, proportional pitch into grill pitch derivative. You are proportional. You are integral, you are derivative.
Okay. So down here you can see the verbal track in visual form and all I’m going to do is save it. And I’m going to save it as a wave file.
All right. So what we’re going to want to do is we’re gonna want to take what we just had, and we’re going to want to open it up in some audio software. Now I have audition from Adobe. So I’m going to go ahead and use that audition is not something that you’d want to use if you’re just doing this one simple time. If you’re just doing this one simple time, go ahead and grab yourself some free software, such as audacity. Once you download audacity, it’s going to be able to do exactly what I’m doing in audition. Uh, and the steps are very similar. All right. So the first thing I’m gonna do is I’m going to go to file open and here’s my Lisa sounds, and I’m gonna select open. And as you can see, I’ve got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. So let’s go ahead and take a listen to them in, um, audition, Roll, proportional, roll into grill, roll derivative pitch, proportional pitch into grill pitch, derivative, your proportional, your integral, your derivative. All right. So if memory serves me correctly, the first, uh, the first one is role proportional.
So what I’m gonna do is I’m going to grab just this section right here. I’m going to click and hold highlight, get just to the end of it. Let go, go over to file and come down to save selection. As remember to use, save selection and click on it. I’m going to browse. I’ll just throw it on desktop. And this one is real proportional. Now, when you save, make absolutely positively sure that you save it using these exact specifications, or it might not play, you’re going to want to save it as a dot w a V file away file. You’re going to want to use 16,000 Hertz. It’s gotta be in mono. It’s gotta be 16 bet once you’ve done that you just select. Okay. So next thing I’m gonna do is I’m gonna pop my cursor right there. That should be rolling. A girl. All right, now that I have all nine, I’m just going to go to my Lisa and make sure
Pitch derivative pitch integral, pretty sure. Name them correctly. Pitch proportional, rural derivative role integral role proportional. You are derivative are integral. You are proportional.
I’m ready for my next step. And we’re going to squeeze T4 and T1 together and open it up and bootloader mode. And it’s going to be an extremely bright screen, basically freaks the camera out. Um, but essentially what I’m going to do is I’m going to get this guy up and I want to get him connected.
And now I’m connecting a couple of windows are gonna pop up on me and there they are. This one right here. We’re not gonna do anything with this one right here. If we click on sounds, we’re going to get the English sounds. I’m gonna go into English and then I’m going to go to my Lisa folder, grab this. These are all the default sounds. I’m just going to grab these, drag them over here, pop them in. And there it is. All right. So we’ve really just scratched the surface on adding some fun and productive, uh, sounds to your TX 16 S there’s so much more that you can do. Uh, this thing is infinitely programmable and just awesome to the nth degree. I sure hope you got some benefit out of this video.
