Everything on, except during PvP no music. Internet spaceship combat is serious business...Blink

Everything turned on except the music. As nice as the music is, it does get a tad tedious after a while. The sound effects are awesome and meaty :). Jukebox is a very useful function thanks :)

UI sounds only cuz it helps to make the game more playable with as clunky, slow and laggy the UI can be.

ie. did i actually click it (activate gate or warp to for example, and well, yes I clicked it, but is the game actually acknowledging that fact), cuz i cant use my hotkeys cuz there could be a random chat window open or I might be using my push to talk or my UI might still be lagging 5 seconds after the screen loads and I can't do **** but my shields are already melted so I am spam clicking with my mouse pointer 50 times a second on stuff that I can actually do that to. Unfortunately turning on my ship mods will have to wait a second after my UI starts working cuz the last thing I want to do is turn them off again and wait for them to finish lagging after turning them off just so I can turn them back on again.

So yeah, UI sounds only.

Sounds on when using my main account and off for alts.

Music on for quick sessions, my own music for long sessions.

Sound adds to the immersion for me so i have it on. However blasters sound irritatingly bad, and i hope the blaster wheezing noise changes with the winter expansion, but i doubt it.

I keep the sound on, I think that when you start turning off the sound the game turns from fun into a chore, so I don't wanna do it

about the music, all I have to say is: what a yawnfest! egad!

that is all

That is all.

all sound on, although the loudest is only at 50% volume.

there's some good music though, especially Retribution. so i turn that one up when i hear it.

No. But I actualy like eve music. Especially deadspace tracks.

But since eve is most fun when playing with other people, and best way to communicate is via voice (ts/mumble/evevoice/whatever), sounds only distract. so they are turned off most of the time. All of them.

This. Though if I ever mission in highsec while being anti-social I will turn on UI and effect, then switch on Pandora.

Waaaaaaaaaaay too confusing when you multi-box

Off unless I'm recording something that requires it on

EDIT: Camping Wormholes (when it's useful)

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

All sound on, music depends tho.

Jukbox music; usually Alienhand sometimes original tracks.
But most often i listen to EVE - Radio.

I have everything on, only because I haven't shut it off and I am kind of digging the eve music right now.

i have the sounds active since i started eve, I even listen to the music. It's a great tune to listen while doing stuff at home!
