I hope they dont push her thru she sounds like a snob. Ill just mute her.

If CCP was smart they would actualy make 3-4 versions of on board computer so everyone can pick their favorite. Keeping the OLD ONE would be my choice tho

They have trouble getting a single option to work properly, guess what would happen if there were several.

Just check thoes [OLD VOICE] and [duplicate with ...] entries here http://playground.schildwall.info/sisileaks/next_great_npe/?voice=aura

You cannot warp there, because natural phemomena is disrupting the warp

The warp of the first sample replaced ship in a sisi patch this morning. The second one didn't change.

I'm really not a fan of the new voice. It seems lacking compared to the old one.

I would like to know the thoughts behind the change as well.

They made the npe all voice acted and rather than make a new character to help new Bros they re-used aura so for consistency they changed he in all parts of eve because **** us

It's not professional work, but here's a few attempts to make some of the new samples sound more like the old aura, while still holding the quality and feel that comes with the new ones. All I did was slightly pitch them down, and run them through a couple of simple filters:

https://soundcloud.com/uriel-anteovnuecci/sets/aura-altered - has original new file, then (altered) version edited a bit

I'll add a few more and show more bit by bit.



I still prefer the old aura but these alterations sound decent enough, better than what current seems to be in use.

I wonder, could there be like annoucer choices? Choose the old aura, or a new, or even choose audio files and make your own theme entirely? because that would eliminate the preference lockout AND enable a multitude of options.

I have to disagree.

My hearing is getting worse and I find the new voice hard to understand. As I said in another thread the speed sounds wrong and the diction is not to the old standard.

Given the changes to the skills screen I am finding it harder and harder to understand what the UI is telling me. CCP must understand that we are not all 20 somethings and take into account the varying degrees of sensory impairment that must exist in the number of players there are.

I really love old Aura and hope change that doesn't hit TQ. New voice is too fast, too high and sounds like recorded in a can. It Basilicaty sounds cheap What?

Agreed, it needs to be slowed down a bit. One thing I really like about Old Aura's voice is that she enunciates her words clearly because it's quite slow. Sounds better that way AND sounds exactly what I would expect from an onboard ship's voice.

CCP, please presume the use and presence of excessively crude language and politically incorrect, derogatory exasperation expressed in this post as a means to highlight feelings and a critical viewpoint in regard to the aura voice as [rude language here] you on sisi.

The new voice is acted ok. But there is some kind of effect in it, that makes it sound metalic, which is not pleasing at all. It does not have the same sexappeal the current Aura has.

So, do you like the new voice?

I like the new voice, slightly more cheerful and less drawling, with a slight synthetic tinge that reminds me of the old voice.

No, not the current Aura "old voice".

The old voice.

There was a lot of complaining when the Aura you all know and love was introduced too.

I remember reading a lot of threads exactly like this one.
