The issue with the hitsounds being soft is actually not due to any bug, but due to how pitch and frequency is interpreted - if everyone can remember the Online Offset map, remember that the sounds become softer when they're perfectly aligned, because... i'm not entirely sure. Something about pitch frequency, but it happens with sounds that are very similar in pitch and volume. By lowering one or the other you're basically forcing one to take over the other. The problem then becomes that the hitsounds are too similar to the samples used in the map itself and thus kind of skimps on audio feedback for the player. But that's an issue I don't care to really think about, it goes into philosophy rather than technical rules - "Are hitsounds required to be different from the music to provide feedback for the player? if so, are keysounded maps fundamentally unrankable, as the player performs the most important instrument in the music?" etc etc etc

Yeah I think that's a case of one area of the audio spectrum getting capped out super hard, lowering everything else in normalization.
I specifically avoided that in this set (it happened a couple of times in development with one of the clap sounds, hehe)
In the New Astronomas map you can hear the normalization struggling to keep up with how loud the hitsounds are, actually, it's fascinating.


I think the audio levels in this set are fine as a base setting..? I don't think it would be too hard for people experiencing this to turn down the music volume a little bit, like peppy demonstrated.

I'd like to suggest another name for the diff (I know that it doesn't matter but...) because it is not a marathonic song.
I would not call this a Marathon, maybe something like UnDErtAlE or something related to the game, to me Marathon is the paraparaMIX as 35 minutes, or the Renard Marathon that has 18 minutes aprox.

I'd recommend something like it, but if we are rights, the name doesn't matter xD

I think the word Marathon fits the situation the storyboard presents. 'Undertale' wouldn't quite fit the theme, surprisingly... its context is elsewhere. It would also be a little redundant seeing it in three places, hahaha

okay onto the real reason I'm posting


soft-hitnormal9 increased by 0.6 DB.
Verified this with Irreversible, this one will work! (yay)
Before and After
May not seem like much from the picture but it is incredibly noticeable ingame.

drum-hitnormal increased by over 1 DB, and some normalization to stay louder longer.
This one wasn't too difficult to hear but for safety it has been made louder (it's almost clipping now, haha)
Before and After


Redownload to get them, or if you want to save peppy some bandwidth the changed sounds are in this zip.

I believe the map still technically has 1 bubble because this was a really minor change.
