The volume attribute defines the loudness of a sound stimulus.

Member of



/ volume = integer


integer An integer from 0 to -10000 specifying volume in 1/100 decibel units.


Volume values may range from 0 (no volume adjustment) to -10,000 (essentially silent). Inquisit does not support amplification. Volume units are relative to the original volume of the WAV file. The decibel scale corresponds to the logarithmic hearing characteristics of the ear. An attenuation of 10 dB makes a buffer sound half as loud; an attenuation of 20 dB makes a buffer sound one-quarter as loud. The pan setting is cumulative with the volume setting.
