We wanted to ask for your help guys. We are looking for a volunteer to record Spotter sounds in American English. Current British English recording consists of 75 sounds.

As you may know, in oval races Spotter and Chef are not the same person. We would like to add a drop down to allow selection of various voices for Spotter functionality.

Please let us know if you are interested. Thanks!

Hi If I may participate as a commentary here. I am digging the new sound options for crew chief (these spotter voices). However your missing the two sound files "ok ile spot" "ok no spotting calls" ... and any variations. It don't sound right to me to have Jim say these when there is a lady "Clare"(Excellent work Clare) could we have the additional spots announce the spotting calls and none is this an option?? Just my two Penney's worth.

This sounds like a fun way to contribute. I'll record a set this week and see how it goes. Where should I send the WAV files?

Dont know if they did not make it into the latest 4.7.8.0 or not but still missing.
Got the spotter radio check message so that was different, I was talking of the option/s to turn spotting off and on via a button on the controller and thus play the spotter saying no spot ect....

Edit:
On the second run I hear you Jim Tell them no spotting calls disregard top post bit.
Yah

Yeah, still waiting for the new sounds here so I added spotter name specific enable / disable sounds of my own - these are placeholders and will be replaced

I couldn't get rid of some mouth clicks and the audio may be on the quiet side, I hope that's okay. I watched a bunch of reference video to get a feel for the sound.

I included a clip of "quiet" audio in case you need to filter out some of the noise.

This is my first time voice acting. Let me know if you want me to record another set (louder, different audio settings, no mouth clicks, less background noise, etc.). I'm glad to contribute to this awesome app! It's a little intimidating to have to stand up to the fine voice work that's already in place :)
