As we evolve our gaming software and consolidate services, we will retire Razer Comms by June 1, 2017.

I guess bye bye Razer Comms...to be fair, did anyone even use it? I'm not surprised that they're closing it as I've never ever seen anyone use it... Ah well :P 

Anyway, any users of Razer comms will have to switch and you only have around 1 month (closes by 1st June) so...better get your ass moving?

edit: I should probably say that I've never used it xD 

I wonder if razer synapse has anything to do with me being sent this...

As a wise man once said, if you think I'm wrong and have facts to back it up with (not opinions) then I'll happily accept that you're correct. Remember, the facts has to be valid and comes from a "noteworthy" source.

As another wise man once said, if you don't have anything to say then please don't say anything unless you like a big fat sausage in your buns...

As a third wise man once said, tickle other's like how you want to be...oh wait, treat I mean, not tickle...whoops :P

i hear a lot of people liked it (iirc including linus and luke), but very few people used it.

Are you sure they actually liked it and weren't just shilling?

It seemed like they struggled to use it for their guests, and it seemed like they abandoned it and stopped talking about it completely as soon as they stopped getting paid.

It was a bit of an mixed bag program, it had good sound quality and all that.

But it worked only about 50% of the time. And they never really fixed it.

the fuck was razer comms?

JBL 4412 // P-308 / M-508, who needs a sub woofer when you have an equalizer?

Legacy:

 

Spoiler

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.

At first there were some problems with specific audio configurations and sound cards, so some people wouldn't be able to use it properly.
Also, the software got frequent updates which required a system restart.

This was during the first couple of months with Razer Comms, it drove lots of people off. Some of the bugs were never fixed.

These are the main reasons people abandoned it. Later Discord became the go-to platform.

I still remember the days where Razor Comms was sponsoring the Wan Show.

It was such a great program, so great in fact that when Linus was having guests on the Wan Show, he always made it absolutely clear that all of them were using Razor Comms. That's how great it was.

 

Right up until Linus screwed up and showed us multiple times that he was using Skype to talk with the guests.

When can we take the rest of the company down?

 

Wasn't this the software they kept on showing off all the time and hire YouTubers to show it off?

 

I am not surprised at all....


Before you buy amp and dac.  My thoughts on the M50x I might have a thing for audio...

My main Headphones and IEMs: HE 560, K612 pro and Ultimate Ears Reference Monitor (UERM waiting for them to get done)

DAC and AMP: Dual PCM63k + tube DAC, Meridian Prime (test unit).

Speakers: Monitor Audio Bronze 2

Receiver: Yamaha R-N500

Ironic that he previously lambasted Skype for being insecure. While he wasn't wrong in the general sense, closing some of the more important security holes Skype has client-side wasn't exactly rocket science.

 

On a related note: While we wait for services like Discord to at least do something here by Valve Time, is there any good clients out there for video conferencing?

I used it before I heard about discord. It was much better than Skype and easier to use than other services. I got my whole group of friends to use it but we switched to discord after almost a year.
