Anyone else wish when you turned on your saber, it didn't say "Sabercore, Crimson" or whatever the other soundfont is? I love my sabers but, man that is super annoying. I wish there was a way to that off in the menu or something...

Or am I the only one?

I don't mind it, but something different would be nice to. Like I heard one one time that said "I am Ashoka Tano" when you pulled the kill key

This is the beauty of the Hero Soundboard. You can put any sound for the startup. This is why a prefer the hero over the elite. Well, that and the color changing :)

You'd need to use a soundboard that was able to have sound fonts changed and setup.

I have a saber that boots up to the TFA Snoke line "There has been an awaking", I just build a font config for an Obi-Wan saber will boot up to Leia saying, "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're our only hope".

You can get pretty creative with the right soundboard.

Yeah. The spark color 2 board is quite nice. I just wish they offered more pre-wired board options. A cheaper option using the spark board and an even more expensive option using igniter. I'd especially like just a regular spark board for a few custom sound fonts while keeping most of the features and for a cheaper price.

Old topic but I was wondering if the pnp electronics have the startup "sabercore" thing?

Afaik, the boards with micro usb port won't do that, because they are in deep sleep not powered off through the kill key.

They will tell you what font you activated, though.


When I get my champion sc3.0 I will upload something for the lulz..
I saw a video where a guy put cat sounds on his saber.
Maybe goats or sheep? Lol

The Veteran Boards do say "Sabercore Viridian", or "Sabercore Crimson"
The Champion board will say the name of the font ex "Ruiner" then select sound

Thanks for the info guys. I am looking for something that say doesn't say or do anything but sound and act like a lightsaber. I think the startup cheapens it a bit for me. Perhaps I am crazy. Doesn't that drive you guys nuts? No? just me huh? OK.
Any alternatives for sound boards in the pnp style that doesn't announce itself?

I totally get where youre coming from. Bada** lightsaber turns on- guy with a voice changer RANGERS BLADE. great l. Awesome. Each sound in the saber is saved as a separate file. You can save the boot sounds as empty audio files. Keep in mind though that the boot sound lets you know which sound font you have selected. What some people do is use different astromech sounds or ambient sounds to let them know which is which.


Bear in mind the only boards saberforge offer that are editable are the sabercore 3.0 and champion tier

Yes, they will. In fact, any soundboard by any manufacturer that has a sleep mode or a recharge port wired to it will play a sound when power is supplied to the board, either by waking it up or removing the kill key. It's a boot-up sound. On boards with interchangeable fonts, you can change the sound to something else, but a font literally won't work without a boot.wav file included.

I'm waiting for my Campion Tier ASP saber, and I feel exactly as you do, DeLano, you're not alone !

But thanks to Major_Tom's idea, the problem might be solved ! And empty sound font for the startup would work for me I guess. As for knowing the font activated, it would be quite easy to know with the sound of the blade (I have Jedi, Sith and Grey jedi font).

Had a long hard think about getting Sabercore 2 or wait for 3, and for me totally worth it waiting for Sabercore 3.0, sure the sensitivity on the x-axis may be off putting to some but that could/can be resolved with updated programming. for $50 more you get an extra sound bank and a whole heap of sounds to swap and really make your lightsaber yours and unique.

As soon I had swapped out the warrior components to a champion tier it was clear that it needed some Vader boot ups, Heirloom, the Master and Rangers blade was changed to ''There is no escape, don't make me destroy you'', ''Don't be to proud of this destructive terror you've constructed'' and ''The force is with you young Skywalker but you are not a Jedi yet''.

Okay. Thanks for the info guys. So, to be clear, I would need a sabercore 3.0 or champion tier pnp. I can than save the boot up sounds as empty sound files so I can turn it on and there will be no silly sounds or voices?
Could I also get rid of the other things like force lightning and blaster deflect as well?
As you can tell, I just want basic saber sounds.
Thanks again everyone. I appreciate it.

that is correct, but it isn't enough to delete them. You need to replace them with an empty audio file (.wav i think?)

Hi DeLano, Major_Tom,

I believe the format for Sabercore 3 sound files is 16-bit PCM, 22050hz, Mono, .wav

Fellow member Rhyno wanted a saberstaff with clash sounds only on one end and we discussed the option of using Audacity to record "silent" .wav files for that problem. You can read his thread by clicking HERE
I think it should work for boot up sounds/Aux Effects etc too.

hope this helps

For Tyeth
