Last time we took a look at some of VOID’s features and CUE capabilities. Today, I’ll be diving into everything you need to know about InfoMic, CUE Control, and how to use CUE to create and assign EQ settings.
In our previous blog post, we mentioned InfoMic and CUE control being VOID’s solution to control virtually every aspect of the audio from the headset itself, while offering a visual feedback system.
CUE Control Functions
To review what CUE control does.
- Adjust Volume - Turn dial for volume control.
- Change EQ Profile - A quick press will cycle through 5 EQ profiles. EQ profiles can be changed in the CUE software.
- Toggle Dolby 7.1 - Pressing and holding the dial will toggle Dolby on and off.
- Mute toggle - a short key press toggles the mic on and off.
- Toggle Sidetone - If the mute button is press and held, you can enable or disable sidetone. When sidetone is on, sound from the mic is sent to the ear cups, so users can hear themselves.
- On/off – a short key press of the power button to turn the headset on and off. As VOID Wireless is powering off, the ear cup will pulse either green, amber, or red depending on the battery level.
- Pairing – pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds will put Void Wireless into Pairing mode. Note: headset should be powered off before trying to pair the headset to the dongle.
InfoMic provides a visual indicator providing mic status, Dolby status, battery levels, and connectivity status.
Here the different LEDs tells us:
LED 1 – Mic Status
- LED off: Mic unmuted
- Red: Mic muted
LED 2 - Battery Level
- Amber pulse: >20% battery
- Red pulse: >10% battery
EQ profiles and Dolby Status
While CUE is running, short key presses the dial on CUE Control will change profiles, InfoMic LED 2 will indicate which profile is active with a series of blinking lights and beep. The number of blinks and beeps and will equal the profile number.
- Profile 1: 1 blink + 1 beep
- Profile 2: 2 blinks + 2 beeps
The color of the blinks on LED 2 during switching of profiles will indicated Dolby status.
- Green – Dolby enabled
- Red – Dolby disabled
Intervals between each pulse and brightness intensity level can be adjusted using CUE.
Wireless pairing indicators
- LED 2 Red rapid blinking – Wireless headset not synced with dongle
- LED 1 and LED 2 blinking red and green – pairing mode. LED 2 will display long green pulse when pairing is successful.
Configuring EQ Profiles
Void uses CUE or Corsair Utility Engine to adjust mic levels, Dolby on/off, sidetone on/off, and EQ. CUE comes 5 EQ profiles (Pure Direct, Bass Boost, FPS Competition Mode, Clear Chat, Movie Theater). You can customize your own EQ profile and set up to 5 on the fly profiles that can be controlled through CUE control.
To create and assign a new EQ profile:
Click the “Advanced Mode” button.
to the right and click on “new” to create a new profile
From here, you will be able to adjust the EQ to taste. Clicking on the slider outside the circle will move that individual slider. Clicking on the circle inside the slider will adjust that slider and adjacent sliders.
New EQ profile “custom”(can be renamed) will now be assigned to Profile #1
You can move profiles by clicking on the vertical bar next to the profile name dragging it to any of the 5 profiles or by using the drop down menu.
You can also disable profiles by unselecting the profiles using the check box.
Configuring RGB Lighting
VOID and its RGB lighting is fully compatible with CUE and all other Corsair RGB products. The headset, by default on startup, will use the “Single Blink” effect in red. We have included other patterns selectable through the dropdown menu. Some patterns will have addition options to toggle the speed of the lights and/or color of the pattern.
CUE LINK is a feature available for those who have Corsair RGB keyboards and want to synchronize RGB lighting across all Corsair RGB products.
How to set up CUE LINK:
- Click the keyboard icon at the bottom
- Select one of the 5 preset CUE LINK modes. Each mode can be customized by clicking on the pencil icon.
InfoMic can also be customized through Brightness levels, intervals between blinks for mic status and battery level. You will be able to adjust brightness and intervals by moving the sliders.
Creating CUE Profiles
With the latest version of CUE you will be able to create profiles that unify all RGB devices in addition to synchronized lighting with CUE Link. Like with previous CUE enabled products, you will be able to create profiles for different applications. For example: users can create profiles with different keyboard macros, audio EQ profiles, different mouse button assignments for MOBA, FPS, MMOs, RTS, etc.
Profiles can also be linked to a specific game program or application so that the profile is loaded automatically when the program launches.
To create a profile:
- Click the “New…” under the Profiles tab. In the window the profile settings window, enter a name for the profile.
- Under “Program” you will be able to link profile to any program. To do so click the check box and click “Browse” to find the .exe file to link to the CUE profile.
To activate or edit the profile, use the Profile dropdown to select a profile.
With this in depth look at the headset and software functionality, you should be able to jump right into CUE and customize your VOID headset the way you want it!
