Description: Loudness Equalization uses understandings of human hearing to reduce perceived volume differences.
My audio hardware:
Realtek HD (Chipset/bus)
Drivers up to date
Realtek Codec: ALC888S
7.1 system (only use standard stereo speaker)
So, with the option turned off, system sounds and properly recorded/ripped music whatever (mp3's) all sound equal in volume level. Some web videos are LOUD AS HELL and some are IMPOSSIBLE TO HEAR. This goes also for videos on the computer that I didn't make or rip from a DVD (which have proper audio levels). Obviously this is because other people are idiots and don't know proper audio levelling. Fine, this option is supposed to fix that right?
Option on: previous music and videos with proper levels are now way too quiet, system sounds nearly blow the speakers (which I don't want to turn off), some quiet web videos are at proper volume, some are impossible to hear (some that were already impossible and some that I could and some that were too loud), then others are way too loud (again, some I could here, some that I couldn't, and some that were too loud).
Is there ANY way to get some half-decent volume equalization/levels? I'm sick of having to turn my speakers up and down, up and down, up and down...
