volume mixer control issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, enjoying my use of win7 so far. I have a question about the volume mixer:

    Is there any way to set the individual elements eg.Itunes at a higher volume than global (Global is shown as "speakers" in my case) In XP I was able to set everything at max and then control the overall volume with my media keys. This meant a better 'source' sound from the pc to the amp. I find that increasing the global volume leads to more audible feedback and interference.

    Sorry for rambling, it's kind of tricky to explain

    Cheers

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    As I know, the volume of Speakers is the master volume control for the sound output. By design, we can't set any application volume level higher than it. However, we can prorate different distributions among the master volume and applications. The larger proportion is set, the more audible feedback and interference takes effect.

     

    Meanwhile, if you want the sound to be changed obviously, you can connect some sound device to amplify the volume.

     

    By the way, I found an interesting blog to share with you.
