Tool to maintain uniform sound volume in W7?
G'day you all fine people
As per the title: does something like that exist? I've googled and googled, but I can't find anything. The problem is of course this; Windows 7 sounds are in volume 10, then Youtube is suddenly louder, say volume = 15, then Foobar = 16 in track one, and 11 in track 2, and so on and so forth. A tool that normalizes sound everywhere (no matter which source, say volume = 12) is what I would be looking for, because I am constantly changing the sound volume, and this is not exactly automation - which is what we have computers for
Thank you in advance for any suggestions; much appreciated :-)

There may be software that can perform this role for you but there is nothing native to Windows on offer, as this is typically a function that concerns the sound redistribution device.
When I used to run on a 5.1 HDMI-based uncompressed PCM system I would very rarely run in to this kind of situation where I often found myself changing the volume at the amplifier. Because this is an issue of quality and sensitivity on the speakers and the amplification, it was all a matter of being more agile with my volume adjustment, knowing when to go up or down where appropriate.
I suggest running all of your source audio at highest quality and volume levels, and adjusting the gain actively on the end device, or if you're running a standard desktop speaker system then you're out of luck as there may or may not be any custom software written to combat this.
Consider looking in to your audio driver control panel(s) for any relevant settings.
In addition to this, if you have any custom amplification, compressor-based or equalizing setting active, then you may want to turn that stuff off just to see where the differences are really coming from.
There is no simple solution, unfortunately. Especially when you're noticing differences between audio in the same piece of software (Foobar). It is likely your speaker sensitivity.
