Windows 7: Low Playback Volume After Recording at Optimum Levels

Low Playback Volume After Recording at Optimum Levels

Thank you in advance,

I am trying to transfer my band's backing tracks from a Sony MiniDisc Player to my new IdeaPad y550 (Windows 7) using 1/8" stereo jacks from the MiniDisc Player to the stereo mic in on the laptop. My record levels are fine (optimum) but playback of the file results in considerably lower volume. The VU meters during playback are at the levels I recorded but actual audio volume is much lower.

Same problem regardless of the software I am using (Sound Recorder, CakeWalk, WavePro, etc.) so I am hoping it is some global setting I can't find...

It may just be the recording level and you need to increase the playback level in whatever program you are using to playback. I do a lot of audio work (I have a recording studio using Cakewalk Sonar 8.5) and what you are seeing happens at times.

Make sure your record levels are "optimal" for your system. If you use Audacity, I think it has an option to "normalize" the levels after you record and before you save it. Normalizing will set the volume levels and should eliminate the low playback problems.

SOLVED win7 m profire 610 volume

Hi, I have looked all over to solve low voulme trouble with Windows 7 64 bit and m-audio profire 610. Here is my solution. When visiting m audio's site you click on win 7 64 bit DRIVERS. It still gives you 32 bit drivers! Check that by opening the 610 and click properties on the driver. So reinstall sonar 8.5 and use the 32 bit version. All better. I hope this saves some one hours of pain. Piper21
