    Low system sound level, high music level?


    Is there a chance do define two different audio levels?
    I guess I am not the only one listening to music with my computer - so I'd like to avoid awkward and looooud system sounds while turning up my stereo...

    is there a chance to do so? I know that apple has it, not sure bout win7...

    thx

    I think I understand your question. I use powered partner speakers and in my audio controls for my sound card it has output levels and then and then my music manager has it's own. First I set my sound card at around 1/3 volume +- and then go to the mm and set a volume to around 1/2-3/4 full volume. Then at my speakers I adjust the volume to a clear but loud volume. Then going back to the mm I'll use it's volume only which is controlled off my keyboard and it seems to work well. You still will run into situations where things are too load or too soft and other than in your music files there really isn't much you can do about that, just be ready to ride your volume a little.

    Did you open the Mixer?? There's separate audio levels available depending on what applications you have open, System sounds are always listed separately AFAIK.

    I don't use system sound so mine are lowered and muted, see pic.
