Windows 7: Volume Structure under Windows 7

Volume Structure under Windows 7

Good Day,

I have a question for anybody that has previously looked into the audio signal path within the windows 7 software structure.

It appears the the level I am getting out of windows, when I look at the windows mixer does not match with the level I am sending out of my audio software within the OS.

Check out the attached video, and compare the level of the internal source with the general output level it seems to be inconstant. Further more it also seems like there is some sort of compression algorithm with a long attack involved.. Look at how long it takes for the level to reach its nominal level.

There is apparently a lot going on but not sure where I am supposed to look into as I cannot find any signal flow diagram that relates to this Microsoft product.

Note that in this example I am first playing a fully masterised tune from media player (its the exact same problem with VLC) and then a sine wave at 0DBFS and also a normalized pink noise.


After you watched that video, do the same experiment and see what you get.

Let me know.

Nono my friend. This issue is due to audio drivers I believe.

Be careful using these comprehensive repair tools they are usually trojan materiel.
