Windows 7: Mixer behavior

23 May 2010   #11

Windows7 Ultimate 64bit

Aphelion, if you read my specs, I have Asus Xonar HDAV 1.3. That soundcard have it's own dashboard application which controls effects, channel output, volume, and many others. I have many other soundcards that I don't use right now. Every one of them have their own dashboard app, but every single one of them "fails" at the same point, the dashboard app can't control per-application sound level, which Windows Mixer can, here's what I mean:

As you can see, my Xonar's mixer doesn't contain applications slider, but Windows Mixer does. In my soundcard's dashboard, I can only control master volume and that's it. There's no "Wave", or whatever there was in there. I hope this clears things up. I have M-Audio Revo 7.1, same behavior, Terratec DMX6Fire 2496, same behavior, and many others.

I tend to let the volume mixer alone and adjust the volume through my speaker or the program itself especially when listening to music in winamp /foobar

In-Game volume mixer
I love to listen to music when I'm playing games. But I use Spotify, is there a program that works like the volume mixer and lets me only change Spotify's volume instead of constantly minimising the game? (One that over laps the game, like xfire) Thanks In Advance :D
