Song volume way too low

Post by lordphoenix » Mon Sep 03, 2012 8:41 pm

I recently built a new computer and installed MM on it, then copied my old library files over. For whatever reason, songs in MM play very quietly. Just a minute ago I had a youtube song up and it was extremely loud, but with volume maximized in MM right now I can barely hear the song that is playing.

Any idea why this might be happening, or what I could do to fix it?

Thanks :)

Does this change when enabling/disabling Play > Level Playback Volume?

No, it doesn't. I searched almost every setting.

Have you made sure your MediaMonkey Volume isn't set very low? Right click on the MediaMonkey tray icon and make sure Volume is set to 100%.

Thanks for your help! I checked it:

I also checked:

- unchecked 'volume levelling'
- unchecked 'crossfading'

ok, it has nothing do to with MM. Same volum problem when i play a file in Windows Media Player. I guess it has something to do with the audio card configuration.

Lowlander, I just checked this and the Volume was set to 60%. After changing it to 100%, song volume sounds normal again!

After I installed MM on my new computer I did a fresh install of MM, so I guess by default that Volume is set to 60%? I looked through the menus in MM but did not see a Volume option anywhere. It's really sneaky hiding it in the system try icon, which I had never thought to right click :lol:

Thanks again.

Actually volume can be controlled from the Player in most skins. However the only standardized access (no matter what skin) is through the tray icon which is why I send you there.

Thank you!!

It took me a while searching before I came across your post. Mine was set to 10% so I could hardly hear anything. I have no idea why it got changed ... I am pretty certain it was not me.
