Is there an AVC program or compandor driver out there to tame windows' wildly varying sound output?
Definition of terms for those unfamiliar or misled:
AVC - NOT VIDEO! In the old days, radios, TVs, etc, had [A]utomatic [V]olume [C]ontrols on them.
COMPANDOR - the backbone of the old AVC systems: it's a combination word made from audio "expander" and audio "compressor".
The problem is that various programs have varying sound output. If I'm watching TV on my system, for instance, I set the sound to some pleasing volume to me. But if I then play a music file, movie or go to some sound site on the net, the sound may come BLARING through on one function, and/or be barely audible on another.
And now after all these years, I'm finally fed up to the teeth with constantly readjusting my volume controls every time I want to hear something - and it's not uncommon for me to have multiple sound sources up where I constantly have to pre-adjust or re-adjust the local sound controls vs. the windows sound control every couple of seconds or minutes. It drives me NUTZ!!!
I find it difficult to believe that I'm the only one on the planet that is bothered by this, and yet I've never been able to find anyone else asking or complaining about it. So I will! ;-)
Does anyone have a solution?
