Hello. I have a question to ask and hopefully find an answer and solution. I ahve been wondering about this issue for some time now.
Is there a means or a way to automatically set the audio sound (volume) level to the SAME level for my Windows 7 64-bit operating system *FROM ANY AUDIO SOURCE/DEVICE*?
When I say 'from any source/device ', I mean any audio source/device program that is: native to Windows (example: Windows Media Player and alike), a motherboard onboard audio (example: Realtek HD audio software interface with driver), an audio sound card PCI or PCI-E card (example: a Creative software suite for with driver), a standalone third party program (example: Winamp Media Player), and/or a standalone hardware device (example: using an MP3 portible player through the computer's USB port). I am sure you are aware that the volume level on one audio source/device program is INDEED DIFFERENT from another audio source/device program. I will even add that online video/audio interfaces like YouTube.com have audio/video clips that play different volume levels.
I am aware each audio source/device product's programming has different drivers and different GUI interface program where the user can regulate a volume level for a particular audio source/device product -- that EACH audio source/device controls the volume form their prospective sources/device SEPARATELY. I am looking for a program that controls and sets the audio volume at the SAME level from DIFFERENT audio sources/device products . Obviously, this program would have to be a third program to achieve this objective.
Theoretically, one programming method for this program would need to pre-set the volume from all audio sources/devices programs in some sort of customizable/configurable manner FIRST; then when you adjust this particular audio source/device program's volume that regulates the volume specifically from all other audio sources/device programs. Therefore everything that you play, the audio level is the SAME volume. I find this programming method complicated and not sure if something like this exists today. I may be surprised that something of sorts DOES exist.
Realistically, another programming method is this audio product's programming would have some inherent auto leveling or 'sensing' volume capability with settings to achieve the desired or user set volume level. A good objective analogy is when the Philips Magnavox TV's SmartSound feature native to many manufactured TVs automatically sensed the volume from a particular TV broadcast and automatically set the volume consistent between TV programming and TV commercials. Since TV commercials broadcasted were often more louder than the TV programming, the volume would be lowered during the playing of TV commercials. I had such an old analog TV with such features that worked very well. If this same type of audio sensing technology is available today for Microsoft PCs, please provide me that information.
Please provide your own best possible well written, detailed and documented website links hopefully with images and demonstrations along with the instructions and/or your personal suggestions, hints, and tips. Thank you!!
