Speaker volume auto-adjustment?

Q: Speaker volume auto-adjustment?

Hi, I'm fed up forever adjusting my PC speaker volume up or down to suit whatever sound is coming out (vids, games, music etc).
I saw a youtube vid a while back where the guy said it's possible with a small app or prog or something to pre-set the volume level you want, so that all sounds automatically come out at a comfortable volume.
For example if you set '5' on a scale of 1 to 10,the prog will auto-adjust everything to come out of the speakers at level 5. 
I can't find the vid again but if anybody knows what app he was talking about I'd definitely like to get it.
I'm Win XP Home

Hi,
 
I sing in a barbershop quartet & chorus.  We use recordings of a quartet to practice our songs.  The recordings are in stereo, with my part on one speaker and the other three parts on the other speaker, so my part is louder than the others when the speakers are balanced.  When I think I have the song learned, I use the following sequence to adjust the balance, so that my part is silenced:
 
Control Panel
Hardware & Sound
Sound
Speakers (default device)
Levels tab
Balance button
Drag left speaker to zero volume
 
I've managed to create a desktop icon for "Sound", eliminating the first two steps, but I still have to do the rest, and it's cumbersome.  Is there any way to automate more of this process?
 
Thanks,
 
Lou

A:Automate Speaker Balance Adjustment

If you go to the right hand end of your taskbar do you have an icon for you sound system, it may be in 'Hidden icons' ?  If you double click on this icon it should open the sound system control panel. If you have a mixer control, click on this and you may see volume sliders for left and right channels, just turn the LH channel to zero. This does depend on the sound system on your computer though, but should be quicker than going through 'Control panel'.
 
As a really quick and dirty solution, assuming you are using external speakers, how about just unplugging the left hand one ?

Hi there. This is my 1st post. A friend gave me this site.
I have a P3 667 that is overclocked to 910hz on an Abit
BE6-II(2) board. It has an Nvidia Riva TnT2 model 64 in it.
I recently had the 20 gig hard drive crash.
It was a Samsung 5400rpm. I had a friend replace it with a
30 Gig Western Digital Caviar 7200rpm. ( A great upgrade,
I must say). At this time I also replace my 5yr old monitor with
a new MagView 17" monitor. Much better for my RPG games,
etc. ( the better to see you with, hahaha )
Here are the issues I'm having:
1. Sometimes ( but not always), when booting up initially,
or when trying to run games like Baldur's Gate 2/
Diablo2/ or even Ms Office 2000,
my computer will start a very distinct 2 tone alarm -
waah -ahh, waah-ahh, waah-ahh. Sounds like the cops
are after me! Very Annoying !!! It does not stop until
I close out the program. It also does it if I have several
windows open online - especially if there are heavy or lots of
moving graphics. I had all these programs running b4
on my old hard drive. Any Ideas or thoughts would be very
helpful.
2. I was able to install my version of Diablo 1 - however, in
the game there are menu settings, including 1 called gamma.
I am not able to adjust his at all. This game does NOT make
the alarm sound. Very Odd. Again, Any Ideas or
thoughts would be very helpful.
I'm not sure if they are graphics related, monitor,
hard drive, combination or what, but It make me crazy ?!?
And right now I'... Read more

A:alarm sounds from pc speaker/No Gamma adjustment

The alarm sound could be because of excess heat, especially a problem with the overclocking. Heat could have caused the hard drive to fail as well. check and make sure that all of your fans are working properly and if so, you may want to add some.

A:Volume adjustment

Welcome to the sevenforums! Spoons896

Are you using onboard or an addon card? It sounds like the Windows sound mixer is all the way up. If you set WMP as the default player the volume control on that will effect the play back of wav files assigned to Windows functions.

The software for onboard or a card installed generally has a sound mixer as well if that went on good. Another place is clicking on the "sound" link in the Control Panel and highlighting the "what'u hear" item in order to click the properties button. On the next screen that comes up open the "levels" tab for a slide adjuster there.

I recently discovered a difference in the volume; the left speaker of the laptop has been functioning normally while there seems to be very low to no sound coming from the right speaker.

Any suggestions?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 5559 Audio - Right Speaker has low volume while the left speaker functions normally

Hello.You didn't mention the headphone jack, so if you have not yet done so, plug in headphones and see if the balance is okay in them. If the headphones check out okay, then most probably it's a problem related to the speakers.
The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if the test  tones are very low in the right speaker, but normal in the left speaker, then there is hardware failure somewhere, related to the right speaker.
If both speakers sound normal during the test, then the problem is in the software. Do the usual things like re-install the audio driver, check the balance levels in the Sound properties, try different audio sources, etc.
Re-installing the audio driver resets the settings to their default configurations, so if you do it then you don't have to bother with things like volumes and balance settings, because they will be okay.(Also if the balance is okay through headphones, then it should be okay through the speakers too.)
Here is how to do a simple driver re-install:
1.    Open the Device Manager.2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer.

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread. Does anyone know how to adjust the volume for all the songs on the ipod to +100%? instead of doing it individually for each song.

For those who dont know what i mean go to itunes then on your ipod right click a song and click "Get Info" go to the "options" tab.

How about simply selecting all the songs on the iPod, right-clicking & selecting "Get Info", you tick the volume check box & set it to 100% & then click apply. It will set it to the all songs you had selected.

Hi all

I have a problem with my monitor that started yesterday, after 5-6 years of no problems at all. A blue box saying 'auto adjustment' keeps popping up every 2 seconds in the middle of my screen, occasionally making it slide up and down. Eventually it goes away and everything is normal again, then 20 minutes later it pops back up.
Through asking various people I've realised it might be something to do with the buttons on the front of my monitor being stuck or broken. I've tried wiggling them about and pushing them repeatedly, but all this has resulted in so far is them getting stuck mid-way while I've been going through the options and then being stuck with a dark grey screen.
I've checked the cables and everything seems fine (as far as I can tell), so is my monitor just coming to the end of its useful life, or has something just gone wrong with it?

Any help would be appreciated, as I'm starting to see flashing blue boxes wherever I look.

Thanks.

The message is most likely being generated by your display and not the computer. The display may be configured to use a given video format and input connector, but is getting a different video format from the computer. It then needs to readjust to work with the actual signals coming in. You may be able go into the display's on screen menus and adjust them to match what is coming out of the computer.

I set my monitor to a set brightness that I want, but I sometimes see my screen dimming and brightening on its' own, even when I'm actively using my laptop. I think 10 must have some kind of auto-brightness adjustment capability, that detects lighting conditions around me and adjusts my brightness accordingly. This is acceptable if my Android smartphones do this, since I'm always on the go and in varying indoor/lighting conditions, but I'm usually stationary when using my notebook and don't want 10 adjusting the brightness to anything other than what I explicitly set it to. Besides, there are softwares that do this far better, like f.lux. My Intel graphics driver is also installed, so maybe that could be playing a factor.

How can this aggravating, malformed "feature" be disabled?

Hi everyone,

I have only recently upgraded to Vista from XP, I'm very pleased with everything apart from this sound problem, which from what I've read is very common. I was hoping to watch movies on my new widescreen monitor, but the sound is just not loud enough with all settings on max.

The problem I'm having is that my speaker volume is very low, I'm using fairly old speakers, but these speakers were very loud on my old computer running XP.

Anyway I've installed the latest Realtek driver & it has made no difference what so ever. Every setting is set to max volume, does anyone know how I can boost the volume? Or maybe someone else has had this problem & found a solution, I'm wondering if new speakers will make any difference?

The only sure-fire solution I think of so far is installing XP, which would mean losing Vista, as I've not got a disc with it on, the computer came with it loaded already.

If so, exactly when do you get lower volume levels? Does this happen with certain programs?

Can you give us the details of what you have checked so far? We have no way of know what you mean by, "all".

Some details about the sound controller hardware being used as well as what operating system you are running may help us to help you. Do you have a separate sound card or is sound built-into the motherboard?

After the most recent Windows 10 update, my speaker volume has decreased substantially. The change in volume pre- to post-update is very evident. I use my speakers very often so I would like to fix this problem as soon as possible.  Thanks

The right (volume control) speaker has lost about 80% of its volume. If you hold it to your ear, you can hear that it has sound. Left speaker is fine.

I purchased a set of new speakers - no good.
I ran OEM Sound Diagnostics - no good.
I have run every audio test and made every volume adjustment that I can find to make.

Is it the sound card?

Hey, recently i was palying my music pretty loud with a few friends over and the volume spider on the speakers broke. as in they're always on the top now, i can turn down the pc volume to 0 and still hear static buzzing. its really getting anoying, i thought i could deal with it and jsut turn the volume on my pc down but its getting to the point where its crackling and making lo screeching noises. is there an application thats able to change the volume on the speakers themselves and not the pc?
 

A:Speaker volume broke

Speakers are very fragile. The failure rate is very high when they are over-driven. The only real fix is to replace the speakers, and perhaps the audio card as well.

when i restart my computer the sound icon on the taskbar is missing, yet when i go to the control panel and select the sound it is checked. it says place volume icon in the taskbar. If I uncheck it and then click apply and check it again and click apply it comes back. I am not hiding any icons on the taskbar. This is a new computer only a few weeks old.
What could be the trip?

In the last week or so I've noticed that on many sites, even when I've got the volume at it's highest and my speakers turned all the way on I'm barely able to hear what's being said. The speakers seem to be working properly - I hear through both of them but not as loud as it was before - I always had to keep the settings at their lowest.
Any idea why this has happened and is there somewhere to re-set the volume?

Maybe the speakers are dying... Have you tweaked any sound settings/drivers/sound cards, etc?

I am not sure if this is a Windows 7 problem but it seems to have occurred since I upgraded

Whenever I am speaking on Skype or listening to a video the speaker volume slowly decreases on the volume bar until it reaches zero. I have tried searching in control panel to make sure all the correct boxes are ticked but cannot resolve the problem. Any ideas guys.
