Volume very low

If i connect over jack plug with my Smartphone, the  volume with foobar is very much lower (too low) in compare with other music apps.
Is it only me who is making this experience ?

You mean the headphone jack? That audio out is controlled by the volume buttons and headphone amplifier. You can check the EQ and preamp settings in Foobar. Try disabling all of the DSP features.

I suggest checking the following settings and modifying them if necessary.
  • Tools > Settings > ReplayGain > Preamp: If your source files has replaygain information and you use it, set preamp levels to 0.0 dB or increase them until you can hear confortably.
  • Tools > Playback Controls > Volume: If the volume level is negative, set it to 0.00 dB. You can modify the volume level also in playback screen depending on skins in use.
  • Tools > Setting > DSP Manager: Check if all DSP are off.

Thanks for the answers,

Changing Preamp in ReplayGain makes the different.

Happy to have the Powersound back !
