What windows volume setting corresponds to an ungained signal? 2011-04-15 23:10:46 This is one of those things that I am surprised to have not found much information about.I have seen a number of posts that say you should set windows volume to around 80%, but to me, this appears to be very far from the truth.Procaster (a streaming program) has a mixer, which reads out 0 dB when windows volume is set to 13.I have an Asus Xonar DX soundcard which outputs toslink PCM to my headphone amplifier/DAC. The control panel shows the levels in the frequency bands, and displays from -20 dB to 20 dB. While the volume is set to 13, What I believe so far is that there is a possibility of 20 dB boost, but that the control panel does not show the actual level relative to 0 dB.When I use Renoise, I can record my Stereo Mix, and the levels on the recording look to be about the same as those shown by the Foobar peak meter, i.e. 0 dB, when my windows volume is 50.I guess it should be set to 50, but I am still pretty confused. If someone would clear up the 20 dB thing for me, it would be good.
