Q: Why is the player playing quieter than others? And what is DVC?
A: All normal tracks are normally normalized, i.e. dynamic range is almost completely used. If you amplify any frequencies with an equalizer, you need a range, depending on the selected gain level. The player has overload protection. When you turn on the equalizer, the preamp (the leftmost slider) moves down, and the overall volume goes down to get the necessary dynamic range.
To make the sound louder in versions 1.x and 2.x (on devices without Direct Volume Control), you need to raise the preamp up to reach the desired volume.
Be careful, too high pre-amplification can lead to overloading and the sound can start wheezing, farting and having other distortions associated with going beyond the dynamic range. At 2.x, the "Limit" button can help get rid of these distortions.
If, for example, you do not need to strengthen anything, or you need to weaken something on the contrary, the preamp can be unscrewed to max, thereby using the full dynamic range.
On devices with Direct Volume Control, the sound volume should be similar to the volume of the stock player (provided that the preamp is set to 0). If the volume / sound is very different and / or you hear by ear that the player is playing quieter / worse, then it is the fault of the firmware developers who could not properly implement Direct Volume Control. I advise you to disable it in the player.note
Direct Volume Control - direct volume control. Thanks to him, the player has a greater dynamic range equalizer for 2.3 devices, which allows for example to set the bass to max. without a hint of distortion and without reducing the volume compared with the stock player (in the middle position of the preamp).Post has been editedBlack_BG - 17.02.12, 08:43
