    dont think you can use the eq in wmp in fp.
    But you should not have static in your songs. Ive never seen this happen using fp on 3 PC's everyday.
    what type of audio files are you playing? mp3, ogg, wma etc?

    How are you running the sound, is this in a carPC or desktop? I get static when I have my wave volume at 100% but I run mine from a carPC to a headunit...

    Im having the same problem, I get static. I cut down the wave volume and master volume and it has helped. Im gonna try to play the same songs in wmp to see if i get the same results as you.

    im playing the songs from my carputer. ill try putting my master volume and wave volume down and see how that does.

    Bama5150: you gotta mess with the equilizer a little bit to get no static so try that too.

    the static i get happens in both frodo and wmp. I can get it to calm down by lowering the main volume and master volume on the computer, but there are still some places i get it. I am also using an FM modulator. But I used this modulator in another car computer and i didnt get the static at all. This is really bugging me.

    bama, try sticking some headphone into the output port of the soundcard... if there's no static, you know it's not likely a problem with your computer.

    damixt, as others have said, there's no way to change equalizer settings in frodo right now. Frodo himself said this.

    How did the lowering of volume help, if at all?

    i tried lowering the volume on frodo today and that helped out a lot. It sounds so much better, i can only hear the static if i really try to.

    thx
