    Map Master Volume & Microphone Level

    So my sound card doesn't have that much dynamic range (perhaps in part to me using my stock Bose amplifier). I tried the map master volume function (to all input) which seems like it would solve my problem but it adjusts the microphone level as well which is not preferable. On top of adjusting the level it also unmutes the microphone which turns into a very obnoxious feedback.

    So, is there any way to get it to work without adjusting the microphone level? Perhaps a new feature for 4/xx/2012

    I searched but unfortunately there are a lot of threads with one of the words; all, input, map, master and volume and any combination thereof... kinda wish there was an option for include all search terms or matches exactly or something.

    Ah crap. But it works and people don't all have Vista+ and brand spanking new sound cards My card isn't bad, it just doesn't have enough dynamic range (perhaps this means it is bad but it works, I own it, it sounds good and it IS a sound blaster so it can't be that bad). 1 is too loud and 100 is too quiet. I find I am constantly changing the winamp volume slider too which is a pain.

    workaround idea.. for me... I'm really new to skinning as all I have done is rip apart other skins but could I change the volume up/down buttons to increment the winamp AND master volume at the same time? I know I could do it with my vb.net app.

    set the winamp volume to max... or close to it
    and then use master volume

    if you dont get enough output from pc to drive your audio system (has nothing to do with DYNAMIC RANGE) get a line driver amp
    PC audio isnt made for cars!!!

    its typically only 1vp-p

    In my case my problem IS dynamic range. If I set the winamp volume at max or close, 100 is loud enough but 1 is too loud to have a conversation. If I put winamp at low, 1 is fine but 100 is not loud enough... thus, dynamic range is too small. A line driver would just make 100 loud enough and 1 too loud.

    Still would be interested in the ability to control winamp volume and master volume at the same time. I tried to code it but the master volume has more VOL+ and - levels than winamp as winamp goes from 5 to 0 instead of 4,3,2,1. Perhaps I'm missing something.

    Why don't you just set different volume profiles up and then recall them.
    EXECTBL.INI
    "PROFILE1","SETVOL;WINAMP;25"
    "PROFILE2","SETVOL;WINAMP;100"
    Now with profile1 you would have conversation mode and with profile2
    you can blow your ear drums.

    You mean have a button to recall the presets? I would prefer to find a way to tie it to the master volume. A preset wouldn't be a whole lot easier than just adjusting the winamp volume manually.

    I was able to map the winamp and master volume together in my vb code using the sdk but I'm not sure how to get it to work within RR directly without if/else and stuff.

    the winamp volume and the master volume arnt related... if you insist on trying to solve what ever problem you have with messing with both volumes
    then your going to have to solve it yourself...

    besides why you having conversations in the car...just play it loud all the time...

    for day to day, there is only need for master volume, i know of no real world car audio, that u mess with the internal source volume...
    pretend u cant touch the winamp volume

    and solve the problem
    -Thanks

    My last radio allowed you to modify source volume. Granted it was a crappy radio but it did.

    Obviously at some point somebody saw it necessary to solve a problem with the map feature. My suggestion: if it is as taboo as you seem to make it sound... remove it. Otherwise, don't chastise somebody that shows interest in it.

    Forgive me for asking about a feature and asking a "help" forum for help. I'll make sure to not bother the forum with my problem any longer.

    the volume map was for OLD OLD soundcards that had bad drivers...
    the VOLUME MAP is the SOUNDCARD, has NOTHING to do with the winamp volume (software volume)

    i didnt say you cant ask, im just telling you, you are the ONLY one who can solve this problem
    no one else can here

    i stand by what i said, i know of no car audio system where i can adjust an indivual audio source volume
    like the volume of the CD part, and the volume of the radio part

    what OS you using, you do know the Audio subsystem in Win7 has been completly redone, and microsoft put thier
    foot down with HW manafactures and their bad drivers, so that in Windows 7, there is only 1 MASTER volume
    no wierd "wave out" stuff...
