Hi all,

I just sent a quick note to Neal about this (with my talent show submission) 
but this is a question that may be driving some of the rest of you crazy, just 
like it's bugging me, and maybe somebody has an answer so we can get our sanity 

When I play my submission (or other files) in Studio Recorder, they sound fine. 
But when I play it in Winamp, the volume is very low. I am just using Winamp 
lite with no fancy stuff in it; is there a weird sort of limiter built in that 
cranks the volume down or something? Sometimes the sound is so low in Winamp 
that I have to turn the speakers up all the way; true, they're just $30 
speakers but usually they're pretty responsive.

Anybody have a clue how this can be fixed? Is there a magic control in Winamp? 
Or maybe I should just play everything in Studio Recorder and forget Winamp! 
That's very tempting these days, but it would be a bit like bringing up Word 
just to write a one-line text file.

Thanks -
