I use Rocksteady dsp plugin to make stuff louder for winamp. It does so well I 
often have the opposite problem. Now if a rocksteady or Sound Solution plugin 
existed in a hardware form to hook up to the stereo or something, it would be

  Subject: [bct] volume differences when playing audio files in different 

  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 -
