Does anyone know why this audio driver produces such a difference in audio level when booting between Win XP and Win7? In Win7 I am using Analog Devices driver version 126.96.36.19985 and I can barley hear an IM voice, a Video playback, or when editing video in Pinnacle Studio 14. I have adjusted the level to the top in the speaker level panel. Then if I go back to Win XP when the bootup occurs the Win XP splash screen audio just about knocks me off the chair if I forget to turn the powered speaker system down with the desktop volume control. Although the onboard integrated sound system is working OK, this is certainly an anoying problem that I would like to know how to adjust so both Windows operating systems produced comparable sound levels out to the powered speaker system.
