Songcast Low Volume
I'm using LINN Songcast software on my Windows computer to cast music/video from my computer to my Majik DSM/2 —all works well, except the volume isn't very loud.

How can I increase the volume?

I've used LINN Konfig software to set Volume Offset for other sources (i.e. Phono etc), but there doesn't appear to be option to set this for the Songcast source.

The volume on the computer is at maximum.

Hi 123abc,

Thanks for trying Songcast.

Assuming you've set your DS' volume to a required level whether on the device, via Kazoo or the Songcast widget the next thing to check would be the device-level configuration of Songcast within Windows.

Songcast looks to Windows like an external audio device like a speaker. You can adjust how Windows interacts with Songcast the Control Panel as follows:

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Select "Hardware and Sound"
  3. Click on "Manage audio devices" to display connected sound devices
  4. Select the item labeled "Linn Songcast"
  5. Click on the window's "Properties" button to display Songcast's configuration
  6. Select the "Levels" tab in the displayed properties window
  7. Adjust the volume and balance to suit your preferences
  8. Click the "OK" button to accept your changes



Hopefully this will resolve your issue.

Cheers,

Chris

Chris, thank you for the instructions. The levels volume slider is already set to 100 for Linn Songcast. Is there anything else that could increase the volume?
