setup is finished and becomes active immediately.
Loudness Equalization
Many different sources of audio exist on your computer and among all these
sources, the volume can vary drastically. Even within the sources, the
volume can vary. For example, if you are watching a movie in Media Center, at

The Loudness Equalization enhancement has only one setting, which enables
you to fine-tune the sample period. Click the Settings button to adjust it.

navigate and how the information is displayed. Depending on your personal
