How to Fix Problems With SW Synth


Phoenix21

Likes # 0

I run Windows XP and use Incredimail. I have been having problems with SW Synth for a long time. It frequently resets itself to zero whilst I am using IM, and I have to have the Master Volume Control open the whole time so I can keep dragging the SW Synth marker up so I can hear the midis. As soon as I start another midi playing, back it goes to zero. The only way to stop this happening is to turn Incredimail off and then go back into it, but this only works for a short time. I have also tried doing restarts and restores, all to no avail.

Does anyone know what causes this, and is there any way to permanently prevent it happening?

Further to my query regarding SW Synth, does anyone know if it is possible to download an alternative "Master Volume" control, or is it part of Windows XP? Also, does it have a driver and could this be causing the problem? Any suggestions will be most gratefully accepted!

You could try updating your Audio driver, or if you have a Sound Card fitted update that items' driver. Another thing is to update your Direct X software.
