I live in an apartment so I cant be too loud at all hours. Ive noticed with DVD movies that the music and sound effects are really loud compared to the voices. I find myself turning the volume up and down to compensate. Is there a software fix for this that would adjust these automatically?
AC3filter has dynamic range control (DRC), and many AV receivers have a 'night mode' or something similar which is basically DRC too. The new Yamahas have a similar thing that kicks in at low volumes (you get DRC), and is off at high volumes (no DRC).
