I sometimes listen to a live stream of a radio station but, ever since I re-installed Winamp (since my Windows crashed), I noticed that the DJs' voices are extremely "low," for lack of a better word. It's not that the volume is low, but their voices are deeper and slower. Is this a problem from the station's end, or from my Winamp's end?

Thanks.

Since you re-installed after a crash, make sure the EQ is set back where it was. Also, did you have any DSP plugins that may need to be reactivated, or installed?

Not sure what "DSP" plug-ins are - I don't think I had ANY plug-ins.

I'll check out the EQ (although, does that affect the speed of the stream?).

Thanks!

UPDATE

The EQ settings didn't help with the problem I'm experiencing. The sound comes out a bit slow, sort of like playing a 45-speed vinyl record at 33-speed (but not as exaggerated).

Any other suggestions?

For DSP Plug-ins:

preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plug-ins > DSP/effect > Select "(none)" > Close

ok, well what it sounds like to me is that your soundcards reg files are corrupt. do all other software, eg. games and such work smoothly??

Wow...just as I was reading your message, my "you've got mail" message sounded - it sounded a bit "lower" than usual. Maybe it IS the soundcard? UGH! I just had to do a clean re-install! Can this be easily fixed, or am I looking at even MORE computer heartache?

PS: I'm listening to a radio station via MP3 right now. Two questions:

1. could that have affected the quality of my "you've got mail" message?

2. Before my windows crashed, I was able to listen to the radio station without the annoyance of my AOL sounds, like IM and mail notification. Now, though, I get those sounds in addition to the MP3 stream. Are there settings I could adjust to minimize the computer sounds while listening to Winamp?

Thanks for your ongoing help and sorry about this complicated post.

Pre-crash: Windows 95
Now: Windows 98

And, for the record, my other computer sounds work just fine - it's just the winamp. Could it be the fault of the radio station, itself?
