Wave balance

  giggsy 21:59 09 May 2004

Evening people. How do I change my sounds settings so that my 'wave' sounds and cd sounds don't run together. It's annoying when I'm playing a cd and a message from my pc, or something on the internet makes a noise and interrupts my enjoyment of playback. How do I make sure that 'wave' and other audio don't clash?
Hope that makes sense!

Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Volume Control. Click the mute box for Wave and then all sounds generated via the wave system will not intefere with the CD player.

Sorry, should have mentioned that I'm using win 98SE. I have tried that, but when I mute the wave volume, the cd I'm playing also mutes.

do not really understand your question you have to have wave volume on or you will get no sound.Have you got a mic connected picking up sound and causing feedback?.

No, sorry. I seem to remember reading somewhere that you could keep the two separate so that playing back of cd's would not be interrupted by other noises from your pc. My memory is pretty bad, but it does ring a few bells. Why does nothing happen when I play a cd and then mute the cs volume in audio properties? Surely it should go quiet?

My Computer>Control Panel>Sounds in the sounds properties box at the bottom you will see `schemes` click on the dropdown arrow , now you should see `no sounds` listed , select it and click on apply , you should be asked to save your settings that your removing , name them with something thats easy to remember .

And when you want your sounds back , select them the same way.
