Description

What's the problem?

When using WASAPI as audio backend, the volume can only be controlled by the Dolphin volume and not by the Windows volume while Xaudio and Cubeb can both be controlled by the Windows volume.

Is this correct? If so, maybe it should be mentioned in the settings.

History

I think this is a consequence of whatever exclusive audio mode Windows uses.

#2 Updated by filoppi 10 months ago

This is the way WASAPI works, by skipping the Windows mixer, which lowers latency and possibly avoids additional resamplings.
This in not an issue, but I've added a tooltip in the UI to explain that now, will push soon.
