Substantial Volume Decrease in Voicemeeter with ASIO on

Post by terrybritton »

Vincent,

I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB interface with an ASIO driver.

If I have ASIO Bridge running directed to the 2i2 having it selected, and use Hi-Fi Cable Output as the Hardware input device in Voicemeeter, I've noticed that if ASIO is in ASIO On mode the volume drops significantly (about 15db). Switching to ASIO OFF returns it to normal volume. I notice that the 2i2 is receiving very low signal levels also. (I wanted to be able to use the 2i2's headphone monitor jack or monitor-outputs.) Am I experiencing normal behavior here?

Thanks!

Terry

for this question, i need more information about audio source and interface used by the player application.
Anyway, VB-CABLE and voicemeeter Virtual I/O do not apply any gain.
However we can have such gain reduction according audio device interface used and player application volume policy.
(for example, audio can pass through windows mixer or not, according cases...)
