So I have been using the loudness equalization setting in realtek for quite a while for gaming and also for watching movies. This feature really help control the audio and saves my ear from hearing those loud noises. But recently i seem to lose control over it. I started playing valorant and as usual i turned on the "Loudness Equalization" setting from realtek audio console. It was all good with the game sound, foot steps and all the gun sounds were lowered automatically which is a good thing. But the problem started when I started listening to the comms of my teammates. I lowered their sound as much as i could but it didnt really affect much with the loudness equalization settings turned on. But if i do turn it off i can lower the comms sound but the games basic sounds like gun firing and footsteps really mess up. So if there's a way I can lower the comms sound manually somehow while keeping the "Loudness Equalization" on it would be helpful

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

If the issue wasn't present prior but the preset was enabled back then, then I'd suspect that the audio drivers might've ended up corrupt. Try uninstalling the audio drivers, then manually reinstall in an elevated command, i.e, Right click installer>Run as Administrator. For the sake of relevance(and since you mentioned Realtek audio) hat motherboard are you working with(assuming you're working with the bundled audio chip) and to that effect what BIOS version are you on?

Hi there thank you for your time. So I had this problem even on windows 10 and its been few months since I upgraded to windows 11. And yeah i did try reinstalling the audio drivers manually but the issue persisted. And yes its the on board audio chip. I am using an MSI B450M bazooka plus with the bios version 7B90v1F5(Beta version). I updated the bios for windows 11 specifically as it made things stable in windows 11.
