Thanks. Meanwhile I’ve been using the default Annapolis profile for movies. It’s really good as a bass booster.
I really appreciate it. I should mention that I didn’t buy the Samsons for studio-purposed. I use them for music and movies, and the occasional gaming every few weeks… I really like them for this purpose, but would like to boost the bass a bit for movies, since I don’t have a separate sub. Is it possible to run DPS without applying any profile, so I could only use the Bass gain thingy?
Thanks for the continued support!
I have rather big speakers, with 8 inch woofers. They’re Samson Resolv A8. They’re marketed as studio monitors, but they aren’t too flat. The Sound on Sound review says the midrange is colored. Overall though, they’re fairly balanced. Could you recommend a profile for these?
Well I gotta say, I’ve just installed version 2.0 and it seems that the problem is 80% gone. I say 80% gone, because there’s a volume increase when I quit DPS, HOWEVER, the actual volume setting doesn’t change. What I mean is that, it stays at whatever volume I was at, but it sounds quieter when DPS is running. I FEEL that there’s also a decrease in clarity when DPS is running (processing: OFF), but it might be due to the volume. My speakers have more volume than I’ll ever need, so I don’t mind this problem, but for laptop users looking to improve their sound, it’s kinda counter-intuitive.
I’ve also noticed that you can’t really use any profiles now, and the default one is rather bassy, even for movies. Anyway, it’s alpha, so I have high hopes for the final product. Will we need to re-buy it when version 2.0 is out?
When I set my speakers back to the default playback device, the volume level goes from whatever it was set to, to 80, which is a bit scary. It also happens whenever I quit DPS. Of course, the sound regains its clarity etc…
When I switch back to DPS as the default, I get the same problem, whether DPS’s processing is on or off.
So basically, no change.
I set my sound card to 24 bit 44.1 khz. Made sure the DPS button is GREY. Played a YouTube video and some TIDAL music. It still sounds boxy, mono and muffled. I’ll send you an email, hopefully version 2.0 doesn’t have this problem.
How do I check whether I use DirectSound or WASAPI?
My sound card has no effects. It’s an ESI Juli@.
Is it possible to get access to the Alpha version of DPS 2.0? I’ve recently bought DPS and found that it doesn’t sound right. Stereo feels like mono (the stereo field becomes severely narrower) and the sound is rather boxy, with lack of clarity. It doesn’t matter what profile I choose, even one for big speakers (which I have). Also, even with DPS off (but still running in the background, with the huge button being grey), everything sounds pretty bad. Someone on another forum suggested that it might be that DPS downsamples my audio or something (I play 24bit FLAC music, for the most part). Anyway, I thought it would be worth trying version 2.0, maybe it would sound better.
