I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but the Rock Band DLC that has been coming out seems to be getting quieter and quieter as the weeks progress.
All DLC was nice and loud until RB3 came out. Then I noticed a decrease in volume on RB3 DLC with Billy Joel and other songs.
Then when P.O.D. came out, it was the quietest DLC I've ever owned. I had to turn it up to hear it well.
I've just bought the Yes pack this week and even it is ridiculously quieter. I have to turn my receiver up for these songs. I played all the Yes songs in a setlist, including RB3, and Roundabout was louder than all the other songs. Proof positive that there is a definite decrease in volume.
I used to play RB at -22.0 db, I have to play RB3 at around -18.0 and this new DLC has me going to -14.0.
The majority of the RBN songs are very loud and I have no problems with them. Steam Powered Giraffe seems to be the loudest DLC out there. If you play them after playing Yes with the volume up, your head could potentially explode.
Constantly adjusting volume for songs is irritating and I was wondering if there was a standard volume level you could use to keep things consistent without leveling out the instruments.
I have an EQ adjuster on my receiver that makes all volume levels the same, but it takes away from the music a lot. Certain things become harder to hear and get smushed together.
Any answers or solutions would be mad rad.
