Sound Drop-Off After Croossing Atlantic

Recommended Posts

In cruise for 4 hours from EGLL to KIAD the 'total' sound drops off significantly.

Prior to this the 'total sound' level is at the preset level, and when I select another Window the environmental sounds drop off. When the P3D window is reselected, the soundincreases back to preset level.

After 4 hours approximately the overallsound level drops off to the lower level and will not return to preset. When I select the drop-down menu  OPTIONS --> GENERAL, the sound jumps back up to the previous higher level. As soon as I come out of the drop-down menu the overall sund level dropsagain.

Wha'sgoing on?

Windows can be a bugbear at times.

I'd check the Windows sound control panel as a first step to troubleshooting.

In the Sound control panel, under the Communications tab - what is set ?


Ryzen 5800X clocked to 4.7 Ghz (SMT off), 32 GB ram, Samsung 1 x 1 TB NVMe 970, 2 x 1 TB SSD 850 Pro raided, Asus Tuf 3080Ti

P3D 4.5.14, Orbx Global, Vector and more, lotsa planes too.

What version of the sim are you using?  I'm on V6 and this is happening with the V3 A36 and I thought it was something to do with an incompatibility of the aircraft.
