OK, so is there an alternative mixing system to the built in one in Windows? Ideally, I'd like to be able to: 1) Allow a specific program to have it's volume boosted if required. 2) Send a program's audio to a different output (even programs that don't offer a choice). 3) Have a less retarded master control - I don't like the way Windows pushes the source sliders around to change the master. Is there some way to achieve something like that? Just curious. Not got a specific requirement as such (mostly a radio stream that's a bit quiet got me curious about boosting one program).
