To change the configuration of the Nullsoft MIDI Player input plug-in use the Ctrl + P keyboard shortcut to open the Winamp Preferences window. Click on "Input" in the "Plug-ins" section on the left-hand side. On the right-hand side click on "Nullsoft MIDI Player" and then click the "Configure" button at the bottom. On the right-hand side of the "Device" tab of the Nullsoft MIDI Player Preferences window you should see the "Volume Control" options. Chose "None" in the selection box and clear the check-mark for the "Use as logarithmic" option. Click the "OK" button at the bottom to close this window and click the "Close" button (bottom left-hand side) to close the Winamp Preferences window. Restart Winamp and try playing a song.
Thank you for the quick answer. However, that did not fix the issue. I still see and hear the lower audio volume from Winamp with MIDI files. Do the newer Winamp prereleases and/or plugins have this MIDI audio volume fix? If it helps at all, my onboard audio from RealTek.
