  • Installer audio plays welcome message at full volume!

    The audio message accompanying the installer plays at full volume causing great concern for audio equipment.

    I have my system configured to play music through Pure Music on top of iTunes.
    My mac laptop acts as the digital input to a high-end audio system.

    I was listening a moderate volume levels.

    Out of curiousity I thought I would see what WinAmp was up to these days.
    I downloaded the 0.8.1 dmg file and dragged it over to the Apps folder as offered by installer app.

    As the music continued to play at moderate level a man's voice announcing WinAmp at full volume level. This caused me considerable alarm and concern for the well-being of the audio equipment.

    Some feedback on this decidedly unpleasant introduction to WinAmp.

    1. Who said I wanted audio blasting out during install?
    2. Why does your audio ignore the settings I currently have in place?
    Other system sounds like alerts, etc., play through the current audio settings.
    3. It was v-e-r-y loud. The audio system is at risk from that kind of overload.
    There wasn't any damage thankfully, but who knows for others?

    Please note that while yes the volume blasted only for the install, I did have my system tweaked in an odd way due to the iTunes volume slider interacting with the system volume. This caused me to turn up the physical system with a remote not understanding that I had raised the level as much as I did.

    Still, the existing playback had moderate level.

    Unless there is more to this issue that what I experienced, I would consider this a corner case and not worry about it.

        I also encountered the same problem - during installation beaten so loud sounds that my speakers do not work then (
