  1. This article is taken from https://lrepacks.ru/repaki-multimedia-programm/350-letasoft-sound-booster-repack.html The program can be used as an audio amplifier, when the sound level in the program you are using is insufficient, and you know for sure that the speakers of your computer can produce a louder sound. Features of the program: • Sound in any application that is played in the system can be amplified up to 5 times. The program can strengthen sound in such programs as web browsers, programs for communication (Skype, MSN, Live and others), as well as in any media player. Simply put, the volume of any program that can produce any sound in Windows can be amplified to a level comfortable for listening with Sound Booster. • You can control the current volume level using the slider that appears when you click on the icon in the system tray. You can also assign hotkeys to increase or decrease the volume and use them when working in any Windows application. • Sound Booster can start automatically every time Windows starts. This can be useful if the speakers your computer is too quiet, and their volume is insufficient for everyday use. • Sound Booster constantly monitors the current level of the signal, and prevents the exceeding of the maximum level, thus reducing any distortion. • Sound Booster uses two methods to increase the sound volume: inserting into application code and global effects. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. In order to cover as much as possible all possible sound sources, both methods are enabled by default. In addition, you can enable the Super Strengthen mode, which will add volume, but can also cause minor distortion. We recommend trying different modes to achieve maximum volume. Features of repacking: 1. Does not require registration (patch pawel97) 2. Interface Language English / Russian 3. Optional installation in the system startup 4.

  4. The new sound settings are now ready for public testing After getting back from GNOME's GUADEC 2017 developer conference, Canonical's Didier Roche has started a daily blog series about the Unity to GNOME Shell transition for the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) release. One of the key features of Ubuntu's Unity desktop environment was to allow users to raise the volume over the 100% limit using the multimedia keys of their laptops. The setting wasn't available in other popular desktop environments, such as GNOME, to which Canonical wants to transition for Ubuntu 17.10. Last month, the Ubuntu Desktop team shared their plans to implement the same functionality in their modified GNOME Shell user interface for Ubuntu 17.10, and Didier Roche reports today that the feature is ready for public testing, though it still needs a bit of work until it's ready to land in the stable repository. "Some devices have very low volume even when pushed at their maximum. One example for this is the x220 when most of videos on YouTube, or listening to music in Rhythmbox doesn’t give great results even at maximum volume," said Didier Roche. "PulseAudio can amplify some of those sound devices." Here's how to test the new sound amplification on Ubuntu 17.10 If you're running Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) on your personal computer and you're willing to test the new sound amplification implementation, go ahead and add Canonical's official Ubuntu Desktop Team Transitions PPA to your repositories, and do a full update using the commands below. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/transitions sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade Once you've installed the PPA and updated your Ubuntu 17.10 operating system, you should be able to raise the volume over the 100% limit using the media keys on your laptop or a physical, dedicated volume button, if available. Please note that you'll have to enable the "Allow louder than 100%" option in the Sound panel in GNOME Control Center. Check out the video below to see it in action!
  5. Windows 10’s Creators Update added support for Dolby Atmos positional sound. This includes two things: Support for Dolby Atmos hardware and virtual Dolby Atmos sound that works in any pair of headphones. The Dolby Atmos for headphones feature is a bit weird. It appears in the standard Windows control panel as an option, but it requires a free trial or $14.99 purchase via the Windows Store before you can actually use it. What Is Dolby Atmos? Traditional 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound uses 5 or 7 speaker channels. When you watch a movie or play a game with surround sound, that movie or game is actually sending 5 or 7 separate channels of sound to your speakers. Dolby Atmos is an improved type of surround sound. It isn’t mixed into several separate channels; instead, sounds are mapped to virtual locations in 3D space, and that spatial data is sent to your speaker system. A Dolby Atmos-enabled receiver then uses specially calibrated speakers to position these sounds. Dolby Atmos systems may include ceiling-mounted speakers above you or speakers on the floor that bounce their sound off the ceiling, for example. This feature requires Dolby Atmos-enabled hardware, notably a Dolby Atmos-enabled receiver. Microsoft also just added Dolby Atmos support to the Xbox One, and many Blu-ray discs include Dolby Atmos audio. Windows 10’s Creators Update also added a separate feature named “Dolby Atmos for headphones”. This feature promises improved positional audio in any pair of headphones or earbuds. You don’t need special Dolby Atmos headphones. It’s a type of virtual surround sound built into Windows. Really, this is a completely different feature that’s only linked by Dolby’s branding. True Dolby Atmos requires a hardware receiver and special speaker setup, while Dolby Atmos for headphones is a digital signal processor (DSP) that takes surround sound from your PC and mixes it to offer an improved positional sound experience in headphones. Some games have already added support for Dolby Atmos for headphones. For example, Blizzard’s Overwatch includes built-in Dolby Atmos support, and it works even if you’re not running Windows 10’s Creators Update. You can enable this feature from Options > Sound > Dolby Atmos for Headphones in Overwatch. Blizzard argues that Atmos offers an improved experience that allows you to more easily pinpoint where sounds are coming from in the game. How to Enable Dolby Atmos on Windows 10 To start using this feature, download the Dolby Access app from the Windows Store and launch it. The app will guide you through setting this up. If you have Dolby Atmos receiver you want to use with your PC, select “With my home theater”. If you want to use any pair of headphones, select “With my headphones”. If you select a home theater PC, you’ll be given a link to enable the “Dolby Atmos for home theater” option in the Windows Sound settings control panel. After you do, the app will prompt you to calibrate your system. There’s no additional purchase necessary for the home theater option—you just need the hardware. If you select headphones, you’ll be prompted to confirm your PC’s sound hardware supports the Windows 10 spatial audio platform for headphones. Modern PCs should have sound drivers that support this feature, but you may be out of luck if you have a much older PC you’ve upgraded to Windows 10. The Dolby Atmos for headphones feature isn’t free. While Microsoft integrated it into Windows, Microsoft clearly didn’t pay the licensing fees to allow any Windows user to use it. You can still try Dolby Atmos for headphones for free, however. Click the “30-day trial” button to enable it. Once you’ve enabled the free trial, you’ll be prompted to enable Dolby Atmos for headphones. Click the “Configure PC settings” button and then select “Dolby Atmos for headphones” in the Spatial sound format box. This option actually appears in the properties window for your audio device even if you don’t have the Dolby app installed. However, if you try to enable this feature without installing the app first, Windows will prompt you to install the Dolby Access app from the Windows Store first. How to Test Dolby Atmos The Dolby Access app will allow you to test Dolby Atmos by playing a variety of videos that support Dolby Atmos audio. While the videos are impressive enough, you’ll want to actually test Dolby Atmos by playing some PC games or watching some surround sound-enabled videos before paying for it and see if you can notice an appreciable difference. Some people say they notice an improvement, while others don’t notice much of a difference. It likely depends on the games you’re playing videos you’re watching, too. When testing Dolby Atmos, be sure to enable 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound in whatever game or application you use. The application will then produce surround sound, and Dolby Atmos will mix it to stereo sound for your headset. You’re free to test Dolby Atmos for 30 days, after which it will cost $14.99 to buy Dolby Atmos for headphones support from the Windows Store. How to Try Microsoft’s Free Alternative, Windows Sonic for Headphones Windows 10’s Creators Update also offers a free “Windows Sonic for Headphones” option you can enable instead of Dolby Atmos. Just right-click the speaker icon in your system tray, select “Playback Devices”, click your playback device, and click “Properties”. On the Spatial sound tab, select “Windows Sonic for Headphones”. You may want to test this feature to see how it compares to Dolby Atmos for Headphones in your games and videos. We’ve seen some people say it doesn’t work quite as well as the Dolby Atmos option in their experience, but we’ve also seen some people say they don’t notice much of a difference. When it comes to sound, everyone often has their own opinion. Audio quality can be very subjective. Article source
  6. New Realtek HD Audio is up for grabs Well known for its Audio chipsets and more, Realtek has made available a new version of its High Definition Audio package, namely, which should include some small improvements in terms of stability, performance, as well as sound quality. When it comes to compatibility, this package is suitable for both 32- and 64-bit variants of Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating systems, including the Redstone (RS) and Threshold (TH) anniversary editions of Windows 10. However, since different OSes might also seem valid at first, installing Realtek’s update on other OSes isn’t recommended and should not be performed, as this might lead to malfunctions that would require you to remove it and apply the previous driver. Therefore, save and extract the package, go to Device Manager, right-click on “High Definition Audio Device,” select “Update Driver Software,” browse and select the newly-created folder, and agree with the installation by pressing the “Next” button. Afterward, simply follow all instructions displayed on the screen, and wait patiently during the upgrade. Once finished, it would be a good idea to perform a system reboot to allow the changes to take effect properly. That said, download Realtek HD Audio Driver for your appropriate system configuration, apply it to your computer, and constantly check our website to stay up to speed with the latest releases. Source
  7. In this article, I have compiled a list of 5 free Sound meter Android apps to measure environmental noise. These Android apps will measure the noise around you and display a real-time graph of the noise level readings. These apps will tell you the current noise level and other stats like peak noise, minimum, and average noise levels. Some of the apps can even show the current noise levels in the Android notification area. This allows you to quickly check noise levels any time you want. However, these noise meter apps can’t measure higher noise levels due to the limitations of devices. Some of the noise meter apps also let you measure the light intensity. Sound Meter by Smart Tools: Sound Meter is a free Android app to measure noise from your surrounding environment. It uses the microphone in your device to measure noise around you in decibels. A real-time graph of the noise level is also plotted by the app and you can also get to know the smallest, average, and the highest noise level value. The best part is that you can pause the noise recordings and even reset it. It also keeps the phone screen on while monitoring noise around you. Do note that it can’t measure the high noise levels due to the limitations of devices. However, it can be used perfectly to monitor noise levels in homes, traffic, or in a library, etc. In addition to this, it also gives you the option to capture the screenshot of the app with just a tap on the Camera button. The pro version of the app also allows you to log the recorded noise levels to a CSV file. Read Sound Meter detailed review. Noise Meter: Noise Meter is another free Android sound meter app to log environmental noise. It updates the noise levels in the real-time and shows you the peak, mean, and minimum noise levels in decibels. This app gives you the option to choose whether you want to keep the screen on while measuring noise level readings, hide the status bar, and see the peak, max, and min noise levels. Another good aspect of this app is that it supports multiple languages like Arabic, English, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, etc. In addition to noise, you can also measure light intensity in lux. In order to measure light intensity, open the app preferences and then Input>>Input type>>Light. After that, you can see the real-time measure of light intensity on its main interface. Another exciting feature of this sound meter app is that you can run the measurement process in the background and change its update frequency from 0.5 sec to 10 minutes. Sound Meter by Abc Apps: Sound Meter by Abc Apps is a free Android app to measure sound pressure levels of your surroundings. Just like other noise meter apps on my list, it shows a real-time gauge of the noise levels. It also calculates the minimum, maximum, and average noise level while measuring noise from the environment. It also plots a real-time graph of the noise level readings. In addition to this, you can also pause and reset noise measuring process. You can also choose to keep the screen on while recording noise levels. Check it out from the link above. Sound Analyzer App: Sound Analyzer App is another Android app to test noise levels. It is quite an advanced Android noise meter app as it shows various other sound parameters as well which I am not quite aware of. So, any person with expertise in sound analyzing can take the best out of this app. As per our intentions. we just need to measure the noise level from our surroundinds which this app can do effortlessly in the real-time. Just like most of the other apps, it shows a real-time graph of the noise levels and also the peak and minimum sound level. In addition to this, you can also pause, resume, and reset the noise measurement process with this app. Deciber: Deciber is the last Android app on my list to measure environmental noise levels. An Interesting feature of Deciber is that it uses the camera of your phone to display the photo of your surroundings in the app interface. You can then take a screenshot which will capture the noisy thing or any noisy environment with the sound pressure level. After that, you can share the captured screenshot to anyone to prove that you were in a noisy environment or so. It measures the noise in decibels and frequency in hertz and also it updates the noise readings in real-time. Read the detailed review of Deciber. Verdict: In this article, I introduced you to 5 free Android apps to measure noise levels. So, if you want to check out the current noise level in your surroundings, then these apps will show you a real-time update of it. All the apps are quite similar as they show a real-time noise level and update it every few seconds but some apps provide some additional features like measuring light intensity, change the update frequency, measure noise levels in the background, and many others.

    [Sound Drivers] Help!

    Might be a memory blank, however some help will be appreciated please. I updated sound drivers, they are mobo related. I have my headphones plugged in and I get sound via the speakers too. Had this before and forgot how to correct problem. Can anyone help me sort out sound NOT to come out of speakers when head phone jack is being used.
  9. In modern PCs, the internal PC speaker is often also connected to the PC's audio solution, so that it allows the PC to play a beep even when there are no external speakers connected to the machine. If your Windows 10 PC runs without speakers connected or with the sound drivers not working or disabled, you might hear an annoying beeping sound for example when a message box notification displays. If you are annoyed by this beep sound, you might be interested in disabling it. Here is how you can do it. To disable the PC Speaker beep sound in Windows 10, you need to do the following. Right click the Start button in the taskbar. In the context menu of the Start button, select Command Prompt (admin): This will open a new elevated command prompt instance. 3. Type the following command: sc stop beep This will disable the beep sound immediately. 4. Now, type the following command: sc config beep start= disabled This will disable the beep sound permanently, so it won't become re-enable after you reboot your Windows 10 PC. After doing this, the annoying beep sounds from the PC speaker will stop in Windows 10. In Windows 10, the PC speaker sound is controlled by the driver and the appropriate service named 'beep'. You can find it in Registry as shown below: The mentioned commands will disable it. That's it. Credit to
  10. Time to upload the video: no less than 6 hours If you’re in love with Windows 7 and have absolutely no intention of moving to Windows 10, here’s something that you might actually enjoy: an extension of the Windows 7 startup sound that lasts no less than 24 hours. So basically, what this video does is to allow you to listen to the Windows 7 startup sound for 24 hours continuously, but without actually putting the original track on repeat. It’s an extension that makes the Windows 7 startup sound seem really mystical, so you might actually want to let it play in the background while you continue working - we bet that you’ll close it after 10 minutes at most, anyway. In case you’re wondering how hard it was to actually create such a long version of the Windows 7 startup sound, the uploader of the video says it took 1 full hour just to render the video and no less than 6 hours to upload it on YouTube. And this makes perfect sense, given the fact that the size of the video was no more, no less than 20 GB. And if you’re trying to find a good reason for someone to create such a long version of a startup sound, you’d better not. Some people seem to like them, anyway, so click the play button below and see what it’s like for yourselves. Video Article source
  11. New side-channel attack leverages coil whine New attack can extract encryption keys from coil whine sounds Sound emanating from different components exchanging data inside a computer can leak cryptographic keys, a team of five researchers from the University of Tel Aviv has discovered. The researchers exploited coil noise, also known as coil whine, a term used to describe the sound made by coils and other components as electrical current passes through them. The team of five says they can measure this sound and extract binary operations from the soundwaves. By knowing the exact pattern of bits, they can reverse engineer computer operations. New side channel attack can compromise RSA-4096 encrypted comms If the computer is engaged in cryptographic data exchanges, the researchers claim they've identified multiple side channel attacks for extracting the encryption key needed to start decrypting the exchanged content. Researchers say that the attack relies on inexpensive equipment, usually cheap microphones, along with sound recording and analysis software. Attack works with cheap microphones and even with pita bread Their attack works against any computer as far as 10 meters away using a parabolic microphone. If carrying around a huge glass-encased microphone like the one from the photo below might give away your villainous intentions, the researchers said there are less conspicuous ways to perform the attack. Attack rig relying on powerful microphones A malicious party could also use his smartphone's microphone and a consumer-grade radio receiver. This attack works as far as 30 cm away from the target, so placing your phone next to someone's computer at work or at a cafe would be enough. The downside is that this portable attack takes more time, usually around or more than an hour. Additionally, if you really want to stand out among your spy friends, the researchers also created an electronic device embedded in a pita bread that can also extract cryptographic keys, but through the means of electromagnetic waves. In fact, four of the five scientists that have contributed to this research have previously published another study in February of this year that extracted encryption keys from electromagnetic waves emitted by a computer placed in another room, through a wall. Mitigations exist. Some work better than others The researchers also presented a series of countermeasures. Hardware-based solutions would have users deploy Faraday cages or sound-absorbing equipment around their laptops. Even the researchers admitted that these are very impractical in the real world. Software-based solutions are easier to implement. The researchers say that blinding attackers by inserting random data in encrypted communications is a more fitting solution to mitigate these attacks. Based on their recommandations, the GnuPG project has already added ciphertext randomization to their software. The full research paper, titled Physical Key Extraction Attacks on PCs, is available on the website of the Association for Computing Machinery.

  12. Fingerprint scanners are becoming the norm for unlocking our mobile devices these days, while iris and facial recognition are also being explored, but the next big solution in biometric authentication might be something that can only come from inside your head. Literally. A group of university researchers in Germany have come up with a system that uses a unique sound that comes from within a user's skull. "SkullConduct," as it's called, uses a bone conduction speaker and microphone connected to a user's head. The researchers created a device by modifying a Google Glass wearable, so that when it's worn, it plays a 1-second clip of audio that is imperceptible to the user. The microphone is then able to pickup and record that sound after it's passed through their skull. Because the shape of someone's skull is unique, and thus the way the sound bounces around inside is as well, the signal that comes out can be tied to a specific individual, much like how fingerprints are. This makes it perfect for authentication, and it doesn't require the user to remember anything or make a specific physical gesture. The researchers, which hail from Germany's University of Stuttgart, Saarland University, and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, say that in testing the SkullConduct system was able to correctly identify the right person with a 97% success rate. While this is still in the research stage, a few limitations that have been discovered include large amounts of background noise preventing the audio from being picked up, as well as a user's weight gain changing the audio pattern as it plays through the skull over time. source
  13. Japanese electronics giant NEC has developed a new biometric method that allows users to login with the shape of their ear. According to NEC the method has a greater than 99% accuracy. The new technology takes less than a second to measure acoustic characteristics determined by the shape of the ear which are unique for each person. To measure these characteristics, the method uses an earphone with a built-in microphone. This collects earphone-generated sounds as they resonate within ear cavities. NEC states the biggest benefits of the technology is that it can continuously authenticate an user because it does not require particular actions such as scanning a part of the body over an authentication device. Simply wearing an earphone with built-in microphone is sufficient. The company plans to commercialize the technology in a wide range of applications, including the prevention of identity fraud in operations related to safety and security, such as in maintenance, management, and security of critical infrastructure, in ensuring confidentiality of wireless communications and telephone calls, and in voice guidance services designed for particular individuals or particular scenarios. It should become available somewhere next year. Article source
  14. Privacy advocates warn feds about surreptitious cross-device tracking 1939, back when ads used to be safe. Privacy advocates are warning federal authorities of a new threat that uses inaudible, high-frequency sounds to surreptitiously track a person's online behavior across a range of devices, including phones, TVs, tablets, and computers. The ultrasonic pitches are embedded into TV commercials or are played when a user encounters an ad displayed in a computer browser. While the sound can't be heard by the human ear, nearby tablets and smartphones can detect it. When they do, browser cookies can now pair a single user to multiple devices and keep track of what TV commercials the person sees, how long the person watches the ads, and whether the person acts on the ads by doing a Web search or buying a product. Cross-device tracking raises important privacy concerns, the Center for Democracy and Technology wrote in recently filed comments to the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC has scheduled a workshop on Monday to discuss the technology. Often, people use as many as five connected devices throughout a given day—a phone, computer, tablet, wearable health device, and an RFID-enabled access fob. Until now, there hasn't been an easy way to track activity on one and tie it to another. "As a person goes about her business, her activity on each device generates different data streams about her preferences and behavior that are siloed in these devices and services that mediate them," CDT officials wrote. "Cross-device tracking allows marketers to combine these streams by linking them to the same individual, enhancing the granularity of what they know about that person." The officials said that companies with names including SilverPush, Drawbridge, and Flurry are working on ways to pair a given user to specific devices. Adobe is developing similar technologies. Without a doubt, the most concerning of the companies the CDT mentioned is San Francisco-based SilverPush. CDT officials wrote: SilverPush's ultrasonic cross-device tracking was publicly reported as long ago as July 2014. More recently, the company received a new round of publicity when it obtained $1.25 million in venture capital. The CDT letter appears to be the first time the privacy-invading potential of the company's product has been discussed in detail. SilverPush officials didn't respond to e-mail seeking comment for this article. Cross-device tracking already in use The CDT letter went on to cite articles reporting that cross-device tracking has been put to use by more than a dozen marketing companies. The technology, which is typically not disclosed and can't be opted out of, makes it possible for marketers to assemble a shockingly detailed snapshot of the person being tracked. "For example, a company could see that a user searched for sexually transmitted disease (STD) symptoms on her personal computer, looked up directions to a Planned Parenthood on her phone, visits a pharmacy, then returned to her apartment," the letter stated. "While previously the various components of this journey would be scattered among several services, cross-device tracking allows companies to infer that the user received treatment for an STD. The combination of information across devices not only creates serious privacy concerns, but also allows for companies to make incorrect and possibly harmful assumptions about individuals." Use of ultrasonic sounds to track users has some resemblance to badBIOS, a piece of malware that a security researcher said used inaudible sounds to bridge air-gapped computers. No one has ever proven badBIOS exists, but the use of the high-frequency sounds to track users underscores the viability of the concept. Now that SilverPush and others are using the technology, it's probably inevitable that it will remain in use in some form. But right now, there are no easy ways for average people to know if they're being tracked by it and to opt out if they object. Federal officials should strongly consider changing that. News source

  16. This appears to be one of the common issues in Windows 10 One of the problems that users are experiencing with Windows 10 affects the audio card of PCs running the operating system, with a significant number of upgraders complaining that there's no sound after deploying it or after installing updates. We've experienced pretty much the same problem here at Softpedia, as sound stopped working on a couple of Windows 10 PCs after installing the cumulative updates that Microsoft released in the last couple of months. Every time, we managed to fix the issue by rolling back drivers, so it seems that it's all caused by the audio software that Microsoft uses for your card. Every time a new OS update is installed, drivers are updated too, so you get the same version that the company delivered in the first place. How to fix the problems In a post on Microsoft Community, a company support engineer linked to an easy to use workaround that might come in very handy to those who are struggling to fix audio issues in Windows 10. The workaround, which you can find in the box after the jump, involves uninstalling the audio card from your PC and removing the generic drivers. After rebooting the system, Windows 10 should attempt to reinstall the drivers and look for a new version online. Additionally, you can also check the audio card manufacturer website and download the latest drivers for your hardware. Then, you can point Windows 10 to the updated software and thus make sure that no generic drivers are being used (you should check twice that your manufacturer already optimized its files for the new OS). If that doesn't work, you might want to contact Microsoft support and let them do the hard work for you. But in most of the cases, removing the sound card and reinstalling it should do the trick.

  18. Here's my scenario: I have a laptop with 3 OS on it. Windows XP, Windows 8, Windows 7, and 4th partition for files. Whenever I listen to music or watch and listen to Youtube videos, and the like, I notice that the sound is louder when I play it on Windows XP than on Windows 7/8. I have played the same set of music files, Youtube videos on all 3 OS but the result is still the same. The volume on the 3 OS and on the videos are all set to 100% but still, when I play them on Windows XP, I had to lower down the volume not to cause too much noise. I have installed the required audio drivers for all 3 OS and all OS are Windows updates up-to-date. Whenever I watch and listen on Windows 7/8, I often look at the volume indicator to see if it is already maxed [or 100%] and is thinking if there is any way to make the sound/audio louder. All OS are on their own partition so the settings and software are independent from one another. Just to compare, 100% volume on Windows 7/8 seems to be around 50% on Windows XP even though they are using the same exact hardware, all OS on the same laptop. When I'm on Windows 7/8, I will need to connect additional speakers to get a louder sound/audio but when I'm on Windows XP, the built-in speakers are sufficient enough. Is there any setting that I need to check or adjust so that sound/audio volume on Windows 7/8 will be at par or as loud as on Windows XP? I'm not sure if my computer specs matter but I'll just mention it anyway. Windows XP on 1st partition [148 GB] Windows 8 on 2nd partition [150 GB] Windows 7 on 3rd partition [150 GB] 4th partition for files [250 GB] or 750 Gibibytes / 698 Gigabytes 4 GB RAM DDR3 Intel Core i7 3610QM CLEVO CO.
