Sound problem

Alright, I didn't want to put this as bugs or anything because I believe it's me, not WG (for a change, right?)

 

Anyways, I've just updated my Windows 10 and after everything was set-up I fired up the game to play few battles before going to sleep.

 

The sounds are.... terribly balanced. When I started the game I've noticed the music at the beginning was significantly lower than usual even tho I didn't touch the volume during the Windows update or after that.

 

I cranked up the volume and then the music was fine. The match started and as soon as I fired the first time my ear canals suffered (maybe irreversible) damage. It was so loud I almost jumped out of the chair. I played with no volume the whole match because i didn't have time to adjust during battle.

 

Then I switched to co-op where I can set the volumes of each thing correctly but it's so messy I'm not able to do so no matter how hard I try.

 

Can someone who understands the setting (and maybe speaks English more fluently than me) explain each section of the 'Audio' on the settings?

 

I mean "Music in the port" is self-explanatory but what about "Engine sounds" for example? Is that slider really only for the ship's engines and nothing else? Sounds odd to have a complete slider for that.

 

I've also heard many ppl in the forums mentioning "ultra" settings when talking about audio. I don't see such setting anyways. I have "low" and "high" under 'Sound Quality'.

 

Finally, I'm just trying to fix the problem and looking for some assistance here. Not complaining, not blaming anyone, just calmly asking for advice. 

 

P.S. Before the update all sliders were to the maximum and everything was balanced. I would just change my overall system volume and control it that way.

 

Right now, when I set all sliders to maximum, I can barely hear the music, I can barely hear anything other than the shells which make an abnormally loud sound as well as the voice inputs from the guy which is yelling at me now all the time.

 

I will try to play with the sliders again but thought of dropping a thread a maybe get some suggestions which might help me fix the problem. 

 

I also find it weird that the Windows update changed the specific sounds on a game but well... I see no other explanation unless WG did something just now but I guess someone else would complain by now...

 

Thanks.

I did find the "gunfire volume" but one slider isn't gonna fix the issue.

 

I have no idea how this happened and it won't be easy to fix it with sliders, that's for sure because I'm not sure if there is a slider for each volume in WOWs.

 

For example, if the music is playing fine in the background before starting the match, when I press on the "Battle" button it goes straight into my brain ripping my ears off. Where is a damn slider for that!?

 

Obviously for the shells the "gunfire volume" controls it. But what about the 'reload' sound? Because now that I lowered the "gunfire volume" the 'reload' sound seems to be even lower and I can barely hear it.

A windows 10 update may have changed the sound driver or found a more up to date version, this could be the reason for the changes.

 

 

Here is my settings under audio:

The ultra will only be available if you have downloaded the ultra version of the game client not the standard one....
