    Actually its not limited, what happened with VLC is that the sound were being amplified. So what your looking for might be a sound amplifying software. Is there any guys?

    suavecito is right, there's no delimiter. VLC is increasing the audio level digitally before the iMac audiocard amplify it for final output.

    let's say your iMac's audiocard amplifies sound 10 times, and you have an audio file which has a level of 5, then playing it straight will give you an output level of 50... (5x10 = 50)

    with VLC, it amplifies first the input, so if the VLC amplification is set to 4, then your final output when using VLC will be 400. (4x5x10 = 200).

    ofcourse that's only a quick and dirty way to explain it :D


    Any software media player that has a manual mode for equalizer settings can be used as sound amplifying software. iTunes has it. VLC, GOM, and Windows Media Player has it. In fact i can't think of any software media player that has no manual equalizer settings.

    here's a good read for iTunes Equalizer sliders.

    MASTER YOUR iTunes EQ


    the description of the individual sliders is applicable for all multiband equalizers.
