Windows Volume Control

Hello, I have a problem with the volume control. Audirvana does not allow you to control the volume from the Windows system menu. The control can be performed only by the Audirvana.
I want to be able to control from the main menu of Windows .

Audirvana 3.5.45

Тhank you in advance!

Yep, that’s how it works. It uses a custom algorithm which is supposed to be lossless.

Yep. This is not a bug. Audirvana overrules the Window sound engine and takes exclusive posession of the sound card. That is the way it is supposed to work. If Audirvana did not do that the sound quality would suffer.
That is how any bit perfect audo player works in Windows. In some cases you are allowed to not lock the soundcard, but then you lose all the advantages of bit perfect sound. I see you are using JPLAY as a driver, so I assume you prefer bitperfect sound, because that is what JPLAY is all about. The volume control (ie soundmixer) in Windows is inferior hence good music player apps (like Audirvana) bypass it.

But what is the problem controlling the volume from Audirvana instead of Windows? The media keys (including volume) on your keyboard still work in Audirvana (if I am not mistaken).
