Annoying loud sounds with normal soundcard and headset

Online private

Could it be that the game sound is optimized for surround systems?
The battle drums (which happen very often as the aggro range is very high) are way too loud in relation to other sounds. Also the drums at the summoming place. The system sounds like level up. If I turn the slider down for SFX sound the normal surrounding sounds are too silent. Also the sounds in the big houses of like the cimmerian village are strange and somehow “wrong”. Also the special effects like in isle of Siptah the storm is far too loud. Most annoying are the battle music drums as they very often sound and they are really far too loud in relation. Would there be a chance to get a slider for special effects sound, changing loudness? Or is there some chance to do something else?

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. I have a normal realtek onboard soundcard and use headphones

I think the sound needs normalization. That would make sure that the kappa hatchlings aren’t louder than their parents even when the parent is closer. There are many of these instances, and that’ll be some work to normalize them all.

I have turned on the virtual surround sound function of my soundcard driver and now the sounds are ok.
So I have found my workaround. Thanks for the answer.
