Audio messed up

After installing WSJT-X 1.1 all my audio of my ham software (such as WSPR, JT65A, Fldigi, RCKskimmer, CWskimmer etc) settings were messed up. With the new version of WSJT-X 1.1 itself the audio was too strong and it was necessary to bring down the audio slider almost to zero. Finally I replaced the old version of WSJT-X vs 1.0 r3323 and everything is back to normal, after reset the audio settings of my ham software.

Conditions are poor again. On 40 meter almost nothing to hear. On 20 m I did hear 4 ssb stations over the entire band. I managed to work S573DX with 5 watts SSB on 20 meter.

    same here, but sticking with 1.1 as I had had problems with the audio level slider in the sound dialogues not reducing the audio and the output overloading the rigs. Seemed to cure itself overnight after weeks of frustration, so leaving well alone here. DM780 has a volume control on the soundcard so can control output through that device, don’t use other s/w so can’t comment on those. Would be an idea for Joe to introduce (re-introduce?) a volume control in his software so that optimum levels for all other devices using the same soundcard could be achieved.
