Dear Zwift Community,
I did a couple of searches but haven’t found anything like this. It seems that with the last few updates, game sounds are played out a lot quieter than before, specially Ride on Sounds.
It was really loud as I started Zwifting in the middle of last year, especially during group rides. Now it just seems that the sound is less loud and often is also cut during playback as the next sound starts to play. It’s quite annoying and most noticable in group rides with lot of game sounds like given Ride-On’s or yelling “Ride On” or “I’m toast” from the riders. When I’m doing workouts and riding through the workout arch indicating the next workout step, normally you’d hear a countdown from the last 3 seconds downwards, followd by a sound when you ride through. I only can hear it sometimes, but most of the times it’s either to quiet or you even hear nothing at all.
If I change the Game Sound Volume Slider from max to the middle, I can barely hear the game sounds at all. The other Volume slider (I think it was environment) is to the max as well.
I didn’t change any drivers or made updates besides Zwift and regular Windows Updates. I’d appreciate any kind of help.
Kind regards and HNY,
