i looked at openal for my game today and its so much simpler then dxsound. however i have 1 problem, ive put the gain from the source and the listener to 2.0 and its still quiet.

but with the same sound in windows media player its really noisy. (also this is compared with the sound right next to the listener).

any ideas how to fix it?

what fileformat is your sound in?
It should be uncompressed wav file.
Also 1.0 is considered default gain. Below 1.0 the sound will be softer and above will be louder. Do not stretch it to far 2.0 should be twice as load as 1.0. Also sounds louder then 2.0 might not play. Maybe you can try 1.5 as sound volume?

its uncompressed wav yes. i know that 2 is double the loudness etc. but 2 compared to win media player, itunes or dx sound is near silent!
