LowRes NX Being Way Too Loud.

Hey, it's me, again! I've been starting to work on a lot of stuff in PICO-8 recently as apposed to LowRes NX. The only reason why I keep coming back to LowRes NX is because it's way easier for me to understand, as well as the awesome community that surrounds it. Although there is one reoccurring issue that comes with, and I'm pretty sure it might have been posted on here before but I'll say it again. LowRes NX is way too loud, just loading in the program on desktop at only 2% volume is really hard on my ears, and I can't go any quieter at all, otherwise it's completely nothing. Could there be a permanent fix for this? I was just wondering, thank you!

Hm, I just opened a PICO-8 game on the browser and compared it directly with LowRes NX, both playing music. I think PICO-8 even sounded a bit louder.
Do you mean sound in general or maybe only the NX start sound?

Ok, it depends on the music/sounds. NX doesn't filter high frequencies, so some sounds are quite harsh, PICO-8 in general sounds more "muffled".
I'll try to add a filter or maybe just lower the volume a bit, not sure yet.

Uhhhhh.....make an adjutable filter πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜.

I already tried a filter with different settings, but it's not really what I want neither. I think I'll add a filter for very high noises (mostly unwanted frequencies), but almost unnoticeable. And a setting for the volume in the settings file.

I lowered the volume a bit in v0.13 (LowRes NX Coder 1.6).
