NPR is too quite on my phone.

NPR audio feeds are oddly quiet on my HTC EVO 3D, while Pandora, YouTube and any other audio is plenty loud. Is there some odd internal setting I need to change? [more inside]

I can't hear you over how awesome XBMC is (I wish)

Background music and effects are way louder than voices in XBMC, so much so that I have to get up and turn the volume down every time theme song or music comes on during TV shows or movies for fear of disturbing neighbors (not to mention that they're uncomfortably loud). [more inside]

HOLY CRAP THAT'S LOUD

Is there any way to normalize the volume output on my PC so I'm not startled by clicking on a video link? The volume on YouTube and other sites varies so wildly from video to video that my modus operandi is to mute before I play the video, then slowly increase the volume, but I'm hoping there is a better way.

How to process music to a monotone?

How can I remove the component of pitch (or frequency) from an audio waveform, while maintaining the amplitude? I'm looking for a process analogous to desaturating a colour image to black and white: rendering an audio file literally monotonous but maintaining its rhythm (as changes in volume over time).

My MacBook's Internal Speakers Are Stuck on Mute

I can't get my Mac laptop's internal speakers to work -- they just stopped one day. When I press the volume adjust buttons, the little bars don't move, and the classic circle-with-bar-through-it appears. I've checked the volume in System Preferences, and the "mute" button is not selected by accident. [more inside]
