Does anybody know how to increase the volume of the custom songs you put in?

Does anybody know how to increase the volume of the custom songs you put in? 

On the radio, I already have the volume on high. The sims 4 songs play loud but when it switches to my songs. Its very low and I can barely hear it.

Hello,

I moved your post to the right section. Try going under options under "Audio" and increase the object music slider.




Click on "apply changes" after that and see if you notice any improvement. Good luck!

I assume your songs are loud enough when played outside the game, in any media player? If so, then maybe it's a (volume) limitation that is hard-coded into the game...? You could play with audio editor programs and increase the volume of the .mp3 files themselves, but then again, the question is if it's really worth the effort.

I think Audacity (a freeware program) can achieve this as well.

Load an .mp3 file into the program, mark the entire "line" with the mouse and under Effect -> Amplify, raise the slider slightly (!) to the right. Not much, just slightly. There are other programs as well, but Audacity came to my mind first.

Thanks it worked a little bit but its still not as loud as the original songs but I take it. I amplified it as much as I could without distorting the sound.
