    Hi, I recently upgraded to media portal 1.6 which carried with it LAV Audio decoder 0.58.2. I went to listen to a track called Hounds of winter by Sting and got really bad pumping. Like a compressor with a release time of about 1s. Tried playing the track in windows media player and the effect is not present, no effects applied in the sound card manager. Tried with speakers and headphones same effect. Have unchecked Clipping protection in LAV audio configuration. (though mixing is not enabled). Have tried both dshow internal player and bass player in Mediaportal configuration. When the volume is reduced (master soundcard volume) the effect is still present.
    This sounds like a LAV issue to me... anyone got any suggestions ?

    Maybe the compression is enabled in MP,
    Config,music,music DSP then bass dsp/fx tab

    Though cant see why a setting would be evident in one track and not others, maybe something to do with replay gain info written into the track that is not being read by wmp
