Measure computers volume in decibels

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I was wondering if there is software or drivers of some sort out there, proprietary or freeware, that can estimate the volume of the sound coming out of your computer.

For me, I'm using a turtle beach 5.1 Ear Force HPX and specifically want something that can measure the decibels of each speaker within the headset. More or less it's curiosity but I think it would be interesting to play with.

No, every speaker/headphone have different specifications, which determines the SPL(loudness) of the actual sound. The audio signal is not sound; it's only a electrical signal, you can't measure the decibel of that.

No. Sound level is determined by amplifier/speaker combination not signal level out of a sound card. If you want to know your sound level go to radio shack and get dB meter.

Yah I might end up doing that. Only it won't tell me how much each individual speaker is putting out.

This. There are other ways you usually can turn off other speakers but this is the easiest.
