Hello everyone, I would like to clarify why my editing in the article on sound is constantly canceled?
Here is the evidence on the pictures below about the difference in sound on the spectrograms.
As you can probably notice, that on Windows 10 samples are more identical to the original, rather than on Windows 7.
Used materials in this tests
Windows 10 on Realtek
Windows 10 on Creative G1
Windows 7 on Realtek
Windows 7 on Creative G1
The peculiarity of this behavior in terms of sound in Windows 7 was caused by the introduction of DRM at the development stage of Windows Vista, which is also easily confirmed by reading the development literature.
To carry out this test, recording through the line input via the built-in sound card with the help of Audacity was used and then the results were transferred to the schedule through the Spek.
The conditions were the same (Volume 80% output and input) and the same player Foobar2000 on default settings (no asio/openal and ks with wasapi exclusive for output) was used.
For very talented people, I note that the sound system has remained the same since Windows Vista, but has been significantly reworked: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/windows-10-has-better-sound-quality-than-windows-7-on-my-computer-not-necessarily-yours.789224/
Especially it is important for the old and not-so games that use DirectSound.
And for those who like to listen to music, and especially in a high quality, because windose 10 does not force you to use all sorts of workarounds crutches mentioned above.
Since I'm using Windows 10 I am not able to run one of my old games that is SafeDisc protected DRM. I was thinking that I maybe could make a virtual copy of the game and then be able to run the game. At first I was thinking using Alcohol 120 but I read that someone got a virus from downloading it so I'm not sure about downloading it. I was then thinking of daemon tools which seems safer. Does any of you have any experince with copying a SafeDisc game? Or know how to run SafeDisc game on Windows 10?
Thank you in advance!
