I love the game's music and sound design/effects. Guess I'll jump in and start a question on it! Even if it is more of a tech support query:
What can I do to avoid losing volume on specific sounds? I've had this happen in a number of circumstances, most notably in the PS step where you fight the Eye and then hold off the Risen while Trahearne does his ritual, and the "Fear Not This Night" instrumental starts playing while almost everything else goes silent. Fortunately it came out full volume my first time through but since then 9 times out of 10 the music is almost inaudible, without me changing any settings. Sometimes it's been that Win10 has decided to reduce my volume on the game as a whole but usually there is no detectable reason for the sudden quiet, which affects only specific sets of sounds in a game session.
I recall that it also occurred more recently in Gorrik's trial in Amnoon, where one NPC's lines (the magistrate?) were loud and clear and everyone else was a distant mumble even if I stood by them and faced them, again on subsequent playthroughs rather than my first time in.
What might the game be doing under the hood to selectively muffle sound?
