Hi,

I picked up a used Nektar Impact GX61 (basic full-size 61 key MIDI controller) and hooked it up to my computer. After some trial and error I was able to get various free programs to work to play sounds live on my (Windows 10) PC.

The problem that has me a bit stumped is that the volume of the sound being produced by the programs when I play the keyboard is abnormally low and there seems to be very little if anything I can do to rectify this.

regardless of how hard or fast I hit the keys on the keyboard, the sound only reaches about 25-30% of max possible volume, according to the meters on the Windows sound mixer. I can actually watch the meters on the Windows mixer where any regular youtube video will peak at close to 100%, but the keyboard stays waaay low.
