Hello, I wonder if someone can answer this for me.

 

On my Apple Iigs the start beep is nice and loud but when I launch games the music and sound effects are barely audible through the speaker. Is there a volume setting I am unaware of or is something else going on?

 

Thanks in advance.

Try plugging in headphones or speakers to the jack on the back to see if you experience the same.  This might help isolate a problem with the sound circuitry or the speaker.

The system beep is nice and loud. It's just that games that use the GS sound chip are super quiet. I am sending it off for a recap to see if that fixes the issue. Can't hurt!

The sound levels are adjustable in the control panel.

Yes and the system beep is nice and loud when you turn it up. Again it's the sound effects in games that are deathly quiet and almost inaudible. My Rom 1 GS does have this issue only the Rom 3 one.
