I recently purchased a driverless usb audio card (Turtle Beach Advantage Micro II). It outputs audio in great quality, but also in a volume that high that I need to set the system volume on its lowest level and use my audio player volume controls.

Is there anyway to get finer control on the native system volume?

EDIT: I found this question similar to mine. One of the answers provide a way of setting higher volume granularity.

EDIT 2: Tried it but couldn't achieve any higher granularity.

Why dont you just lower the volume on your audio card? – soandos Jul 24 '11 at 13:46
It doesn't have any volume control, it's a simple sound card, merely meant to output audio in higher quality than most on-board drivers. – akurtser Jul 25 '11 at 6:40
In Windows Volume Mixer's volmue bar, there are 100 steps, a volume bar with 1,000 steps could solve this problem. – akurtser Jul 25 '11 at 8:44

While this card is sold as driverless audio card, optional drivers from Turtle Beach normalize its volume to a normal level.
