Perhaps I'm missing something but I think the explanation is simpler: on
Windows, Rev sets the WAV volume, not the master volume of the system.  On
our XP system, setting the playLoudness only changes the WAV slider in the
volume control panel (you may need to close and reopen the panel to see the
slider update).  The levels for other sound sources such as MIDI remain
