I was just listening to music on iTunes when the volume level suddenly dropped by like 50%, to the point where I could barely hear the music playing. I tried restarting but it didn't get louder again. I might've hit the N key when it happened, but I don't know if that's what caused it since I had been playing Guild Wars.
Does anyone know why this might have happened or how I can fix it?

Actually it seems like everything got a bit quieter. This is strange.

Yeah everything is at the normal levels in there, or at least where it's always been. It used to be I'd have itunes at like 1/4 volume and Windows at like 40 and it was fine, now it's at full/60 for the same effect.

click on all those volume sliders... sometimes when im playing music and join a skype call and leave the music will still be playing at like 40% volume. I just click on the spotify slider and its normal. --- http://i.imgur.com/M91w3qt.jpg My new hat.
theres also another setting along the lines of "allow applications to take direct control of this device" --- http://puu.sh/7Eoww/e5f7bf2a73.png http://puu.sh/7EoG7/ff5a108d5c.png

Did you plug anything into a USB port? --- 15.4" Retina MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) | Node 304 mITX | Gigabyte Z87N-WIFI | Intel Core i5-4670K | Asus GTX 760 | Corsair 1x8GB | EVGA 600W | 120+64GB SSDs

what about this?
This is what solved the same problem I had. Laptop had a built-in mic and apparently either typing or the music playing would trigger it and the sound would drop dramatically and not come back. Easy fix, and hopefully works for you too. --- Crimson night & Celsion moon, misfiction, not save the Player is Prayer, yes, Dance Romanesque and unfinished Romancia.
