5. Review the notice about turning off sound effects in other applications and touch OK.

6. In the Basic tab, you can use the genre you listen to most often as the basis for your settings. Touch the genre or another square on the grid that coordinates with the balance of Treble, Vocal, Bass, and Instrument you want.


7. To adjust the levels manually, touch Advanced. Touch and drag the sliders to create the balance you want. You can also touch 3D, Bass, and Clarity to enhance those features.


8. Touch Save to store your SoundAlive settings, or touch Reset to start over.
