Max, having the Pianissimo control turned down only affects how *softly* the piano plays, not how loudly. Pianissimo should be turned up enough that quiet notes don't drop out.

The Fortissimo control is the one you need to adjust. Setting it between 12 and 1 o'clock is the normal volume level, so try turning it down to 11 o'clock or even 10 o'clock.

Do the above adjustment first. If it's still too loud, you can further attenuate the level by moving the volume slider leftwards in the Pianocorder Control Window of WINAMP. -32 is too extreme, but a setting in the -10 range wouldn't be too unreasonable.

All of these suggestions will of course reduce the dynamic range of the music.

Other ideas: 1) ensure the piano is sitting on a rug or carpeted surface. 2) stuff thick foam between the beams underneath the soundboard, staying at least 6" away from Pianocorder electronics and not touching the soundboard or any moving parts.
