The Sound effects are very quiet

the SFX volume slider are at 100% and i can barely hear them (Open SFX 0.2.3) playing arund with the slider dont help

on the other hand the music are relatively loud if i move the music slider the SFX also getting louder(if moved to +) and quieter (if moved to -)

the only solution so far are setting music to 100% and pressing the Stop butten and play all the midis with winamp or another external player

I use Windows7
This task depends upon

Same problem here (Windows7Pro, 64-Bit, SP1).
To narrow it down a little:
If you look at the sound mixer from windows, the slider for OpenTTD adjusts exactly like the music slider ingame. The sound effect slider ingame has no effect on the windows setting. So if you want to lower the music it lowers the sound completely and therefore the sound effects too.

I hope I have explained clearly enough, because english is not my first language.
