run pulseaudio server with 'flat-volumes=no'
I listen to music while writing... and every single time I change songs a
hilariously loud POP is almost killing my ears. This is annoying and painful.
What's also annoying is that with 'flat-volumes = yes' the master volume is
changed to the loudest individual stream. If a rogue application should choose
to up the volume, my ears get fried (headphones !)
Personally I think the purpose of having a master volume slider is to limit the
max volume to avoid this kind of crap, which is totally nullified by
'flat-volumes = yes' !
Proposal: use 'flat-volumes = no' as the default in '/etc/pulse/daemon.conf'. I
think the user is clever enough to handle the volume sliders himself. And only
because Vista or W7 fiddles with the master volume in this _sick_ way, we don't
need that as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. play a song
2. increase the volume for the app. using pavucontrol or with the app. itself
3. master volume is pushed up as well
The user should be the _only_ one messing with MASTER VOLUME.
With 'flat-volumes=yes' it is possible to get permanent hearing damage if unexpected volume surges are forced into the user's ears! Again with this feature enabled _any_ application that uses pulseaudio can set the master volume to 100%. That might be tolerable with a stereo system with a manual volume knob, but on a laptop + headphones this is close to a criminal assault.
