Re: software mixer - mpd or alsa?

OK, thank you. If I understand that code correctly, looks like you map what I'll call "human readable volume", in the range 0 to 100%, to "computer volume": 0 to 1024. Looks like it's done in such a way that the jumps are smaller at the lower end too. So no easy/obvious fix for my purposes. I notice...
