He, then you don't want the flat vol logic. But really, *why* do you want this? Why do you want your highest stream volume considerably lower than the device volume? That 20% headroom is simply something you lose then. Your sound card has a 16 bit DAC. But that way you use it as 15 bit dac only. > Serious. There was only one way to scale volume values to me.

You know, this sounds more like a problem of "didn't use to be like this, must be bad" than serious cricism.
