wav files... some sound good, some are really AWFUL!
Well, I can't seem to make the Master Volume slider do anything but make a pretty light show, on the desktop and in alsamixer. No big deal, I have volume control elsewhere.
On a side note... some wav files (specifically the two that I tried anyway were listed as "mu-law logarithmic PCM (ffmpg)" in the properties section) sounded extremely over driven. Worse than granny's kitchen radio! And all my adjusting in alsamixer did nothing.
Now those wave files that were "Linear PCM" played with excellent sound.
My question is... what's the difference? Is it the codec being used? If so can can i change it?
Is ffmpg doing something adverse to the wav file?
