[rant] Fed up with PulseAudio
Does any one else here remove PulseAudio as soon as they install their distro?
I just absolutely hate it.
I like to up the levels of Bass and Treble to give my sound more Umph and clarity, ALSA alone lets me do this without degrading the playback quality. I just go to alsamixer and adjust away.
Throw in PulseAudio and it degrades sound quality to the ass levels of crap.
No way to easily adjust Bass/Treble for PulseAudio. You need to find a third party python script, adjust everything manually, copy the code it gives you into the gstreamer-properties. but since its pulseaudio, it doesn't really change anything for the better.
Is individual application volume control worth this?
I honestly feel PulseAudio is a cancer to linux. It's the worst thing to ever happen to all major distros.
Very first thing I do is remove that cancer. It does nothing but add to heartache and grief.
