Subject: Re: logarithmic volume control
From: Eric Linenberg (
Date: 2002-08-07

This sounds like a great idea. Maybe it could be an option to tunr it on
or off. Also, maybe we could just have larger jumps (eg. 4% instead of
2%) The iriver firmware for the mp3CD players has this as an option.
Either the volume will go from 0-20 or 0-40.
