Yes. Those settings haven't changed. They are the same for 2.2 and the
latest builds.

Of course it will. The "bass boost" settings is the 2.2 version of the
MDB setting.

I repeat:

This means that 2.2 will ignore the "MDB xxxx" settings, and will only
understand the "bass boost" setting. For the later builds, it's the
other way around.
