It does not happen at all with my current patch, but can be
added - see my reply to [IDC]Dragon.

I don't follow forum discussions very closely closely, they are
scattered too much among questions etc for my taste.

As far as I gathered from various places, the main complaint was
not that we don't scale back bass & treble, but that we *do*
scale back volume (in order to prevent clipping) and that this
behaviour limits volume too much.

My patch removes clipping prevention altogether (like we had it
on Archos Recorders & Ondios for years, btw).
