I noticed on my Pi today (with Hifiberry Digi+, SqueezeLite ) that the volume slider affects the volume mostly at the end of the volume scale. Most positions of the slider are quite silent and at the end it gets loud very fast.
I tested afterwards on my internal MacBook Pro speakers and had the impression it is the other way around. There is a small range where the volume increases quite fast and then a big range in the volume slider where there is just less increase of volume.
Are there differences in the volume levelling between different devices and is the volume level scale linear or logarithmic?
