[SOLVED] Pulseaudio 13.99.2+11+g05f567086-1 issue with pavucontrol

After todays update of pulseadio i noticed that suddenly i have no sound.

I tried to reinstall pulseaudio to revert pulse config files in case something changed but to no evail. I noticed that in journalctl pulse logged that volume is too high and clipped the volume. I then reset the config files of pavucontrol and after restart i got my audio back. When i opened pavucontrol volume was at max and it showed values like 34324342343% volume. If i try to change them to lower values my audio gets muted again.

journalctl -xe

Oct 13 20:14:42 loki pulseaudio[587]: pa_sw_volume_divide: Volume exceeds maximum allowed value and will be clipped. Please check your volume settings.

My sound card is: Asus Xonar DX

[root@loki ~]# lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"
08:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio]
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Virtuoso 100 (Xonar DX)
    Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 24, IOMMU group 15
    I/O ports at d000 [size=256]
    Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2
    Kernel driver in use: snd_virtuoso

I reverted pulseaudio back to get my audio back to normal. With the below versions it works as usual.

-  18)  pulseaudio    13.99.2+7+g6101798c7   3  x86_64  (local)
-  18)  libpulse    13.99.2+7+g6101798c7   3  x86_64  (local)

I can confirm this issue. It's not just with pavucontrol but also with alsamixer and pulsemixer. Worked fine before upgrading.

My sound card: Asus Xonar DSX

Edit: Thought volume control didn't even work on 13.99.2+7+g6101798c7. Not sure in which version it stopped working, but it was working certainly at some point. I have been too lazy to look for fix and just have changed the volume from alsa.

I can confirm this issue as well, also with an ASUS Xonar DX sound card.

The issue was introduced with commit https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaud … f4947d5133.
I have filed a bug report for Pulse Audio here: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaud … ssues/1009

Marking the thread as solved - last pulse update fixed the issue.
