I have a system running fresh installed Ubuntu 14.04.1
When a music track starts to play, the volume is gradually increased. It takes about 2 seconds to hear anything and 3 seconds to reach full volume.
When playing short tracks this is really annoying.
Is it a pulse-audio setting? How can I make the volume increasement go faster?
Thanks for your response.
I tested the following applications:
youtube video in firefox browser
play song in Rythmbox
play sound in Anki
As far as I can see all (sound related) applications suffer from this.
