Angry XMMS sounds like crap

OK ive noticed that the little slide bar on XMMS (which controls volume) acts just like the equilizer, therefore making the sound sound HORRIBLE if turned to 100%. Anyone know a way to make it sound like WINAMP where you can keep at 100% therefore having loudness without the horrible too much ampherage sound? Hell Linkn Park sounds worse now with XMMS.

I think you might have the wrong output plugin (look into preferences for that). Also, how loud did it go in windows. As the limitations might be your sound system. That is too loud means more distortion.

I've had this problem as well. I believe it's just an issue with OSS/drivers. Sound in Linux is a bit sucky at present, I just set it to 80% and wind up the volume on the speakers.

ALSA should sort this all out, but it's not quite here yet.
