Painful loud distortion when opening sound settings in Gnome.
If audio is playing and I open the sound settings in Gnome control panel, occasionally the sound will turn to painfully loud distortion. I can just about hear the intended audio underneath. It always gives me a huge fright when it happens. I am using an up to date install of Arch Linux.
My version of gnome control panel is 3.32.2-1
uname - Linux rikka 5.1.7-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 4 15:47:45 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux
pulse version - pulseaudio 12.2
The device I'm using is: card 3: USB [AudioBox USB], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio] and output device in Gnome settings is Digital Output (S/SPDIF) - AudioBox
Steps to reproduce
- Use the desktop and play sound, like a video on YouTube
- In Gnome, go to the power menu at the top right, and click on the settings cog icon
- Click on Sound in the sidebar
What is the current bug behavior?
The audio sometimes becomes very distorted and loud, until audio is paused and started again.
What is the expected correct behavior?
Undistorted audio should continue to play.
