             Bug #: 50056
           Summary: Feedback popping sound when volume sliders are moved
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: PulseAudio
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: pavucontrol
        AssignedTo: pulseaudio-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: rubin at starset.net

Debian Sid x64
Linux 3.2.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Apr 30 05:20:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
ThinkPad X220
pavucontrol 0.99.2-1
pulseaudio 1.1-3.2

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open pavucontrol
2. Move volume sliders back and forth on an attached sink with speakers hooked
3. Observe

Expected results:
Volume changes with no audible feedback.

Actual results:
Volume changes and a bubble/water popping sounds constantly plays.

The sound seems very intentional and almost mimicy of other particular
operating systems that have also implemented feedback during volume change. The
pop plays only when I adjust the volume of sinks, both local and networked,
from pavucontrol. It doesn't play if I adjust the audio in any other way, such
as through the media buttons above my keyboard, or any other volume control

After some searching and poking around I'm under the impression this item, if a
feature, is undocumented. Regardless, it would be great if pavucontrol had an
option to completely disable this feedback sound, that or the sound disappeared
all together.
