Hi the original problem  was brought into focus by googletalkplugin auto adjusting the input levels with no way to stop it.
however i have just found (googled) that way.


To turn off the auto adjust:

cd ~/.config/google-googletalkplugin    # get to google chat's directory
cp -p options options.bak        # make a backup before changing stuff !
gedit options                # edit the config file

now change one of the lines so that it reads as follows:


Now restart you machine and google chat will now longer auto-adjust!!!

Remember to go to PulseAudio volume control just to make sure the left channel stays at 0

That hopefully is enough to keep the average user happy for now
