I have a question that bugs me.
Is there any difference between setting the mixer type as “disabled” and setting “software” volume control at 100%?
I suppose that the software mixer quality is affected mainly by rounding algorithm, bypassed when the control is disabled. But at 100% there won’t be any software adjustment, so the data will be sent to the output (DAC, digiamp, other) unalterated, like with “disabled” mixer type.
I’m probably missing something more complicated under the hood…
