    Volume Per Channel (VPC)

    Hello, can someone explain to me how to use the VPC feature of the operating system? I noticed it some time ago in the sound man page, but I didn't find any resources on how to actually use it for per application volume control.

If it's graphical i'd prefer GTK2 (or if it has to be 3) but i'll take what i can get. Also i'd like to use...
