Audio bug MSI laptop - local files play at max volume

Hello.

I recently installed garuda linux last week and have been having a bug with the audio. Streamed media works fine, but for some reason local media (such as through mpv or vlc) is outputting at maximum volume despite the audio settings remaining at a lower volume level.

Post your terminal/konsole in- and output as text
