Audio mixer "raise maximum volume" button not working

The raise maximum volume button does nothing for me, except if i go into configure audio devices and raise them there. Then it shows up as being able to raise above 100%.

Is this a bug, or something misconfigured?

Increase from device option first then do here

Using this option can be risky. While it is convenient to use because of some files low volume levels, using this option has been known to damage speakers in the past. Using this option can result in high levels of distortion that could blow out speakers if turned up too high.

You may choose to disregard this warning, but you may regret it if an expensive set of speakers are attached to your system. Just FYI.

Nope, that’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
The raise maximum volume button only affects the devices, not the applications. Applications can normally only be set to 100%. The button is simply displayed on both tabs, but only applies to the devices.

I see. Thanks for the explanation

I had an application that for some unknown reason was running at 80% volume. Wanted to boost that application specifically.
