since EndeavourOS now installs Pipewire as default, i have a Problem.
This problem could be solved, if i remove Pipewire and reinstall pulseaudio again, but i think thats isnt the best way to do.
Im honest, im to old to understand why even Pipewire is needed. But i dont understanded already decades ago why pulseaudio is needed. Everything worked fine only with ALSA. But that did SysVinit too… It seems the Guys from Systemd/Pulseaudio/various_other_software likes to develop Software just of boredom
Nevermind, already with ALSA decades ago i set up a “virtual Soundcard” for volume normalization, because its annoys me that everything got another volume level on the internet. So i was everytime adjusting the volume if too loud/too quiet. Thats worked great.
Than pulseaudio became the standard. There i have done this the same.
But this time with some Plugins like i understand it.
For Pulseaudio it was enough, to install swh-plugins and configure pulseaudio accordingly:
.nofail .include /etc/pulse/default.pa load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_sink plugin=sc4_1882 label=sc4 control=1,1.5,401,-12,20,5,12 load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_normalized master=ladspa_sink plugin=fast_lookahead_limiter_1913 label=fastLookaheadLimiter control=10,-20,0.8 set-default-sink ladspa_normalized
And now i need the same, but with Pipewire I already found out that Pipewire is totaly able to do that. But i didnt understand how to do that.
(And no. Simply install pulseaudio again beside pipewire is not a solution, why is pipewire then even needed?! (thats the suggestion i found in the internet from other guys where one guy had the same question))
