I would not even know any more that there is a "sound&multimedia" item 
in the kcontrol TOC. I'd have used the "search" tab.

Since about a year, I am using kcontrol --> search, and nothing else if 
I need to find anything. Works very fast.

So in your case, I had typed "bit" (not knowing if it is spelt "bit 
rate" or "bitrate") -- and bingo!

The search feature in kcontrol is the only thing that makes it still
usable. [ Hmmm... so in line with one school of opinion that is 
currently popular on IRC, in blogs and on mailing lists, we should
possibly abolish the search -- so it makes migration to a new 
tool as kcontrol successor hapen more quickly?  ;-P ]
