It does. I have it set to 100% (0dB). When I start Amarok and change
the volume there, Amarok's volume control changes my sound card volume
to the same percentage.
Oh, and vice versa too! If I change the "Master" volume in KMix or
alsamixer, Amarok's volume control changes too! They're really linked.
And nobody, really really nobody can convince me that this is the
right thing to do. Because if it is, you can actually drop the volume
control from Amarok completely; it's just the same as altering "Master"
