There can only be one instance of the global Volume per Server. You
can add more by hand using the Volume class, but I don't think you

by accident.

how do you know that there is only one volume? Does the Volume class
query the server?

The instance of Volume is set up with the Server, the user doesn't do it. So, if the synth is already running, it only sets a new value for the scaler. If the synth isn't running, it starts it.

moreover, the volume itself may not correspond to the slider position.

?? why not? Volume is a scaler on the output of all synths in the default group. It doesn't say 'there is -3 db of volume', it scale the output by -3db. Changing the volume in the lang changes the slider:

s.volume_(-3)

should the mute button also be unfocussable maybe?


I thought about it but I came to think it was useful to be able to
switch that on and off from the keyboard. For example in a
soundcheck.
You can hit the mute button on/off without having to stare at a
screen.

I couldn't really picture that this button would be focused often in
a performance.
(and in any case it's much less serious than turning off the server).

But if there are other good opinions for making it unfocusable
then I don't really care.

ok, this makes sense.

what about remote servers and multiple people using them? will the
volumes be added to each other?
