When using Spotify or Discord with PulseEffects, the audio has noticeable crackling when eg. an application changes volume or plays a notification sound. This is worked around in Pulseaudio 13. PulseEffects already knows how to use the workaround, but as Solus is on 12.2, this needs to be applied https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/-/merge_requests/93 and also Pulseaudio should introduce itself as something else than 12.2 (PulseEffects detects either 13 or a - character to use the workaround).
Please, we don't need this re-opened. There's nothing we can do about this and it's clearly an upstream issue that is already resolved upstream, at the cost of other more serious issues.
There is. Explained right in the first post. However, I can just build 13.0 myself like I've done so far. I just wished this could've been worked around which would benefit other people who use PulseEffects.
