Audigy 4 Volume steps issue (16.04 / 18.04)

I’ve recently been bitten by the “Volume range anomalies” issue with my Audigy 4 Pro card under both 16.04 and 18.04, more specifically in my case the volume steps jumping from the first step straight to the 20th, losing all low volume granularity, as easily seen in ‘alsamixer’.

I’ve found the solution there: https://askubuntu.com/questions/15069/how-do-i-change-the-way-ubuntu-adjusts-my-volume-mixer-levels

Adding ‘ignore_dB=1’ after the line ‘load-module module-udev-detect’ in ‘/etc/pulse/default.pa’, did the trick.
