Think I discovered something

Hi Gene
Which live CD are you trying out, 11.10 or 12.04? I'm curious, since
I've seen this problem on the 11.10 disks (not tried 12.04 yet), but
it only happens on one of my systems. On my Desktop (I'll give specs
if that would help) this occurs, however on my laptop the volume
defaults to about 70% and I can hear the drums just fine. The Audio
chips are different (Realtek ALC662 on my desktop and a generic
hda-intel device on my laptop) however they both use the hda-intel
