if Flat volumes are enabled on a per-sink basis and *PulseAudio* provides *
per*-*application volume* controls only .

Neither pulse client nor alsa-pulse client can connect to PA server more
than once.
This mean that winepulse.drv have to perform mixing of 16 voices of dsound,

especially winepulse.drv did not provide midi or softsynth and still relies
on wine-alsa to provide the midi support.

all those advantages of winepulse.drv (such as cross platform , software
mixing ) are meaningless
