Smooth Start: When settings are loaded from disk, or a sound is added for the first time or cleared the volume is automatically reduced smoothly to zero the audio file is loaded / cleared and the volume is smoothly brought back to it's previous level. This ensures that there are no jarring or abrupt changes in volume that may startle.
Smooth Start can be disabled via Options
