In software it should be set high enough everywhere so that the final digit=

d=20
so you don't get distortion from clipping. This is best controlled by the f=
inal=20
software-volume control directly before going to the soundcard. All the oth=
ers=20
should be at 100% (=3D no change in the volume aka volume-factor of 1).
If multiple apps / usages should have multiple volumes, then the loudest on=
e=20
should be at max and the others mixed accordingly.

But be aware that the volume fader some apps provide is not the volume of t=
hat=20
app but of master or pcm on the soundcard (if they picked the right channel=
=20
while trying to be smarter then the user).

Have fun,
