Please quote the actual version number to avoid confusion. As I understand 
it 'latest milestone' is currently 4.1. It also helps to know whether you 
have gta01 or gta02 as the mixer channel numbers are apparently different.

That's odd - setting it to 1 should give almost no output, at least on a 
gta02. Mine is at 96 and maxmum is 127.

From what? Mine is at 7 (maximum)

That's very strange. It seems as though you are editing the correct controls, 
and the differences should be obvious given the large level changes you seem 
to be making. I can't test it myself until I've resoldered my headset, but 
I've not had any problems with it in the past when changing audio settings. i 
haven't checked to see that FSO does actually use the gsmheadset.state when 
the headset is plugged in. I assume you are editing the file, saving the 
changes then starting a new phone call to test the settings.
