If you are using an international version of windows, you may get distortion or large boost in volume when you click on pyro's volume bar. the same distortion may occur when using certain plugins.In many non-english locales a comma is used to separate decimal digit instead of a period. in other words, a machine running on a German or french version of windows would expect a "," as a decimal separator character.  

Here we are workarounds.

[1] Run the windows control panel, and go to the "Regional and language Options" panel. Under the "Standards and formats" setting, choose "English (United States)". This will cause numbers to formatted and  scanned in the way these plugins expect,but will also cause times and dates to formatted for US English, which may not be desirable. So you might want to try [2] instead

[2] Again bring up the "Regional and Language Options" panel, but click on the [Customize.] button, and make the following changes:

Decimal symbol:
Digit grouping symbol:
List separator:
