Sound plays at full volume for a second

So I have an event that's just "At start of layout, play (Song) at -18 dB" but for like half a second or so it plays at full volume and is very loud. Any way to combat that?

I found that personally when using advanced audio(determined by C2 detection) it's best to set any effects on an audio tag before playing the audio.

When using C2 audio plugin I found that audio volume in Web Audio is in fact an effect like any other, but this one is called GAIN. I found that some Effects need a moment to process before they are effectivly active.

My suggestion before any of your sounds ever play(say in splash screen). Go through all your tags and set all your start volumes(even if your aren't playing them and nothing is playing). that's the best solution i can give you for fighting this. And then I wish you best of luck :)

Is it the same across Chrome, Firefox and IE or is it specific to one of them?
