NAME
       default.pa - PulseAudio Sound Server Startup Script

SYNOPSIS
       ~/.config/pulse/default.pa

       /etc/pulse/default.pa

       /etc/pulse/system.pa

DESCRIPTION
       The  PulseAudio  sound  server  interprets  a  configuration  script on
       startup, which is mainly used to define the set  of  modules  to  load.
       When    PulseAudio    runs   in   the   per-user   mode   and   ~/.con-
       fig/pulse/default.pa exists, that file is used. When PulseAudio runs in
       the per-user mode and that file doesn't exist, /etc/pulse/default.pa is
       used. When PulseAudio runs as a system service, /etc/pulse/system.pa is
       used.

       The script should contain directives in the PulseAudio CLI language, as
       documented in pulse-cli-syntax(5).
