[PD] fader gain

I've been using the following to control the output volume of a channel 
from my MIDI faders:

[ctlin 7 1]   (in from faderbox)
[* 0.787402]   (scale 0-127 to 0-100)
[pack 0 50]
[*~]   (multiplied by sound from channel)

I know that this is the "mathematically" correct way to do decibels to 
RMS, but it doesn't sound right. The bottom 2/3rds of the slider are 
almost silent, then the sound comes in very loud at the top. What other 
kind of setup are people using to control gain?
