The voice (All/Specific) section should be at the top, because it affects everything else (it's like a header or tab in a way).

Adding a header row allows to remove all the Range: labels. The parameter names no longer need to be in bold type, then.
The header needs to be cleanly aligned, so it must be in the same table and scroll area. So it can e scrolled out of view. I think that's accepatble, because a user needs to see it only once, since the role of each widget is quite clear from the placement.

Putting column spanning h-boxes into the table allows to have the Range spinners line up and the labels to be very long, while the value spinners and sliders are independently sized (value spinners must be fixed size to make them and all the sliders line up). See demo_3 in the attached Glade file. This technique could be used with seperate Range: labels like they're used now, of course.

I left the v scrollbars on "always", just to make the presence of the srolled windows obvious.
