  • This command sets the volume for the main PulseAudio "sink" (usually the ALSA output interface) to the maximum, 100% (the 0x10000 in the command). To set it to an arbitrary volume, replace 10000 with the volume you want times 100 (so 75% becomes 7500).

  • this will increase the volume by 2 decibels on the pcm channel. the argument to -c is for which sound card to use, the arg after set is the channel (PCM, Master, etc.) and what to set by. related commands: amixer -c 0 set PCM 2dB- decrease volume by 2 decibels amixer -c 0 set PCM toggle toggle mute/unmute this is for alsa systems for mac os (and maybe other UNIX systems) osascript -e 'set Volume *' where * is any number (can have decimal points) between 0 and 10

  • Works really well for playing DVDs, which have the volume turned way down for some reason. The `2' method is better IMHO because it will adjust to changing loud/soft parts. If you want to add it to your ~/.mplayer/config: # format: volnorm[=method:target] # method: # 1: use single sample (default) # 2: multiple samples # target: # default is 0.25 af-add=volnorm=2:0.75

  • Of course, a fifo is required for piloting the fade out of another song, but with a few bash function, we can mix music in bash like : crossfadeIn > mplayerfifo1 & crossfadeOut > mplayerfifo2 loop 0 10 > mplayer fifo1 etc etc

  • This normalizes volume in your mp3 library, but uses mp3gain's "album" mode. This applies a gain change to all files from each directory (which are presumed to be from the same album) - so their volume relative to one another is changed, while the average album volume is normalized. This is done because if one track from an album is quieter or louder than the others, it was probably meant to be that way.
