SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

This program adjusts the settings of an audio mixing device. It can be used from the command line, in scripts, or interactively with the keyboard or mouse.

For each channel, q queries, + and - increment and decrement by one, or an amount if one is specified. If no + or - is given after the channel option, a number sets a specific level (monophonically).  

OTHER OPTIONS

-C color_scheme_file
specify the name of a file containing a color scheme. This implies -I
-d device_file
specify the name of the mixer device (default is /dev/mixer
-f rc_file
specify file for saving and loading settings
-h
display information on usage
-I
run interactively, using the full-screen ncurses-based interface. This is the default if no options are given, but must be specified in order to have go into interactive mode after doing things non-interactively.
-L
load settings from $HOME/.aumixrc or /etc/aumixrc if the former is inaccessible
-q
query all devices and print their settings
-S
save settings to $HOME/.aumixrc

 

EXAMPLES

The command
aumix -q -v75 -m 0 -c R -c+10 -m q

prints all settings, sets volume to 75%, sets microphone to 0, sets CD to record, increases the CD level by ten (both left and right), and prints the new settings for the microphone.

The .aumixrc file containing:

vol:60:60
wait:5000
vol:50:50

sets the volume to 60%, waits five seconds, then reduces the volume to 50%. Note that "wait" lines will not be saved by aumix. They must be added by hand.
