Feature request for hardware volume control option

Discuss client development (or even MPD development if you feel so inclined), ask questions about the client libs, MPD feature requests from client developers, etc...

Feature request for hardware volume control option

Post by EdS » July 15th, 2019, 12:43 pm

I can control the output level of my DAC using:

amixer -c 1 -D "hw:[device name]" set PCM [n% or ndB or mute or unmute]

Is it possible to implement something similar to allow client hardware volume control? I've seen the reference to Synchronator in another post but afaik alsa is not supported.

What does "alsa is not supported" mean? MPD can control any ALSA mixer, just like the "amixer" program. If amixer can control it, then it's "alsa supported".
