is an interactive text-based sound-mixer control program that you can
use to set the volume of each supported mixer device of your
soundcard. It automagically detects all devices that are supported by
your sound hardware, and shows a list of scrollbars for each of these
You can use the up and down arrow keys (or k and j resp.) to
scroll though the list of scrollbars (some do not fit on the screen,
but you can reach them by simply scrolling down at the bottom of the
screen). The left and right arrow keys (or h and l resp.) change the
volume for the currently highlighted device, and (if you're lucky),
you can use home/end/PgUp/PgDn on the numerical keyboard to set left
and right volume independently. You can also use 0..5 to set the
volume to the position indicated by the numbers on top of the screen.
If a device can be recorded from, red brackets will be displayed under
the device's name. If it's selected as recording source, a red 'X' is
displayed as well. You can set a recording device with the space bar.
If nmixer is compiled with NAS (Network Audio System) support and it's
called as 'nasmixer', it will show the settings for the NAS mixer
.B -d device
Setst the mixer device to use (default = /dev/mixer)
.B -s mixdev=setting
Sets a specific mixer device to the volume specified by setting.
Immediately quit (after the command-line specified settings are set!). This
only makes sense if you use command-line options to set volumes. (currently,
the interface is drawn while setting the mixer, and removed afterwards, which
might be annoying, but it's in the way of being changed :)
