Topic: how to increase sndio loudness?

i think default sndio is a bit mellow, at max volume 127 it fells like normal volume level in other mixer.
trying mpv 130% overvolume but it distort the audio quality. is there any way to increase sndio volume range nicely ?

thanks in advance.

yes but it only manages the already sndio volume range.

i mean when i play music in hyperbola it sound less louder than when my past experience with parabola (both played at default available max volume).

its not very critical issue, but i like hearing my dangdut music with a lot more volume tongue

anyway if other of you are dj like me i just discovered these mpv overrides (you might put them in mpv.conf)

volume-max=( value between 100-1000)
# very high gain, distort audio quality

af=lavfi=[acompressor=6]
# fair audio gain, keeps audio quality

its a bit sad, anyway thanks for your time throgh.

maybe better luck when hyperbsd out, i see some bsd folks mention bsd's mixerctl to boost sndio.

Boost alsa settings with alsamixer first.

Re: how to increase sndio loudness?

in my .mplayer/config
softvol=yes
softvol-max=2000
af=volume=20:1

in my .mpv/config
softvol=yes
softvol-max=500
volume-max=500
af=volume=2:1

In audacious:
Output  -> Audio settings -> Sndio Output
Amplify all files: 15 dB
