asmixer - the AfterStep Mixer SYNOPSIS
asmixer [ -help ] [ -g geometry ] [ -d device ] [ -1 control ] [ -2 control ] [ -3 control ] [ -t title ] [ -v rate ] [ -w withdrawn ] DESCRIPTION
asmixer is a nice little application for controlling the volume of various sound outputs through three slider bars. It can be swallowed into Afterstep's Wharf for ease of use. OPTIONS
-h -help --help SOS, 911, etc. -g [+|-]x[+|-]y standard format for where you want to exile asmixer -d device the mixer device to harass -1 -2 -3 control this binds a slider to a specific sound device: VOLUME, BASS, TREBLE, SYNTH, PCM, SPEAKER, LINE, MIC, CD, IMIX, ALPTPCM, RECLEV, IGAIN, OGAIN, LINE1, LINE2, LINE3 -w WindowMaker withdrawn window support. -v volume the volume (1-100) to set the first slider to DEFAULTS
-d /dev/mixer -1 VOLUME -2 CD -3 PCM -t asmixer INVOCATION
asmixer can be called from one of many ways. The most common invocation is Afterstep's .steprc: *Wharf "mixer" nil Swallow "asmixer" asmixer -g -1-1 & This line will cause asmixer to be swallowed into Wharf, which 9 out of 10 dentists agree is cool. You will then be able to slide to your hearts content in perfect Wharf comfort! Another way to call asmixer is from the command line: [ximenes@leo]$ asmixer -d /dev/mixer -t asmixer -v 95 & This will pop up a little window with asmixer helplessly imprisoned inside. Don't worry, it likes it. SEE ALSO

mixerctl - audio mixer control command line application SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/mixerctl [-a | -d dev] [-iv] [-e | -o] DESCRIPTION
Some audio devices support the audio mixer functionality. See mixer(7I) for a complete description of the audio mixer. The mixerctl command is used to control the mode of the audio mixer and to get information about the audio mixer and the audio device. See audio(7I) for details. OPTIONS
The following options are supported. If none are specified, option -i is assumed: -a The command applies to all audio devices. -d dev The dev argument specifies an alternate audio control device for the command to use. -e Enables the audio mixer function if the audio device supports it. If supported, the audio mixer may be enabled at any time. The command silently ignores the enable option if the audio mixer is already enabled. -i Prints the audio device type information for the device and indicates whether the audio device uses the audio mixer. If the device does use the audio mixer, this option displays the audio mixer's mode. -o Turns off the audio mixer function if the audio device supports it. If supported, the audio mixer may be turned off if only one process has the device opened with the O_RDWR flag, or, if two different processes have the device opened, one with the O_RDONLY flag and the other with the O_WRONLY flag. (See open(2).) The command silently ignores the disable option if the audio mixer function is already disabled. -v Verbose mode. Prints the audio_info_t structure for the device, along with the device type information. This option implies the -i option. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
AUDIODEV If the -d and -a options are not specified, the AUDIODEV environment variable is consulted. If set, AUDIODEV will contain the full path name of the user's default audio device. The default audio device will be converted into a control device, and then used. If the AUDIODEV variable is not set, /dev/audioctl is used. FILES
