View Full Version : [ubuntu] Software to amplify sound (not alsamixer)?

May 30th, 2010, 12:21 PM
At Ubuntu 10.04, I amplified sound maximally using alsamixer and volume icon on the menu bar but I want to amplify further.

VLC can amplify sound upto 400% but only inside VLC.

Are there any such program to amplify sound in general at Ubuntu 10.04?

I`m supprised you have the audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) to ask ;)

Thank you for reply.

My question maybe was not good enough.
I want to amplify the sound of a network streaming.
I looked up audacity but it looks like a software only for an offline audio file.

Are audacity able to amplify a network streaming? or any other suggestion?

Jackd (http://jackaudio.org/) can stream audio over a network (http://netjack.sourceforge.net/) but I have not attempted to set this up myself. It will give you complete control of where the audio stream goes, so you could start jackd and then use a simple lapsda amplification plugin, or just run the sounds through vlc and out to an external source.

Have you tried raising the preamp in vlc's own graphic equalizer?
