    Decent software mixer with multiple volume sliders?

    Just had a look in sound preferences. I'm looking do some recording/listening. I would like a software mixer with lots of sliders, kind of like the one in Windows XP where they are all on the same window.

    Is there any way to get something like this with Ubuntu?

    That would be Volume Applet. Just right click on your panel and choose "add to panel". It should be in the list.

    They changed the sound preferences in Karmic. The familiar gnome mixer applet is gone. You might be interested in gnome-alsamixer

    Yeah, so I see... I take it they aren't aiming karmic and sound professionals?

    Nope. No linux really is. There are virtually no professional quality apps written for linux....and those few that are-are shot down by the state of development of the necessary backends.

    I did find one app that looked promising... Linux music studio or something like that. Never really used it much though.

    I've just installed gnome-alsamixer. It didn't fit on my screen and there's no way to make the window any smaller. hat is the type of thing I'm looking for, but maybe with a little more quality assurance put into the UI

    Gnome-alsamixer will give you a multichannel mixer, its just not there in karmic as Karmic uses Pulse by default.

    Yeah, gnome-alsamixer doesn't fit on my screen. It's too wide and cant be resized any further. I might have to recompile it with a new layout.

    I don't understand why the default mixer on Karmic is so bad.

    I use kmix:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install kmix
    Sure it's a KDE app, but it has a polished feel and it has multi channel mixing and capture source selection so I can switch between the mic jack and the digital mics built into my laptop.
