I just bought a Asus Xonar U3, but it's way too loud. So I played around a little bit and compared values of the Xonar U3 and my old Soundcard in /var/lib/asound.state and noticed there are some values which are different. Specifically I am looking at this block:

    control.4 {
            iface MIXER
            name 'PCM Playback Volume'
            value.0 1
            value.1 1
            comment {
                    access 'read write'
                    type INTEGER
                    count 2
                    range '0 - 37'
                    dbmin -3700
                    dbmax 0
                    dbvalue.0 -3600
                    dbvalue.1 -3600

Is it somehow possible to change the values range, dbmin and dbmax?


These values describe the device. If you change them, you do not change how the device actually behaves.

  • Hence the question, HOW to change the values of the device... – KrawallKurt Jul 30 '16 at 10:33
