I'm trying to remap my stereo sound to mono (due to a broken headphone), following the answers here but I'm getting confused by the pacmd command.

I'm using pacmd load-module module-remap-sink to create a new "mono" sink in my system:

pacmd load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=mono master=alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo channels=2 channel_map=mono,mono

However, if I run this command more than once it will create a new sink everytime. Right now, according to pacmd list-sinks I have already created 3 different sinks: mono, mono.2 and mono.3.

Is there a way to undo this and remove these newly-created sinks? Right now the only way I know is to restart the computer, which is making debugging these audio issues take forever.

 pactl unload-module module-remap-sink
  • I recommend to use pasystray, then you can switching between sinks via mouse. also can unload modules Aug 15, 2016 at 22:14
