I use alsaequal for equalize my audio, hitherto ok, but all know that after equalizer the volume is low, some equalizers have a control called "Pre-AMP" that solve this problem, but in Alsaequal haven't this control.

I've tried using ALSA's softvol plugin but this plugin cause distortion, that isn't acceptable for me!

So, someone have a solution for me ?

  • Does the solution have to use alsaequal or is something else OK? – slm Aug 12 '13 at 5:47
  • @slm no, solution can use something else. – Victor Aurélio Aug 14 '13 at 0:53

An alternative to alsaequal that I've used in the past is called normalize.

Normalize is a tool for adjusting the volume of audio files to a standard level. This is useful for things like creating mixed CD's and mp3 collections, where different recording levels on different albums can cause the volume to vary greatly from song to song.


$ normalize -a -10dBFS -b *.mp3
