How to Fix the Low sound problem with headsets

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
(This works on any linux distro but i used Mint so hence why i typed mint 14 nadia-mate)


For Mint 14 Nadia-Mate with headset open xterm then type 'alsamixer' without quotes as mentioned at the start of the forum then press F5 then F3 (dont ask why F5 then F3 it just get it to the right page) to get to the page where it say 'Line' and it would have 0db above it press enter then press up arrow key to increase to ur liking once done press ESC.

also if you are a youtube recorder and microphone is not loud enough do the exact same thing but press F1 to view command buttons then press the one that says capture or record and look for front Mic and Front Mic boost then set them to your liking and press ESC.

any other questions feel free to ask smile.gif

P.S Front means that you are using the front Jack and Rear Means Rear Jack thumb.gif

Remember to do alsactl store after making those changes otherwise they'll reset when you next reboot.

Also, you should never run your levels above 0db otherwise you're running the risk of clipping (destroying your audio quality). If the levels are still too quiet at 0db, then you have other amping issues somewhere along the chain as well (eg your speakers are underpowered)
