I'm using clean fresh Raspbian Wheezy image (downloaded from this site earlier this week).
Installed MPD. The volume control in MPD (through mpc or other clients) works, and is reflected to the "alsamixer" settings. The problem is, it is reflected too rough:
75% volume in MPD = 36% in ALSAMIXER = "-22.58" db gain, barely hearing sound
85% volume in MPD = 54% in ALSAMIXER = "-11.94" db gain, low sound
90% volume in MPD = 67% in ALSAMIXER = "-6.62" db gain, quite low sound
95% volume in MPD = 82% in ALSAMIXER = "-1.30" db gain, moderate sound
100% volume in MPD = 100% in ALSAMIXER = "-4.0" db gain, normal sound
The problem is, my client of choice - "MPoD" for Iphone only allows controlling MPD volume settings by 5% step, which goes far too rough, I'm left with only 2-3 steps before sound goes too low.
Does anyone here know a way to remap MPD volume on alsa volume in more smooth (linear) way?
