       alsamixer [options]


       alsamixer is an ncurses mixer program  for  use  with  the
       ALSA  soundcard  drivers.  It supports multiple soundcards
       with multiple devices.


       alsamixer [options]

       -h, -help
              Help: show available flags.

       -c <card number or idenfication>
              Select the soundcard to use, if you have more  than
              one. Cards are numbered from 0 (the default).

       -D <device identification>
              Select the mixer device to control.

       -g <toggle color settings>
              Toggle the using of colors.

       -s <minimize mixer window>
              Minimize the mixer window.


       alsamixer  recognizes  the  following keyboard commands to
       control the soundcard.

   General Controls
       The Left and right arrow keys are used to select the chan­
       nel  (or device, depending on your preferred terminology).
       You can also use n ("next") and p ("previous").

       The Up and Down Arrows control the  volume  for  the  cur­
       rently  selected  device.  You can also use + or - for the
       same  purpose.  Both  the  left  and  right  signals   are
       affected.  For  independent  left  and  right control, see
       L re-draws the screen.

   Quick Volume Changes
       PageUp increases volume by 5.

       PageDown decreases volume by 5.

       End sets volume to 0.

       You  can  also control left & right levels for the current
       channel independently, as follows:

       [Q | W | E ]  -- turn UP [ left | both | right ]

       [Z | X | C ] -- turn DOWN [ left | both | right ]

       If the currently selected mixer channel is  not  a  stereo
       channel,  then  all UP keys will work like W, and all DOWN
       keys will work like X.

       Quit the program with ALT Q, or by  hitting  ESC.   Please
       note  that  you might need to hit ESC twice on some termi­
       nals since it's regarded as a prefix key.


       amixer(1), aplay(1), arecord(1)


       Some terminal emulators (e.g. nxterm) may not  work  quite
       right with ncurses, but that's their own damn fault. Plain
       old xterm seems to be fine.
