Plugin for smaller volume steps?

Added by Jonathan Archer 7 months ago

Hi. Do you know of any plugin (for Audacious only, not system wide) that allows me to set the minimum volume step? My audio system is too powerful and no matter what I do, the volume is always way too loud. Currently the volume step of Audacious is 5% but I wanna make it 1%, if it's possible.

You don't need a plugin to do this. Just hover above the volume button and use the mouse wheel.

Don't click on the volume button, just hover it with the mouse cursor. Then use the mouse wheel. In this case the step is only 1%.

It's what I do all the time - mouse wheel. I never click anything, if I can control it with the wheel. And yet the volume step is still 5% - even with the mouse wheel.

Are you using the Winamp interface? My hint applies for the GTK/Qt interface.

I have no choice but to use the Winamp style. I've made custom presets for the equalizer and the only way I can access and use them is to run Audacious with the Winamp style.

Try something like:
volume=`audtool get-volume`
volume=$[$volume-1]
audtool set-volume "$volume"

Adjusting the volume step will be possible with 3.11.
The configured value is then used everywhere (GTK interface, Winamp interface, StatusIcon, ...).
