MPD sound confusion

Hello guys,

I'm using MPD and ncmcpp.

So I'm running in troubles because of the volume management in NCMPCPP with Left and right arrow keys. So apparently it acts on the PCM column (according to what I see on alsamixer while playing with ncmpcpp).

So here is my audio part of the mpd config:

audio_output {
    type        "alsa"
    name        "My ALSA Device"

I'd like that it acts on my Master volume how can I change that?
I'm not really experienced with alsa stuff and audio managment in general so i came here.

Hope somebody will help smile

Re: MPD sound confusion

check mixer_device and mixer_control options

mixer_control "Master"

might be enough already.

Re: MPD sound confusion

thank you really much it works !

Also, another quick question, is it possible to mute mpd sound using MPC or another way? Cause I'm coding my own keybindings and would know if it's possible?

Thanks smile

Re: MPD sound confusion

"mpc volume 0", but I'd rather just pause playback.
