[Solved] Prevent Over-Amplification in pactl

Hello,

Is there a way to stop `pactl` from allowing sink volumes to go over 100? I need pulseaudio for some of my applications, and the only way I found to avoid this was to use `amixer` to set the volumes. However, this becomes a little finicky.

You can query the current volume beforehand, but it's a bit cumbersome to do with pactl

You may use a console pulse mixer that allows to configure this, like ponymix or pamixer or pulsemixer or...

You could possibly use pulseaudio-ctl as a wrapper.

Thank you, I installed `pulseaudio-ctl` and everything worked fine.
