Description:

A KDE mixer application for KDE 3 and ALSA, that was born to provide some support for what official kmix lacked.

I've been asked if kamix is still worth development... I just don't know!!!

This 0.6.6 will be the last release of kamix. Since now, I'll start a new project named kalsamix, which will be a copy of kamix, to avoid name clash with SuSE's kamix and kamix linux distro. Stay tuned on kalsamix




Changelog:

Changes since 0.6.5:
* Fixed a bad check for item enums, that could lead kamix to crash at startup
* Correctly show dB values both on item and on OSD
* Support enumerated values on each channel
* In DCOP interface, accept a increment/decrement value
* Better tray icon update
* Added presets to systray menu
* Better channel detection
* Removed Debian subdir

NOTE: precompiled binaries have VU-meter built in, thus aRts is required (and launched). If you don't want so, please recompile from sources configuring with --disable-vumeter

 kamix is MUCH better

 
 by lkcl on: Aug 16 2004

1) kamix shows the names of channels.

2) kamix shows the difference between certain kinds of channels (buttons, menus)

3) on a USB audio device, kamix gets the input and output devices correct!

4) on a USB audio device, kmix things that the microphone is an output device!!!

if you fix that multiple-instances bug it'll be a useable program.

but it whould still be nice if the author of kamix would be able to add these things to kmix (or if kmix is replaced by kamix) so there isnt that much duplication of efforts. he, or the author of kmix, could start working on some other app ;-)

This is an old question... kamix and kmix LOOK similar, but they are built upon completely different basis. They can hardly share something, beside the basic ideas.

Kamix is based on ALSA directly, and gets rid of mid-layer as aRts, and it can be useful for those for which kmix is not completely functional (for example, kmix does not handle - so far - enumerated items).

After all, it's a matter of choice :)

That, and once something is in KDE it stays there. Witness Kuickshow vs. Gwenview and showimg.

 debian package

does not work. I tried to install it on my debian unstable. But when kamix shows up, it crashed almost on every button click, and it doesn't show any sliders, just an empty form with a black line at the left.

I personally use debian unstable on my boxes, so it sounds weird. Could you try to launch it from a konsole and see if it says something useful?

 redesigning kamix

What do you think about redesigning kamix. Stereo and surround outputs could be seperated. Something similar to "Creative Surround Mixer".

I think that "Creative Surround Mixer" is simple to use, and it would be a big improvement for kamix.

If you're referring to "grouping" elements together, well ALSA does not handle informations about "logical" groups, also because they are pretty hardware-dependant.

I'm planning anyway to implement a free grouping, so that you can decide which elements to see "together" and possibily show/hide them on the fly. This requires a not-so-little bit of work, so it will take some time... but stay tuned...

the thing I miss in kmix is an equalizer (and maybe some other effects). I heard you can use arts for that, I tried, but its not easy... not at all...

Well, for an equalizer, you have to grab the sound out of your soundcard, that is dealing with the underlaying sound server; that's exactly what I want to avoid, letting this piece of software completely sound server independent (you see, the vumeter is based on aRts, and many people asked me to rip it out because they don't use it, this is just an example).

Some soundcards support vumeters in hardware (eg ice1712, ice1724) - would it be possible to rip out the current vumeter and only add it for cards that do support it directly (using it the way it's supported, ice1712 based cards support hardware metering independent for every i/o)?

Check, for example, envy24control, the official ALSA control panel for ice17xx cards, to see how this is done...

KMix is fine _now_, but it wasn't when I started this project; kmix was based on aRts, while kamix is purely base on ALSA since the beginning, and this is not a little difference. Then things evolved, gaps was filled and so on. There are a few, little things that kmix still doesn't handle (e.g. enumerated elements), a few differences, this is why I keep this project alive :)

alsa based? So why launching kamix makes artsd wakeup ?it's the only application in my system that do that, and that's bad because I don't want it running.
kmix instead don't launch artsd...

VUMeter is the only piece needing aRts. You should recompile kamix configuring with --disable-vumeter to avoid this dependency, and to avoid kamix to launch aRts.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
