Control the volume

Control the volume of your raspberry pi on linux

In this tutorial I will show you how to adjust the volume of your Raspberry Pis using the shell (console). In my tutorial I use the Raspberry Pi Model B with Raspbian.


  1. Log in either directly via the Raspberry Pi or from an external computer using SSH connection to th Raspberry Pi.
  2. Enter the command alsamixer. If this is not available, install alsamixer using sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils
  3. Now you can use the arrow keys to adjust the volume of your pis either louder or quieter.

Have fun!
