Automatic Level Control (ALC) PulseAudio + LADSPA

This is the bare minimum of information you require to make this function work. I hate long drivelling posts.


sudo apt-get install swh-plugins


pacmd list-sinks|grep name:

It will report your output device name.

Mine in this example is:
name: <alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo>
Paste the text in bold from your results, replacing the * below:

pacmd load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_sink master=* plugin=dyson_compress_1403 label=dysonCompress control=0,1,0.5,0.99

It's important you execute the command above on one line, no word wrap.
Put the whole line in a script, make it executable and make it part of your "Startup Applications".
Go to your "Sound Preferences", click the "Output" tab and choose the LADSPA plugin you just added.
