       nmixer -	An interactive text-based sound-mixer control program

       nmixer [-q] [[-s	mixdev=setting]	...]
	      nasmixer [-q] [[-s mixdev=setting] ...]

       NMixer  is  an  interactive text-based sound-mixer control program that
       you can use to set the volume of	each supported mixer  device  of  your
       soundcard.   It automagically detects all devices that are supported by
       your sound hardware, and	shows a	list of	scrollbars for each  of	 these

       You  can	 use  the  up and down arrow keys (or k	and j resp.) to	scroll
       though the list of scrollbars (some do not fit on the screen,  but  you
       can  reach  them	by simply scrolling down at the	bottom of the screen).
       The left	and right arrow	keys (or h and l resp.)	change the volume  for
       the  currently  highlighted  device, and	(if you're lucky), you can use
       home/end/PgUp/PgDn on the numerical keyboard to set left	and right vol-
       ume independently. You can also use 0..5	to set the volume to the posi-
       tion indicated by the numbers on	top of the screen.

       If a device can be recorded from, red brackets will be displayed	 under
       the  device's  name. If it's selected as	recording source, a red	'X' is
       displayed as well. You can set a	recording device with the space	bar.

       If nmixer is compiled with NAS (Network Audio System) support and  it's
       called  as  'nasmixer', it will show the	settings for the NAS mixer de-

       -d device
	      Setst  the  mixer	 device	 to  use  (default  =  /dev/mixer)  -s
	      mixdev=setting Sets a specific mixer device to the volume	speci-
	      fied by setting.	Example: bass=100

       -q     Immediately quit (after the command-line specified settings  are
	      set!).  This only	makes sense if you use command-line options to
	      set volumes. (currently, the interface is	 drawn	while  setting
	      the  mixer, and removed afterwards, which	might be annoying, but
	      it's in the way of being changed :)

       If you find bugs, please	report them on the sourceforge project site.
