AUDIOCTL(1)                OpenBSD Reference Manual                AUDIOCTL(1)

     audioctl - control audio device

     audioctl [-f file] [-n] -a
     audioctl [-f file] [-n] name [...]
     audioctl [-f file] [-n] -w name=value [...]

     The audioctl command displays or sets various audio system driver vari-
     ables.  If a list of variables is present on the command line, audioctl
     prints the current value of those variables for the specified device.  If
     the -a flag is specified, all variables for the device are printed.  If
     the -w flag is specified, audioctl attempts to set the specified vari-
     ables to the given values.

     The -f flag can be used to give an alternative audio control device. The
     default is /dev/audioctl.

     The -n flag suppresses printing of the variable name.

     To set the playing sampling rate to 11025 you can enter
           audioctl -w play.sample_rate=11025
     Note that many of the variables that can be inspected and changed with
     audioctl are reset when the device is opened.  This can be circumvented
     like this
           (cat file.au; audioctl -f /dev/stdout -a) > /dev/audio
           (audioctl -f /dev/stdout -w blocksize=1024; cat file.au) >

     /dev/audioctl  audio control device

     AUDIOCTLDEVICE  The audio control device to use.

     mixerctl(1),  audio(4),  sysctl(8)

     The audioctl command first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

OpenBSD 2.6                       May 4, 1997                                1
