The sound system Linux It is decent but not the best. That's why we decided to go over some ways that you can easily improve through PulseAudio that is the audio server installed by default on our favorite distribution Deepin. We'll do it by adding an equalizer to the entire system. The easiest way to add an equalizer is installing the application PulseAudio Equalizer, Which make it available on our complementary repository Deepines a modified version, compatible with Deepin hundred percent. We will cover in detail how you can install and review the ways in which you can more easily manage the sound system in Deepin.

PulseAudio Equalizer in Deepin 15.11

Equalizers coming and are part of some music players regularly are often not enough as the most improved sound when listening to music, but the sound system in general or for other cases when we watch movies or reproduce video via the browser etc . An equalizer for the entire system including all audio into and out of the system it is the ideal solution and that we show today. This means that no matter what you're listening to, whether music, videos or human voices, you can easily adjust it.

Get the equalizer function is easy and starts with installation in the system. Due to the fact that the PulseAudio audio server is open source, they have developed many plugins and add-ons over the years. This equalizer is probably the most used. As a result, many Linux distributions choose to distribute as part of the system unfortunately is not the case with Deepin. Here's how to install it.

Installation of "PulseAudio Equalizer"

[TO] Have downloaded and installed DEEPINES 3.1 since its official website as the following command installs version PulseAudio Equalizer reviewed by the developers of our community who make sure this is 100% compatible with Deepin now and in the future.

[B] Now open a terminal and type the following command as shown below, but be sure to type the command in its entirety:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install pulseaudio-equalizer

After the equalizer is in the system, simply open the menu or launcher applications, look for "Equalizer" or "Audio equalizer for PulseAudio" and start it. When it opens, you will notice that it looks like any other software equalizer. Complete with sliders, presets. Click the preset menu and order the different equalizer settings. These can be changed at any time.

To activate the equalizer, select the "EQ enabled" (Equalizer Enabled) box. Also, have the equalizer to run at any time by checking the box "Keep Settings" (Keep Settings). Finally, click the "Advanced" (Advanced) button to access the advanced settings.

Note: When the user moves the sliders up and down, the equalizer label will change from the preset name to "custom". Save any presets by clicking "Save Presets" (Apply Settings).

Even more control to "pavucontrol"

Pavucontrol in Deepin 15.11

With the equalizer installed, the audio system Linux is much better. However, Pulse Audio is a very confusing tool, as it is, not many users know how to easily manipulate. Therefore, in this section, we will talk about a tool that anyone can install to easily take control of complex audio system Linux. It starts with the installation of the tool pavucontrolAnd we have also made available in Deepines .

It is a tool graphical control for the audio system to Linux. With it, users can do all kinds of things.

Pavucontrol installed in Deepin by opening a terminal and run the following command:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install pavucontrol

Using "pavucontrol"

Within pavucontrolThere are five tabs: play, Recording, Output devices, Input devices Y Configuration. For starters, the playback tab represents any program that is currently using the system PulseAudio sound audio. Control the playback volume of each program in this tab.

If you have multiple audio devices, select the audio device label and click it to switch to another device.

In the tab He Recordingn, Things are very similar. Instead of showing playback, displays all programs that are recording audio. Use the volume sliders to control the input volume. Click on the label to change audio device with which device used to record your system.

The next tab is Input devices. This tab allows users to manage the volume of each individual microphone and the device is configured to recordings.

The eyelash Output devices It is similar to tab Input devices. Like the input section, output allows the user to easily manage the volume of playback devices individually.

Finally, section Configuration all audio equipment shown. In this section, users can easily turn on and turn off the speakers, microphones, etc. individual. To set a device as the default, click the button Set as Plan-B. This makes this device the default audio above all others.

Thank you very much for the guide, is very interesting, he started reading it to try to resolve a problem with my computer, it does not detect when you connect or descoencto my headphones, me two output devices "Line Out HDA Intel" is displayed which is by default and "HDA Intel Analogical Headphones" are those who tngo to activate manually to hear from my headphones when I connect the front of the PC.
I would like to leave it by default since in that the audio comes out, at the same time through the speaker and through the headset (it is rare, I know) Try with the PavuControl leaving it as Plan B as indicated in the guide but the configuration is not saved.

Lyriel Yeah that's true
that is not the first and not the last issue of the latest update which generates more troubles than improvements.
You need to revert to previous stable official pulseaudio-equalizer from deepin repos not from deepines. It works. You can activate it in terminal with qpaeq command.
