Pirate radio: sound severely clipping


#1

Hi,

My pirate radio can play, via vlc, all fine. Except that audio is too loud, well not too loud but it sounds as if the volume is at max; clipping.
How can I resolve that?
I already lowered the volume using alsamixer to 25%, helped only a bit.

Sounds like the volume might be too high in VLC, are you running the Pirate Radio / VLC Radio software? Does pressing the volume down button several times help?

I did that as well, the volume gets lower but still is distorted as if it is very high.

You need this software http://get.pimoroni.com/pirateradio-v20171113.zip . Format sd-card (sdformatter) than save zip-file too sd-card. Edit wpa_supplicant.conf for wifi and playlist.m3u for stations, files are in the root. SSH is on. hostname=piratepython password=p1r4t3 Greats from Bas.

@basvb I have already installed that software!

I believe this is the solution to distorted audio:

I will apply this fix to the Pirate Radio software too.
