 With Linux we make use the pulseaudio audio server, which is default with pretty much every Linux distro these days, and the [[http://plugin.org.uk/ladspa-swh/docs/ladspa-swh.html|Steve Harris' LADSPA Plugins]], available from your distro's online repository. Then we just tell the pulseaudio daemon (our local audio server) to add in an audio compressor plugin into our audio path and make it the "default audio sink" or "default audio output device". And voila! From now on you'll have proper clean leveled audio on your Linux installation. No more games, videos or music suddenly "screaming" or shouting at you.  With Linux we make use the pulseaudio audio server, which is default with pretty much every Linux distro these days, and the [[http://plugin.org.uk/ladspa-swh/docs/ladspa-swh.html|Steve Harris' LADSPA Plugins]], available from your distro's online repository.

But for anyone else who prefer so "set audio level and forget", THIS is a very nice, easy and fast solution, that is been **tested on any Ubuntu Linux starting from 16 to 19** so far.+Well, that might not be a thing for audiophiles and lovers of classic music, who prefer to have a large dynamic audio range.
