I have an Asus UL20FT-A1 laptop whose sound at maximum is not high enough. I have to open the Sound Settings menu and go over the limitation to get a high enough level. Any idea how I can fix this?
I faced volume low issue, I fixed by setting Zoom Application Volume to max.
Settings -> Sound -> Applications see here
Note : I see Zoom volume control available under Applications tab only when Zoom is running.
Ubuntu version I am running : 18.04.4 LTS
My Zoom version : 5.0.413237.0524
This was fixed for me by installing
pavucontrol per Sorin Veștemean's answer, going to the Configuration tab and altering my USB headset output format to analog stereo output + mono input, going back to the Output Devices tab and bumping THAT output's volume up to 100% (it was at something like 50%).
Opinion: The fact that Ubuntu fails to retain my audio output settings through reboots and seemingly randomizes the configuration until I go in and manually fix it half the time with a custom-installed tool is a ridiculous usability issue.
