yamp is an abbreviation of "Yet Another Mixer Program". It is a program, running in an X window, to control your soundcard via the OSS kernel sound driver. This program is specific to Linux.
It queries the soundcard which variables can be influenced, and sets up a notebook control with a page for every variable. Usually you can set the volume of the speakers, bass and treble, volume of the CD player and other input sources. With the sliders on the page, you can set that particular variable for the left and right channel separately.
yamp uses version 2 of the GTK+ toolkit.
What's New in This Release:
· This version requires version 2 of the GTK+ toolkit.
