Any way to modify the samplerate of the audio player? | Running latest version of EOS + Plasma 5

I am also unsure of weather or not I am using pulseaudio by default. I haven’t installed any other audio related packages, just curious what the default is.

  • I checked the discovery wiki but I did not find the information there on sample rates to be relevant.

  • Both my DAC and my sound system support upwards of 96khz and I think default is 48khz.

Thanks for anyone’s time in advance!

If I don’t have either .conf file, will creating one be read by pipewire?


/etc/pipewire/pipewire.conf (or ~/.config/pipewire/pipewire.conf)

Yes i see the folders are empty on mine also. There is the file in /usr/share/pipewire/pipewire.conf
I think that is the defaults? Just not sure where you change them? :thinking:
I’m thinking you have to create the files as it shows. :man_shrugging:

Seems so:

"To do this make a new file in


with the following contents:

# Adds more common rates = {
    default.clock.allowed-rates = [ 44100 48000 88200 96000 ]

It seems there is a basic guides section in the freedesktop page for the package:
Simple guides

Thanks for your assist! I will write back if this fails.
