Janina, I finally put up a preliminary tarball of what I currently
have. It definitely needs some cleaning up, and there is no
readymade user interface yet, you would have to talk to it
using something cpaable of emitting OSC messages. A
very simple class for SuperCollider to do this is included.
For now, you'd need to read the hdsposc.c source file to figure
out how to use it, but hey :-).
I'll keep you informed as soon as I find some time to clean
it up some more. Whats left for me to do is to make
channels symbolic names. Currently, you have to use the same cryptic
numbers as with amixer, i.e., in doublespeed mode, analog in #8
is actually 11! :-). Ideally, I'd like to handle this in the hdsposc
code and just accept messages like:
/route "AN8" "LO1" 0
for routing analog in #8 to line out left, with 0 dB attenuation.
The /route command takes attenuation already in dB, not
integers from 0 to 65535. I find dB lots easier to
work with :-)

Do you have a layout idea how a Ncurses/CLI UI should look like?
How should we go about displaying 18*3 channels of metering info?
For me as a braille user, everything is acceptable, but I gather you probably
want to give some feedback regarding using it with speech...
