[icecast] live feed volume checking

When feeding icecast with live audio (i.e. using darkice) I usually adjust 
the recording volume "by hear".

Anybody knows of any tool to monitor the audio volume of a soundcard, 
preferably using a console terminal (I have no X installed)? Most of 
console mixer controls allow "setting" the volume, what I would like to see 
is the level of audio being sampled during recording and playback.

Liveice has a nice control bar, but I found out that there may be 
considerable distortion even if the level shows no clipping.

Any experience to share ?

Thanks.

Alfredo
