Is there any way to set a different volume for every alarm? Samsung has had such a feature for ages, but is it possible to do something similar on a stock rom?

Third party apps don't seem to be able to do it.

Two workarounds possible include - a) Using tasker to change the alarm volume before and after that particular alarm

b) Increasing/decreasing the volume of each and every alarm tone to something "louder" and something "softer", then copying these new alarm sounds to sd card/alarms

Both are significantly tedious as compared to Samsung's method.

I also have root access, if it helps.

Edit - I'm running marshmallow 6.0.1


I would recommend editing the ringtone files, because you don't even need to leave your Android in order to do it.

Searching the Play Store, I've found 2 apps in question that claim to adjust volume on .ogg and mp3 files:

  1. MP3 Gain - Play Store
  2. MP3/OGG Volume Booster - Play Store

Hope one of these do the trick for ya. I love the Tasker idea (I use Tasker in many hackish ways that would be considered unorthodox haha)

Anyway, hope this helps

  • Thanks for the apps, I tried both, but the first wouldn't convert and the second doesn't appear to boost the volume. I still can use something like Audacity (windows), but I am looking for some other way to increase the volume - something not so tedious. What's annoying is the fact that Samsung HAS such a feature, so it can be easily implemented on Android, yet it does not seem available. – user5816272 Feb 4 '16 at 2:25
  • Well, what device are you trying to get it working on? If it's a Samsung device you should be able to transfer that Clock apk, but it probably won't work on other brands. Samsung probably holds the patent for individual alarm volumes. – Aaron Gillion Feb 4 '16 at 2:28
  • Not Samsung, its a Motorola moto g3. I was also thinking of the apk method, but - a) not Samsung b) still pretty roundabout method. I should not need to use a different app for this. I am okay with it, but again, it won't install. – user5816272 Feb 4 '16 at 2:32

Check my app on Android playstore - Alarm + Task Logger FREE

You can customize seperate volume, ringtone, volume fade-in(volume build up time) for each alarm.
