    HI, I've been trying to improve the sound in elementry Loki OS by following this tutorial
    but I cant seem to complete the last step as I'm unable to locate the asound.conf file. Any help would be be great. thanks

    "Finally you have to configure the alsa to get the best audio output:"

    $ vim /etc/asound.conf
    The default configuration will be something similar to following:

    # Use PulseAudio by default
    pcm.!default {
    type pulse
    fallback "sysdefault"
    hint {
    show on
    description "Default ALSA Output (currently PulseAudio Sound Server)"
    Change it to this:

    # Use PulseAudio plugin hw
    pcm.!default {
    type plug
    slave.pcm hw
