variable alarm volume will be essential as i typically set quiet music with a back up loud alarm about 30min later. (this method http://veenix.blogspot.com/2005/10/a...o-wake-up.html )
i voted for the appropriate Bug (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9329 ), but while waiting for the formal GUI edit, how do i go about manually editing the PREFS responsible for individual alarm volume?

I know this is an old thread, but I only just got around to updating SqueezeCenter to 7.3 this weekend and found that ExtendedAlarm didn't work, leading me here.
I originally bought my Squeezebox explicitly for a smart alarm clock that wouldn't wake me with inane commercial radio morning jabber. I modified the original Alarm clock plugin way, way back to add an extended fade-in time to help with waking up gently. If you set the alarm for 8am with a 15 minute fade-in, it was smart enough to start the alarm at 7:45 and would reach the full alarm volume setting at 8am. After finding ExtendedAlarm (which I love, thank you!) and hacking an extended fade-in preference in minutes, I've been very happy.
For those who want to wake gently but not rely on an always-soft alarm to do so, I think you'd get what you want from a long fade-in option in an alarm. Having to juggle two different alarms is a pain if I want to make a quick, one-time change to my wake up time (though I did toy with linked alarms as in "20 minutes after alarm X").
I guess I'll be modifying another Alarm clock or sticking with SqueezeCenter 7.1. Sigh.
