PTHVolume is an utility for Mac OS X 10.5 and later that is used to control the volume of your Mac OS X machine. For most people the included Mac OS X widget is sufficient for controlling volume. There are however two situations in which PTHVolume 2 is a much more useful alternative.

Multiple Output Device Control. The Mac OS X 10.5 volume widget works for changing the volume if you only have a single audio device connected to your computer. But what happens when you have multiple audio devices? This is where PTHVolume 2 excels, you can individually control the volume of multiple devices without opening up more...

Does NOT work in OS X 10.8.5. This WAS actually still working (other than it would not auto-start at startup) in Mountain Lion up to 10.8.4, but is now completely malfunctional ever since I allowed the system to update itself to 10.8.5. Bummer. This was a 5-star utility for me.

I'm running it on 10.9 right now, YMMV. Like you mentioned, I still have to manually start it every time the system reboots, but those times are rare enough.

Still working for me running Lion! It doesn't always automatically pick up when I switch input sources, but otherwise it's going strong. An old favorite.

PTHVolume is working fine for me in Snow Leopard 10.6.4 with all current updates. The only minor glitch is System Preferences relaunching in 32-bit mode when opening the PTHVolume preferences pane.

This is very cool but please remove or make optional the sound feedback when changing volume. I can't use it. It is jarring especially when using headphones. If anyone knows a way around this please reply.

On 10.6, moving the sliders in the PTHVolume menu sounds an alert at the end of the adjustment. I avoid this by (1) disabling "Play feedback" in the Sound preferences and (2) changing the output volume using the volume keys on my extended keyboard.

Agreed. Great tool, but I wish it would follow the general "Play feedback" setting in the Sound pref pane. If it can't be done, then in my opinion it's definitely a better idea to just not have any feedback sounds at all.

Does anyone know of a way to hack into this to disable the feedback sounds?

I love this app - but I get one annoying problem: Once PTHVolume is running, my Dock becomes sluggish (the animation etc.) ... I hope that this can be fixed :(

Requires 10.5 *already*? 10.5 has only been out a couple of days!

I suppose it's inevitable that there will be "10.5 only" apps, but it's too bad the pre-Leopard version of this program did not have these same nice features.

It's not THAT hard to implement version-specific features so they're no-ops on earlier versions. That way you retain a single code base that works on multiple releases.

Basically, I was unable to extract the prefpane using either the built-in compression engine or Stuffit Expander.

I guess we'll have to wait for a corrected upload to rate it.

Did the downloaded file have a .bz2 on the end of the filename?

Delete the .bz2 filetype suffix from the downloaded file and the .dmg will open normally.

Yes, that fixed it.

It seems somewhat less full-featured than Sound source from Rogue Amoeba, but I'll try them both for a couple of days and see how they compare.

Still running Tiger so I can't try PV2 yet, but a big advantage over SS (which I'm using) seems to be letting you change the volume of different audio devices instead of just selecting them. I've never found a convenient way to independently change volumes of internal/external audio output devices on Tiger.
