Balance Lock overview

Balance Lock keeps your Mac's audio centred, preventing left/right drift. It's the perfect utility for making sure that the audio stays centred when plugging or unplugging headphones. It was designed out of frustration from the long standing OS X bug where the audio balance can randomly move away from the center. It's simple to use and runs in the background unintrusively.

Works fine with no apparent negative impacts on performance.

This app would be fine if it were not for the stupid review popup that is apparently impossible to get rid of. It's ruining my screenshare videos and making me have to restart every single time it pops up because clicking on any of the button on the popup does not get rid of it. Seriously annoying and unacceptable, especially for a paid app.

not worth it Now I have an intrusive popup that won't go away, and difficulty figuring out how to delete this app.
