Balance Lock

1.0.6
28 May 2019

Prevent left/right drift when plugging in headphones.

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.

What's new in Balance Lock

Version 1.0.6:
New:
  • Refreshed UI to be easier to see if audio is balanced in the middle
  • Added support for Mojave Dark/Light modes
  • Added Internet Access Policy for Little Snitch that describes every connection the app can make
Fixed:
  • Issue where on some newer Mac models, it wouldn't balance the internal speakers

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.

I'm sorry to hear it isn't working properly for you. I'm not sure exactly what popup you are taking about - is it the notification that the audio balance has been restored?

To delete Balance Lock, simply quit it from the menu bar icon and then drag the app icon from the Applications (or Downloads) folder to the trash.

I guess he is referring to the Rate me! Rate me!-Popup that appears every second time I re-plug a monitored Device. I can of course click on No, thanks, but this does not help. So, yeah, getting rid of that would be very nice.

Otherwise the App is working nicely and as intended. Thanks.

This issue has not been resolved as I just downloaded this app two days ago and am having this issue. I literally have to restart my computer to get rid of the popup and it keeps popping up right in the middle of me recording screenshare videos, causing me to have to start over.
