Sound Control

2.3.3
04 April 2019

Software volume mixer.

Overview

Sound Control lets users use a software volume mixer. Sound Control enables users to easily and quickly change app volumes as well as selectively apply a system-wide EQ to app audio. Sound Control does this by adding a software mixer to the menu bar of your Mac. In addition to the volume mixer, Sound Control also adds a software EQ to your audio output allowing users to easily tailor the sound of their Mac's audio to their specific taste or to properly calibrate to the frequency response of their speakers.

Features
  • Per-app volume control, including mute
  • System-wide EQ with 10 or 31 bands
  • Easy control via menu bar item or hotkeys
  • Add software and keyboard control to HDMI and other audio devices
  • Independently route each app's audio to a different output device

What's new in Sound Control

Version 2.3.3:
  • Volume sliders in the input and output device submenus now respond to system volume changes.
  • No longer uses (S) devices on Mojave.
  • Routing is back on Mojave.
  • No longer shows the Quit warning dialog on restart or logout.
  • Fixed a bug on Mojave that caused EQ not to take effect when an app is launched.
  • Turning Master EQ off now properly affects apps using the Master EQ.
  • EQ settings window can now switch between apps in the title bar.

Requirements for Sound Control

  • Intel 64
  • OS X 10.11.0 or later

This is an amazing piece of software. I bought it 10 minutes after I first tried it. I often visit sites while I'm listening to my favorite musics on Spotify. Unfortunately many sites like the CNN contain videos that start up as soon as you open them. You will then have to turn off the audio of such videos manually - a tedious task if you have to do it for tens of sites you visit every day. With sound control you just turn off audio for Safari, Chrome o whatever browser you are using and you'll no longer have to bother about the sudden audio intrusions. Another handy use is when I listen to old songs and need to increase the treble to make them clearer. All I have to do is choosing treble from its comfortable menu and it's done. Gorgeous application to put it mildly! Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

I love this app, does just what I need it to. The new icon in the menu bar, I don't like. EDIT: And, they put the old icon back! Thanks!

Fantastic idea, been looking for a replacement for Rogue Amoeba's "Detour" for years. Just want to route audio, don't need volume adjustment or EQ. Unfortunately, this doesn't actually work. Installed it, only a subset of audio-generating apps show up. Deleted, reinstalled, and now a larger subset shows up, but still not many of them. Most importantly, not iTunes. Enormous potential, but it has to actually work.

It will let your BASAL CPU Level become Higher (increases 2 or 3 times). If you open other app which has Sound function, using this kind of apps will trigger higher CPU, because "Sound Control" app stays in the background.

I'm running it 24/7 and it's not using hardly any resources, as confirmed by Activity Monitor.

About this, I took a large time to take screenshots and contacted with the developer, and finally he gave up fixing this issue with no reply.

The fact is "com.static.soundcontrol..." took a high CPU usage on my CPU usage list.

Really this application gives you total control of all the sound of your Macbook. My test of Sound Control application was on my Macbook Pro 13 (mid-2012), which installs the system ... High Seirra really Sound Control was fast throughout my test ... not slowed the boot my system. The quality of the sound is excellent and you always have the possibility to change the style of the sound. The interface has a beautiful design with a simple menu for use and easy. I confirm and highly recommend Sound Control to all Mac OSx users and give 5 stars to this application.

This is the 2nd!
Also, nothing happens when I click the Register button. The Register button becomes active when I enter my name and code.
Does the 1.0 License Code work with 2.0?
Disappointed keyboard commands have not been added to version 2.0 to assign to output choices.

I have the Additional Components Required install loop too.
The additional components download etc but after installing I'm prompted to install them yet again. I have reported this to the author directly on before comments posted here but hey, they don't seem interested in acknowledging issues with the installer.
