Sound Control for Mac2.6.4

09 July 2021

Software volume mixer.

What is Sound Control for Mac

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 2.6.4:
  • Early support for Monterey.
  • Removed unsupported Separate Safari Sites on Monterey.
  • Fixed switch behavior.
  • No longer quits after dismissing the security settings installer guide.
  • Changing the default output and input device no longer closes the menu.
  • Now shows activity status for inputs.
  • Fixed issue where setting the output device via applescript could turn Sound Control off.

Seriously buggy. Great when it works, but often it doesn’t', and I end up with no control of volume whatsoever. Developer doesn't respond to support requests.

I'm 99% sure it seriously messed up my computers audio. I had no problems till I installed this and now apps won't play audio, will stop playing audio, or will jump to the end of videos. Core audio is always messing up now and I have to restart it constantly. I checked the installed applications from when this started happening, and this is the only application I installed and I didn't change anything else related to my audio system. I would avoid.

This is essential for me. It really should be a part of the OS. I use this more than any other control panel which is why it's really nice to have it on my menu bar. I primarily got this to use with my USB audio interface in order to control the volume of all the various apps, e.g. if I"m playing along with a Spotify song, I can control the various volumes so easy so I can hear myself play. Excellent app.

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.
