Love this app! Simple and easy to use, does everything I needed it to and even helped me with quiet movie files on my old MacBook. In comparison to similar apps costing over 50$, this is stellar. I use it with XCode 12.4 on Catalina. Go to the GitHub if there are any problems; the explanation there is straight forward.

Really cool, easy-to-use interface -- but moving the sliders has absolutely no effect on volume under Catalina

I found this app very useful and effective, but it does not seem to work with Big Sur.
