The menubar audio volume app done right; the best-looking, simplest, cleanest, fastest and most functional way to set audio volume input/output levels on the mac.

HAVING TROUBLE SWITCHING AUDIO DEVICES? Please read this FAQ answer which should help:

Mavericks ready.

Have you ever plugged a USB headset for video chat or SIP phone calls into your mac and had your head about blown off by too much volume in your ears? Easily, quickly, and precisely (100 levels of control in the sliders) change the volume level of any standard audio device connected to your mac.

Have you ever been greeted by a perplexed look and funky head waggle from your video call buddy because your lips were moving but they couldn't hear anything you said? Control your microphone level quickly and precisely with visual metering.

Have you ever plugged an extra audio device into your mac and wanted to change the volume levels for that device without click, click, clicking your way into the System Preferences and changing the default output device back and forth even though what you _really_ wanted to do was change the volume on the non-default device? properVOLUME lets you quickly and easily change volume levels on any audio device WITHOUT switching the default device.

See which audio device is set as the default system input and output and quickly switch to another device with a button push.

This app is for anyone who ever wanted to have extremely precise control of their mac's audio input and output levels in an uncluttered, eye-pleasing, uber-functional, always ready to hand control panel. Always there, always ready, always easy.

Customer Reviews

It works! I didn't realize you needed to push the button to make it change.

Updating my earlier review because the developer got in contact with me to let me know what I was missing and it DOES work. When you switch output/input device you need to then click the little triangle icon to make the change. The triangle then changes to a system icon to let you know that you have now changed the cooresponding device for the system. While not intuitive to me initially now that I know how this works.. I love it. I think the system icon was what confused me. Thanks for reaching out!
