"There’s no easier or faster way to send the Mac’s audio output to Apple TV and AirPlay..." - Mac360 Review

AudioSwitcher is a menu bar that allows you to switch quickly between all available input and output devices.  In addition you can change the volume of any device without having to change your current input / output.

You can quickly change the sample rate or output to multiple devices at the same time.

Using the preferences screen you can choose to ignore certain devices, set a default start-up input or output device as well as it’s volume.

AudioSwitcher supports any device available to the system: AirPlay, USB, HDMI, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth etc.

AudioSwitcher is ideal if you have multiple sound devices attached to your Mac and want to be able to switch between them without having to use System Preferences.

It’s great for a home theatre set-up allowing selection of default devices (and their volumes) on start-up as well as allowing you to quickly route output to AirPlay devices in one click.

A Must-Have For Mac Audiophiles

Puts audio source switching on your menu bar, where you need it, not buried somewhere in preference menus. Easily switch between audio input and output sources.

º Provides the ability to “hide” unused sources, custom-tailoring the menu to those devices that you have.
º Provides controls for sampling rate, volume, and muting for audio devices (based on the capabilities of those devices).
º Provides the ability to set the default startup audio devices (input and output)

Unless you just listen to sound coming from your Mac's internal speakers, you need this app!

A great application that just keeps getting better, created and supported by a responsive, active developer.

Note: Volume control is only supported if the hardware device provides a volume control. Some, like HDMI and optical digital (TOSLINK), do not. Don’t rate the app with one star or post an angry review if this does not provide volume control for your device.

Does not allow volume control for multi-output devices

Bought this to be able to control the volume of either the aggregated multi-output device or even each individual output. No dice. The audio slider for the line-out or digital out lines chops the audio off for a few ms, then brings it back up at the same volume.

I’m sure it does something well, but it doesn’t ‘allow you to change the volume of any device without having to change your input/output’, and nothing I need to do.

Great For Dual Thunderbolt Displays!

This is exactly what I was looking for! Now I can set the audio levels of all four speakers across the two monitors and get a great stereo feel! Great app!
