Have you ever wanted to mute your microphone exactly the same way as Output Volume? Now it is possible.

MuteMyMic provides you with easy way to control Input Volume from the status bar or via keyboard shortcuts.

Keyboard shortcuts:
- (F5) - decrease volume
- (F6) - increase volume
- (option+F5) - Mute/Unmute
- (option+F6) - Maximize volume

Application works in a background and allows you to control the Input Volume with a single key or mouse click while at the same time you can enjoy your favorite applications that require your mic.

Now, you can adjust volume of your Internet phone calls right from the keyboard shortcuts.

Since version 1.7 MuteMyMic is integrated with Growl. It will notify you each time input volume was changed by other applications.

There is a new feature - "force mute". Whenever MuteMyMic determines that microphone was unmuted it will mute it again (this feature can be enabled/disable via Preferences panel).

Customer Reviews

Works great

I have been using this app for the last couple of days, and works just great. Because I trigger my mic On and off throughout the day for the purpose of using Dragon Dictate, this application allows me to use the keyboard shortcut to make that process easier. Thanks for developing this app.


I use a Mac Book Pro OS X v10.7.5 and a headset. It is important in "System Preferences" to have the correct input selected. When using the headset the correct input is "external microphone" if "Line In" is highlighted the software stops having any affect.

Mute Toggle - Hardwired to F5/F6

while this application is running my F5/F6 keys are mapped to this application to mute/unmute the mic. I found no way to change this mapping. There is no setting on the application nor in Keyboard preferences is there an entry for this application.
