>> SAVE YOUR EARDRUMS
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.
>> BE HEARD IN VIDEO CALLS
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.
>> DON'T FUMBLE AROUND
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.
>> QUICKLY SWITCH DEFAULT INPUT / OUTPUT
See which audio device is set as the default system input and output and quickly switch to another device with a button push.
>> ALWAYS READY IN THE MENU BAR
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.

What's New in Version 1.1.4
Updated for the latest versions of OS X.
EXACTLY what I was looking for.
I was SO completely annoyed that I had to switch the default output device just to change the volume on that device. The default UI for adjusting different device volume levels leaves much to be desired. This app is a must have if you're a streamer that streams to Twitch.tv like me because I can easily change SoundFlower's channel volume levels or my speaker volume levels without having to temporarily annoy viewers by switching the default output device away from what I want it to be and then back again.
Why this isn't what the default menu bar volume interface looks like I have no idea. Great work!
My only complaint is that it completely wigs out when you connect bluetooth headphones.
PS - Thanks for not charging a million dollars for this small utility like many other options on the app store. This was a few bucks well spent.
