SoundSource gives you powerful control over all the audio on your Mac, right from your menu bar.

Get control of audio on a per-application basis. Now you can change the volume of any app relative to others, and play individual apps to different audio devices.

With the Magic Boost and Volume Overdrive features, you can hear your audio even in loud environments, and the built-in equalizer can sweeten the sound. More advanced users will love the ability to apply Audio Units to any audio.

SoundSource provides fast access to all the settings your Mac’s Output, Input, and Sound Effects audio devices offer, right from the menu bar. Adjust input and output levels, tweak the balance, and even switch sample rates. You may never need to open the Sound System Preference again!

SoundSource costs just $29, and Six Colors readers can save 20% on SoundSource with coupon code 6C2020. (Good through May 10th.) Download the free trial today!
