My thanks once again to Rogue Amoeba and SoundSource for sponsoring Six Colors this week. SoundSource is a utility that gives you so much control over all the audio on your Mac, right from your menu bar.
As Dan wrote about SoundSource about a year ago, “It’s one of those apps that you don’t know you need until you use it for a while—then you wonder why it’s not installed on every single Mac you use.”
SoundSource lets you take control of Mac audio on a per-application basis. You can change the volume of any app relative to others, and play individual apps to different audio devices. The app also lets you adjust audio dynamically, so you can hear your audio even in loud environments.
And here’s a cool thing: If you have a DisplayPort or HDMI device that fails to offer volume adjustment, SoundSource can help there too. It gives those devices a proper volume slider, and the Super Volume Keys feature makes your keyboard volume controls work as well.
SoundSource costs just $29, and Six Colors readers can save 20% on SoundSource with coupon code SIXSS. (This offer has been extended through May 15th!) Download the free trial today!
