Thanks for the report. I don't have any machines that are not running Mavericks to test on. We compiled the code targeting compatibility with 10.7+, so I don't know why it would be failing. Is there any chance that you could try 1.1.4 again and then copy/paste any relevant output from the console?

I have tried removing and reinstalling but 1.1.4 fails to open under 10.8.5. Runs fine on my laptop which is on 10.9.4, but fails to launch under 10.8.5.

There are no functional changes in this version of properVOLUME -- the only reason for the update is to maintain compatibility with Apple's changes in Sandboxing / Gatekeeper API's. As of 10.9.5, OS X will require a new form of developer certificate, so we just re-compiled with new developer certs. But in order to re-compile under current developer tools, we had to update the popup window library and there were some changes that went along with that. It all tested out ok on Mavericks, but as mentioned in another answer, I don't have any macs still running 10.8 to test on.

Bottom line is that we really need to do a re-write of the popup window to base it on more up-to-date API's. This has been a plan for a while, but finding time to do it is difficult because it's a core, substantial change in the app. This will also break compatibility with 10.7 and is another reason for putting it off.

So... my recommendation is if you have a time machine backup of 1.1.3 and you are not upgrading to 10.9.5+, then keep using 1.1.3 and you won't be missing anything in the latest update.

It is working for me. Do you not see "AirPlay" in the list of possible output devices? Here is what it looks like on my system:

Hi, sorry, but I'm not sure I fully understand the question. The app lets you make any standard audio device the current default (or "system") output. So for instance if you have the internal speakers playing and you have a USB headset plugged into your mac, then properVOLUME will let you switch the output to the USB headphones (and back to the speakers, of course). Is that what you are asking?

I am looking for an app that lets me control (i.e. reduce) system wide audio volume on an SPDIF output, as the Mac doesn't support this out of the box. I guess there would be some audio processing needed for this. Can properVOLUME do this? Thanks!

Hi,


If your mac can't change the volume of your optical output device from within the sound control panel, then properVOLUME won't be able to change it either. properVOLUME is more or less a user interface improvement on top of the standard OS X tools for manipulating audio devices. It makes what the mac can already do easier to do, lets you see and do it all in one accessible place with fewer clicks. But it doesn't add any new capabilities to manage audio devices that the mac can't natively do.

Sorry about that!

I see and can switch to AirPlay but that's all what it does, apparently switching to the first AirPlay device it finds. It doesn't show the various AirPlay devices I have, which is kind of a bummer.

Agreed, that is a bummer. I didn't know this and I'd like to fix it. I only have a single AirPlay device here and since it worked, I just assumed that it worked with multiple ones. So I'll do some research on differentiating between AirPlay devices and see if that is something we can address.

Thanks for the head's up.

Does the properVolume really switch the audio outputs by menu option <Output> or I must use another program like  Audio Switcher to do this?

Vote
Official answer
ProperVOLUME will switch input or output for you. When you choose either from the menu, there will appear a small icon next to the menu. If the icon is a mac system icon, then that is the current input or output device. If the icon is a small triangle inside a circle, then that is a button that will switch the system input or output to the device that is showing in the menu next to the button.



Please let me know if that is not the question you are asking or if anything in my answer doesn't make sense.
