ProperVolume doesn't start under OSX 10.8.5 since I updated to 1.1.4. Reinstalled V1.1.3 which workes still fine.

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?

It is in Launchpad but it doesn't start. The console report an error and finally a crash:

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:

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

Answer
ProperVOLUME 2 years ago
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.

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.

Answer

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.

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!

Answer
ProperVOLUME 3 years ago

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!

Seems like a problem I am seeing on many forums, as the native Mac sound defaults to the app being used, like Skype or GoToMeeting. The volume keeps creeping up but if proper volume could allow you to lock the input or output to a specific level, then this could solve the issue. I would purchase this for my whole team of sales reps. Thanks

Running Yosemite changing Output from Airplay to something else removes that AirPlay device from the list of available AirPlay devices. Restarting the Mac helps getting it back. But since I listen often on one of my three AirPlay devices, its really really annoying.
Also I'd like to promote http://propervolume.userecho.com/topic/156214-doesnt-show-airplay-devices/ since, as said, I have three devices connected over Airplay.
Maybe you'll find a hint digging thro this: https://github.com/nriley/SoundSource or this ./SoundSource-250.zip since they were able to show the individual devices since 10.5. Unfortunately it's broken since 10.9 :-/
