My thanks to Rogue Amoeba’s SoundSource for sponsoring Six Colors this week. SoundSource is a utility that gives you powerful control over all the audio on your Mac, right from your menu bar.
Dan wrote about SoundSource about a year ago here on Six Colors, and here’s part of what he said: “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. I can output different apps to my headphones (via my USB audio interface), through my iMac’s speakers, and to the external speakers hooked up to my iMac.
The app also lets you adjust audio dynamically, so you can hear your audio even in loud environments. The built-in equalizer sweetens the sound. You can even apply Audio Units effects to audio as it’s played. And all accessible right from the convenience of the menu bar.
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!
