AuctionMac software has released VolumeKnob 1.01. VolumeKnob allows the Mac's system volume to be controlled via keyboard commands, rather than having to go to the systems sound volume controls. Keyboard based sound controls are common on many laptops, and having similar desktop functionality could prove useful. According to AuctionMac:
AuctionMac Software is proud to release VolumeKnob v1.01! VolumeKnob is a Macintosh utility that allows you to easily raise and lower your system sound volume directly from the keyboard. With powerful options and more precise settings, VolumeKnob will replace your volume control strip. VolumeKnob is perfect for music lovers, headphone users, sound masters, MP3 users, or anyone that frequently needs to change their system volume quickly and precisely.
VolumeKnob offers these killer features:
- Set system volume directly from the keyboard from within any application!
- Use VolumeKnob Control to set your own personal preferences!
- Multiple, easy to remember key combos for up, down, min, and max settings!
- Disable or enable the system beep that you normally hear when switching the volume settings!
- Set your volume more precisely... Set your own volume shift intervals on the Mac 0-255 scale.
- Automatically set sound volume to minimum or maximum with one key combo!
- Don't interrupt your music with an annoying beep... Turn system alert 'beep' off while switching!
VolumeKnob is available as shareware for US$8.99. You can find more information at the AuctionMac web site.
