Fast Access to System Devices

Get fast access to all the settings for your Mac's Output, Input, and Sound Effects audio devices right from your menu bar.

Per-Application Audio Controls

Per-app controls let you change the volume of any app relative to others, and send individual apps to different audio outputs.

Audio Effects on Any App

Make any audio sound great, with the powerful “Magic Boost” button, renowned 10-band Lagutin equalizer, and advanced Audio Unit support.

Fundamental Features

Per-App Volume Control

Adjust volume levels for each of your applications, all in one place. Make one app louder or softer than others, or even mute it entirely.

Per-App Output Redirection

Control exactly where audio plays. Route music from one app to your best speakers, while everything else is heard via your Mac's built-in output.

Per-App Audio Effects

Use the built-in 10 band equalizer and support for Audio Units to sweeten the sound of individual apps.

System Audio Settings

Quickly adjust volume and input levels, balance, and even sample rate for your system's Output, Input, and Sound Effects devices.

System-Wide Audio Effects

Apply effects to sweeten the sound of all audio on your system, with the built-in 10-band equalizer and support for advanced Audio Unit plugins.

Super Volume Keys

HDMI devices, DisplayPort monitors, and many other audio outputs fail to support the volume keys found on Mac keyboards. SoundSource makes those keys work with any outputs you have.

Menu Bar Access

SoundSource lives right in your menu bar, for fast and easy access to all your essential audio controls.

Global Keyboard Access

Set a keyboard shortcut to pull SoundSource forward, so you can control the app without even clicking the menu bar.

Floating Access

Making frequent adjustments? Pin SoundSource's main window to make it float on your screen for instant access.

Magic Boost & Overdrive

With two different audio effects to help boost audio, you can get fuller sound from even the tiniest speakers.

Dark Mode Support

SoundSource now includes a dark theme, perfect for use with MacOS's new Dark Mode.

Menu Bar Options

Swap out SoundSource's default menu bar icon for a volume indicator to show your current settings. You can also add a level meter, to see your audio as it plays.
