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 audio outputs, and more 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 in your menu bar, for one-click access to all your audio controls. You can also bring it up with a configurable global keyboard shortcut.

Floating Access

Making frequent adjustments? Pin SoundSource's main window, and it will float on your screen for instant access.

Shortcuts Support

On MacOS 12 (Monterey) and up, integrate SoundSource with workflows you run in the Shortcuts app.

Headphone EQ

The new Headphone EQ effect provides the very best sound from thousands of different models of headphones.

Magic Boost 2

The new Magic Boost 2 does even more to provide rich, full sound from even the tiniest speakers.

Menu Bar Meters

Add optional meters for your output device, input device, and/or active applications, so you can see and control audio even more easily.
