properVolume is a little app that sits in your menu bar, providing instant access to various sound settings and preferences—you can pick input and output devices, change volume levels precisely with visual metering, set the volume on inactive devices, &c..
In short, properVOLUME will save you a lot of futzing around in the Sound pane in System Preferences.
It’s available in the Mac App Store and developer pjv has kindly provided a batch of promo codes for One Thing Well readers. Get ‘em while they’re hot:
