Advanced, customizable volume control with skinnable onscreen display
The software comes with a nice interface that can only be seen when the sound levels are changed. You can choose one of the three OSD (On Screen Display) skins and adjust the place where it displays.
The default audio device can be assigned, while the channel balance can be adjusted. Also, the mouse buttons can be set to complete various actions.
If you click on the system tray icon you can open the standard sound regulator, the playback devices, mute on/off, display program options, the volume mixer and the system regulator. The actions recognized by the software are one or two left-button clicks and one middle button click.
Furthermore, you can choose one of the many options that enable you to control the sound levels.
Since the sound volume can be adjusted by rotating your mouse wheel, active zones on your screen can be activated to trigger these actions. You can opt for the icon in the notification area, the taskbar, tray, the window caption, desktop, OSD window or anywhere on the screen.
Furthermore, you can also adjust the volume by moving the mouse along the screen edge. In order to do this, the option needs to be activated from the app’s settings menu.
Additional keyboard shortcuts can be assigned. Also, the multimedia buttons on your keyboard blend in with the other options provided by this software.
Volume2 can also act as a scheduler. The software can be programmed to adjust the volume, run an app, fiddle with the brightness and balance or display a message.
All in all, Volume2 a great utility that can enhance your regular sound control experience. The software’s menus are intuitive and adjusting everything to your own needs is a job that doesn’t require extensive experience with similar apps.
