Controlling a Mac's main out level from Max

Feb 16 2009 | 9:47 pm

Hi, I haven’t seen this topic on old archives so I’m sorry if this is an obvious kindof stuff for Max users, but i was just wondering whether it was possible to control a Mac’s main output level from within Max? (Just as it happens to be in Audacity)
Thx for any tip – Z.

Thank you David: just all I need. And great thanks to Masayuki Akamatsu, who’s been very helpul for any kind of controls like this one. Cheers, Zoe.

Or you can use a trick with SoundFlower, as explained in this thread:

You could also use the [shell] external to send applescript commands. "osascript -e ‘output volume of (get volume settings)'" will report the current volume from [shell]’s first outlet and "osascript -e ‘set volume output volume $1′" will set the volume to which ever value you specify. The scale is from 0 to 100.
