Independent app volume control on keyboards!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ever wanted that nice volume wheel on your brand new k70 to only control the volume of a certain application? 

Well you found the right post! alo it will work with any keyboard that has volume buttons/wheels. its not k70 exclusive but i wish it was built into the software.

Only thing i don't like about it is that it will open the volume mixer when you first change volume. As long as you don't close it out or minimize it the mixer wont pop up and interrupt you any longer

btw this is not my original work. I just adapted it to work better. Here is where i most of the source : http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/56889-application-specific-sound-control-for-windows-7-rev-101/

Script: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jnvv2omebcmu7u1/VolumeControls.ahk?dl=0

Compiled version if you don't want to install AHK : https://www.dropbox.com/s/kjwr4hzbdkxkdhz/VolumeControls.exe?dl=0

To have it run at startup in Windows8.1 put script/compiled version in folder shown here : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2806079

To change the application it changes the volume of find and replace all "Spotify Free" with the name it shows up as in the volume mixer. For example foobar would be foobar2000.

To change how fast it changes volume find "{Up 2}" and "{Down 2}" then replace the number with how fast you want it to change volume. Higher number=faster but less precise changes.
