Is there any way to mute an individual application in OSX Snow Leopard for free?

Jernara Bussey February 15, 2012

I like the game “World of Goo”, but there are no built in volume controls. Is there any way I can control the application volume another way? I like to listen to music while I play so muting the whole computer isn’t helpful.

    Hello Jernara,

    Unfortunately, you can't. The game does not have the option of turning off the music/soundfx.

    So you should go with changing PC's volume controls until your preferable level of sound.

    I hope it helped..

      That's actually what I'm asking how to do; in Windows you can open the volume mixer and adjust the volume of individual programs but I need something like that for OSX so I can circumvent the lack of in-game volume controls without changing the volume for the whole computer.

    Hello, have you checked the settings for your game?  Most games have the option of turning sound off.  Check in the settings under sound.  It is usually found with the description sound on.

      The game genuinely doesn't have any sound or video controls. It's been a complaint with the game for years but the developers just never bothered to do anything about it.

    Mute A Single Application
    'Audio Hijack Pro'

    Hear can control the volume and quality of each application independently. You can control enable and disable each effect independently

      Thanks for the suggestions (which look promising) but I'm searching for free solutions to this issue.

        any luck to solve the volume individually?

          Unfortunately, the only ways to do this are with paid applications like the ones you suggested. :-(
