Rogue Amoeba - Under the Microscope » Blog Archive » Mac Sound Sorcery
It looks like Rogue Amoeba might be developing an app to control the volume level per app. And related to that—perhaps this could be another good spot for signing up for a newsletter once you set up that newsletter-reader app?

keyboard - macOS Sierra - Change default Volume Up/Down keys to Option+Shift+Volume Up/Down? - Ask Different
“I’d like to remap / intercept / override the behaviour of the Volume Up/Down keys to either:

“1. Automatically adjust the volume in 1/4 increments
“A setting, file or script that I could write or modify to set this as default behaviour would be ideal!

“2. Mimic Option(Alt)+Shift+Volume Up/Down being pressed
“I press one key (Volume Up/Down), but the system sees that I’ve pressed the three-key combo!”

macos - Lowest volume is still too loud—how can I make it even lower? - Ask Different
“RobMathers already covered many ways [to adjust the volume on macOS in smaller increments]. For terminal geeks, here is another way:

“You can use the command line to set exact levels:

$ osascript -e "set Volume 0" # for mute
$ osascript -e "set Volume 7" # for maximum volume

Schiit Audio, Headphone amps and DACs made in USA.
(This probably isn’t quite what you need, but it’s kinda neat, though, if you should mainly need a volume knob.)
“Fulla 2 is a complete DAC/Amp in a single tiny case. Plug Fulla 2 into virtually any USB port, connect your headphones and/or powered monitors, and you’re set for great music. But that’s only the start. 

“• Use it as an amp. Connect your phone (or any other analog source) to the convenient front jack. 
“• Use it as a preamp. Connect to powered monitors or speaker amps using the variable outputs on the back.
“• Use it as a DAC. Connect to an external preamp or processor with the fixed 2V line outs on the back, or use the variable outputs for convenient volume control as well. 
“• Use it with phones, tablets, or computers with low-powered USB ports. We’ve included a second USB port for power input. Plug in your phone charger (or any other 5V DC source with micro-USB output) and Fulla 2 tells your source it doesn’t need any power.”

Why is optical digital audio locked at full on a Mac? - mini osx mediacenter | Ask MetaFilter
"If you mess with the outbound volume at all, it changes the bitstream. If Apple isn't differntiating between 'computer sound' and 'DVD sound', as Windows does, it would damage digitally-compressed bitstreams, like Dolby Digital. It would turn them into a long hiss. Apple is probably making sure the music is truly lossless to your receiver, which normally would control the volume. However, it's possible that you're getting the worst of both worlds... it may be resampling up to 48Khz (very common on Intel-based hardware) and then refusing to do volume control on top of that."

Adjust 'locked' volume levels when using optical audo - Mac OS X Hints
"I found the answer from a link another commenter sent me. The signal is not distorted as long as your gain is done in steps that don't result in rounding errors. So it is possible to adjust volume on a digital signal without creating distortion, just not trivial."

2 Mac Apps to Seperately Control Volume of Applications
"Both apps on this list offer the feature of adjusting volume by app. However, the apps each bring something different to the table, so explore the options and decide for yourself which is best.”

menuBUS
"menuBUS is a lightweight menu bar application designed to capture all system audio, host realtime AudioUnit effects, and pass the processed audio to your choice of output. 

"Until now applying effects to the system audio has involved the use of multiple apps, audio drivers and aggregate devices, and in the case of paid apps that can solve this problem (many of which are fantastic applications) the user is still left with a lot of prep work and time spent managing another apps clutter.”

Among some of its features:
“Give any audio interface native keyboard volume control.” [neat!]

kyleneideck/BackgroundMusic: Background Music, a macOS audio utility: automatically pause your music, set individual apps' volumes and record system audio.
"Background Music can pause your music player app when other audio starts playing and unpause it afterwards. The idea is that when I'm listening to music and pause it to watch a video or something I always forget to unpause it afterwards. So this keeps me from wearing headphones for hours listening to nothing.”

--

"Background Music has a volume slider for each app running on the system. I mostly use this to boost quiet apps above their normal maximum volume.”

--

But:
"Unfortunately, it won't build if you don't have Xcode installed because xcodebuild doesn't work on its own anymore.”

--
Silver lining: This project has a pretty good list of “Related projects” that might also be worth looking into.

macos - Lowest volume is still too loud—how can I make it even lower? - Ask Different
"As well as the ways covered in the other answers, there is another simple way to get a volume lower than one box full.

1. Lower the volume to one box full:
2. Lower the volume to muted by pressing Volume Down (not Mute):
3. Press Mute to un-mute:
3. This gives you a very quiet volume that is between mute and one box full."

iVolume on the Mac App Store
"iVolume effectively repairs the built-in 'Sound Check' function of iTunes. Information about the loudness is stored by iTunes in a tag named iTunNORM inside your songs. This information is used for playing a song a bit louder or softer at playback time whenever Sound Check is turned on. iTunes' loudness analysis is very fast but unfortunately not very accurate so that Sound Check is not satisfying out-of-the-box. That's were iVolume comes into the game: iVolume re-analyzes every song with a professional algorithm that's oriented on the acoustic perception of the human ear and iVolume then permanently replaces the information in the iTunNORM tag of your songs with perfect values."

“• This little app allows you to control the iTunes volume using volume-up and volume-down hotkeys from your keyboard.
• It allows you also to control the same iTunes volume by means of your Apple Remote control.
• This is particularly useful to control the volume of AirPlay devices.”
