"There’s no easier or faster way to send the Mac’s audio output to Apple TV and AirPlay..." - Mac360 Review

AudioSwitcher is a menu bar that allows you to switch quickly between all available input and output devices.  In addition you can change the volume of any device without having to change your current input / output.

You can quickly change the sample rate or output to multiple devices at the same time.

Using the preferences screen you can choose to ignore certain devices, set a default start-up input or output device as well as it’s volume.

AudioSwitcher supports any device available to the system: AirPlay, USB, HDMI, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth etc.

AudioSwitcher is ideal if you have multiple sound devices attached to your Mac and want to be able to switch between them without having to use System Preferences.

It’s great for a home theatre set-up allowing selection of default devices (and their volumes) on start-up as well as allowing you to quickly route output to AirPlay devices in one click.

Review by Hooded Crow

Exactly what I needed! - I have a very simple need. I have two Thunderbolt displays side-by-side. I wanted to be able to play audio through both displays AND be able to control the volume from the keyboard. AudioSwitcher had me configured and running in less than a minute. As an added benefit I can easily set the volume for each display. This allows me to compensate for the partial deafness in my right ear. I look forward to exploring the abundant options available. Well worth the $0.99!

Unnecessary - This almost ruined a conference call for with prospctive clients because it failed to work with the webinar system I was using. I’ve found out it’s really not even needed. Just put volume control in the menu bar and hold the option key while clicking on it.

Good app, but not good for audio interfaces - Bought this to control volume, as the description says. Unfortunately, this app will not control the volumes of my audio interfaces.

Loses "Line out" on Mac Pro (2013) - After a short while (an hour or two after restarting it) the "Line out" options on my Mac Pro 2013 just disappears from all settings. If I quit and start the app again, it reappears. Very frustrating. This is STILL happening on 10.11.6.

Doesn’t work properly - Keyboard shortcuts conflict with built-in system defaults and can’t be changed.

Version 2.24.943
Review by Komradebob

Does not allow volume control for multi-output devices - Bought this to be able to control the volume of either the aggregated multi-output device or even each individual output. No dice. The audio slider for the line-out or digital out lines chops the audio off for a few ms, then brings it back up at the same volume. I’m sure it does something well, but it doesn’t ‘allow you to change the volume of any device without having to change your input/output’, and nothing I need to do.
