How do I adjust the volume for applications captured?

By Sound Siphon FAQs, Uncategorized
  1. Click on the “Preview Volumes” button.
  2. Listen to and adjust the volumes of the applications captured.
  3. When you are done adjusting the volumes click “Save Volumes”.

While you are editing the volumes the audio you hear is the post-mix audio. The volume sliders are enabled and a level meter is shown. If “Mixed Stereo” is enabled you will only see one post-mix level meter.
