Review by Future Shock:
There is some serious meat to this volume control (now if I can just find a system wide equalizeer!). I like the edges option even on my large screen for times when I have the mouse near the top of the screen. Mouse wheel could be useful too, though. I also have a RocketDock volume controller for the right side of the screen. It's an efficient set up for me. Looks like this would be perfect for laptop/notebook users. Oh, and it's portable...no installation...
Just one sort of overall concern with audio apps. Testing equalizers, I noticed that audio related program coders don't seem to have learned to merge the functionality of their program into the run time functionality of a PC very well. That concern carries over a bit to this program, but not much. Volume^2 isn't overkill, but there is just a tiny bit of run time over prioritization that can lead to mouse jumps, etc.
Kind of back in the Windows 98 days with audio controls I would say in the overall sense. I think we need something along the lines of AudioX like DirectX does the job for graphics. Developers could create their programs that make use of audio controls with the idea in mind of using the native run time routines of A-X without worrying about stepping on the overall functionality of the PC if there were such a thing.
As it is, VolumeÂ² is sort of like any stand alone improvement to a natively Windows function that is audio related begins to step on overall functionality.
Looking forward to the day when audio related program coders get it that with a PC, there are hard and fast no nos. Got to have control of the mouse at all times. Again, no serious worries here. VolumeÂ² is good, but I would like to see some follow up and improvement on this one.
Volume2 is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from windows tweaking software without restrictions. Volume2 18.104.22.1684 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
Compatibility with this volume customizer software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from irzxya.
We have tested Volume2 22.214.171.1244 against malware with several different programs. We certify that this program is clean of viruses, malware and trojans. [Read more]
