Hi!I'm searching for a tool to change windows master volume with a hotkey. Foobar can apply gain digitally but I think it might be better to change the master volume, because it changes the soundcard's amplification. At least I think so because when I set it tot high I hear a lot of analog noise. A visual feedback of the volume would be a nice extra.
Most soundcards control volume in the digital domain, the same principle as in software.
I'm guessing my soundcard changes the volume in the analog part because of the static noise what is quite noticeable in high volumes. If it would change the volume in digital then it would be constant.

All other cards I have ever come across used the digital volume control provided by their DA chips. What soundcard do you have?

I have Xonar D1.
This is why I have a (cheap) Logitech multimedia keyboard.Other usefull option is to mouse-click the speaker and then scroll the mousewheel (pointer doesn't have to be on volume slider).Edit: Windows 7
What way you want feedback? You can see the slider level when scrolling or one of the 4 systray speaker icon volume levels. Try it yourself, nothing to install.
