Volume app or scalos plugin?

Looking for something that sits on desktop like osx or windows to control master volume.

AmigaOS does not have a master volume. Each application controls its own volume.

If you are talking about WinUAE you can use http://aminet.net/package/misc/emu/uaemixer

Thanks for the reply,

at least maybe it's something for a developer to tackle.

Well, it's not really something a developer *can* tackle, since many programs write to the hardware directly and therefore nothing can go in between to control the volume. Apps using AHI can be controlled, but apps accessing the hardware directly cannot. If there was an app in particular you were thinking of, e.g. Amplifier, a volume control widget of some sort could be easily written to control its volume via ARexx, but that's solely for one application.

Sorry, is there a standalone mixer app that can be used to control the AHI volume?

You can also find an updated version at http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=72973.
However the Tocatta slider doesnt works on AHI, is it by design thomas? (is it working only for the tocatta.library?)
Why you don't update the aminet binary with this new version, thomas? I think it is working good, despite the Tocatta problem which I have, but it is not your fault.

Not a stand-alone one that I know of, but it's available in the AHI prefs so it's at least possible.

I guess the best way is using ARexx like Daedalus mentioned. Of course it works only with programs that support it but a lot of do it. Some scripts should be on Aminet that can be used. Or make your own. Its not so difficult.
