Adjust Volume Apps Individually in Windows 10 with EarTrumpet

EarTrumpet

The Volume Mixer on Windows 10 seemingly just like the previous version on Windows 7 and Windows 8 without any meaningful upgrade. This miserable fact led developers to fill the gap.

Dubbed as EarTrumpet, this app is developed by former Microsoft engineer Dave Amenta, Microsoft MVP Rafael Rivera, and developer David Golden. It basically expands new features like the ability to control volume individually, switching default audio devices, and changing playback devices between apps.

If you using Windows 10 and looking for a better audio management, installing EarTrumpet absolutely will help you a lot!

When this article updated (2020), the program still actively developed on GitHub, adding more features, and fixing some issues.

Despite its attractive features, EarTrumpet is not made by Microsoft, hence, none of Windows 10 users will get this program unless installing it manually through the Microsoft Store. If three talented developers can build this app, Microsoft with thousands of software developer should able to do more.

And let’s hope Microsoft will acquire the program and make it as the official Volume Mixer for Windows 10 🤞
