Volume control


Recommended Posts

Dear members

 

just a simple and stupid question

 

If you are feeding your DAC/amplifier via an asynchronous USB connection from a mac computer are you then supposed to be able to control the volume of your system "directly" from the volume control on you computer keyboard?

 

 

Sincerely

Depends on the driver and player. On windows using ASIO some drivers ignore the system volume, some consider it. But DirectSound and WASAPI go through the mixer and system volume. When doing so, then the volume controls on the keyboard work.

What Dac/Amp are you using? For example, the Dragonfly (and others) have a hardware volume control that can be changed via USB by the system sound volume (and thus from the keyboard). And I suspect, since you're using a Mac, you aren't installing any drivers for the hardware, right?
