Leopard // Sound output Preferences
on May 7, 2008 at 9:30:39 pm

One thing that is really getting on my nerves since upgrading to Leopard is the Sound Output. I'm frequently changing between headphones and the built-in audio output for monitoring audio.

In the days of yore I could just plug in my headphones and turn down the audio on my external speakers. Now I have to go select the headphone output. And when I want to switch back to external, I have to go back to the prefs and select the built-in line out. Sounds fairly trivial, and I guess it is really, but it's still annoying. Is there a way to access the sound preferences more quickly? I read that option+F5 should open the sound prefs, but that doesn't seem to work for me. It would be real nice if I could access the sound prefs from the menu bar, similar to monitor prefs..

Any suggestions?

8core MacPro, 3.0 GHZ, 10GB RAM, OSX 10.5.2
DualCore G5 2.0 GHZ, 2GB RAM, OSX 10.4.11

AE7 on both for now.
