Sound Indicator by BassUltra Sound Indicator by BassUltra
A place for you to quickly change the volume of all your apps, and what you're currently playing.

EDIT 16/8/13:
Redone.

Shouldn't the "now playing"-view and controls be on top? It's the only item in there that is dynamic and it feels weird that it pops up in the middle of the speaker volume and microphone volume controls. If music is currently playing you are also most likely to access these controls if you are opening the indicator menu so it makes sense to have it on top instead of on the bottom of the list.

To me it made sense to put any notification about sound playing underneath the volume control.

I'm still missing the functionality of padevchooser / pasystray. Why can't the tray contain a list of pulseaudio servers / sinks to choose from (in case the list is >1 device)?

You can easy enable sharing of your audio via system preferences, but switching the output is way more common and should be accessible without going through settings dialogs...

I could live without per-app loudness settings if I could switch to my home audio system with 2 clicks....

do not like control buttons because they are not centered

They are centered to the volume sliders, not the menu.

It looks ok. But I have feeling that something is wrong here... Maybe make an interaktive loudspeaker icon and use it instead speaker off and speaker full icons

Finally! A sound indicator that actually lets you control your sound fully. As in, the individual sound of your applications. I would love to see this make reality.

I love the concepts, really. I like so much the way elementary is getting. However, there's something I don't get. I heard DanRabbit saying that sound applications like Beatbox were not going to have an independent volume control, due to the minimalysm and cleanliness that elementaryOS always tries to improve.

I mean, is that still planned? 'cause in this mockup there's a system sound icon, and that has confused me.

Thanks for everything :) believe me when I say I really like your mockups ;)

Dan was saying no volume control within the application, that is, no volume control inside beatbox, but instead have all of them in the same place. Like the sound indicator.

I see. Then everything makes sense. I hadn't understood properly what Dan said. Thank you :)

Just two things I noticed, the playback controls aren't centered, is that on purpose? And you have two volume icons for every application and it seems a bit off. I guess the left one is used to mute the application but why not just make the right one clickable and get the same behaviour but with a simpler less confusing implementation?

Also the playback controls are centered to the volume slider, not the width of the whole menu.

Well ubuntu's also has 2 volume icons, and its used to signify what direction to make the volume louder/quieter. And both are toggle buttons for quickly toggling the volume max/mute.

Ok, I understand the reasoning behind that. But if we were to rethink this concept, how often do you use the system volume at max? On laptops that's usually far to loud for me and it would either hurt my ears or blow my laptops speakers. Isn't it better to have an animated speaker icon which goes gradually from one "soundwave" to three "soundwaves" which would also indicate whether the volume has been increased or decreased, and when clicked it could toggle between muted and previous setting. What are your thoughts regarding that implementation? If it isn't clear enough it could play a "ping" sound with the current volume setting as Windows 7 does when you adjust the slider. Please let me hear your thoughts :) I love your indicator designs btw, They look great!

My system volume is always at max, I usually adjust the volume from my speakers. xD

Not for Luna, no. I think we're nearing feature freeze or something.
