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.

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....

This is a great idea!

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 ;)
