Sometimes we like to go loud. Take for instance the fact that I have my computer set up to automatically wake me up in the morning with a song from my playlist. But hitting the decibels isn’t always a good idea if you have aurally sensitive neighbors. Volume Concierge helps you earn brownie points with your local friends by automatically setting your volume to different levels according to the time of day.
Volume Concierge is a 1.6 MB free download and it works on Windows 7/Vista/XP. All it needs to start controlling the desktop volume is a free activation via email. You can uncheck the box that allows the developer to send you emails and other info. Just a check against potential spamming.
Configuring Volume Concierge is super simple as can be seen from the screenshot below. The free volume control software uses rules to determine the volume level at certain times of the day.
Rules can be toggled on or off. Volume Concierge auto-runs on your desktop at the precise moment, and it automatically reverts the volume from the current to the one that you have set up with the slider.
Volume Concierge starts up with Windows, so I couldn’t get it to mute the startup sound. You can of course, set it off manually. Apart from this minor shortcoming, Volume Concierge is a very simple way to tweak your computer’s volume at designated times.
Install, use, and let us know if the free software helps you with Volume Control and keep peace in the neighborhood.
