Okay , some of you might be using my modified VoodooHDA to be able to control volume. This works fine but it has it's own disadvantages.

Recently I found a new workaround for that.

  • Install VoodooHDA (if it is already installed skip this step)
  • If your volume control works turn it up to maximum , if it doesn't - leave it
  • Install Soundflower (http://cycling74.com...ts/soundflower/)
  • Go into System Preferences > Sound > Output and change your output to Soundflower (2ch)
  • Launch soundflower , click on the menu bar icon and change the 2ch device to "Headphones / Speaker"
It fixes Mute/Unmute and Volume control completely

Does not work for me. I followed your steps and when I choose Soundflower (2ch) as the output device in Sys Prefs I get the following message: The selected device has no output controls, and I lose sound completely...

It should say that , but you should be able to hear sound if you configured everything correctly.

Did you forget to chose "Speaker / Headphones" in the Soundflower menu?
Is Soundflowerbed running?

I have no Speaker/Headphone option. These are the output options that I'm getting with the latest VoodooHDA kext:

Speaker (FIXED) - The one I select in Soundflower
SPDIF-Out
Digital-Out

And still I get no sound when I choose Soundflower 2h as my output device.

Are you sure you're using the latest version of VoodooHDA?
What is your default output device?

My default output device (and the only one that actually outputs sound) is Speaker (FIXED). I am using the latest VoodooHDA from the ProjectOSX forum... Is there a newer one?

Which version are you using? The version you provided in your other volume fix thread is on 32 bit. I tried the 64 bit version provided in one of the comments in that thread but I lost sound completely when I used it...

Nice. It's not the greatest solution, but it's a solution none the less. Got it working on SL 10.6.3.

Now, is there a way to start the Soundflowerbed app as hidden? (so the icon does not appear in the taskbar?)
I've tried using automater to have it load and hide it, but I get errors.

Any help is appreciated! :P

Not working for me either. I have the same issues as described above: only Speaker as output and when I select SoundFlower 2ch for the second option, I have no sound.
I'm on 10.5.7...
Perhaps with an update to 10.5.8 it might work ?
------
Update:
Sorry, it is working. I had to select also the option 'Speaker' in the drop down menu as in Max5's picture
Great job !!

Works, but it stops increasing volume around the halfway mark. The bars continue to go up, but volume doesn't get any louder on a Latitude E4310.

Has anyone tried using Boom? http://www.globaldelight.com/boom - Wonder if it will work for us?
