The Volume Controls

In the upper right part of the screen are a collection of sliders and meters, as shown below:

The input sound level is controlled by the slider on the left. This control should be as high as possible without running the VU Meter into the red.

The VU Meter bar in the middle shows the sound level. If the sound level is too high, the meter shows red.

The output sound level is controlled by the slider on the right.

The two sound level sliders do not appear when Intonia is running on Macintosh OSX. To set the input (microphone) volume on a Mac, use the following procedure:

  1. Choose Apple Menu > System Preferences and click Sound.
  2. Click Input.
  3. Select the input device whose volume you want to control.
  4. The input level meter shows you how loud or soft the sound from the selected input device is registering.
  5. Drag the Input Volume slider left or right to lower or raise the input volume.

The output (speaker) volume on a Mac may be controlled by using the speaker icon on the menu bar near the upper right of the screen. If this icon does not appear, use the following procedure:
