Can anyone help explain why this script doesn't yield the expected result of decreasing Spotify's volume by units of 10? When I run it for iTunes, iTunes will decrease from say 100 to 90 to 80. Any ideas why it doesn't work the same with Spotify, and how I could correct it?

While we're at it, is there a better way I could rewrite this subroutine?

Thanks for the help!

Code:

tell application "Spotify"
set currentVolume to sound volume
end tell

on fadeOut(currentVolume, desiredVolume, delayTime)
tell application "Spotify"
set currentVolume to sound volume
repeat while currentVolume is greater than desiredVolume
set sound volume to currentVolume - 10
set currentVolume to sound volume
delay delayTime
end repeat
end tell

end fadeOut

fadeOut(currentVolume, 30, 10)


Response:
tell application "Spotify"
get sound volume
--> 100
get sound volume
--> 100
set sound volume to 90
get sound volume
--> 89
set sound volume to 79
get sound volume
--> 78
set sound volume to 68
get sound volume
--> 67
set sound volume to 57
get sound volume
--> 56
set sound volume to 46
get sound volume
--> 45
