    Is there an app that allows me to select which apps I can hear sound from and which I can not? Maybe focus on one app for sounds? I wonder because, when I want to use garageband for a quick recording then I don't want to have to turn off sounds for things like Adium which have sound alerts

    Yes there is.. However, since Apple rewrote the way some of the sound routing is done in the Core Audio setup, not all apps actually respond to it.
    The plus side is that the developers now give it away for free!
    I still use it on my machine that still runs Panther, just not on the iBook which has Tiger because it doesn't block the apps I need it to anymore.

    Anyway, here is the link>
    Then it's called Detour.

    Down side is it says it's only for versions 10.2 - 10.4.2
