    As far as I'm aware you can't. It's an interesting idea though.

    Audio Hijack might allow you to do this.

    I always wished there were separate volume controls for each application. Sometimes I like to listen to my music loud, but have a game (with no volume control) playing it's sound effects low and iChat's BLEEP noise low.

    I always thought that was a cool idea. Have some "application mute" button in the corner of the app to mute sound individually as a core OS piece. It's got to be totally possible. There are apps that let you control audio (as the one linked), but wouldn't it be cooler just to have a standard UI button on the window itself?

    Edit: just saw that you can have detour show up in the menu bar, very interesting. Going to check that out tonight

    Edit2: drat it seems to have issues in 10.4.3 and is no longer supported

    Get an Airport Express and use Airtunes for playing music. Then you can turn the Computer sound all the way down and the music all the way up. Couldn't live without my Airtunes... :D
