    On my iPhone I have an app Digidrummer. It's awesome for playing drums. I would love to use this app to play along with my songs on my ipod app but the digi drummer volume is soo quiet I can't hear it when the music is playing.

    The only work around so far was to just try and find acoustic songs I have that are already quiet, and then use the ipods "preset eq settings" and choose the loudness option. It makes it slightly softer but not nearly quiet enough.

    My iPhone is jailbroken by the way. I thought maybe I should use a volume booster app. The thing is I only want the digi drummer app to be louder. Is there an app to choose particular apps to be louder? I'm happy with the volume of the rest of my phone and wouldn't want to chance messing up the speakers as well.

    The other idea I had was to find some way to get a custom eq for the ipod app from Cydia. That way I would be able to lower just the ipod app volume while keeping the other app's volume the same.

    What should I do to make digi drummer as loud as my music so I can play along!?

    Hi QuarterSwede,

    I'm rather upset with your suggestion. I did what you said and paid for the application. I noticed there was no way to customize specific application volumes. The only option they had, was choosing what applications to silent. I even tested out silencing one of my apps and it was unsuccesful.

    There was one option I noticed on making a custom volume for the ipod, but all that did was just set the iphones vol to that setting when the ipod app opened. It adjusted the entire phones volume and not the ipod apps specific one.

    Oh well, I guess I can't use digi drummer with my music then. I just wished you were more familiar with the myvolume app before suggesting it to me, for I have paid for something that didn't help my needs.

    I have tried several in Cydia never found one that worked even for basic applications paid or free let alone like you are talking about. afraid I would suggest headphones or earphone jack out to small speakers or a amp as the best solution! maybe a bluetooth speaker would work for you.
