    Recently got a new Bluetooth-enabled speaker system, which can get pretty loud.
    While this can be highly entertaining, it also has its downsides.
    The standard 16-step volume increments are too big a difference at low volumes.

    I now find myself adjusting system volume in 1/4 increments using by using the Alt+Shift+Volume shortkey.

    However, I would like a solution where I can have OS X change system volume in quarter increments by default. (So, press 'volume up' would result in +0.25 instead of +1)

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance

    I would assume there is a way to do it, but it would require some tweaking.:)

    I looked around and it seems like that shortcut you mentioned is the only way.:(

    You can also use KeyRemap4MacBook to remap F11 and F12 to ⌥⇧F11 and ⌥⇧F12:

    Code:
    <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_DOWN, ModifierFlag::NONE, KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_DOWN, ModifierFlag::OPTION_L | ModifierFlag::SHIFT_L</autogen>
    <autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_UP, ModifierFlag::NONE, KeyCode::VK_CONSUMERKEY_VOLUME_UP, ModifierFlag::OPTION_L | ModifierFlag::SHIFT_L</autogen>[CODE.
