    Hey folks,

    I'm wondering if there is a way to reduce the minimum sound volume on osx. I have the feeling that the gap from mute (zero volume, not the "mute" key) to the first level is huge, like 0-25%, and then the 15 others increase only gradually, and I'd like to sorta "recalibrate" this...

    If necessery, here are my machine's details :

    MacBook Pro 15'' (Unibody)
    Leopard up-to-date

    Thanks !

    I don't know of a way to do it so it affects the hotkeys, but if you "show sound in menubar" you can use the slider and "fine-tune" the volume more.

    Hold down [Shift] + [option] while adjusting the volume with the keyboard. You will get four more degrees of sensitivity within each step.
