AudioSwitcher is a menu bar that allows you to switch quickly between all available input and output devices.  In addition you can change the volume and other properties of each device without having to change your current input / output.

You can quickly change the sample rate or output to multiple devices at the same time.

AudioSwitcher supports any device directly attached to the host system: USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, Thunderbolt and Bluetooth.

It does not support AirPlay or AirPlay 2 devices.

AudioSwitcher is ideal if you have multiple sound devices attached to your Mac and want to be able to switch between them without having to use System Preferences.

Things to be aware of:

- If you have headphones physically plugged in then your internal speakers are disabled for some Apple hardware.
- Apple no longer allows 3rd party apps to see or view AirPlay devices

Works - Can't see why the bad reviews

Does just what you expect - it allows the audio source to be switched/muted/the volume controlled - a lot cheaper option than Rogue Amoeba Soundsource to solve my issue - I can't complain at 99p. It seems to have an awful lot of extra fuctionality to explore as well. Glad I ignored the old 1 star reviews

Great little app

Preferences panel is not that obvious to work out, but other than that works a treat.

Works very well for my needs

Not sure why there are reviews saying it doesn’t work, as it does, and very well. Perhaps they didn’t read the advice above about hardware limitations and what won’t work. But foe me, I use it most days for switching betwen 3 different devices (Headphones socket, Bluetooth headphone and Koomplete Audio 6). HAndy to be able to set the startup device as well. Great app!.
