Hello there,

I'm very new here and have already started using vMix.I have been looking for a solution to assign a key/keys to increase or decrease volume. I tried various things but all I could manage was mute or unmute function, which isn't something that I'm after.

If that's impossible using shortcuts on keyboard, I wonder if connecting to any other equipment, i.e. xkeys would do the trick?

Thanks in advance,
Les

Hi Les

the best way to control volume is to use faders or rotating buttons on a midi controller or joysticks.

Check http://www.vmix.com/help19/KeyboardShortcuts.html

Hope this helps

@ wczorajdzonson

Using the "SetVolume" function, you can assign a specific Value in percentage (i.e. 50% or 75% etc.) but there is no systematic lowering and/or raising function, just a direct move to that percentage value.

As Ice mentioned, you can use "SetVolume" for a specific input or "SetMasterVolume" for the Master. You can change the volume incrementally by using "-=X" or "+=X" as the values (without the quotes, and "X" being the amount on a 0 - 100 scale to change the volume by). For instance, pressing a key 10 times with the value as "-=10" will take the volume from 100% to 0.

@DYosua:
Can you please show me how to assign this to one key?

I have attached an example for two keys - one to decrease the Master's volume, and the other which increases it.

Strangely, this works fine with keyboard shortcuts, but not as a function in a script. I mean the volume down (-=5) works in a function, but volume up (+=5) does not...
