I haven't found anything in the forum regarding sound control mods. Has anyone performed any mods to enable sound control? I am considering either keystroke increase, decrease and mute or adding a small external device to the keyboard. This would consist of preferably something built in or attached to the keyboard.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or existing ideas.

Other users have more commonly remapped the keystrokes in their OS/software rather than doing a hard hack. One popular Windows program that has been mentioned here before is KeyTweak. Good luck!

Old thread but thought I'd chime in here. I use a program called Volume Tray. Works great and has a VERY small footprint, it's like a 350KB download.

Hey all,
I thought I would 'chime' in on this as we're on the subject. I recently purchased two Deck 82 boards for the two Macs in my house and wanted the same functionality as a normal Mac keyboard (volume up/down/mute/eject and command keys). I read the previous posts regarding DoubleCommand and KeyboardRemap4Macbook... while both were helpful, it left me wanting more (or less; buggy software, still in beta, conflicts with other USB software, etc). Until recently I was using the two mentioned above along with Steer Mouse and Logitech Control Center... 4 separate applications to control my keyboard, two mice and gamepad.

That's when I found Controller Mate http://www.orderedbytes.com/controllermate/
Now I ONLY use it, and the other 4 applications are history.

While Controller Mate is hard to put into words, in a nutshell... it does EVERYTHING !
I made a brief video below to give you all a glimpse of what I can now do with my Deck 82.

First I remapped some keys I will never use for the built in functionality and gave those Mac specific commands (and using the 'Danger of Death' and the 'Lightning Bolt' keycaps for Volume Up/Down looks neat).
Second, and this is the fun one... I made my "Print Screen" key do the command "Hide Others" from within any application.
Confused yet? Just check out the video.
Enjoy

Nice video! Didn't know about that program, will have to give it a spin on my Mac.

Also for those of you who can't open the mp4 files, I suggest the combo of Quicktime + xvid codec on Windows (codec is free):
