Editor's Description
There are the common applications that address common needs in an ordinary manner, and there are the special application that address needs in a special, truly effective manner. Sound Lock is one of these special applications.

Sound Lock is a unique, real time sound loudness level limiting tool provided for free. It has the ability to limit the sound level of your computer according to its current level. It's a quite common problem which many people ecnounter while watching late night movies or tv shows on their PC. The Sound Lock application will help you avoid disturbing the people around you while you watch your movies and shows.

"Sound Lock does what its name says, it will let you limit the sound output level of your playback, and it does this by detecting the loudness of playback and decreases it to the level you set. This way you no longer have to be frustrated by the loud action scenes or soundtrack going through the roof. To achieve this goal effectivly, Sound Lock adjusts the system volume per channel (up to 14 channels), and generates smooth sound output throughout the playback. It actualy turns the volume down for you during the loud scenes and winds it back up after they finish, so you can continue to watch the movie without having to adjust the volume manually. The controls provided allow you to easily set the sound output limit by draging the bar to the desired level." (developer's description)

Sound Lock is also really simple and lightweight. It's a friendly tool that really works. Also freeware.
