CabVol: control volume with your spinner,trackball,joysticks,button

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I don't know if this has been mentioned here or not. CabVol is software that helps control the wav volume on your pc. Here's how the software developer describes it:

...I threw together a small application which allows you to set a hotkey which, when held down, allows you to control your windows wave output volume using a mouse device (spinner, trackball) and/or keyboard device (joysticks/buttons connected to a keyboard interface such as IPAC or keywiz).  Basically you can set it up to control cabinet volume using only arcade controls.  It only works on NT/2000/XP/Vista and it requires the .NET 2.0 framework which you can download from microsoft.  There are a bunch of apps like this out there, but the ones I've tried are not very cabinet friendly (requires use of the mouse scroll wheel, special 'windows' key, etc).  I hope someone gets some use out of it.

Hope someone finds this helpful! It works great on my cab!

Thanks supagrova! Just installed on my new arcade build with windows 10 and its working great. Saves me from having to install a physical volume knob in my arcade cabinet.

Hey, I have kind of a dumb question.  Is it possible to do the opposite?  I'm on kind of a tight budget and am wondering if it's possible to set up a USB volume knob to be recognized as an arcade spinner controller in RetroPie?

I've researched the same thing a little and from what is out there I don't believe they will do what you want they will only control audio.
