Easy Arduino Volume Mixer For Your Pc

About the project

The idea is to have complete volume control at your finger tips and bypass the unintuitive windows volume mixer. It’s very simple to do and is limited only, by the amount of Arduino inputs. Take control over your master, Spotify, chrome, or any other program/game you’d like. As to where you place it that’s up to you.
