Set Mac Volume to a Specific Percentage with an Alfred Workflow

The Touch Bar on the MacBook is a pain in the ass. I’ve been getting sick of fighting with it to adjust volume and wanted an alternative to using the icon in the Mac OS menu bar. I already had some AppleScript code I use to reset volume to start my work day, so I ran with it to make a simple Alfred Workflow.

I didn’t realize how awesome this workflow would be. I’m using it all the time, even on my other Mac, which has the keyboard volume control buttons.

Volume by Number

When I adjust the volume on my entertainment system I will always stop on a number ending in 0, 2, 5, or 8; never 2. 3, 4, 6, 7, or 9. Even numbers kick more ass, but not enough to make me resist going one more notch from 4 or 6 to get to 5.
