I often use my phone to listen to the bible and listen to other things. But i really want to be able to turn on some background music with low volume and turn up the voices of my bible app.

Is there any app put there that could allow me to do better mixing?

I am looking to solve a similar problem.. I often use google navigation and google play music at the same time while driving; i don't like the music extremely loud, but if i set the music at a reasonable volume, I often cannot hear the navigation voice prompts clearly.

Will the above app let me turn up just the navigation voice prompts without affecting the music that is playing in the background at the same time? I think that both are outputed on the media audio channel, so if the app is just changing the volume at the level of the media channel it probably wont work.

Any ideas / experience is appreciated..

Thanks!

App volume can manage only the media stream, actually is not possible to separate per app streams with app volume app ... :(

Bermuda Triangle.. HELP!
It'd be awesome if some developer could manage to add the app's icon and volume slider to the default android volume bar upon expanding it..

Here's what worked for me.
VLC media player has an equalizer that allows you to lower the volume of a song. Play songs on that at a lower volume and then find another application that allows you to run a separate media track to play audio tapes at a higher volume (my Lyrics Mania app works for this).

I just downloaded an app that worked:
App Volume Manager (for Android)

It is a relatively new app. You set the start up volume for the different apps. I just started using it. There are two issues with using this app:
1. I think it is a 21 day trial
2. I havn't been able to change volume realtime using the app.
For me it works because I just set the start of volume to what I am looking for. It is made to set the start volume not the real time volume.

non of this propositions work for me, but i know it is possible because when i start soundcloud and after flytube then soundcloud volume is decreased over the flytube.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I am looking for the same thing. App Volume Control does not work for what the OP was asking for. What we want is something that will adjust volume settings per app under one main setting ie; Media, Ringtone, System etc. Example. I'm playing a game that requires sound on for certain things but also want to listen to Spotify while I play. Both use the Media setting. Is there an app that will adjust boths volume to ones desired levels. App Volume Control does not do this and even states it's not possible.

Dont think it can be done on android as of yet.
It all gets played through "media".
Example playing a podcast in background while playing a game, and you want the game volume lower.
On pc's one way around this is virtual cables and virtual mixers, so if someone was able to funnel each apps audio virtually (with ability to set each individually with a slider) before it gets sent to the "media" sound slider would be a great idea.

Having download Poweramp, because it allows you to play sound simultaneously with other music player, lower the sound of what you need to play using the equalizer function. That way, you have the main music player, playing what you want on a high sound and power amp playing music on a low sound.

I m shocked there is still not a solution for non galaxy devices.

in my use case I would also be happy with just muting one specific app while allowing the other to be controlled by the media stream. Anyone know if this is possible?

I'm looking for this too in other forum and got the answer that at this time Sound Assistant from Samsung just can do this thing.
