This gives you more control over which of your counterparties you want to hear at a given time.
When hovering the mouse over any of your buttons, you will see a scroll bar appear on the right side of the button, showing you the existing volume setting. You can adjust the volume by using the scroll wheel or by clicking and dragging the slider.
If you mute your counterparty by reducing their volume below an audible level, a red indicator will display on the button.
Note: If using a button board, your volume may also be adjusted via the volume knobs on the board.
