Quiet Audio Fade or Quiet AF is a free open source system tray application for Linux and Windows that allows you to gradually turn down your computer system over time to find the quietest working volume level. It’s a really great concept and will probably save our hearing. When you turn up the computer volume, the app disables itself and corrects the volume to the correct level. It is written in Go and is released under the GNU General Public License v3.0.
You can check the current volume in Quiet AF and manually enable or disable Quiet AF through the system tray. It also changes the time of the speed interval each time the volume decreases.
