Set incredibly precise volume levels using AppleScript

I might also note that holding COMMAND + SHIFT while adjusting the volume will allow more delicate volume control.

Not Command - Shift

Actually, depressing Option - Shift while increasing or decreasing the volume makes changes in 1/3 increments.

On my Snow Leopard MBP, I get 1/4 steps with option+shift for a total of 64 steps across the entire scale.

shift (with or w/o cmd) instead changes the volume silently (i.e., without audio feeback).

option alone brings up the Sound prefpane.

1/4 not 1/3

I forgot that Option-Shift gives 1/4 increment changes in volume, not 1/3 as I said in my previous post.
