I like the new volume mixer in Windows 7, but it lacks balance controls. I know of the master balance control in the device properties, but what I really want is control of stereo balance per application, so I can have one program panned left and the other panned right.

Is there a way to add balance controls to the Windows 7 volume mixer, or is there a third-party application out there that can do this?

IndieVolume should do the job.

IndieVolume is a small utility extending Windows with functionality to allow applications to have totally separate volume, balance and mute audio settings.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. Link only answers don't tell us why we should go with your solution. – Mokubai Oct 8 '11 at 10:19
