Apple Music for Mac provides a sound check feature that automatically adjusts the playback volume of all your songs to the same level. The sound check feature makes the volume more consistent as you play through a variety of songs, meaning that the music will automatically be adjusted so it won’t play too loud or soft. This is a useful feature for people who are tired of adjusting the volume every time a new song starts playing.
