The OP *might* like Skynergy's HotKeyz, a donationware general-purpose hotkey program that has what I think the OP might mean built in.  HotKeyz's author has posted on DC, but sorry, I can't remember his DC UserID.

Try looking at the screenshot on the HotKeyz Web page!

And I've briefly tried it; feature is there.

Well, if what you mostly want is eye candy, heaven help you.  Don't forget that HotKeyz is a hotkey program; the screenshot on the Web site is just its configuration window.  When you're using it, you'd just use whatever hotkeys you'd assigned, and wouldn't see HotKeyz at all.  You'd just see the row of coloured blocks marching across your screen as Windows increases or decreases the volume.

Some people just prefer a nice looking UI. I know it is just it's config window, but the OSD screen with coloured blocks is very ugly, I've tried it!

I've been trying to do something, I figured 2 things out: The text displayed needs an added shadow, so does the osd indicator (the |||||||||||||'s)

 smiley Just changed the source code of the alpha blended version of GreenOSD above.

Now you can set the transparency of both the text, the shadow and the background.

Nice work skrommel! I have (I'm sorry) 2 feature requests:
  • Change the wave volume while holding control and pressing up/down vol
  • Fade out, I think it looks nice
Great work!
