Description

Easily switch the default audio device, input or output, on any Windows PC (Vista and above)

Using this application you can switch output OR input sound devices at the click of a button, or the press of a key.

I designed this application to be incredibly small and lightweight. There is no bloat, it does exactly what it should, nothing more, nothing less.

Requirements:
- Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit or 64-bit
- .NET 4.0 Client Profile

Have some great ideas for features you want added?
Or maybe you just want to tell me how awesome it is?
You can tweet at me @xenolightning and include #audioswitcher

Updated with a Donate Link. Audio Switcher is developed by me, for free, and will remain free; so why not buy me a beer for my efforts? :-D

NOTE: All old .NET 3.5 version will remain available for download, but there will no support or regular bug fixes for any older version.

    Sweet and Easy... just like me :). There's one thing I would like to see added though and that is 'auto-switching', i.e. where I start a game and Audio Switcher will direct output to the headphones only, and when I close the game it should switch back to the speaker. I know, it may make the program a lil bit bigger, but still..... :) Cheers, Baile

    Does exactly what you need it to, clean, simple, out of the way.

    Awesome tool. I suggest to add the ability to rename a device (f.e. with my DELL Latitude, I have the same device name for output to internal speakers and to external ones when docked to the docking station, it's a nightmare to select the right one).

    This utility is very useful! I will donate, but how much beer for the C# source? ;-) Suggestions, some already mentioned: (1) Same hotkey to cycle a group of devices (like the "quick switch" feature) (2) Allow a single hotkey to change both a playback and a recording device (3) Configurable system tray icons that reflect current devices, especially the recording device. Regarding other reviews: The 1-star rating from yzx333 isn't fair because (s)he is using XP, a good old O/S, but not advertised as supported. Does it deserve 1 star because it won't work on my Commodore 64? :D And an uninstall isn't neccesary since the app isn't "installed" in the traditional sense, except for the registry change when "start when Windows starts" is selected. But you don't need an uninstall to uncheck this, or to delete the two files (EXE & INI). The "portable" design is perfect as far as I'm concerned! Well done!
