Audio Switcher is a 100% free, and Open Source application for Windows® Vista, 7, and 8.
Audio Switcher makes switching between sound devices trivial. No longer do you have to go into Control Panel or the Windows® Sound options, instead there is an easy to access icon, or even hotkeys.
The beautiful part of Audio Switcher is it's simplicity. It doesn't try to do too much, it does exactly what is needed; nothing more, nothing less.
Audio Switcher is developed by @xenolightning, entirely in my spare time. Continued development is spurred on by the users, if you have any feedback, feel free to contact me.
Audio Switcher is available free of charge from the following websites.
Ensure that you are always using the safest, and most up to date version by downloading only from these verified sources.
Version 2 is currently in active development. Check out the new features below.
Want to create your own application that controls audio devices? The Audio Switcher Api is available as a package on Nuget.
The Api simplifies interacting with Windows® by using an AudioController to perform the low level functions and memory management. The Api is heavily tested and used by both Audio Switcher v1, and v2.0.
