Coastal Audio Changer makes switching audio devices in Windows 7 a doddle. Version 2 supports both input and output devices, better hotkey support and a process monitor so audio setups can be assigned to particular programs such as media player software like xbmc. Purchase price is 3 US Dollars – which works out about the price of a half a local pint of beer :-)
You can download the trial here. You’ll need .Net Framework 4 installed from Microsoft. The trial lasts for a few months. Purchase includes the original CAC too. Below is a short video demonstrating how to set up Coastal Audio Changer.
Coastal Audio Changer has been updated to handle non-configurable audio devices, handles up to 7 audio devices, controllable speed of change, hotkey control, multiple languages and one cute icon.
The full version of Coastal Audio Changer is now available at the bargain price of 3 USD. This purchase price includes all future versions – the next version is running a little late but hopefully out very soon.
Hope you like it. The trail version is available for you to try out. The trial period lasts about a month allowing plenty of time for you to fall in love with the little blue speaker. I would advise downloading the trial here rather than the Cnet or Softpedia links. Cnet demands their own copy which they check for nasties. Fair enough but it means I have to send them a new trial version twice a month and sometimes I forget.
If you purchase through paypal please click the link that returns you to the merchant’s store – that will direct you to the download location. I’ll also send you an email with download details as soon as I receive confirmation.
Next release should be very soon. In between outrageously long commutes I’m working on the final bits.
Coastal Audio Changer makes switching audio devices in Windows 7 a breeze.
It’s been designed for people that have two or more audio devices on their Windows 7 machine such a set of speakers and a USB headset. To change between them you normally have to right click the volume icon in the system tray and load up the sound section of control panel, select the new output device, hit default and hit ok. Yuck! That takes ages. Coastal Audio Changer will sit in the system tray as nice shiny blue icon and with a couple of clicks flick between devices. And to be honest it’s taken longer to describe what it does than to show it. So watch the video and download the trial. You will need the .Net Framework installed from Mircosoft. Trial lasts for a couple of months and I’ll post the full version here asap.
