Every PC supports several sound cards, or playback devices. In order to switch between the available devices you normally access the system settings and manually select a different option. Enter SoundSwitch! This little tool is a convenient system tweak that allows you to change the playback device using a keyboard shortcut.
Once installed, SoundSwitch runs in the background and only requires a quick configuration to get up and running. You simply right-click on the icon in the system tray to open the settings window. This allows you to configure the hotkey. In addition, you can also deselect the devices which you do not wish to use, in order to be certain that the devices you switch between are the appropriate ones you need (SoundSwitch automatically detects the available sound cards). Supported sound cards include digital audio, headphones or internal playback devices.
Overall, SoundSwitch is a lightweight, simple Windows utility, which allows you to switch between the playback devices that are connected to your system. With SoundSwitch you can easily select the preferred sound card simply by pressing a pre-specified hotkey combination, without going through system settings.
