SoundSwitch can also take care of your recording devices. You can set specifics hotkeys as for the playback devices.
SoundSwitch provides five types of notification when a device was changed.
Uses a custom always-on-top frame, useful for in-game usage. This is the recommended default display style.
Uses the balloon tip of Windows. In the case of Windows 7, it's the little balloon that opens next to the systray icon. For Windows 10, it's the notification system that slides from the right corner of the screen.
This notification is a sound played on the switched device. This way when you are switching devices, the new device will 'chime' to tell you it's selected.
The same as a Sound Notification but you can specify the sound which is played.
If you are on Windows 8 or later, you can use this type of Toast Notification. More personalization is possible, by default the notification is silent, but you can set a custom sound for it (mp3 or wav for now).
If you want to return to a silent Toast Notification, open the file selector, and just do Cancel. Doing that will remove the set sound.
