Publisher's Description

Support to control Winamp with a series of hot keys and an On Screen Display is also included.

A really cool utility, which is less prone to conflict than the other utility of the same genre, NirSoft Volumouse. (I do wish that Sound Control had mouse wheel support though...)

Sound Control also has a much more configurable and better-designed on-screen display (OSD) than does Volumouse.

I recommend using Sound Control's high-priority option. Doing so will let you easily control the volume, even if some other application is hogging the CPU. Sound Control (SC.EXE) won't use much CPU, even at high priority, so there's no real performance hit.

I love this utility, even though I use it only to adjust my master volume. Being able to change or mute the volume with a simple key combo, and having the on-screen display, is pretty neat. The OSD sometimes causes whatever is behind it to be a bit corrupted once it disappears, but that could be a video driver issue, I guess.

I've been using this program pretty much for over a year (been reccomending it to people) as to disprove the 1.90 has been out for ages. look at the version. 1.90a (the little A) he's fixed a few bugs, and this sofware shouldn't be freeware for what it does.

I also think that's a great program. With my sound card directly linked to my loudspeakers (whithout amplifiers), hot keys are very usefull.

Just 1 comment to Beta News : the 1.90 release is available since march !!

I've waiting so long for this program !!
My soundcard has a direct link to my speakers, and i've no amplifier. So, i need hotkeys.
This soft can be totally discreet, and can call the Windows Mixer.
I've found no fault

This is one of the coolest freeware programs I've seen in a while. I being a person with a cordless keyboard has a lot of uses for this. Awesome work!!

If you have any suggestions or problems running SCP please contact me on [email protected]

I believe for some people the default download link is slow and may time out so if you have trouble executing the scp.exe make sure you have got the full file.

A mirror 2 link will be added to my home page around the 6/May/00 which downloads direct from my homepages as I have changed ISP and have a lot more bandwidth, this may be quicker than the current mirror 1 link.

Under Windows 2000 Assigned hot key + - * (mute)
It works very well.
I want one option to the author to disable Sound control
Plus temporarilly. I used Number Num + Num - Num *
Of course I can assign one more like ctrl and Num +
but it is nice if I can disable it from right click.
(Note: It is rare that I give such a high mark)

Cannot run the executable

paulmcknight reviewed v1.50 on Mar 13, 2000

v1.15 was 197KB to download, v1.50 is 517KB due to an install system being added due to high number of users not knowing how to unzip a file etc. Saves me a lot of time which can be spent developing instead of answering unzip support questions

It's a nifty program for us people without the programmable keyboards, it's improved alot and more userfriendly than it was (but gone from 120k to just under 600k, perhaps it's the installer) The ability to control the various volumes (Master, wav, midi, cdaudio) via any hotkey setup that you want is a definite bonus.

So go to their homepage... Why would you rate a program you don't know? Because of people like you... [ohhh... well... I should be nice to other people... finish the sentence on your own and don't do it again, all right?]
