[prMac.com] Skokie, Illinois - Spike Software Inc. has announced the release of Audio Switcher 2.0.3, an important update for its popular menubar applet utility developed exclusively for Mac OS X. Audio Switcher allows you to quickly switch your audio input and output between different audio devices. Originally released in 2007, it supports a wide range of devices such as, Griffin Technology's Powermate and other USB audio devices, Apple's Thunderbolt monitors, AirPlay devices, such as the AirPort Express or Apple TV, along with Firewire devices and, of course, the built-in audio hardware of your Mac desktop or laptop.
Audio Switcher resides in the Status Bar, making it conveniently accessible from any application. Audio Switcher automatically detects when your audio devices are connected or disconnected and you can even set a given device as your default input or output device and Audio Switcher will switch to this device anytime it is connected. Audio Switcher also allows you to set a default volume or gain level for your devices. When switching between your devices, you can set a default volume or gain and when switching to a new device, Audio Switcher can automatically set the volume or gain. Setting Audio Switcher as a login item allows all of these features to work as soon as it launches.
New in this version are a re-configured preferences management system. Improved auto-launch support and a few bug fixes.
Audio Switcher was originally developed to fill a void in the otherwise excellent MacOS X. Earlier versions of the OS did not allow simple swithcing between audio devices. Users had to open the System Preferences and select devices there. Audio Switcher was developed in 2007 to allow users a simpler, more direct way of switching devices; from the menubar. Apple has since made this simpler as well, but Audio Switcher goes a bit further still. by allowing users to select default devices and volume and gain levels. Audio Switcher is continually updated with new features and users are invited to make suggestions they believe will make it an even better product.
