So first of all I have to say again: Thank you for this amazing software!
I want to propose a feature or rather an option though:
When my PC locks after inactivity, FxSound automatically switches to the built-in device (UXGA-100-C (NVIDIA High Definition Audio)) instead of keeping my bluetooth headphones active.
Which is why a “Preferred device” option would be amazing. e.g.: “Use this device whenever available”.
The only issue I can see with this is that the option “switch to newly connected device” could conflict with my proposed option. So I guess they can’t be enabled at the same time (which would be fine in my opinion)
Thanks for the suggestion; we’ve had multiple threads on this issue already, see below. @bvijay: Please note, once again a user is experiencing the known issue with sleep mode, suggesting the addition of a Preferred Device option to future versions (“Use this device whenever available”) as a solution; see opening post.
Goodday @james & @bvijay,
Since listening to your userbase tends to produce great results (see e.g. the video “The Insane Story Of Instagram” by James Jani on YouTube below), I figured this was worth noting:
User @rasitensar is not only experiencing the exact same issue, but, what’s more, proposing the exact same solution…
Since the default output device requirement is coming from multiple users, I can add an option to address this. I will think of a way to make this option complement the existing option for automatic output switching.
I see this option. Add a list of previously connected devices in the settings with position adjustment by dragging and/or buttons. Next to it is a cross/trash button for disconnected devices/without recording detection in the system.
This is a slightly more advanced function that requires reworking the program logic and mastering it on the user’s side. But it would allow not just switching to the active device, but “poll” devices by priority.
I would find it so useful honestly! My computer usually sends 2 audio outputs or more to two different devices, i regularly disconnect and reconnect Bluetooth speakers and headsets and each time i have to re-tweak my settings manually.
Just a simple list of known output devices, with a priority value associated to each, and by default using the highest priority connected for FXSound output. It might be a good idea to even allow to associate a device to a sound profile!
