Comment: Global Application Switch is too hidden

Post by zaobab »

I've been using Loud Typer for a long while and consider it essential. (Thank you also for helping me restore the purchase via the App Store)

One day I found myself--every time I had a moment--fiddling with Loud Typer because it had stopped making any sounds. Even trying to test other sounds through the Sound Themes tab, I didn't hear anything. I might try to uninstall the app and then reinstall the app, nothing.

I was typing to open a issue ticket and then I realized that on the Misc tab is the Global Application Switch. I finally saw that at some point I had selected the "Application is: Off" radio button.

It felt like Global Sound Theme, Sound Volume, and the Global Application Switch really needed to be on another tab, perhaps labeled "Main." I find myself switching between Sound Themes and Applications because switching a keyboard sound also means I need to fine tune the max volume.

I second the feature request to remember Max volume set with output device. For me the only time I need to go and bring the volume way down is when I play the sound via external speakers-- the keyboard sounds always feels way louder compared to the music playing, when compared to the balance set via built-in speakers or headphones.

Thank you so much for this lifesaver app. My wrist strain is much less because of it.
