Play sounds on the microphone with this app
Soundpad is a media player from Leppsoft, which allows users to play sounds in voice chats. If you are looking for ways to share the audio you hear with others, this multimedia app is worth a shot. The app offers outputs in high quality and works in various games and communication applications. It also comes with helpful features, such as an audio recorder and editor. Soundpad is still in the demo stage, so some issues may be experienced.
What is Soundpad?
Soundpad is not your ordinary media player. It works like a soundboard, wherein you can put audio files together. However, aside from playing it to yourself, you can share it with people you are talking to through voice chats. As noted, the app has a built-in sound recorder, allowing you to record anything you hear. Moreover, it comes with an integrated audio editor that lets you cut recorded sounds quickly.
You can set hotkeys for each audio file you have and play them quickly while on voice chats. The app comes with volume integration, which equalizes the volume. With this, the sounds you play matches the volume-level of your voice. Soundpad works in various voice-related applications, including Teamspeak, Mumble, Skype, and Discord. You can also use it for games with voice chats, such as Dota2, CS: GO, and PUBG.
The app is easy to set up and extends your default recording device—usually your microphone—without needing additional devices. However, it requires a system restart for first-time users. Plus, it needs you to deactivate Windows Audio DRM validation for it to work. It also does not allow you to watch the DRM-protected DVD. Another thing to consider is that the app tends to play loudly, even though you adjust its volume through the equalizer.
Make voice chats more fun
Overall, Soundpad is an app worth trying if you are looking to make your voice chats more fun. The app lets you record your sounds, edit them, and share them with your friends. It works with various apps and games and even supports different audio formats. However, it is still in the demo stage, so there are a lot of limitations and functionality issues that you may encounter when using this app.
