Can I Control the Windows Mixer From SoundCheck?

Yes, you can! This functionality has been available in SoundCheck since the release of SoundCheck 15 and is improved upon in SoundCheck 16.

In SoundCheck 15, Listen introduced a new custom step named Mixer Volume. When inserted into a SoundCheck sequence, this step can communicate directly with the Windows Mixer and can be used to control the Input/Output level of any WDM audio device from a SoundCheck sequence.

The step can be found in the Custom Step Template folder and is inserted into a SoundCheck sequence like any other step. It offers the following controls:

1. Selection of device type (playback or recording)

2. Available device dropdown list

3. Graphical (slider control) or numeric input of volume level

4. Mute function

The Mixer Volume Custom Step is also compatible with SoundCheck 14, meaning users of this version can download and install the feature into their SC14 folder using the links below.  Complete instructions for installation and use are included. Take care to download the proper version (64 bit or 32 bit) for your version of SoundCheck.
