Patchnotes via Steam Community

The changes include:


  • The hotbar can now have multiple pages.
  • Changed rendering, which is much faster with many entries.
  • Changing the grid format is now quicker and moving the window with 1000 Hz mouse polling rate on Windows 10 Build 19041 or newer lags less.

Hotkeys and Auto Keys

  • Added option, which allows to assign hotkeys to a row rather than to a sound. Pressing the hotkey will play the sound at the row of the currently selected category (File -> Preferences -> Hotkeys -> Same hotkeys in all categories).
  • Fixed: Using undo, after setting a random category hotkey, which overwrote a sound file hotkey, didn't restore the hotkey of the sound file.
  • Changed hotkey prioritization. Hotbar hotkeys now have a higher priority than random category hotkeys or sound file hotkeys. If you load a sound list, which contains sounds with hotkeys, that are already in use by the hotbar, then the hotkeys of the hotbar will prevail.
  • Fixed detection of fullscreen windows in multi-monitor setups for the Auto Key rule Press when foreground application is fullscreen.
  • Fixed Auto Keys being affected by the state of num lock, when used with particular keys like Home or End.
  • Changed Alt+Numcode recognition. It now takes the last key down on the numpad into account even if Alt is released before the numpad key.
  • Fixed: Alt+Numcode hotkeys on hotbar entries weren't saved correctly and vanished upon next start.
  • Attributes of special hotkeys are now shown in the hotkey overview, e.g. Volume up by 5% instead of just Volume up by.

Installer and compatibility updates

  • On certain audio devices Soundpad wasn't working in Skype, Lync, Microsoft Teams and similar voice applications, because they used DSP offloading, which bypassed Soundpad. This update contains a workaround to bypass their bypass. To apply it: Go to File -> Preferences -> Devices, deselect your microphone, apply, then select it again and Restart Win-Audio or your computer.
  • Fixed another problem with Nahimic related driver incompatibilities (requires reinstalling of Soundpad).
  • Fixed general incompatibility with Microsoft's Surface Pro, Microsoft's Surface Laptops, Monster Tulpar Laptops and HP Envy Laptops (requires reinstalling of Soundpad).
  • Fixed another conflict with WAVES MAXXAUDIO (requires reinstalling of Soundpad).

Remote control interface

  • Updated the remote control interface to version 1.1.1.
  • Added method: DoPlaySoundFromCategory. See reference implementation for details.
  • Added ACL to the interface, so UWP apps can access it.
  • Calls from command line are now also logged when logRcCalls is enabled.
  • Updated return codes to contain additional information about errors.


  • The sound recorder now negotiates differently with the audio drivers about the audio format. That should accommodate flaws of the drivers and fix the 88890008 error for many devices.
  • Audio files with format changes inside the stream can now be decoded properly.
  • Rename or delete categories on key down.
  • Fixed NumDel deleting the selected category, although NumDel was assigned as a hotkey and should've been blocked.
  • Added minimum size to the main window in the dark and light themes. It's not possible to resize the window until it is completely gone anymore.
  • Show correct SteamID in the About dialog instead of the multiseat account id.
  • Fixed wrong position of the register button in the About dialog.
  • Fixed crash if the Media Feature Pack is installed, but its resampler module is missing or broken.
  • Fixed occasional crash when Soundpad is launched by adding a sound from Meowpad. The sound import will now wait for Soundpad to fully initialize first.
  • Fixed occasional error message on exit of Soundpad, when the working copy of the sound list couldn't be saved on the first try.
  • The error message, that is shown if a save operation fails, now also contains an error code.
  • Fixed logger: Log level was falsely reset from NOLOG to INFO.
  • Fixed some typos in German translation.
