Play sounds and audio files directly to your stream or voice chat app with the help of this straightforward and stylish soundboard utility
While not exactly a popular type of apps out there, soundboard apps have their special place in the world. A soundboard app is a software designed to help users play short soundbites or audio clips during streams, live ads, or directly to another voice chat app.
Soundglass is one such application and, while not the most comprehensive tool of this type, it’s definitely worth considering if you’re not looking for something professional.
Well, for starters, it’s worth noting that Soundglass is an Electron-based app available for both Windows and Mac. In terms of advantages, here’s what you can expect: a very easy to use soundboard app that looks and feels modern, that’s cross-platform, and open source.
Other than that, the app also offers you keyboard shortcut support, meaning that you can play sounds or audio files effortlessly by simply using your keyboard.
Another nice aspect of Soundglass is the fact that it allows you to choose the input and output sources directly from its GUI. You can even mute the microphone input altogether and perfectly tweak the volume levels for both output devices (one being the virtual audio device, and one being either the speakers, headphones or other sources).
A few more words
Even though it can be used without one, the developer behind this app recommends that Windows users install a virtual audio device, namely VB-Cable.
To conclude, if you’re looking for a hum-drum, no fuss, no muss soundboard app for either your stream or audio calls, then you might want to consider Soundglass. As mentioned at the start of the review, it won’t impress you with its features, but even so, for a simple app such as this, it gets the job done quite nicely.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Soundglass and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
